Back to Horne

Horne is a small town, situated in the south of Funen:

Lars and I visited the church of Horne 2 years ago; it’s the only round church of Funen and it was the setting for a Danish dark comedy, Adam’s Apples. We came back, because in 2012 I had the idea of converting all my pictures to b&w and deleting all the originals…

Anyway, this is how the exterior of the church looks like during a cloudy spring day:

Usually, Danish churches are closed on Saturdays, but we were lucky. The local organ player was rehearsing, so we could visit Horne church after all. The reason why I insisted on coming back here and taking color pictures is because of the charming blue interior.

Mission accomplished! It was such a beautiful afternoon that Lars and I decided to continue our drive. We went south and stumbled upon Bojden Nor, a beautiful coastal lagoon. Because of the many species of migratory birds, this is a protected area.

15 minutes later, Lars and I were in Dyreborg:

This was our second time here. 2 years ago, it was raining; this time, there were sun and clouds. I simply love this beach…

    The white interior of the church is very restful.

      A movie has been taken in and around this church. And it wasn’t restful.But we went to see the church, and yes, then it really did look restful. Most Danish churches are white inside, and many ourtside too. Especially those, which are up to a thousand years old.

      It is a beautiful church. One of the few Danish round churches, which aren’t situated on Bornholm. They are round, because they were used for fortification.
