Backdoor into Akershus

In Oslo in late August, we were exploring Akershus Fortress, built in the late 13th century. This particular portal leads into the fortress from Oslo's waterfront and would be considered a back entrance. We admired the stonework and thought this represented a unique view of the portal.
