This is the view looking down towards Sognefjord – the longest and deepest fjord in Norway – 1308 metres.. – 4291 ft.

We travelled up and down this road by 40+ seater bus and because of the 13 sharp hairpins and 18% incline and the narrow road, the section of the bus in front of the wheels was over the edge. We managed to get front seats above and in front of the driver’s seat and so were out “in space” on each of the turns – awesome! It was also exciting when another bus had to pass us – not much space between them.

I am a keen amateur photographer (progressing from a Brownie Box to digital) who loves to combine travel and photography. I have travelled extensively in Australia and New Zealand with other trips to parts of UK & Europe, USA, Africa, Scandinavia and Canada. My photography reflects my interest in culture, scenery and wildlife relating to these travels.

    What a gorgeous view. Were you on the bus when you took this shot. Such a wonderful thing to see.

  • Hi Elisab, Yes we were in the bus and as you can see we were “out there”.
    We don’t have the high mountains in Australia that are in countries like Norway, Switzerland and the States, so we really enjoy the opportunity to get views like this when we travel overseas. Thanks for your comment. Marg
