Norway: Waterfalls

Norway's waterfalls are especially nice in the springtime, when they are fed by the melting snow. Seeing a waterfall is a tremendous experience. The roar of rushing water. The cool spray hitting your face. The rainbow that forms in the mist. The constantly changing forms and patterns that emerge out of the turbulence. From every angle one experiences something new...



About the Scenic Snaps

We saw literally hundreds of waterfalls during our week long bus tour of Norway. These pictures represent only a few (but don't worry, they are the best few)...

  • Notice the hideous collection of fish at the Bergen Fish Market. One looks like Jabba-the-Hut.
  • The flowers were outside Edvard Grieg's home in Bergen. He was a very famous Norwegian composer. He composed most of the music you have been hearing at this web site (if you haven't heard anything turn up the volume and reload this page). "Morning Mood", "Hall of the Mountain King", and "March of the Dwarfs" are a few of his most famous works...
  • Notice the gift shop right below the split waterfall. Capitalism abounds in Norway (but don't worry, I didn't see any billboards that ruined the scenery)...
  • Notice the tiny people standing beside (and walking underneath) the one waterfall. It was huge!
