View from Undredal, Norway
Lens: DA 18-135 Camera: K-30 Photo Location: Undredal, Norway 
Posted By: AlexBW, 08-01-2021, 12:08 PM

View from the dock in Undredal (Norway), a village of about 100 people and 500 goats located along the Aurlandsfjord (branch of the Sognefjord). Only accessible by boat until 1988, before two tunnels were made to improve a nearby highway.


A stiched-panorama of the main dock:


View in the other direction:


Some of the houses:


Undredal is also located close to the the 24 km (15 miles) long Lærdal-tunnel, apparently the worlds longest tunnel (?).

You have rendered the view seen by the goats {and the people} very beautifully.

Good shots of a beautiful location. I agree with Angky, fascinating.

I believe the most common way is to pull the boats to shore with the rope that goes between the bow (front of the boat) and shore. The stern (back) is usually attached to a weighted rope or chain, running through a shackle/ring on a buoy so that the boat is pulled back out (by gravity) when you let go off the bow/shore rope. You can notice that the buoys are angled (usually towards) the boat due to the force of the stern-rope.
