Photographer's Note

This is the typical church architecture we can find all over the Norwegian countryside.

The building material is timber, the church can seat 210 and was finished in 1911, architect was Lars A Mogstad. Since then the building has been restored several times. The chapel is serving the hamlet Rindalsskogen in a mountain area in Møre og Romsdal county.

Øvre Rindal chapel is located near Trollheimen National Park, and the surroundings are typical farmland with sheep and cows.

One thing I have noticed is that rural churches usually have trees planted around and on the graveyard, but always is that birch and never evergreens. I wonder why?
