When you're surrounded by majestic Norwegian nature, it's very easy to start thinking about stuff you don't have time to in everyday life.
Often described as nature’s own work of art, enjoying the magic of the Fjords can be an enchanting journey through some of the most scenic places of the world. The combination of spectacular mountains and waterfalls that are often remote and unspoiled create a stunning landscape that has changed very little since the very first people settled in these areas, and these natural pieces of art are often seeked out when one wants to escape the turmoil of the everyday life and immerse in something untouched and undisturbed. The unique scenery created by the placid waters and the high mountains becomes even more incredible during winter, when the Northern Lights bathe every surrounding in the most spectacular light show on Earth.
As a particular body of water different from any other lake, the relative warmth of the ocean keeps the fjord area relatively warm throughout the winter, so that the water doesn’t freeze over. The lake colors of the fjords reflect the shades of the surrounding landscapes, the winter sky and the dark of the mountains, creating a blue that seems almost foggy and filled with shadows.
Even in winter an isolated patch of snow has a special quality.
Earth is ancient now, but all knowledge is stored up in her.
— Jeanette Winterson
There are many majestic sights all around the Earth, and mountains are definitely some of them. Either as beautiful as gritty cathedrals, or long and narrow like natural mazes, they are natural masterpieces worth seeing, especially during winter, where snow covers the ground and every light reflects on the pure white of it. The variation of browns, greys and blacks create a stunning dimension that only the roughest part of Earth can showcase.
The main reason for the creation of Fjords, glaciers flow like very slow rivers and carve deep valleys and is why fjords can be thousands of meters deep. The sheer majesty of the ice formations can greatly alter the landscape once they have moved through an area. Ice is a perfect color to use, with shades that can vary from pure white, to cream to a very light icy blue, the best choice for environments that needs a neutral color palette.
Ice contains no future, just the past, sealed away.
