Hallgrímskirkja at Night
Hallgrímskirkja is a Lutheran parish church in Reykjavík, Iceland. At 73 metres (244 ft), it is the largest church in Iceland and among the tallest structures in Iceland. The church is named after the Icelandic poet and clergyman Hallgrímur Pétursson. State Architect Guðjón Samúelsson's design of the church was commissioned in 1937. He is said to have designed it to resemble the basalt lava flows of Iceland's landscape. The statue of explorer Leif Eriksson by Alexander Stirling Calder in front of the church predates its construction.
I captured this image during my November 2016 trip and was able to gain a sense of motion from the long exposure with the clouds in the background.
