Mardalsfossen
Lens: HD-DA 16-85mm Camera: Pentax K30 Photo Location: Norway 
Posted By: Janse, 08-02-2017, 03:26 PM

The waterfall Mardalsfossen is situated in Eikesdal. It is one of the ten highest waterfalls in Europe. The total fall is 705 m (2,313 ft).


In 1970 a none violent action against hydro power took place, protesting against building a dam and the subsequent removal of the waterfall. Arne Naess, a well known Norwegian philosopher and the founder of the Deep Ecology movement tied himself with 300 others in protest against the hydro electrical project. (A. N. was the uncle of A. N. Jr. married to Diana Ross). Now the waterfall only exists from 20. June to 20. August with a flow of 3 cubic metres per second

All time high registration of the flow is 45 cubic metres per second.

Lovely photograph and interesting story. How are these difficult decisions made, even more difficult now? It is a question of value, and not to be made quickly. Thank you for sharing, they really are beautiful and it is hard to understand that they could ever be shut down.

Tank you Jacquot!
It is not easy but a rich land like Norway should have conserved the most spectacular pearls in Norwegian nature in my opinion.
