Photographer's Note

To ease the pain of my becoming a septuagenarian earlier this year, my wife very kindly treated us both to a lovely short cruise to Norway and Olden was our first port of call.

Olden is now a popular tourist resort situated at the northern end of the Oldedalen valley although the town only has a resident population of around 500. This is Olden's "old" church, built in 1759 after the old stave church on the same site was demolished in 1746. It was the only church in the Oldedalen valley until 1934 when the "new" Olden Church was completed nearby.

The old church underwent major restoration in 1969 but no longer is used as the parish church, the new church having taken over that role. It is now a tourist attraction and has some beautiful interior details. I shall try to upload a photograph of part of the interior as a workshop.

ISO 160, 1/800 sec at f/8, focal length 24mm.
