In the Valþjófsdal valley in Önundarfjörður in the Westfjords of Iceland. Originally built in 1886, the church was redone in 1978.

Lovely color combination. The small piece of snow on the mountain adds charm to the photograph.
Rajan – Lovely image, thank you.
I routinely use perspective correction in PS to fix the fact that I seem genetically incapable of holding my camera plane to subjects which require that, but I could use some education on what TS lens technology adds. Care to expand on the issue on your blog? Does the limited control in DSLR TS lenses (no film plane tilt, limited lens tilt and shift) really justify the cost and trouble?
I shall get to the topic of Tilt-Shift on my blog sometime. In addition to keeping the vertical lines vertical, I find that the Shift function affords a good deal of flexibility in composing a scene even when retention of vertical lines is not critical to the composition – such as when you want more of the foreground or obversely, more of the sky in a composition, without tilting the lens up or down.
As for Tilt – the Canon 17mm and 24mm lenses provide plenty of movement to bring the ground plane (it is a wedge, really) in focus. For the 17mm lens, less than a millimetre of tilt suffices from my full tripod height to get ‘infinite’ depth of field. For the 24mm lens it is just over 1 mm.
