I’m a city person, but I do enjoy getting away and being in nature…as long as I can return to a shower and clean bed in the evening. When in nature, I am always fascinated at how simple things are, how different life is, and how we take so much like technology for granted. I took this picture while hiking in Norway. There was a heard of goats just chillin’ on the mountains that form the side of the Geiranger Fjord. It was striking at how different they live, and the farmers life is from mine.
The Seven Sisters Waterfall is located in the Geiranger Fjord in Norway. It is a beautiful sight, the steep walls of the fjord and the water cascading over it making for a dramatic landscape. The waterfall is 820 ft/250 m. The folklore says that the streams of the waterfall each represents one of seven beautiful sisters. The waterfall on the other side of the fjord is shaped as a bottle, supposedly because it asked each of the seven sisters to marry him. When they all declined, he became an alcoholic. The Norwegians are very creative with their fairy tales, I guess such a landscape simply inspires the imagination.
