Norwegian national anthem springs to mind when I see this photograph… On a ferry over a fjord on the journey between Alta and Narvik. Will try to find out the name of the fjord some day.
I was very happy to be able to catch the flag in the exact way that I wanted: out in full with just a little rippling. I did manage to get it full and totally straight too, but this one pleased me more…
Ja, vi elsker dette landet, som det stiger frem,
furet, værbitt over vannet, med de tusen hjem.
Elsker, elsker det og tenker på vår far og mor og den saganatt som senker drømmer på vår jord.
Yes, we love this land as it rises forth, rugged and weather-bitten (?!) over the water, with the thousand homes. Love, love it and thinking of our father and mother and the saga night which descends/sinks (casts?) dreams over our Earth.
approximate translation by myself :)
