Sunbreak Over Djurgårdskyrkan by mixbsd

Taken around 1800h local time on a mostly cloudy day, the setting sun briefly broke through the cloud cover just above Djurgårdskyrkan in Stockholm, Sweden

A sight to behold, only the crepuscular rays were missing!

I really couldn’t crop this image any more, as I would have lost the sheer vastness of the beautiful sky. Unfortunately, the overhead tram power lines do provide a bit of distraction.

Stockholm Gustaf Vasa Kyrka (Interior 1) by mixbsd

Gustaf Vasa Church (Swedish: Gustaf Vasa kyrka) is a church located in the Vasastaden district of Stockholm, Sweden. Inaugurated in 1906 and named after 16th century King Gustav Vasa, it was designed by architect Agi Lindegren in the Baroque Revival style.

Situated between two busy avenues partially lined with trees, its dome rises 60 metres (200 ft) above the nearby Odenplan plaza. The floor plan is in the shape of a Greek cross and seats 1,500 people, making it one of the largest churches in Stockholm.

This is a 10-image stitched panorama.
