Photographer's Note

This is the steep fjord near Eidfjord, in Souther Norway, a small village at the end of the very long fjord called Hardangerfjorden (hopefully the spelling is correct) in the region of Hordaland.
The fjord can be seen in its full glory from a vista point reachable by car few Kilometers above Eidjord.

Just a curiosity: althought this is the sea which penetrates hundreds of Km into the mainland, the water is not salty at all here at the end of the fjord. I was surprised about that.
There are so many waterfalls and melting glaciers whose water get into the fjord here, to make it unsalty.
