Is that a real picture or a fake?

I suppose it could be a real picture that is fake.

I suspect fake. If it was real, then where the photographer is standing, if the bus hadn't gone over the edge, then it would have run over the photog about 5 seconds after the pic was taken.

According to Ireepedia...this is true. Finland it would seem. Lovely Fjords.

Clearly fake. You can see reflections of a building in the bus windows if you had any doubts.
As for the photographer being in any danger if it was real, I doubt anything is doing more than 5-10 mph at best on that road. Plenty of time to get out of harms way.
Would be pic of a lifetime if it was real.

If it is real, why are the people on top jumping off the wrong side?
