Autumn vs. Winter

Autumn vs. Winter

A diptych showing autumn and winter at the medieval church in Västerhaninge. The old church dates back 800 years. Lightning has struck the tower twice. The church was rebuilt after the latest fire back in 1831. Some reconstruction was made and the tower is now only thirty meters high compared with fifty five before the fire. Many of my relatives rest at the graveyard here, including my dad who died a decade ago. I have showed you this church a few times before, and this is also where that good looking priest, Sara works.

What a nice church. I like both views, and I do remember the good looking Sara : )

Keep showing pictures of Spring, it's a lot easier to prepare for warm weather than for cold.

A heavenly looking church during any season! You have many reasons to visit that church! Halsa fran Hagen til Sara

I really like these "now and then" shots Steffe. You certainly have a connection with this place having family there.

superbe idée, moi je préfère l'hiver, mais parce qu'on rarement de la neige sur Evry et j'adore ça.

Nice job putting the two photos together! That is a beautiful church no matter what season it is.

Very nicely done. Now we know where to find Sara, too.

Neat photo! I sort of like it better in winter. The snow looks beautiful among the graves.

I also like the winter version. Wonder if we'll have any winter this year.

Thanks all. The weather is still crap so I will probably make a few more diptychs in the coming days, or weeks.

I'm no church goer, but some of the people I have talked to lately seem to know Sara and if I see here again some day I will tell her you said hello Leif!

Spring photos seems like a good idea.

It still looks very scenic in both seasons, gosh wish we got snow here :-)
