Photograph of a sunset over the Hof Church in Iceland. Dating back to 1884, Hof is the newest turf-roofed church in the country, and the only one to still have an active congregation.
Turf buildings provided Icelanders with an early form of heating. The church is sunk partly into the ground and covered with earth and grass, insulating it from the cold on both sides.
