Another view from Alnes lighthouse as a song from Pink Martini's "Splendor in the Grass".
Alnes is a small village on Godøya island in the municipality of Giske in Møre og Romsdal county, Norway. The islands of Giske have unspoiled scenery with beautiful fishing villages, white sandy beaches. Today new bridges and sub sea tunnels link the islands together. 6600 islanders can also reach the mainland and the town centre of Alesund through these tunnels. The predominant feature of the village is the Alnes lighthouse which was established in 1876 to guide fishing boats safely to the harbor of the small fishing community of Alnes. The lighthouse is still in operation with a few modifications. It also houses an art gallery and a small historical museum. The galley and the tower are open for tourists from May through October, and the old keeper's house has a café and an exhibition hall where artwork from local artists are displayed. There is also a small historical museum inside the lighthouse tower.)

J'aime beaucoup la construction de cette image. J'aime le point de vue près du sol qui donne de l'ampleur au phare qui se dresse fièrement dans ce ciel parfait.

What a bright and pleasant shot! So clean, so sharp! A very quiet place that i imagine now must be full of snow.

Looks like a happy relaxing place in this photo - such an amazing soft light and crisp saturated colors! The green grass looks so lush - like a luxurious natural carpet.
Thanks for sharing this wonderful atmosphere!
All the best,

This is a fine capture of this interesting lighthouse. The green lawn and the red on the lighthouse provides a nice contrast to the white and blue. Interesting to read your note, I`ve never been here. A lovely composition. Great job! TFS. Enjoy your Sunday.
Best regards, Erling

The lighthouses are my favorite objects to visit and photograph. Very interesting square structure because most of lighthouses are round. Well framed photo as well colors, light and sharpness.
