Norwegian Landscapes – Geology & Fjord in Vollen

On the west side, outside the Oslo city limits, are a number of lovely places on the water where one can view both the fjord and some extreme geology. The rocks jutting out in Vollen are tilted to an almost 90 degree angle in some cases and rock faces contain a colorful array of minerals. These are images from a walk along the coast of the Oslo fjord in Vollen, Norway.
