That is a very handsome, nicely proportioned church.

I really like the shadows the tree has cast. The grave markers are an interesting touch too.

Nice and simple — I like it.

Beautiful church...I was bridesmaid at my sister's wedding here in 1996

I agree. The tree makes the shot.

Is this kind of church typically open around the clock? That used to be the state of affairs in Sweden but over the recent decades we've gotten used to locked doors and strictly limited opening hours. For security reasons, obviously...

You do have many beautiful churches.

PS Any relationship to Sir Isaac?

Nice that you didn't get the parallax on the church or was it adjusted?
