This place is around 30 km from the nearest population, and located at the end of the road through Synnerdalen (South Valley) in Forollhogna NP.
What is strange here is the two-storey building, totally unusual and hardly ever seen in the mountains. So far I have no idea what kind of place this used to be, as I don’t think it ever was a farm this far from civilization. I guess I have to ask some of the locals next time…
If you look closely you will se a TV antenna there, indicating someone is using the house as a week-end place today. And the red house has slate on the roof, quite unusual that too!

A fine composition featuring this rather splendid looking house. Its red tones sit well against the wooded hillside behind. The image has good light, colours and sharpness.

J'aime beaucoup ce cadrage qui montre bien l'environnement rugeux qui entoure les fermes norvégiennes. J'aime la végétation sur la grange et le beau rouge des maisons.

The mountain is framing well the house and the farm buildings. the point of view is showing the details and colors of the architecture of the house and of the farm buildings. The afternoon light is enhancing the colors. Have a nice day.

Great composition with nice contrast between red, green blue. The house looks like its been there a while despite the unusual construction. Good POV

These wooden houses painted in red seem to be very common here in Norway, Pablo.
Since the left is fantastic. Well rustic ... old ... but still its charm and beauty, especially the roof.
Bluejeans (64251) 2011-06-19 13:30

The reddish double story house is really a sight attraction here, it is good contrast to the greenery environment, beautiful slope as background, nice landscape and geographical feature, should be a quite site and idea place to spend nice time in weekend, thanks for sharing.
fabianoleite (11703) 2011-06-19 20:10
The red house distinguihses itself nicely from the greenery around, creating great contrast. Very good composition, congratulations!
mesutilgim (95390) 2011-06-19 22:52
Good morning Pablo,
Nice work ! The red house creates an eyecatching effect.
The old barn at left creates a balance. Nice framing and interesting notes.
TFS and have a nice day
wolf38 (31296) 2011-06-19 22:57
Hello Pablo. A wonderful picture of the season. In this photo, the combination of landscape and house red is very good. Overall, a successful shot. Very nice. Rgds, Wolfgang.
saxo042 (37890) 2011-06-19 23:05
A very beautiful view with these very old houses. The red house (although not the same red as on all Swedish houses) looks very fine against the green vegetation behind.
Graal (102928) 2011-06-19 23:54
another rural landscape. Amazing red house and barn, fine contrast of colours. Photo well done and well composed.
Have a nice day.
danyy (0) 2011-06-20 0:00
bien cadrée cette scène semi-sauvage, belle palette de verts et un ciel d'un bleu tendre, le rouge de cette demeure de bois, ressort bien, un endroit séduisant.
josepmarin (58359) 2011-06-20 0:08
The red house is a real eye-catcher in this image, its wooden structure is fascinating, though according to your note its two floors and its slate roof are unusual in this zone.
I like the light and the power of the colors in the photo, as well as the nice chromatic contrast between all the elements of your composition.
A beautiful work, my friend.
rodgerg (55767) 2011-06-20 10:18
A lonely house but well loacted at the foot of the hill. Nice shot too with beautiful natural colors well collected. the nice red color arise very well and give a beautiful contrast withe green. Superb blue sky too.
gildasjan (43648) 2011-06-20 11:12
Excellent cadrage de cette maison rouge dans ce magnifique paysage Norvégien.
dip (23888) 2011-06-20 13:19
it seems indeed a beautiful place for relaxing at weekend!
the red house is a eye catcher and creates nice contrast with the green hill behind,
good point of view and light managment as well,
clic (17129) 2011-06-20 15:10
Impossible to miss this lovely red eye catcher for recluse embedded in the valley.
Appears magnificent against the green backdrop at junction of interest lines.
I presume they had poor tv reception, so located in a valley!
npecanhuk (75502) 2011-06-20 18:12
Very beautiful and pleasant-looking picture!
Special regards to the chosen pov, composition, exposure and colors!
TFS - congrats,
mauro61 (52857) 2011-06-20 23:10
elementi sempre inseriti perfettamente nelle tue immagini in cui la natura è esaltata dai colori,
emka (98854) 2011-06-20 23:40
Interesting house indeed, wuth typical red colour but without grass roof that I like so much. Maybe siomeone living there just likes solitude? The other buildings or sheds look old.
The landscape in Scotland reminded me Norway- wide valleys (called glens) and a lot of water - lochs are like lakes or fjords. But the architectaure totally different.
jmdias (64994) 2011-06-21 2:56
the shapes of this house are lovely and I liked their contrast with the old barn at side and the contrast between the red and the greens of the background. excellent light and sharpness. TFS
sacavem (18620) 2011-06-21 9:05
A beautiful composition with great color contrast.Good clarity and sharpness,well done!
Giorgio (11279) 2011-06-21 10:37
- Ciao Pablo! Almost two-tone if we except the sky, the red and green, the symbol of the Norwegian campaign is here perfectly illustrated and accentuated by its grass roofs of the old barn, nice place a little desert at the foot of the hill least the opportunity for a nice photo, bravo!
All the best.
vasilpro (41317) 2011-06-22 8:25

that house, man..i'd love to get a chance to walk inside of it!
reading your note, i would agree that this house is strange for the area.
lovely lighting, colors, and subject.
well done as usual!
UlfE (14641) 2011-06-23 12:27
Wonderful scene with red house, the green mountain side and the blue sky. Excellent lighting. You get the impression that the weather is always like this in your part of Norway. TFS and have a nice evening!

Lepo mesto sa kucama od drveta, dobar prikaz lepim bojama i fotografijom.
Dobar snimak, ostrina, kontrast i kompozicija.
Lepo mesto za odmor od gradske buke i automobila.
Nice place with houses of wood, a good display of colors and beautiful photography.
Good shot, sharpness, contrast and composition.
Nice place to rest from the noise and cars.
All the best.
jlbrthnn (76037) 2011-06-24 7:24
The bright colors of the Norwegian houses are still very attractive. The composition is interesting, placing buildings on a green background. It is clever and nice to have kept a strip of blue sky. Excellent light, color and sharpness. Bravo.
Have a nice day
mvdisco (17794) 2011-06-24 7:26
Another beautiful landscape at the end of the road through Synnerdalen in Forollhogna NP.
Nice red building and lovely roof on the barn,
good saturation of colors and light,
My compliments and have a nice WE..
JCG (35129) 2011-06-24 9:36
Still a nice contrast between this very typical red and green environment that characterizes your region. Location to be nice to enjoy the quiet while it seems isolated according to your note... Beautiful image quality, as always, I appreciate the brightness and sharpness, thank you Pablo.
With all my friendships and a very good WE,
subhendu_bagchi (26089) 2011-06-24 21:42
another beautiful photograph from you. The red cottage is nicely placed in the canvas and created excellent contrast with the greens in background. Great depth and clarity. An excellent work. Tfs.
papagolf21 (102430) 2011-06-25 0:33
Bonjour, cher ami Pablo,
En effet, cette maison est inhabituelle, et c'est certainement ce qui fait son charme. Un lieu où la nature est royale.
Une très bonne photographie toujours aussi bien présentée et intéressante au point de vue du sujet traité.
danos (98535) 2011-06-25 1:29
Good morning Pablo,
a picturesque scenery with the red house to outlined against the green Mt.and at the same time to be the eye catcher and the focal point of the image.I like the brilliant light, as the way that enhance the vivid colours of the image.
Have a good weekend,Danos
jafadabret (56501) 2011-06-25 23:19
J'aime ce paysage avec ces constructions qui rappellent l'époque où ces lieux étaient habités toute l'année. La grange semble à bout de souffle alors que la maison rouge est toujours bien entretenue.
Didi (60588) 2011-06-26 2:50
Nice touch of red wwith a nice green background
I thin you should try 3/4 lights directions in the future.
ikeharel (72211) 2011-06-26 3:31
The red farm-house stands in excelent contrast to the hill on BG, where I spot 2 small creeks-waterfall's.
wonderful far away / end-of-the-road place.
Silvio1953 (144462) 2011-06-26 5:07
Ciao Pablo, beautiful composition with wooden barn and lovely red house, excellent clarity, splenddi light and colors, I like a lot, ciao Silvio
sacimar (26287) 2011-06-26 5:16
this is a good place to spend the weekend, far away of big cities, I like the composition with an interesting contrast between the red house and the green forest, well seen,
Waylim (25502) 2011-06-28 12:45
Once again a very lovely shot of the rural life in Norway, the red barnes makes a perfect point of focus, against the deep green forest and the lovely blue sky.
Beautiful composition and good quality overall.
plimrn (21344) 2011-06-29 3:53
Fine detail and excellent light management in this well-framed composition. The red house stands out well against the forested hillside, that touch of blue sky is an important part of the mood. Are those flashes of white on the hillside streams or snow? Great note, I'll be waiting to hear the answer to your mystery.
paura (47186) 2011-07-01 17:59
As cores fortes da construção devem ficar especialmente bonitas quando no inverno, com a paisagem tomada pelos frios brancos. As construções são um charme puro. Linda fotografia.
Charo (51212) 2011-07-06 7:57
Det er et vakkert sted der små fosser som kommer ned bakken mellom en tett vegetasjon.
God kontrast mellom det røde huset og andre bygninger ødelagt noe.
Clyde utmerket lys og flott bilde.
Cricri (120143) 2011-07-06 11:09
Une image magnifique de la Norvége avec ces maisons typique rouge qui fait aussi la beauté des paysage, très jolie présentation
skippy007 (12510) 2011-07-07 17:22
Hello Pablo, Nice rural scene you have captured here, the red house is a real eye-catcher. You raise some interesting questions from your observations, those barns suggest to me that at some stage this site was used for farming,no idea what type, the house looks in much better condition, could it have been built later or renovated? interesting. Thankyou
s_lush (16134) 2011-07-10 23:03
Such a colorful and picturesque end of the road is a very nice present for a traveler and photographer. Very good composition, beautiful combination of colors under bright sunlight, and perfect quality of this interesting landscape photo!
Angshu (56758) 2011-07-12 9:06
The red building stands out against the green slope & the old barn buildings adjacent. The light is excellent & used well with the blue sky a fine cap!
fds (9388) 2011-07-16 5:14
very beautiful document of end of the road
very beautiful farm very isolated place
and very nice norway landscape with fantastic colors
i love the norway
emilbo (22616) 2011-07-17 5:47
Toujours intéressantes les maisons rouges surtout bien présentées dans un décor de campagne. Les bâtiments qui l'entourent, usés par le temps, ajoutent beaucoup d'intérêt à la scène. Bel éclairage et beau contraste de couleurs avec le vert.
Toutes mes félicitations et merci de ta visite,
anel (563) 2011-09-27 6:20
Love this idea of "end of the road"... very pleasant place with special atmosphere. It would be surely interesting to find out about the story of the place.
Very luminous and interesting posting.
Thanks too for your kind critique on my bridge.
Have a nice evening
