Saksun church, built in last century in traditional style. On the back road from Saksun. Is it a horse? It looks a little strange.
       
Kollafjřrđur bay with nice clouds on hills, dissolving above the sea and reappearing on another side of the bay Old church with grass roof in Kollafjřrđur. In fact, it is not so old as it looks out - built in 1837.
