It is a curious situation that the sea, from which life first arose, should now be threatened by the activities of one form of that life. ~Rachel Carson

From the map Amelia it looks like all around the bay there is industry...

A sad fact of life... ;(

See ya from Sandy ;)

Surely you have a local environmental officer you could send a copy of these shots too?

I think it's a good idea what Nick said! Maybe it helps! Greetings, Anne

Very good photo Amelia. Greetings John.

Sandy, Nick, Anne and John, soon all this area will be hard standing for base pipes probably, and all fenced off. I will no longer be able to get views like this.

It's all very sad really. It must be even worse for the older locals, who remember when this was an undeveloped rocky coastline where they used to play :(

Dear Nick, this hasn't occurred without planning permission of course, but there is quite a degree of carelessness, the way the plans are being carried out!

Thank you for looking at the uglier side to Norway, I wondered if anyone would even bother to open this - even the reviewers!

Greetings to you all, Amelia

No, I'm not a reviewer, Amelia. It's o.k. to post such environmental crimes. I said it already at another place: I saw the norway carelessness in some holidays and I'm not surprised to see this. You choosed quite a matching title to this photo!

Save our world - wan't this a topic in panoramio the last year?

Greetings, Klaus
