Looks like St. Olaf gets the last word in the evening sky!

I must correct Sandy Carlsson: The statue is of Olav Trygvasson who founded Trondheim, Not Olav Haraldsson who became St. Olav (or St. Olaf).

Just being pedantic.

(Thank you for sharing it!)

This is such a massive statue, Gerald. I wonder why people thought it had to be quite that imposing to honour his memory. I do like the greyness of the sky.

This statue reminds me of the poem by Shelley about Ozymandias. It is all about the power of nature and the mortality of man.
