Flooded Forest runs in Poland


 

The Polish dive magazine, Nurkowanie, are running my Flooded Forest story in their August issue. The images are from lake Lygnstølsvatnet in Norway.


I have visited Lygnstølsvatnet on several occasions over the last 7-8 years, and the dive is always a very special experience.

The images in the article are mainly from 2007, although some are both older and more recent.

Lake Lygnstøylsvatnet came into existence in 1908 after a big rock-slide closed off the river Lygna and flooded the valley. Below the water are remains of several farmhouses, stone fences, gates, a bridge and a forest.

There is also a mention of the article, which is run over three pages, at the Nurkowanie homepage.

For those of you wanting to visit this unique divesite, here's a link to Google Maps. Lygnstølsvatnet is located on the Norwegian west coast, not far from the small city of Ørsta. The area is well known for its fantastic natural beauty, with the Geiranger fjord close by.
