This little cottage is located near the road through Endalen in Forollhogna NP, and shown in an earlier posting.
I have never actually seen anyone around the place, it is of very low standard and contains most likely only a bed and some cooking facilities…
The best thing about the cottage is the location, middle in the NP and near the road after a 20 km drive! And no other cabins nearby, you can be all alone if you like.
By the way – “DALABU” means something like “Valley Cottage”…
“Full size” image of the cottage is posted as WS.

This mixture of red and black caught my eye. That cute half covered lace curtain is a bonus. A charming door with a window with superb colors and tone.

The point of view is showing the details and colors of a section of the cottage. It is clear and sharp. There is a good contrast between the colors of the window and the colors of the facade. Have a nice day.

Kanskje det er en helg hus, virker det velholdte.
Storslått ramme med god grafikk og teksturer.

Un sujet simple, des couleurs très attratives. J'aime l'étroite fenêtre et son petit rideau de dentelle sur le mur rouge.
Merci pour le partage et bonne journée.

splendido taglio, molto bello l'effetto grafico ottenuto ed i colori sui quali si ritaglia il suo spazio la scritta. Eccellente la qualità, complimenti.
Un caro saluto

Hello Pablo - What is it about windows with hand-made lace curtains that makes them such a super subject? A simple and lovely shot with nothing to distract. Have a good weekend. Rosemary
Kielia (24073) 2011-07-08 11:03
a beautiful impression of this traditional window and an outstanding composition. The colors are really wonderful. My compliments, also for the nice note!
chawax (19758) 2011-07-08 14:18
A nice graphical details on this cottage. I love the mix of red vertical lines and black horizontal lines. I love too the contrast between the black door and the white window. Nice colours and good sharpness.
macjake (60508) 2011-07-08 15:49
simple but effective display of contrasts.
white versus black, and vertical lines mixed with horizontal lines.

Hi Pablo, an excellent image nice and striking. I was debating if I would have cropped or taken the image the way you have.. I say that as I would maybe have tried taking one which included the door in full.. but then may have lost the symmetry. Have a great weekend Rich

Not the usual picture of you with the nice landscapes, but a nice detailed picture with the small window and lace decoration.
DALABU is this Norwegian!
Excellent composition, pleasant for look at.
Very well done, TFS.
Have a nice Sunday,

xcelente nitidez e ajustes de exposição para nos mostrar esse charme de detalhes arquitetônicos. Muito boa fotografia.
wgreis (8267) 2011-07-10 17:54
The clipping of the photo is interesting Pablo, valuing the details of the wooden wall, and door and window. The lace curtain in the window offers a more value in the photo. Congratulations.
mauro61 (52631) 2011-07-10 23:12
buona la resa di questa immagine minimalista con il forte impatto del colore.
Bella finestra con tendina ricamata ad aggiungere valore all'immagine,
ikeharel (62013) 2011-07-11 3:44
The info in your note is most enlighting - but when looking in the pic. I could not tell it's a distant place, Pablo - the lace curtain must suggest someone lives there: otherwise who would care to hange a curtain...??
Simple and plain, yet a nice shot.
janusz2054 (2) 2011-07-11 10:41
Nice details on part of the cottage.
Sharpness and colors tone are perfect .

Hello dear Pablo
At last, a close look at the Norwegian red that adorns many of your pictures!
Looks more like a stain than a paint.
It enlights beautifully here the two paradoxal icons of rural life, wich are different by the color and size!
Quite an eye catcher!
Thanks for your kind words.
gunbud (34066) 2011-07-11 14:36
Very simple image with strong colors and rich details.
Love the old black door against the tiny lace curtiained window and your most interesting note.
jlbrthnn (76037) 2011-07-11 14:43
This kind of photo has a lot of charm. We guess a comfortable and well maintained housing environment. Colors are beautiful, this lace curtain catches the eye. Excellent quality. Bravo.
Have a nice day
Graal (99762) 2011-07-12 0:05
simple theme and nice finaly effect of Your photowork. Fine colourful cottage. Good presentation.
Have a nice day.
papagolf21 (89684) 2011-07-12 0:20
Bonjour, cher Pablo,
Le cadrage serré accentue l'effet de la petitesse de l'ensemble.
Ce que j'aime également c'est le nom de la "propriété" au-dessus de la porte !
Une excellente photo comme à l'accoutumée.
pajaran (54492) 2011-07-12 9:49
Dobar dan popodne.
Vrlo interesantna drvena vrata, prozor i zid, lepe boje i fotografija.
Dobar tekst,ostrina snimka i kontrast, moje cestitke.
A good day in the afternoon.
Very interesting wooden doors, window and wall, beautiful colors and images.
Good article, sharpness and image contrast, my congratulations.
jemaflor (88707) 2011-07-12 10:53
Well framed, good close up on these details of this old house, perfect sharpness, tfs.
UlfE (14641) 2011-07-12 11:04
Great photo and great note. I like your cropping of the photo and the attractive and colours. The cottage seems well maintained and I am sure the owner visit it now and then. The lace curtain does look old but probably not very old. I would say it look perfect in the window. Very well spotted. TFS and have a nice evening!
subhendu_bagchi (25973) 2011-07-12 19:59
nice minimal composition here. Bit unusual from you but very nicely composed. Colours of the wall are fine and the writting over the door added a lot. Very well done. Tfs.
rodgerg (55767) 2011-07-13 2:39
I like this framing! Very graphic composition with the door and especially the sympatic small white window which arise very well in the red of the BG.
plimrn (21344) 2011-07-13 18:41
Nicely framed with the cottage name and that bit of lace curtain. That white curtain makes the cottage feel well maintained; I appreciate your including the meaning of the name.
maloutim (9637) 2011-07-14 0:43
After seeing so many of your red cottages in the background of sceneries, this close-up makes a nice difference.
You have made a lovely graphic photo of it. Even in its simplicity, it looks inviting and well-kept.
So a lot of these cottages are open to travellers are they ? I have just read the note of your previous photo, and I find it interesting.
Thanks for sharing and have a good day.
kordinator (19844) 2011-07-14 1:15
Simple theme witk nice idea and excellent realization.
Fine vertical and horizontal line.

Jolie présentation de ce petit cottage près de la route Endalen in Forollhogna NP.
Very nice POV. of the old wood door and window,
I like it..
sacimar (26201) 2011-07-14 11:16
interesting close up of this cottage, I like the colors and the elements we can see, it's a good combination with a great visual result, well done,
Budapestman (82620) 2011-07-14 11:54
a very nice architectural detail with nostalgic atmosphere and vivid colours, the composition is attractive, Tfs! Have a nice evening, my friend! Kellemes estét kívánok!
nikkitta (16436) 2011-07-14 14:23
So this time not a landscape with a cottage but a
very simple and well composed capture with great contrasting colors
But what really I like is the lace curtain, handmade I suppose
Lovely place to spend some days
Longroute (19396) 2011-07-15 2:01
Very simple composition which shows like simplicity often pays... (:-) the door and the window offer graphical patterns while the wall is peculiar for its colour and textures. The sign on top stimulates our curiosity.
Have a nice day,
jafadabret (56501) 2011-07-15 10:34
J'aime la simplicité des formes et la composition bien pensée.
Les couleurs donnent de la force à l'image.
Bien réalisé !
TopGeo (38206) 2011-07-16 1:42
Ciao Pablo, simple and lovely red color and composition a word and a window with a curtain perfect sharpness and colors. I think someone looks inside?
paololg (31448) 2011-07-16 8:50
Ciao dear Pablo,
pleasant and interesting close-up of this detail that shows the little window, with the nice embroidered curtain, a testimony that this red cottage is inhabited by a family. Excellent definition of details, especially the black door, not easy to obtain with this good quality. Bravo!
Ciao, have a nice weekend!
s_lush (16134) 2011-07-16 21:39
Combination of the red and white is traditional for both your photos and Norwegian architecture itself. In this case they are nicely added with other colors and such an interesting element as this lace curtain. Excellent composition, high-quality capture and informative note!
shevchenko (18892) 2011-07-17 19:29
What a pretty facade with a little window and allow a glimpse into the interior, I like the lace curtain and the writting above the door, a facade that full with old feel, good close up to show it, thanks for sharing.
josepmarin (57881) 2011-07-18 3:59
I like the simplicity of this composition, in a good close-up, and that you have based in the color of the wooden cabin, in the door, the sign with its name, and the window with a delicious lace curtain.
These simple elements create a great composition, very attractive at sight.
Well done, my friend.
Waylim (25368) 2011-07-18 18:51
Even though the window is smaller that the door, but the white against red really stand out much better than the black door. Beautiful details in the laces of the curtina and it is the highlight of this composition.
Rafer (15669) 2011-07-20 3:48
Bonita foto casi minimalista!! buen contràste y buen recorte!!! Saludos Pablo
Angshu (56462) 2011-07-20 21:39
A very nicely composed image, almost minimal & yet the graphic effect & colour combination makes it very attractive. The small lace curtain in the small window is a fine attraction!
Bluejeans (64249) 2011-07-24 7:19
Ola Pablo ,
Belo contraste entre preto e vermelho nesta parede de madeira , gostei do detalhe da pequena janela branca , boa luz , parabéns!!
Um abraço Gonçalo

Hello Pablo, When I heard about the dreadful killings in Norway my first thoughts were of you, you are the only person I communicate with from that part of the world, hope you were not directly effected by it. The red always grabs the attention, nice the contrast between it & the black, cute little white lace curtain, nice WS showing the complete Dalabu.
batalay (36689) 2011-07-26 21:54
The "Valley Cottage" — you've composed the shot flawlessly, using the door and window as a pair of counterpoints.
I want to offer my deep sympathies to you and to your compatriots for the tragedy that took place in Oslo a few days ago. Somehow one gets used to acts of insanity in the United States, but does not expect it to take place in Norway. But then, we don't have total monopoly over the crazies.
Juntas (7960) 2011-07-28 9:19
Hi Pablo. You show us very well this beautiful houses and this time this detail only confirm how beautiful they are. Great light, good colors and sharpness and well balanced composition.
Fine work. Have a nice evening.
Hansaphotos (7215) 2011-08-05 2:16
A striking image with splendid details on the red wall. The few elements in a well balanced composition. Amazing colours. Very nice work. TFS. Have a nice day.
