Hofskirkja Turf Church - Iceland - Home - Dee Potter Photography

DEE POTTER DEE POTTER

Hofskirkja is the last of the old churches to be built in this traditional turf style, and one of only six remaining in Iceland. Historical records tell of a church at Hof in Öræfi for over 700 years with the earliest mention of a church on this site from 1343. The foundation of this particular church was built in 1883-1885. And on this rainy day, the misty mountain backdrop and the lone mushroom in the foreground created an enchanting scene not unlike what parishioners must have marvelled at in centuries past.
