The Lofoten archipelago in the north of Norway is a spectacular mountainous chain of four islands and Tind is located in the southernmost part called Moskenes°ya. The islands are dotted with little colourful fishing cabins called rorbuer (singular - rorbu).
Fishing cod is the main activity of the Lofoten Islands since Viking times. The heads and bodies are dried separately on racks. The heads are exported to Portugal, Spain and Italy where the famous bacalao is rehydrated. The heads are sent to West Africa where fish head soup is a popular dish.

This is something different 50:50, neither a landscape nor a portrait, but a shot close to a shot of photojournalism.
there is perspective in the shot, the colours are well balanced and the contrast pleasing.
The water, the boat, the colourful structures and the sky......one by one......all add to the beauty of this composition.
I am sure Madhav ji, you had also captured the fish from close and a close look of their mouth and eyes will be an altogether different view, as seen from your lens.
Eager to view the close shaves.
