This is a view of the waterfront of the village Lærdal or Lærdalsøyri as the administrative centre of the village is called. Behind the houses along the waterfront we can se one of the characteristic houses with grass roofs. The village Lærdal is located in the county of Sogn & Fjordane, around 2,5-3 hours drive from Bergen.

The dark water of the fjord must be very calm seen the excellent reflections of the boat houses.
It's remarkable how little space there is for the village squeezed between the mountain ridge and the fjord.
Best regards, Paul

something we can I think call "iconic" Norwegian scene.Beautiful,wooden and colorful architecture,magnificent nature around and so peaceful atmosphere of the place.You captured all these features perfectly,so the end result we see is really superb!For me it´s the combination of well-saturated colors,quite dim light(which help to create nice mood) and perfect clarity and depth,that make your image so outstanding.
Wish You a pleasant weekend

questi riflessi sono straordinari, sembra che ci sia anche poca luce.
Bello l'effetto dell'acqua leggermente mossa.

You've clearly found a way to present more than one photo per day allowed by Trekearth. This is a gorgeous pair of photos of Lærdal for the price of one. Those dark red colors characteristic of Norway are also found in some New England towns, and of course in Minnesota, where numerous ethnic Norwegians live. They appear to have brought their memories with them. I love the composition here.

Une bonne photo de ce joli village et de ses reflets dans ces eaux paisibles.

The old and newer houses go well together and form a very nice little group which casts beautiful reflections in the water. The older buildings are quite beautiful with interesting details. The composition is well balanced according to the "rules" of thirds.

I have to say that this is one of your best shots Erling, very nice indeed!
The 3 grey buidlings steal the show, especially the large grey building with the triangular shapes on the rooftop.
and those reflections are second-to-none
what a blast it must be to photograph this place!
enjoy your Sunday

De röda husen och de gula garagedörrarna lyser upp bilden. De omålade husen ser verkligen genuint gamla ut och hela bilden förmedlar en känsla av lugn och ro. Jag har åkt förbi här någon gång när vi besökte Borgund och det är väl här den berömda tunneln går.

Even under dull light this is an image with wonderful colour contrasts Erling. The reds and white so typical of Norway are superb against the greens and the reflection really rich and deep in tone. What a wonderful composition, excellent detail and a pleasure to see. Warm regards Rosemary

Ah, you Norwegians and your red seaside houses... These reflection shots from the Fjords are always so clear and stunning, every time I see one I think about booking a flight. Here we also see a nice range of architecture; the gray buildings at center are particularly eye catching and full of character. Thanks!
