Straumshornet og tåke

Foto fra Stave ved Ikornnes. Riksheim til høyre. Fjellet heter Straumshornet og finnes på så mange av mine bilder at jeg har laget et eget set for det.


Photo across the inner part of Sykkylvsfjorden, a small arm of Storfjorden (which is known by those visiting Geiranger by boat).The mountain Straumshornet is found on several of my photos and has got a set by itself (see to the right).


By the way, "Tåke" (pronounced "talk-eh") means fog. "Straumshornet" means the horn (commonly used name for such mountains) by "Straumen" (the stream), which is the name for a very, very short river - one of the shortest in the world. If you don't believe me, take a look here:
