Breathtaking view of Nærøydalen valley and Kjelfossen waterfall from Stalheimskleiva. During our Scandinavian trip in 2016, we'd had a drive on this picturesque road the second time. It was a warm sunny day, and we walked around a bit enjoying the views.

We've been there the first time in 2013 during "Norway in a Nutshell" tour. This part of the journey we'd made by bus. It was the scariest part of that trip because we'd never experienced the serpentines before and the buses are big on these very narrow roads. That day was moody and rainy. We'd just made a shortstop and I even didn't go out of the bus. So I shoot right through the window.
