After I got my Aquatica house from Jean & Co, I got in my car and went up to this village under water for testing my rig.
I have never been here before but this place has a special story.
In 1908 there was a land slide from a mountain that blocked the valley so the water rised and drown the little 'Setern' (don't know what this is in english). You can see the road going in to the water in the south side of the lake. You can follow it under the water to you get to the Setern, there is 9 small houses but there is only some stone walls left. The forrest by the old river is still standing after 100 years. It is if you going back in time almost nothing is changed.

Fascinating!

Did you use a strobe or a filter? It's worth trying both in clear, green water.

I used 2 Inon Z-240 stobes with no filter.

Amazing! Viz seems really good and looks like the dives are not very deep either?!
I bet it's a real treat to dive there :)
Thanks for sharing!

If you drive from Hellesylt, take off on the 655 road and it is the first lake on the right side.
