Photographer's Note

Another image (scanned) of my trip to Norway 2001: Stave Church of Vik.
On the south shore of the Sognefjord, set between high mountains, we find the small town of Vik. Hopperstad stave church, built in 1130, is a perfect example of sacred architecture in Norway. The roof steps down cascade upward to heaven while the interior consists of arcaded gallery encircles the central piece and three naves.



Une autre image (scann嶪) de mon voyage en Norv銶e de 2001 : l'嶲lise en bois debout de Vik.
Sur la rive sud du Sognefjord, ench滻s entre les hautes montagnes, on retrouve la petite ville de Vik. Hopperstad stavkirke, construite en 1130, est un exemple parfait d'architecture sacr嶪 en Norv銶e. Le toit de marches descendant en cascade monte vers le ciel alors que, de l'int廨ieur, une galerie constitu嶪 d'arcades encercle la pi鋃e centrale et ses trois nefs.
