The village of Sigtuna, outside of Stockholm is the oldest surviving one in Sweden, dating from the 10th century.
On my current trip to Europe I have previously posted photos of a couple of Russia's most famous churches. Today it is an older one, St Olof which dates from the 12th century but has been a ruin since the 17th century. Despite being a ruin it is quite impressive.

Bonne composition, l'ensoleillement crée un bel éclat sur ces vieilles pierres.
Bon cadrage avec la ruine et la végétation.

Very impressive place and you captured excellent textural detail in these old walls. The hollow windows and ruined state speak volumes about its age and what this old church has seen. I love the idea you had to compose half grey stone and half vivid green, it works brilliantly against this lovely active blue sky.
Thanks for sharing

This is a fine shot of this church in ruins. The placement of the church is great using the trees for balance. The lighting and colors are great as is the photo's sharpness and detail.

J'aime beaucoup le point de vue ainsi que le cadrage . On sent bien la texture de la vieille pierre grâce à cette superbe lumière qui fait briller l'ensemble.
