The valley of Rossfjord begins with a river, which becomes a fresh water lake which in turn empties into the sea via a small river. The main road runs down one side of the valley and then divides just before the river enters the sea. Because it’s the main road, that’s the route we have always taken, but yesterday it was closed for repairs, forcing me to drive the minor route on the other side of the valley with new perspectives. The road surface is really terrible and the beautiful views make it even more dangerous!
On the outward journey the skies were cloudless, but there wasn’t time to stop for pictures. However, the return journey was a little more relaxed and despite gathering clouds in the distance, the sun was still strong. Even though it was after midday there was a lot of ‘hoar’ frost, and several smaller ponds are beginning to freeze.
