Summer in Fjærland. Here we see the grass is dried by old methods.
In Fjærland we find the Norwegian Glacier Museum and the Norwegian Book Town.
The aim of the Norwegian Glacier Museum is two collect, create and disseminate knowledge about glaciers and climate. The exhibitions cover topics within both natural and cultural history. The inter-play within the natural environment and between mankind and nature, is highlighted through films, interactive models and individual experiments with real glacier ice. The Norwegian Glacier Museum - a museum of curious people.
The Norwegian Book Town, Fjærland, is an experience out of the ordinary. Find books you did not remember you missed in book shops you would never imagine, situated in a bewitchingly beautiful spot between the fjord and glacier in Western Norway.

This is a nicely composed shot of this beautiful Norwegian scene. The row of hay creates a nice diagonal leading the eye into the shot. The lighting and colors are great and the photo has nice shaprness.

Indeed a beautiful landscape! The long diagonal line of the hayrack is well placed along the fjord here and colours are all very good!

the drying grass is a remarkable element in this composition: it devieds the green grass on the left to the more blue part on the right.

It is ages since I last saw "hesje", didn't know they still do this!
Well it looks so much better than haybales wrapped in white plastic hehehe...
Composition wise I like the strong diagonal and the vivid colours!
