If you’ve seen this post’s title in your RSS feed or on Twitter, I’m sure you must be wondering if it’s a spelling mistake or if that’s the actual name for something! Well, HallgrÃmskirkja is a Lutheran church in Iceland and over the years it has become one of Reykjavik’s major attractions.
It took just over 38 years for the church to be built and the construction was completed in 1986. Although from outside it looks impressive, the inside is quite spartan and the main interest point is its 74 meter tall observation tower which gives you a great overview of the city below.
I had quite a few problems photographing the church as I was there only during the midday sun and the light was never quite right. That’s why I went for a more dramatic angle and processing focusing on the blue reflections on the stained glass. As always, it would be nice to hear what you think about the shot.
