Like you I wait a long time sometimes, but I'm glad it is you who have opened this one Mira. This is a very common style of church in Norway. Many have been superseded by more modern buildings with better facilities. But the old ones still stand and are used as well. You can see the lighting for the school sports field in the background. Thank you for this lovely comment as always.

The 3 windows are mandatory Mira!

Hello Arthur, you have spent a lot of time searching through my gallery, and I am delighted you have found this little church in Tananger. Thank you for your lovely comment too. These simple churches are fairly common in Norway. This one is only used occasionally, as they have build a much grander one almost next door to it. The new one is nowhere near as attractive though :)

Greetings, Amelia
