A fjord is a long, narrow inlet with steep sides or cliffs, found at high latitudes and typically created by erosion from glaciers. The Limfjord – regarded as a fjord ever since the Vikings – is a bit different. It’s a shallow part of the sea. Ruslan Merzlyakov contributed this photo to EarthSky Facebook. It’s stars reflecting in the Limfjord. He captured it at Nykøbing Mors, the largest town on the island of Mors. Details of the shot:
