Black Church, Iceland

The little black Church at Búðir on a grey, rainy and drizzly afternoon. There are many picturesque little churches located all over Iceland. Most are built in a traditional Danish style, but there are many different ones as well. I thought this little black one was striking.

The Buðir black church is one of 3 black churches in Iceland. They are black because the exterior wood is painted with pitch, just like the hull of a boat. This is to protect it from the harsh Icelandic elements. This works fairly well and buildings treated in this way have survived over 100 years.
