Photographer's Note

The "sand up" church - or solitude church

I’m glad to present a follow up photo to the latest posted by Manny – a sure contribution to the theme photographer at work.

Near the city Skagen can a solitude church tower be seen – I was build as part of a traditional Danish Church around 1375, for the people living nearby and served so for many years. In 1775 was it almost covered by a drifting sand dune (same destiny as for the houses around). It was given up as church in 1795 and in 1810 was the church room destructed, but the tower was kept as a seamark – which it also have served for centuries.
The “church” actually used in the summertime for open-air services.

Thanks a lot for the meeting – I was glad you had the good weather with you to Denmark – but it seems you took it with you when you left for Norway and Sweden ;-)))

Iso 80 - F/5.6 - Shutter 1/640 - After seeing the bright photo taken by Manny, should I may be have done some more PP here.

A view from the tower can be seen here and here.
