Trollstigen

So, the Norwegians love a good tunnel, but.. it appears from time to time they like a good windy road, maybe its the joy of watching people cycle up these or something to keep the motorcycle population happy, in anycase, this one (Trollstigen) is certainly a cracker, even in our little stationwagon punching on up this road it was pretty hair raising, especially when a bus came the other way!

The viewing platform up the top is neat, but I think I need a bigger camera, i could not fit all those norwegian hills in 😉 even at 16mm and 9 portrait frames stitched together I could not get all of the big waterfall in 🙂

The bottom of the where the windy bit starts is about 300m above SL, this spot here is 700m above SL, not a bad hill climb.

It would be awesome to do a night time shoot here and get the car trails in the frame, however for me with the sun not really setting until 12 midnight there was no hope, I'll let that go to the keeper for the next visit 😉
