Jan Eide's picture


This is shot from a very small fairytale like village, by the mighty Sognefjord in Norway. In the middle of one of our Unesco`s World Heritage sites. Just a few decades ago, the communication here was only by boat. There is a tunnel now, and that makes this a very popular destination for tourists from all over the world. Still up to this day, this little village with 60 residents, has only one tiny store, with groceries and an integrated postal service. Not to mention their little church, Undredal (wooden) stave church from about year 1200. Which is Scandinavias smallest church in full use, with 40 seats. Shot with 10-16mm wide angle, for several years ago. The mountains into the fjord are actually even steeper than this image shows. I have not been agle to tweek the photo successfully back to the exact same angle, because I tilted the camera to much etc.. Edited to get the look of our national romantic paintings from the 1800`s.
