Norway and Sweden - July 14th, 2011

This image stretches across Norway (left), on the coast of the North Sea and the Norwegian Sea, to Sweden (right) and the shores of the Gulf of Bothnia. The two countries are separated by the Scandinavian mountain chain (Skanderna).

The coast of Norway is rugged, broken by huge fjords and thousands of islands. The fjords, best observed in the full image, appear as dark blue line reaching inland from the coast.
