Preikestolen in morning sun (1)

I got up early that morning, hoping to get there before the crowds.

Some people were there before me though, they appeared to have spent the night there.

I'll try that next time, I bet the light is good at sunset.


I'm getting some peculiar flares from my Sigma 12-24, I've decided I like them.


From Wikipedia:

Preikestolen or Prekestolen, also known by the English translations of Preacher's Pulpit or Pulpit Rock, and by the old local name Hyvlatonnå (“the carpenter-plane’s blade”), is a massive cliff 604 metres (1982 feet) above Lysefjorden, opposite the Kjerag plateau, in Forsand, Ryfylke, Norway. The top of the cliff is approximately 25 by 25 metres (82 by 82 feet) square, almost flat, and is a famous tourist attraction in Norway.
