Norway from the view of a kayakker
Pining for the fjords! Kayaker captures breathtaking Norwegian landscapes from the water... and gains 10,000 Instagram followers
Would you believe that these breathtaking photos were seen through the lens of a kayaker's GoPro camera?
Intrepid Tomasz Furmanek spends his spare time away from the Institute of Marine Research gliding atop the waters in some Norway's most idyllic beauty spots.
For 10 years, Tomasz, a software developer, has visited many of the fjords in western Norway, inland lakes and the areas around Lofoten Islands in the northern part of the country.
But for Tomasz the main reason he has spent so much time kayaking is because he finds it relaxing.
He said: 'I kayak mainly because it is an easy way to get mental balance.
'You get close to nature in a kayak and can experience things that is not possible while hiking.'
For the past two years, Tomasz has been documenting his trips and uploading what he calls an 'adventure blog' to his 10,000 followers on Instagram.
'I do not upload private pictures,' said Tomasz.
'The Instagram feed is more an adventure blog than a personal profile.
'The people that follow my account are mainly interested in kayaking, although I have some followers that do not do kayaking.
'I had about ten thousand followers this summer before I went to Lofoten with Kristoffer Vandbakk who I met on Instagram.
'After three weeks of kayaking in Lofoten area, I gained about ten thousand new followers.'
Tomasz mainly uses a helmet mounted GOPRO3+ camera for photos and videos and a Sony RX100mk2 in a waterproof box on the front deck of the kayak.
