For a sense of scale

The weather had cleared a little by the time we were heading back down the scary switchbacks to the Geiranger fjord, so we were able to stop at the lookout.

I wish the weather had been clearer so the mountains in the background could be seen better, but I wanted to post this picture -- of the Seven Sisters waterfall -- anyway, because the ship sailing through the fjord at the bottom gives you some sense of how tall these mountains are, and how high they loom overhead when you're down in the water.

The pictures I've taken from the water just don't have anything to give that sense of scale, so although they show how beautiful the landscape is, they can't really capture the drama.
