[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This view, seen by thousands every year. A magnificant view into "Lysefjorden" in Rogaland, Norway. They are all lined up, the photographer is ready to shoot them with his camera on the edge of the 600 meters high "Pulpit Rock". Just 50-100cm behind them there is free fall to the bottom in the ocean of Lysefjorden.

In the backround on the right side is the well know "Kjerag" platou, raging 1000 meters above sea level, where base jumpers throw themselves off the cliff for a few seconds of adrealin kick.

The walk up here takes about 2 hours. The route climbs from just below 300 meters to 600 meters in a few kilometers. The trail is of everything between comfortable gravel paths to difficult steep screes.

Also check my picture on trekearth to get a full view of the "Pulpit Rock"

Hei Joar,

In more than one way, personally I would not be able to photograph at all in a place like this (I think!)...
A well framed scenery, amazing sense of depth and good details!
Maybe the scene would be even better without the standing guy?

Hi Joar,
Amazing landscape, spectecular environement. Very goog POV of this small trekking group. Well done!
Best wishes,

Hi Joar...nice job on this shot...you captured something that most photographers miss...your perspective is great and the details and people in the foreground make the picture unique.
