"A Vision In Black"

What appears as a lone black spot on the southern end of the Snæfellsnes peninsula is actually a striking 18th-century church that sits amid a bed of lava rocks. Tucked away in its namesake hamlet of Búðir, the church paints an unusual figure, cloaked in jet black shades. This stunning monochromatic landmark only has random remnants of lava for company, carelessly strewn across the vast landscape. Dating back to 1703, this matte black church was erected, deconstructed, and later re-erected in 1987. It still retains curios like a bell and chalice from its original structure. With a historic graveyard in its backyard, the near-spectral scream of the common snipe bird and the remote location of the church, the Búðakirkja cuts a hauntingly beautiful picture on the Icelandic landscape.
