The ruling element in Norway is water. It surrounds the country with a coast to three points of the compass, in countless fjord arms it grasps deep into the heart of the country and it thunders down to the valleys in thousands of waterfalls.
During the last ice age the glaciers carved huge valleys and fjords into the rock and gave Norway the craggy image it has today. The country is wild and lusty, the climate is rough and in winter there are sometimes months of darkness.
Among these dimensions people always had to take second place to nature. Anyone visiting Norway must admire the boldness of the people who live here braving the elements.
But, anyone who is prepared to enter the country is richly rewarded by experiences in extraordinary surroundings. Here in the sparsely populated North one can still experience some of the nativeness sought in vain in other parts of Europe.
Gereon Roemer has sought out all these locations and many more. In excellent pictures he introduces the country and its people and his love of the country enables him to capture it with his camera.
