Trekking & Road Trip in Norway - Day 2 (Getting to the West Cost)

Driving slowly towards west passing a few more lakes, stopping by a few of the more appealing ones to snap some pictures, to break the monotone slow driving. And also a stop by a remote cemetery with a closed chapel in the middle of the mountains with an impressive water fall further away. All of the pictures takes just by the road to avoid wasting time on hiking and getting to the destination as fast as possible. I had made 4-5 stops each costing about 30 minutes of time.

At last at about 5:30 pm arriving in Alesund, a sea port on the west coast of Norway, noted for its unique concentration of Art Nouveau architecture. Built partly on islands and a long peninsula which from above looks like a big tongue protruding from the mainland's mouth. I looked around a little and found a suitable hotel, hurried to check into the hotel to be able to get to a high view to see and shoot the town from above. To be in a hurry, being first time in town, trying to get hotel finding and check in out of the way before it's too dark meant a lot of stress, not mentioning the being worried for getting parking tickets.
Anyway, I was at the viewpoint at about 7.30 pm and made some shots before it got dark and I headed back to the hotel.

Took two days but at last I was at the west cost and could start the real adventure from the day after. It was a bonus that I could make it to the viewpoint so it was gotten done otherwise I had to do it the first thing in the morning.
