Snapshot Sunday: Norwegian Fjords

I’ve been a tad obsessed with my recent shots from my time in Norway this summer, but for good reason.  Norwegian fjords and landscapes are so stunning I keep going back to my photos in disbelief.

I knew what a fjord was visually, but I couldn’t have told you what the land mass was by definition, aside from some large mountains surrounding some small waterways.  Fjords are formed from glacial erosion, so being in a boat, looking up, stretching your neck to take in these massive rock formations was all the more impressive.  Pictures don’t do the scene justice, the icy glaciers atop the mountains, the cascading waterfalls pouring into the inlets below, our vessel skimming along water that could realistically be from the ice ages!  Nothing brings some perspective like being in such a significant and towering natural phenomenon.
