Norway’s fjords

Norway’s Nærøyfjord

My random, desktop image of the day is this one from my trip to Norway a couple years ago.

My random image for today is another photo from Norway. Norway’s fjords reminded me of a cross between Hawaii and Yosemite. In just over a week I’ll be in Yosemite. I’m bringing along The Photographer’s Guide to Yosemite. Hopefully the weather will cooperate like it did on the day I did Norway in a Nutshell.

Norway in a Nutshell

Norway in a Nutshell

Norway in a Nutshell” is the name put together for a trip along the Bergen Railway Line that includes the Flåm Railway (the steepest unassisted railway in the world) down from Myrdal to Flam, a boat ride in an amazing fjord for a couple of hours, and a bus ride from Gudvangen to Voss. Where you start and end is up to you, and the price varies based on passes you may already have and where you begin and end your journey. I had a Eurail Pass so it costed me very little.

Norway’s fjords are absolutely amazing. Sometimes photos don’t do them justice because you can’t really tell how impressive the size is from a picture. I like this next photo because you can see just how tiny the boat in the fjord is compared to the fjord itself. (That’s a boat and the boat’s wake to the left of the photo. You may need to click on the image after maximizing your browser to see it well.) I was also on a boat in the middle of the fjord at the time I took this.

Aurlandsfjord in Sognefjord, Norway

Norway was a fine trip these past four days. The weather was fantastic. I did the “Norway In A Nutshell” leg from Oslo to Bergen (and back) on the Bergen Line. At Myrdal you can get on a different train and go down to Flam where the Aurlandsfjord, pictured above, begins.
