    Kannesteinen Rock is shaped over thousands of years by the crashing waves in this magnificent form like a mushroom. The rock is located in the rural village of Oppedal, on the island of Vågsøy, approximately 10 km west of the center of Måløy city, Norway.

    In and out the water goes carving and shaping the rocks with each new pass. Islands are changing landscapes—each year brings new scenes. What will this whale’s tail rock look like next? When will it disappear all together? A gorgeous long exposure shot at the perfect time of day.
