L'extérieur de cette petite église est assez original avec ce portique en bois qui semble presqu'aussi grand que l'église elle-même. Malgré la présence des arbres, on réussit à avoir une bonne vue d'ensemble. Bien fait.

a fascinating little church this and a shot that captures its setting and uniqueness so beautifully. So much character and history here and made all the more compelling on reading your commentary and seeing the workshop image. Amazing!
