This is a view of Preikestolen (Preacher's Pulpit Rock), which overlooks Lysenfjord. It was a foggy and overcast day, but the fog receded enough to get a few photographs. The place where the people are in the photo is 604 meters above the water. To get to this location you have to hike for about two hours each way.

I had heard about Pulpit Rock before. This is quite astonishing, but it appears that there is no bannister to keep people, especially children from the edge (I can see one on the right). Thanks for sharing this remarkable view.
