Pictures from the county Rogaland:
It is said that the rich and diverse scenery of Rogaland is responsible for the diversity of its people. The county contains most of what Norway has to offer in terms of nature; mountains with snow and ice that never melt, untamed fjords, fertile pastures and bare shorelines. In Jæren the land is so flat you can se the curvature of the earth. Norway’s most beautiful beaches are also found here.
Large sections of this coast are protected. However, nothing can protect the land from the sea itself. Sometimes the water washes tenderly over the white beaches; other times its wild energy slams against the smooth rocks. The author Alexander Kielland described the relationship the people of Rogaland have with the sea: They live their whole lives facing seaward. The sea is their companion, counsellor, friend, enemy, livelihood and graveyard.
