Most of this set of photos were taken on a walk we made from Olden towards Loen Fjord. As we were making our way a strange disturbance of the water on Nordfjord made its way in from the seaward end of the fjord. I supposed it might have been the tide coming in but we were so far from the open sea there were no waves as such.

The views and the open water to the left as we made our way westwards with the hills on the other side reminded me of the road from Helensburgh, 8 miles north of Dumbarton, towards Rhu and the Gareloch. The mouth of Loen Fjord (photo taken from Nordfjord, when sailing away from Olden) is flanked by higher mountains though:-

Olden, Norway

Olden is a small anchorage at the end of the Nordfjord, Norway. The town is no more than a village and sits at the mouth of the Oldeelva river on the southern shore of the Nordfjord.

The houses there are typically Norwegian, built of wood and traditionally constructed:-
