Many thanks to all commenters & voters. Congrats to Ken for being the only one who connected the title to LZ. Norway truly has some stunning landscapes I wish I were better at capturing it.

In LR Reduced highlights, increased shadows & added clarity. Selectively added exposure to 2 paths. Used Luminar plug-in to bring out detail in grass & metal then back in LR using adjustment brush to lower clarity and sharpness on clouds. In PS cloned out some distracting rivets & growth on the metal path in the foreground. Slight crop then resize & export.

Original RAW image exported from LR with no processing:

PS: Forgot to thank Irene for helping me make the right choice.

What a beautiful shot Micheal. Many congratulations. It's such fun following your and Deb's amazing travels.

PS. From this angle it feels as if taking the road on the left would lead to a "walking the plank" situation!

But in the long run, there's still time to change the road you're on. ...seriously, the other one looks more fun. ;-) :P Awesome photo! 9, no 10 for the Led Zep reference.
