Weekly Photo Challenge: One Shot-Two Ways 08-09-2013

Tvindefossen – Voss, Norway

For this weeks photo challenge of “one shot-two ways” I chose the beautiful Tvindefossen falls located about 9 miles outside of Voss, Norway. It is situated along the major highway running between Voss and Flåm, which makes it easy to access and therefore is among the most popular and famous waterfalls in Norway. Although the drainage area for the stream isn’t large by Norwegian standards, the Kroelvi produces a powerful waterfall as it thunders 379 feet over a rugged cliff and descends an immensely photogenic series of stairsteps before flowing through a meadow below. Because of the small size of each step and the lack of uniformity of the steps across the broad width of the falls, it’s hard to conclusively determine exactly how many steps the falls consist of, but we would conservatively say at least 10 distinct tiers are present.
