Entitled – Suldal. The Suldal Gate, Suldal Lake.
From a Photo by Axel Lindahl.

Below the picture an inscription reads:

Suldal. – This is the narrowest part of the lake, where the rocks on either side rise as straight as a wall to a height of 800ft. The total length of the lake is eighteen miles, and the steamer passes many farmhouses. Starting from Stavanger, an important town with a cathedral and 25,000 inhabitants, one journeys for a few hours on the Ryfylke-Fjord in one of the well-appointed little steamers that ply upon these inland waters. After passing the village of Sand, the traveller plunges immediately into the Suldal, a wide, green valley flanked by lofty hills and traversed by a foaming and translucent stream. On the road to Osen one sees here and there an old saw-mill whose wheels are worked by the fosses and torrents. Taking to the steamer again at Osen, the tourist journeys towards Naes, the first striking scene being the stupendous Portal depicted in our photograph. Towering rocks close in here, narrowing the lake to the dimensions of a mere cleft apparently, though, of course, much wider than it seems at a distance. All along the passage the groupings of the mountains on either side are very fine; but the most extraordinary scene is witnessed when the steamer is close to Naes. There, as is seen above, rises out of the lake an almost perfectly pyramidal rock, backed by lofty mountains, and this seems to completely block the way. The vessel, however, directs its course to the left, where a sudden opening in the monstrous rocks leaves open the passage to Naes, and the famous gorge of Bratlandsdal, where the road is excavated out of the solid rock, which occasionally hangs over the head of the traveller as though about to fall and crush him in his carriole.

If you buy an item and then see it relisted this is because we occasionally have more than one available.
