Taken from the ferry going between Mannheller and Fodnes in Norway. We can see Fodnes on the picture.
Fodnes is a farm located by Sognefjorden, the second largest fjord in the world. There were many of these roadless places along the fjord in earlier times. Now, most of them has no people anymore and they just stand as a forgotten place. At least some places are still left. Most of them has now got a road, but not all.
The mountains rises to over 1000 masl. (3000 feet), while the fjord can go about the same length on the other side of the surface. The water has a blue-green color because it's cold. Some of the water come from the glaciers above.

That's Norway as I remember it with the mountain falling into the sea, also the brightly painted houses tell about the place
Have a nice day JY

a beautiful lanscape from your beautiful country. I like the colours very much! Those houses by the fjord are so nice. Those who live there must be very lucky!
Congratulations for your fine composition!

comme la photo précédente, une belle impression de relief avec ces deux plans superposés dont j'aime beaucoup les teintes de l'avant plan. Un cadrage très efficace et bien pensé;

So typical Norway with this photo of the Sognefjord. Makes you feel really small looking up against the mountains when you are in a boat.
The photo is nicely composed with the two mountains visible and the houses almost at the bottom of the photo. I might have tried to take the photo a bit more to the right so you can look further around the first mountain into the fjord.

this is really nice shot. Mountains seem very huge compare to the houses at the bottom. Great colors and composition. Well taken.

I had to return to this picture - without the houses it would have a strong sense of space, but with the nicely contrasting and tiny houses, really accentuates the immensity and scale of the landscape.

I think this is a nice composition!
Love the light on the green gras and the buildings.

Splendid clear vibrant colors seen along this fjord's magnificent mountainside.
Love how the lush green of the trees give way to a blue tinge in the distance.
