Artist's Description

This church is named after a great psalms poet an priest who lived there. It is a beautiful church and the view out to the sea is fantastic. I have posted photos from there before but this is the newest in my collection.
Hallgrímur Pétursson (1614 – October 27, 1674) was one of Iceland’s most famous poets and a minister at Hvalneskirkja and Saurbær in Hvalfjörður. The Hallgrímskirkja in Reykjavík and the Hallgrímskirkja in Saurbær are named after him. He was one of the most influential pastors during the Age of Orthodoxy (1580-1713). Because of his contributions to Lutheran hymnody, he is sometimes called the Icelandic Paul Gerhardt.
