Photographer's Note

When visiting Aalesund, I took a ferry to Hareid, took a bus from there to Ulsteinvik (where Rolls Royce was made), and then rode another 15 minute (in my cousin's car) to the capsule of a town called Flo.

This town, like so many others I have been attracted to, is next to impossible to find on even the most detailed atlas. It is impossible to find in any travel guide. Which is just as well, because it is beautiful, like most of Western Norway, and remote, like many other cities of Western Norway.

I loved this shot. It took me an hour to walk from the end of the actual city of Flo (a rocky beach) to the entrance sign of Flo. A city so small (about 15 houses) that it hardly deserves a sign to mark it. An epitome of Norway itself, a country so small and yet so breathtakingly beautiful.

The mountain in the background was too overexposed, so I worked on the levels in PS, as well as adding a slight wide angle filter to the shot.
