Photographer's Note

Norway is a land of fjords, islands and mountains. Although it is possible to reach some of islands via roads and tunnels, the best way to see the islands, both off the coast and in the fjords, is by boat. Many people therefore own boats, and many harbours have these surface mooring buoys. All mooring buoy systems consist of three elements: a permanent fixture on the sea bottom; a floating buoy on the water surface; and something in between to attach the two. Using such a system prevents damage to the seabed by anchors.
