From the Island of Vestvaagoey

Jeg vil gjerne vise dere et panoramabilde tatt i øygruppen ‘Lofoten’ på øya
‘Vestvågøy’ som viser hvordan lokale fiskere nærmest klorer seg fast i strandkanten under til dels rasfarlige fjell, men her inne fant de ly for farlige vinterstormer. Jeg vet nesten ikke hva som er verst?
Disse norske fjellene går for å ha noen av de eldste bergarter man har påvist på Jorden:
Ca 3 milliarder år gamle!
Today I’ll present you with a panorama picture from the archipelago of ‘Lofoten’ at the island of ‘Vestvaagoey’ that may give you an impression of how local fishermen built their homes along the shorelines – in jeopardy of dangerous rock slides, but – inside these mountains they found a safe shelter from hazardous winter storms. I really don’t know which choice would be the best in the long run?
The mountains you see include some of the oldest rock found on ‘Mother Earth’ – approximately  3 billion years old!

(Compliments of SRB)
Please return me to INDEX for a new picture/destination.
