Iceland, Family Farm Hobbit Church

Church, Vik, Iceland
This remarkable structure sits of a farm at Nupsstadur, Skaftareppur, Vik, Iceland and is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and is believed to be typical of farms in Iceland;s past centuries. This tiny chapel is one of the few remaining turf churches in Iceland, but the entire area is a stunning sight to see.

The are a good many churches of all sizes and shapes in Iceland - I have been here many times but this last time the gate was up - the locals told me there was a family feud going on about who owns the land... Apparently the older folk have passed on...I always loved visiting this farm on my Iceland trips. This is a two image horizontal panoramic stitched in CS6.

I am planning a workshop in September - please email me for details.
