The small plane is suspended motionless in atmosphere so vast.
I hold my breath just long enough to hear the roar of wind between propeller pulses.
I dangle just long enough to notice how tiny I am as is the machine that carries me.
Great mountains, glaciers and sky possess the forces to render me lifeless at whim.
Yet, they are giants that stand glorious in face of extinction.

Scene along the Flam railway line

A steep climb to and through Finse. Flamsbana is a beautiful train trip revealing a panoramic view of the majestic Norwegian fjord landscape.  

Journey by train feels to be the only means by which the whole world comes to you. Each moment's image is flashed and framed within the passenger car window. Each image is retained through pitch-black pauses through tunnels and the lull of the clickety clack and sway.
