“A certain time of year the sun will set at the perfect angle and illuminate the Kjerag mountain wall and the raging waterfall in luminescent orange and red, resembling a wall of molten lava. As the light catches the water it creates a glowing, fiery phenomenon.
I used various visual elements-elements of design; line, shape, color, texture, pattern, form and space to create an optical illusion of the Greek god Zeus lightning bolt.
In ancient Greek religion, Zeus was the chief deity of the pantheon, a sky and weather god who was identical with the Roman god Jupiter. He was regarded as the sender of thunder and lightning, rain, and winds, and his traditional weapon was the thunderbolt. He was often referred to as the “Father of Gods and men”.
Kjerag is a mountain in Forsand municipality in Rogaland county, Norway. The 1,110-metre (3,640 ft) tall mountain sits on the southern shore of the Lysefjorden, just southwest of the village of Lysebotn. Its northern side is a massive cliff, plunging 984 metres (3,228 ft) almost straight down into the Lysefjorden. A famous location for BASE jumping.
The Kjeragfossen waterfall plunges off the mountain down to the fjord. The 715-metre (2,346 ft) long waterfall cascades down from the Kjerag plateau on the south shore of the Lysefjorden. It is one of the highest waterfalls in the world.
The Kjaeragbolten is a massive boulder wedged in the crevice of this Norwegian mountain. It has become a popular tourist attraction for its beauty and wonder.
