I like to think that the above photograph of Briksdalen has some mystery about it - what happens behind that line of trees that bisects the torrent? In even a large print it is not easy to see what this photograph is, but what it shows is the Briksdal glacier "tongue" of the Jostedal Glacier in the distance. The river in the foreground is the (very cold!) melt running from the glacier towards Lake Olden and Nordfjord, just a few kilometers down the valley. What is not obvious in this view is the scale. The top of the glacier is at 1200m above sea level and the river at this point is probably 800m lower. From the line of trees to the glacier itself is more than a kilometer.
