Photographer's Note

Soknedal is a little hamlet some 65 km south of Trondheim in Central Norway.

Soknedal has 2-3 shops, a gas station, a church and a school and inhabitants basically make a living from farming and forestry. And from ages back they have a reputation for being cheap and greedy but don’t let them know I said that! Whatever, the fact is that one of Norway’s richest men comes from Soknedal…

Besides, the double Olympic Champion Magnar Solberg was born and grew up here, Solberg won the biathlon in Grenoble 1968 and in Sapporo 1972.

What you see here is the view from the church, nicely located in the hillside overlooking the valley. The construction was finished in 1933, the church is seating 500 and replacing an older small church in the same site.

The workshop image shows the church of Soknedal.

I experienced this was a difficult church to photograph, as close-ups were out of question either because of trees or airborne cables.
