This is the gravel road winding through Endalen in Forollhogna National Park. This is a privately owned road, and you have to pay toll for the usage depending on type of vehicle.
The road is usually well maintained but as you see it is narrow and curvy! Fun to drive actually, but you have to be careful since the width is about 1.5 cars...
Personally I love the days when weather says it is scooter time! You never get as close to nature as on a scooter, or on a bicycle for that matter. The warm breeze in your hair, the scent from nature and the sound of silence...
Along the road you pass several summer farms, like the one we see here. Special for Forollhogna NP is that quite a few of the summer farms are in operation, you can buy their excellent quality dairy produce on the premises and you can say hello to the cow that provided the milk!

Lovely National Park you captured.
Wonderful composition in your technique.
Very beautiful landscape composition.
snunney (79551) 2011-04-17 2:28
The winding road is well placed in the composition and draws the viewer into the scene as well as creating a good sense of depth. I like very much the natural verdant tones, which contrast prettily with the lovely clear sky. Light, colours and sharpness all feature well here. A most agreeable landscape image.
jhm (135120) 2011-04-17 2:43
You create a wonderful depth picture also a very well perspective through the road that makes swaying motion and leads us to depth in background.
Lovely rural image.
Very well done, TFS.
Have a nice sunday,

Hello Pablo ,
The sinuous road leads our eyes trough this beautiful rural landscape . A simple , but well composed picture .
pierrefonds (54912) 2011-04-17 5:16
The curves of the road is sending my eyes toward the mountains which is giving depth to the composition. The point of view is showing the details and colors of the famr and of the mountains. The morning light is bringing out the colors. Have a nice day.
Sergiom (54445) 2011-04-17 5:42
Le regard suit naturellement la petite route dans l'image ce qui donne une belle profondeur. Le paysage est magnifique et la lumière très belle.
npecanhuk (60854) 2011-04-17 7:52
Lovely and pleasant-looking landscape!
Beautiful picture with the inclusion of the road, the fence and the houses!
TFS - congrats,
asajernigan (20364) 2011-04-17 8:17
This is a great landscape shot. The winding road leads the eye through the shot perfectly. The inclusion of the trees on the right was a good choice adding framing and depth for the scene. The lighting and colors are great and the photo has excellent sharpness and DOF.
wolf38 (30276) 2011-04-17 9:58
Hi Pablo. Your beautiful landscapes are similar in many ways. It's always a pleasure to look at these wonderful pictures. Excellent. Rgds, Wolfgang.
Cricri (101257) 2011-04-17 10:17
Belle courbe de la route qui s'enfonce dans ce très joli paysage aux teintes variées, la lumière est belle tout comme cette composition
cornejo (27979) 2011-04-17 11:57
Pablo cordials greetings. A landscape very beautiful of this place so beautiful. A photo very good, technically perfect. A excellent work, congratulation. Have a happy week, thanks for sharing, one hug.
ciakgiak (30405) 2011-04-17 12:06
un paesaggio estremamente semplice ed efficace al tempo stesso.
C'è tanta naturalezza, colori molto belli e ben resi, una qualità eccellente ed in più quella strada che corre in primo piano, si interrompe, per continuare in lontananza.
Un carissimo abbraccio, buona settimana.
vasilpro (40755) 2011-04-17 13:11
Wonderful composition, excellent POV, beautiful landscape, lovely light and colors, very good clarity and sharpness.
Have a nice week, Vasilis.
gunbud (34066) 2011-04-17 14:19
The old gravel road cuts quite a figure as it snakes through the heavily wooded countryside.
The trees and sky contrast brilliantly and the small farm buildings really catch the eye.
Looks like a great place to visit via two wheels.
nikkitta (13220) 2011-04-17 18:27
I read your note and agreed totally with you, like the contact with nature
Nice road but what I like the more are the small cottages or farm, must be good to spend some time there
TopGeo (38168) 2011-04-17 22:30
Hello Pablo! A gravel road winding through Endalen in Forollhogna National Park, in nature, even small pleasures gives you describe! Wonderful colors and a goddess of pleasure in an area that combines forest and farmland fencing! Good idea for your presentation here!
AiresSantos (56155) 2011-04-17 23:43
Excellent perspective of the Endalen Road in the moutains

Giorgio (11279) 2011-04-19 7:46
- Beautiful landscape Pablo, rural and verdant atmosphere, hills, curves and perspective are undeniable bonus, excellent technical management, foreground, middleground and background, many relief in this picture, well done!
paninho (2931) 2011-04-19 8:17
Très bien cadrée ta photo avec cette route qui nous amène profondément dans la photo! Belle et bucolique scène de campagne, avec une bonne luminosité! Joli et bien fait!
UlfE (14639) 2011-04-19 11:06
I realise that this is an autumn scene, but the strong lighting make it look more like spring. The photo is very well-composed with the long and winding road. The back-light also makes it very attractive. It looks like it was taken on a warm day. TFS and have a nice evening!
mauro61 (52623) 2011-04-19 14:02
la curva della strada attraversa i campi illuminati dal forte sole.
Mi piace l'ambientazione dello scatto e l'inquadratura,

JCG (35129) 2011-04-19 22:09
If I understand your note, it is better to walk this curvy road !!! Anyway, it is greener... A nice view over the landscape where this road gives a good depth to the image, I like the balance of your frame. Light is also very nice. Thank you for this beautiful ballad Pablo.
With all my friendships and a very good day

une vue un peu trop classique, beauté de la nature où finalement peu de choses attirent le regard qui se perd dans l'admiration de la flore.
My best regards.

Ce S de la route donne beaucoup de dynamique à cette image si belle de Norvège.Le regard nous donne envie de loger cette route.
papagolf21 (83214) 2011-04-21 14:30
Bonsoir, mon ami Pablo,
Comme il est agréable de suivre cette petite route et se laisser emporter par le charme environnant.
C'est une pure bouffée de bonheur à travers cette composition très réussie.
fabianoleite (9371) 2011-04-21 17:26
Well arranged photo, I like how the road makes us go along different parts of the picture, with great inclusion of houses and mountains on the background!
s_lush (16134) 2011-04-22 22:03
The curved lines of the road in the foreground and especially its continuation in the background make the picture looking quite interesting and three-dimensional. In addition, under the bright sunlight, the natural and architectural features of the scene look simply beautiful. Excellent composition and perfect quality of the capture!
Angshu (54711) 2011-04-23 0:54
Good lead-in created by the gravel road. Interesting to see the curved road winding its way & we can see a slice of it left of centre in the far BG. Good light and nice colours!
agulberk (3794) 2011-04-23 2:10
Hi Dear Pablo
Very well composition with very exciting.
natural way to fold into the fold of the wonderful green forest and very nice presentation with very good perspective,naturel colors,sharpness,and light management.
Have a good spring.
Juntas (7958) 2011-04-27 3:34
Hi Pablo. This is a very nice composition. The winding road gives a nice sense of motion and depth. I like fences and this one looks very nice in here. Green and blue make a nice contrast, sharpness is great. A fine work, well done.
Have a nice day.

Hi dear Pablo,
what a wonderful road under the autumn sun.warm light and details are superb.great depth and framing.very lovely landscape with lovely little houses in the nature..thanks this wonderful presentation.
clic (14136) 2011-05-11 16:40
So, that the long winding road in mountains you drove through, seeking for ancestral treasures!
You found a lot indeed and the valley itself, from that angle, is quite attractive !
paura (47166) 2011-07-03 16:52
A paisagm é uma beleza e mostra que após a neve sempre vem um maravilhoso verde. Linda tomada.
plimrn (21344) 2011-07-11 8:04
I love the way the road curves through the wonderful scenery. I can just see you cruising down the road on your scooter with your monkish hairdo. The other day I saw a fellow cruising down the road on his scooter with his water buffalo in tow in the trailer behind. Sadly, I was in a bus with no time for a shot. Do you suppose that you could get your squirrel buddies to cruise down the road with you on your scooter?
