Fjords of Norway
The fjords of Norway are really beautiful. They are long, narrow, and crooked. They are bounded by soaring mountains, with streams of rocks rolling down the mountains. There are occasional patches of bright green, sloping fields, some of which are dotted with small, colorful houses. The water is calm, clean, cold and dark.
The calm is broken by an occasional dolphin (porpoise?) jumping out of the water. But they are really hard to catch - with a camera, I mean.
Everywhere one looks, it is as beautiful as a postcard. But this is summer. How does one live here in winter?
