Today’s video shows the beauty of Western Norway, Kalvåg to be precise. The footage was captured by Pål Sundsøy with a DJI Phantom. This is what Pål had to say about the short film:

“Out by the open sea a small town Kalvåg is located on the Island Frøya. This is also the place where half my family is coming from (Sundsøy – Seen at 1:12 between the two bridges). Kalvåg and the exceptional nature surroundings is here captured from the air in 4K resolution.”
