Last December the website WhereCoolThingsHappen published a picture story titled «27 Reasons Why You Must Visit Norway in 2015”.
“Wondering why you should visit Norway?” the editors asked. Norway is a once in a lifetime destination and probably one of the most stunning landscapes in the world, truly spectacular nature with mountains plunging into the sea from hundreds of meters, fjords, tall mountain peaks, northern lights and midnight sun. So we’re putting Norway on our travel-list for 2015,” the publisher wrote. Today we want to share with you some images showing picturesque Norway.

We have been accused by Photographer Daniil Korzhonov’s lawyer of violating the copyright laws of his photos. We have rejected the claim since we obtained permission to use the images after best press practice. Of course, we are honored that the requirement is for a five-digit dollar amount, assessing the quality of our publication. However, we have chosen to replace all images of Daniil Korzhonov since we do not want to promote a photographer who under such circumstances is taking legal action against us.
All images have been replaced by in-house photos if not otherwise stated.
