The Tvinde Waterfall

Ca 12 km utenfor Voss finner vi en populær foss med mange navn: Tvinnefossen, eller Trollafossen, men her altså Tvindefossen! Fossen har en fallhøyde på 110 meter eller – kanskje 150 meter – litt avhengig av hvordan den måles. Den er uansett et populært turist-mål i denne del av landet!
Approximately 8 miles North of the settlement of Voss (I’m not sure if it qualifies to be a city just yet) lies a popular tourist destination: A waterfall named ‘Trollafoss’, ‘Tvinnefoss’
or as in this presentation: ‘Tvindefoss’!  The fall itsels had been measured to 363 feet or if you take it all in: 495 feet! nyway it’s a very popular tourist destination in this part of our country!

    A beautiful waterfall. In Iceland waterfalls are called ‘fossen’ as well….. Definitely going to Norway again!

      There are similarities in the languages throughout Scandinavia, but even in Iceland and the Orkneys. Finland, however, is a bit different!

      We are really trying to keep it that way, and even if our rivers and waterfalls probably will remain pristine and clear, our coastline is slowly getting riddled with plastic of all kinds drifting in from everywhere. I just read that today sience estimates that there are now more plastic in our oceans than fish and other creatures. That ought to be a warning signal, but if you look to large rivers – especially in Asia – they use the rivers as to get rid of plastic pollution and millions of tons from each river every year gets emptied into the oceans! But even if it can no longer be seen, it doesn’t disappear!!!

    Beautiful shot! There’s something about waterfalls that is majestic and yet serene.
