It has been a while since I posted a picture from this island west of Bergen. The weather that day wasn`t the best, rather a normal day late in october. In the afternoon, after some rain showers the sun showed up again and the landscape and the buildings appeared in a fabulos light that really brought out the colours. I couldn`t resist bringing my tripod and try to capture some pictures. So late october is not all about bad weather, it can also be like this, here in the north.
Thanks for viewing.

Kia ora Erling,
Great photo. As you say the light was fabulous and certainly brings out great detail even in the reflections. Looks a lovely part of Norway. Cheers, Neil

Hello Erling - The richness of the colour here is magnificent and the light perfect to give that moody feel. The sky is quite heavy and makes a great BG to the brilliant sunlit whites and reds. Of course the reflections add enormously to the composition. A fabulous shot and an absolute pleasure to see.
Warm regards Rosemary

Une très belle image bien contrastée avec de très agréables couleurs.
J'aime beaucoup le reflet des maisons dans l'eau et le ciel sombre.

Det var ett ganska fantastiskt ljus den dagen och det stilla vattnet gav vackra reflexer. De röda och vita husen, med kyrkan högst upp, skapar en fin atmosfär. En mycket stilig bild.

saxo042 (37666) 2012-12-06 11:49
Ett mycket varmt och vackert ljus över denna stillsamma vy. Otroligt lugnt vatten och väldigt fina speglingar av all byggnader. Mycket attraktivt med alla dessa röda och vita hus mot den mörkblå himlen. Mycket norska färger!
korbee (6617) 2012-12-06 12:23
absolutety brilliant light Erling,the colors of the building are playing extra part in this beauty,super clouds and reflection,it couldnt be better than this..

Fantastique photo avec une fabuleuse lumière nordique. Le cadrage est parfait et l'exposition de l'image idéale. Superbe!
krzychu30 (15510) 2012-12-06 13:22
I think just the opposite,the weather couldn´t be better.These dramatic,grey clouds create unique mood of the scene.On the one hand fascinating and nice,but on the other hand kind of "gloomy".Amazing how you were able to capture the colors so well.They´re so well-saturated and strong.Norway from its most beautiful side-with beautiful,wooden architecture and breathtaking landscape.Excellent work!
Wish You all the best
siudzi (34141) 2012-12-06 13:32
Outstanding picture! Really excellent work taken with a perfect quality. Like the strong color contrast, sharpness and great clarity. Bravo!
parvatibb (1387) 2012-12-06 13:38
It is a lovely photo! I could hang it on my wall and just dream about being there and even take a short trip with that boat.
Great reflections and wonderful contrast between dark sky and white and orange colored houses.
npecanhuk (69998) 2012-12-06 15:52

What a charming photo! nice simple houses in white and red, also simple church, but it is special light that makes it so remarkable. Superb photo.

J'aime beaucoup la construction de cette image. L'utilisation du plan d'eau comme miroir est parfaite. J'aime les couleurs des maisons qui semblent briller sur un fond de ciel gris.
macjake (61434) 2012-12-07 18:27
every time i see a scene like this one posted in the gallery, I know there's about a 95% chance its taken by you!
as for the weather, I think it actually helped you out alot on this one, the grey and darker lighting gives you lots of atmosphere.
but of course the reflections are the focal point for me! awesome charm.
JFS (32459) 2012-12-08 0:13
Your photo is so appealing Erling! These colors, this light, the composition, the reflection...A very good work!
chawax (19824) 2012-12-08 5:27
Very beautiful reflections and very nice light ! It looks like rhe colours of villages in Scandinavia often make them good subjects for photography !
Have a nice week end,
emilbo (22616) 2012-12-08 6:11
Merveilleux photo et quel bel éclairage malgré un ciel nuageux. Ce village, en rouge et blanc, au bord de l'eau avec son église est magnifique. Excellente composition en trois plans et belle harmonie de couleurs. Le plan d'eau en avant-plan est superbe avec de splendides reflets.
Toutes mes amitiés et bonne fin de semaine,
mauro61 (52633) 2012-12-09 2:03
sempre spettacolari le tue immagini con queste case colorate che si riflettono sull'acqua.
La luce solare conferisce una bella atmosfera alla foto,
un caro saluto
ACL1978 (7511) 2012-12-09 8:56
A classic Norwegian village here, Erling, and beautifully captured in the setting sun! The dark clouds in BG serve to brighten the buildings themselves nicely, and the reflection is gorgeous. Beautiful and tranquil scene!
karacabeylis (1465) 2012-12-09 11:40
i wonder if there could be a better management on contrast of colors. even i haven't made a word on that perfect reflection. a topnotch job!
fabbs99 (16817) 2012-12-11 20:46
Incredibly beautiful shot executed with a superb quality. The DOF, saturation and exposure were managed perfectly. Great work! TFS.

annjackman (20905) 2012-12-15 2:44
The late October light and sky has given a very special quality to this picture. The colours and reflections have excellent clarity. The church makes a good focal point with the houses clustered around it.
Kind Regards, Ann

mesutilgim (89076) 2012-12-16 14:53
A great "masterwork" with perfect pov and wonderfull reflections. Very well balanced compo and warm colors.
TFS and best regards
jemaflor (89385) 2012-12-22 7:56
So lovely with these colourful houses, good pov with this watermirror to have reflections on calm water, Great warm light very well captured, tfs.
Romano46 (18472) 2013-01-26 8:15
questa tua foto sembra una rappresentazione del paese delle fiabe.
Il soggetto ovviamente ha una buona parte del merito nel risultato, ma tu ci hai messo del tuo la gradevolezza della composizione, la tecnica fatta di contrasto elevato che ha accentuato i colori e (credo) anche l'uso di un polarizzatore che ha accentuato la bellezza dell'insieme. Una foto che aggiungerò alle mie preferite perchè merita.
Ciao e buon fine settimana
yquem46 (38750) 2013-01-27 3:35
This one is really outstanding and so Norwegian
A great black threatening sky letting some sun pass through to lighten the red houses of this typical village
The mirror reflections are as well a main interest in the compo
have nice sunday, best regards
krypton88 (74) 2013-01-28 3:18
Thank you for sharing this beautiful photo. I really like the color contrast between the blue of the sky/water and the vivid colors of the houses. This special light is tipical of the rainy days followed by the sun: that's surely one of the best moments you can choose to get around with your camera! Good job!
Keep posting photos about your beautiful coutry!
Have an excellent week, Luca
Kamilutka (8105) 2013-03-18 3:07
no wonder this photo has earned so many points - it is truly masterly delivered scene. The village has a lot of charm itself but placing it in this weather circumstances adds this extra factor which can make the photo really outstanding. I love the dark sky and the way it provides superb fond for warmly lit buildings. Amazing contrast between the warm and cold colors.
Very well done
fritzi007 (8685) 2013-05-29 15:27
wunderbare norwegische Landschaft, sehr gute Spiegelung, gratuliere!
petarl (1187) 2013-09-25 5:12
Although at the fist sight, edges seem little blurred and not sharp, one moment after that and few centimeters away from the display, this becomes splendid photo with rich colors from cold and snowy Norway. We used to learn that the Gulf stream coming from Mexico finishes close to town of Bergen in Norway and brings it nice weather, similar to our capital Belgrade which is much further on the south. This is the photo I would also like to have captured and be proud of.
kasianowak (7565) 2014-10-18 4:04
This is also very beautiful and again the reflection is wodnerful. Dramatic sky enhaces the image and creates a special mood.
Have a nice day
mayjayne (4541) 2015-04-25 3:57
The colours are wonderful here - rich and warm; very nicely composed, exuding an atmosphere that is calm and tranquil.
