ugg australia classic tall ft rock ledge overhanging the Norwegian fjords
Inching her way across the overhanging rock ledge, this hiker is getting perilously close to the edge of the world.
The German hiker is dwarfed by the sheer scale and beauty of the landscape beneath her feet as she takes in the breathtaking view of the Norwegian Fjords.
This incredible image was captured by British photographer Jay Patel, 42, from Wallington in Surrey, after a five hour hike in Skjeggedal, in the southern Norwegian Fjords.

He said: ‘I haven’t been to anywhere
more spectacular than that. In the photograph I wanted to capture the
sense and feeling of being there.
‘It’s the most amazing photo I’ve taken and is quite unworldly.
‘Hiking up there, the trails are quite discreet, so you don’t see it coming and then you round a corner and it suddenly appears.
‘I went and sat on the edge and dangled my feet over but it was quite windy so I was leaning back the whole time.
‘I was lucky to get the right conditions. The light gives it that bit of depth and scale to the scene.’
Trolltunga stands horizontally out of
the mountain above Skjeggedal in the Odda region of Norway and is only
accessible via a network of hiking trails.
