The sort of thing I remember having seen in the fjords around Trondheim. Some left-overs from way back.
Tom Wilson: I guess it could well have been a Baltic/Nordic practice in times gone by.
A great sky backdrop for the shrine.
Tom Wilson: It was a lovely cloudy day smile
I am enjoying this series, Tom, with its creative shrines...
Tom Wilson: The last of the shrines, but more of Lithuania to come smile
They are certainly lovely pieces of work.
Tom Wilson: They are indeed, Brian.
