Undredal is a small village in the municipality of Aurland in Sogn og Fjordane county, Norway. It is located along the Aurlandsfjord, about 5 kilometres (3.1 mi) south of the Nærøyfjord. The popular tourist destination of Undredal is located along the Aurlandsfjord which is a branch off the massive Sognefjord in Norway's "fjord-country." It is most beautiful and also home to the smallest Stave church in Northern Europe.
With a population of approximately 100 people and 500 goats, Undredal is famous for the brown goat cheese (geitost) that is still produced the traditional way. The production of cheese is important to the local economy as eight farms produce 10 to 12 short tons (9,100 to 11,000 kg) of cheese each year. Goat sausage is also produced locally.
Prior to 1988, Undredal was only accessible by boat, but since then a road connection has been made by constructing two lengthy tunnels as part of the E16 highway. The Gudvanga Tunnel leads southwest to Gudvangen and the Flenja Tunnel goes to Flåm and Aurlandsvangen to the northeast. There is a brief 700-metre (2,300 ft) long length of road between the tunnels that has an access road to Undredal 6.5 kilometres (4.0 mi) to the north

The different sized sheds with their different coloured façades make an interesting graphical ensemble. The boat adds another ingredient to the pot. Good diagonal perspective; very good colours and sharpness.

J'aime beaucoup la diagonale que forme l'enlignement des cabanes dans l'image. Les couleurs sont belles et les détails très nets.

Good capture of these sheds in a diagonal line. The colors are vivid and the sharpness is very good. The boat adds to the composition.

Fine outlines and vivid colors on this simple, yet a nice picture.
The banks of the fjord is backed by the giant, towering ridge - and it doe's show in here.

mi piace il senso minimalista dell'immagine che punta sulla semplicità e sul gioco dei colori,
ottima la resa,

Lovely colors well framed ... Nikon and canon ;-)
Good sharpness, maybe the fg is a bit empty ...

This is another of your speciality, good use of bright vivid color tones and great contrasts to draw the eyes in by using ordinary subjects through your good observation. Creative shot, well done
