As a result of the landslide, which occurred in 1908, in Western Norway flooded the entire valley with farmland. Today this place is known as Lyugnstёylsvatnet Lake (Lygnstøylsvatnet), popular for diving. People from all over the world come to explore the Norwegian Atlantis.
And recently I visited this lake and photographer Lars Korvald ( by Lars Korvald ). He took photos and videos to an underwater camera, capturing the magical world of this place.
“Imagine that floats on the crystal clear water in front of you and there is an enchanted forest, remains of settlements, the road on which the goods were transported over a hundred years ago, stone fences, behind which contained a flock of sheep,” – says Korvald.
And in this photo can be seen several giant rocks rolled into the valley during a landslide:
“When immersed in water, you can see what remains of the nine farm buildings, bridges, roads, stone fences, gates, and most importantly – breathtaking underwater forest of leafless apple trees, frozen in time for over a hundred years,” – describes the underwater Korvald world.
The foundation of the old farm.
All that remains of the old house.
