Skjolden is located in a very unique spot at the very end of the world’s longest fjord, deep in the heart of Norway. After a long day visiting the Jostedalsbreen glacier, we all came back to the town and everybody went aboard the cruise ship. I wanted to visit the Sengjaberget viewpoint, so after a long walk I arrived to this spot with amazing views of the fjord village.
By the way the cruise ship was offering a guided walk to this viewpoint, so I went there for free!

On the edge of Lake Wanaka, there stands a lone tree that grows just off the rocky shore. Over the years, I’ve seen dozens of phenomenal photographs of this location but now having experienced it in person, even the best photos seem to pale in comparison to actually being there. The quality of color and light when the sun rises here is simply exquisite, and even setting aside all things related to photography, I’m just happy I had the chance to start the day in this beautiful place.
So with that, even though I’m sad to say that another visit to New Zealand is coming to an end today, I’m very happy that Naomi and I were able to explore and photograph a few new and beautiful locations. Thanks again New Zealand. Once again It’s was a pleasure to be here.
