A truly inspirational photograph which depicts this rather impressive Cruise Ship so very well, and as for the backdrop, well that is a completely different ball game.

That water looks shallow enough to paddle in yet that ship must go well below the waterline, there must be a severe drop in the water depth once you paddle out a few metres. The picture doesn't even look plausible as the ship looks grounded - It's almost an optical illusion!

Cheers Andrew for your comments, the drop off started about 20ft from where i was stood, there was a small river to my right that joint the fjord which had this small rocky shore line which you could walk down on to. Looking at the shot you would think a 70 thous ton ship could moor up in such a small town as Eidfjord just goes to show how deep these fjord are, and from 2013 this ship and the likes QM will not be able to get this port due a new bridge being builded about 10 miles away they won't be able to sail under it

Thanks very much for your explanation. The Port of Eidfjord is certainly going to suffer when that bridge is built; what a shame they didn't design it better to accommodate larger ships. I'd love to visit Norway properly, I've only done a very modest cruise from Newcastle to Bergen, but gave me a taste of a little Norwegian hospitality!
