Inside the Old Norse Church (AKA St. Olaf's or The Old Rock Church) by 

I have and will continue to photograph the exterior of this beautiful church, but many have previously inquired as to the appearance of the interior of this wonderful edifice. As such, I felt compelled to both photograph the inside of the building and wanted to share the simplistic beauty of this chapel. According to anecdotal information I have gathered from my many visits to this location, the Christmas service is a treat, as there is still no electricity at this location so the entire service is lit by candles. I will definitely endeavor to attend the Christmas service at some future point, as I would delight in seeing the interior under candlelight.
