Wooden Church

Wooden Church

Chotyniec, Poland view map

Greek-Catholic Church of the Birth of Holy Mother of God, built around 1600, still in use. It is all wooden with roofs made of shingle, surrounded with low shed roofs (eaves).
The eaves were for people who were coming for an early morning Sunday mass, they used to arrive from distant villages already on Sat. evening and could hide from rain, wind or snow under this low wooden side roofing, while waiting till the next day.

Stunning old church Jola, and a wonderful capture. Just the perfect light, and the colors are beautiful.
