Photographer's Note

Kiruna Kyrka is the main church of the northernmost swedish City, Kiruna. The church is made completely out of Wood. It was built in 1912 by the architect Gustaf Wickman. The church is located in the middle of a small park, near the central Station. A wide angle lens is useful here since you cannot go far from the church without having the surrounding trees in your Image.

The City of Kiruna itself, North of the arctic circle, is a mining town in Norbottens Lšn, Sweden. The reason that a City so far up North exists is the high abundance in iron ore. The kiruna mine is one of the biggest in the world and iron ore extraction is the city's main industry.
