Fjord, Western Norway

Photograph by Erlend Haarberg

This Month in Photo of the Day: The Power of Photography

Western Norway’s fjords—like Nærøyfjorden, northeast of Bergen and a UNESCO World Heritage site—look like fingers of the sea intruding into the land. But they are also receptacles for fresh water pouring off the peaks and ridges that surround them.

A large part of the beauty in this photo is the isolation.
