This must have been a great ride! Sometimes it´s important to just stop and enjoy the scenery.
The picture is from Lofoten, an island group in the county of Nordland, Norway. It is well known for its natural beauty.
Did you know that the Moskestraumen forms here? One of the strongest maelstrom or tidal whirlpool in the world.
Edgar Allen Poe, Jules Verne (Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea) and Herman Melville (Mobydick or the Whale) all include descriptions of this unusual phenomenon.
Moskstraumen is unusual in that it occurs in the open sea whereas most other whirlpools are observed in confined straits or rivers.
