Hallgrímskirkja means in Icelandic “church of Hallgrímur”. The church is named after the Icelandic poet and clergyman Hallgrímur Pétursson (1614–1674). Hallgrímskirkja is 74,5 m high. It is one of the city’s best known locations and is visible throughout the whole city. It took even 41 years to build the church. The construction started in 1945 and ended in 1986. It’s exterior looks fascinating and is definitely an unique structure but what you will see inside is also breathtaking. It is worth seeing and taking photographs of it. I used the Tokina 11-20 mm f/2.8 wide angle lens at 11 mm to show more geometric details of the Hallgrímskirkja ceiling in just one frame. Thanks to “Tokina Polska” and “NEXT77” who supplied me with this gear. This is the result. For higher resolution and more B&W Digital photographs visit the gallery

Additionally I am attaching below setup preview of taking that photograph. “The making of” picture was taken with mobile phone.
