Hardanger fjord is known in Norway for being an agricultural hub for fruit growing, now with spring in the air - everything was coming to life
The fjord covers a large landmass, but only 70 thousand people live in the region
Here the fjord separates into two branches... later on it separates again. The fact that each fjord has many branches gives Norway one of the longest coast lines in the world.
Its May and there is still snow in the moutains... feeding waterfalls...
What a place to live at...
Eidfjord (Its a small town, that sits on a branch of the Hardanger fjord)
I took a bus that goes to Voringfossen, we drove down (and climbed up) this canyon - Mabodalen
Now hold that thought for a second...
Voringfossen, a 182 meter waterfall
Very hard to capture due to location and angle available
The voringfossen has two falls, this is the main fall, behind it there is another smaller fall
Opposite Voringfossen - another smaller fossen with quite a fall
There is actually another small fossen that falls nearby it
and yet another Fossen... the melting of winter snow makes the region Fossen-rich!

In the distance under the cloud, Norway's 3rd largest glacier - Folgefonn
Lofthus village, nearby Folgefonn glacier
Lofthus residents enjoy quite the view
Catamaran made waves
10 minute walk from Norheimsund, a nameless fossen
Actually, I think this a temporary spring time only fossen
Steindalsfossen, 20 minute walk from Norheimsund
Steindalsfossen in long exposure
It is possible to walk behind Steindalsfossen

I didn't get wet at all
Fossen on the rocks!
