The Wooden Architecture Route [6] - Wolowiec

Today next two photos from Wolowiec. In the second photo you can see one of the gravestones from small and old cementary near the church.
Some of the tombstones are not in good condition. The inscriptions are written in the Cyryllic alphabet (Lemkos use it). It makes that sometimes you can feel there more like in Ukraine or Belarus than in Poland:)

Nice photo of the church, but I liked very much the second shot with that tombstone. Any way to get some more of these? Is it typical that these wooden churches have cemeteries?

Dear friends m2!
These three are different from each other and this difference gives a special detail in this picture! Great composition!
This place is really cool!

I've never seen this type of wooden architecture - thanks for sharing the different views, the different locations and the details.

That stone does look a bit worn when enlarging the photo.

Każde zagięcie dachu ma dla specjalistów znaczenie. A ciekawe co z tego rozumieją postronni :)
