With almost 500 meters above sea level you can see down to one of the most treacherous stretches for seafarers along the Norwegian coast. The weather can turn in the blink of an eye, making this idyllic scenery to a nightmare of strong current and gale wind. Many ships have ended their journey in these waters.
The spectacular panoramic view from West Cape might lead you to believe its the western most place in Norway, witch its not (its Vardetangen close to Bergen by the way).

When I was looking through our archive here the other day, I came across these photos. They where taken many years ago and no post processing has been done to them, just jpeg straight out of the camera. Sometimes the nature gives us something so special and unreal, we can hardly believe it, and the only thing we can say is WOW!
