Grass-roofed homes in Geirangerfjord, Norway. Given the importance of sustainable practices today and the contemporary interest in roof garden projects (for schools, residences and municipal projects) where grasses, herbs and cultivated flowers can be grown, it is fascinating to note this Scandinavian practice. When the grass grows too dense, goats are sent onto the roof to crop the abundance of growth. Images are copyright Lorella Brocklesby
Trolltunga is another spectacular example of the geological oddities that dot the Norwegian landscape. The fittingly named 'Troll's Tongue' sticks out of a vertical mountain side above a 350m drop. It offers a magnificent view of Skjeggedal near town of Odda.
