Amazing shot.  At first glance , it appears to be looking both down and up simultaneously!

Actually the lens is pointing slightly upwards.

There is a well-known vantage (and dare I say, touristic) point further up the mountain, but at an altitude of approx. 600  m.a.s.l. it's difficult to avoid getting the fjord into the frame. Thus I opted for shooting from a point nearer to sea level instead.

Thanks to Google Streetview, I found the *exact* location for my capture. You can easily see the two ridges sloping down almost 45 degrees, and the snow-capped mountain on  the other side of the fjord that formed the background.

My capture would not carry any impact lest it was taken in the early hours of the day as the morning sun just barely grazed these slopes.
