When this image was taken in early June we still had hopes for a fine summer of 2011..!
Now we know that didn’t happen, fact is the summer has been the worst for ages, weather wise. Depending on the criteria, but some says it is the worst for 111 years, which means since the recordings started. Needless to say photography has been suffering!
An amazing amount of rain, we had regular flooding in August that is very unusual, if it happens that takes place in May/June or late autumn after heavy rain.
Now the hope is for a fine autumn hehehe…
The image shows the small wooden church (1754) in Enodd, a village passed on the road to Forollhogna National Park, which I visited twice this summer.

J'aime beaucoup ces maisons rouges norvégiennes. Elles ajouteny beaucoup de caractère aux paysages, Ici, le point de vue entres les bouleaux et la clôture est parfait.
holmertz (43293) 2011-09-05 5:53
Great colours and composition. The birch trees and the wooden fence provide a fine foreground and the church is nicely surrounded by green leaves and grass that complement the red very well. Yes, we had great hopes a few months ago. Next year maybe...:-)

Yup, you know Norway. You can never expect sun... By the way, I'm sure you mean the summer of 2011 in the intro there.
The picture is very nice. A nice framing with the trees and the fence. Perhaps a little too much of them, but it would be hard to make it any better. Still, the red church catches the attention well. And well, I think it shows a piece of Norway. Good work!

Hello PAblo ,
A splendid red wooden church , from a well chosen POV . Fine effect of the fence and the trunks in the FG .
gildasjan (41946) 2011-09-05 7:42
Ce rouge est du plus bel effet sous ce magnifique ciel et les feuillages de ces arbres donnent un bon cachet à cette réalisation.
jmdias (57601) 2011-09-05 7:58
very beautiful the shapes and the reds of this church behing the tree, this pov created a nice visual effect. nice light and sharpness. very bautiful image.
pierrefonds (58810) 2011-09-05 7:59
The trees and the fence are framing well the church. The point of view is showing the details and colors of the architecture of the church. It is clear and sharp. The afternoon light is bringing out the colors. Have a nice day.

Une très belle église en bois comme on pouvait en rencontrer autrefois !
J'aime la lumière qui fait ressortir le beau rouge des façades.

- Ciao Pablo! The same bad weather in France alas! Sympathetic and nice composition well choice for this poetic wooden church, very artistic and well vivid coloured, happy attraction for this verdant surrounding, well done!
wgreis (8267) 2011-09-05 10:57
Pablo Interestingly I have noticed that the houses in Norway there are basically painted red.
His photo shows a nice-looking, particularly in the foreground is where the fence and trees with a very interesting texture in the trunks.
Congratulations, big hug and a great week.
josepmarin (57837) 2011-09-05 12:08
after the worst summer in many years, I hope that the autumn is much better.
Luckily you could take this nice photo in early June, with a good light and with a few beautiful colors.
I like the architecture of this wooden church and its red color, which you have combined skillfully with the green tones of the trees and of the grass, in a composition with a very effective framing.
A beautiful work.
cornejo (34088) 2011-09-05 12:56
Hello Paul, a good photo of a beautiful house in a lovely setting, a very sharp picture with very good quality, good job well done, congratulations. Good night and happy week.
A warm hug.
PaulVDV (23417) 2011-09-05 15:18
Except for the flooding we had the same miserable summer here in Belgium. The only really nice summer days I had, were the 10 days I spent in Sweden.
The picture however suggests a beautiful day with many pieces of blue sky between the clouds and with nice shadows of the foliage on the wooden fence.
The composition is excellent and the vivid red wooden facade and tower in a green surrounding are so typical Scandinavian and a real eyecatcher.
Best regards, Paul

Also in Poland it was a bad summer, but i can't tell for how many years. Now we are enjoying fine weather but the autumn is approaching. beautfiful church, unusual red wooden one. it looks great behind the birch trees. Delightful composition.

UlfE (14641) 2011-09-06 10:48
Obviously not the most representative photo of the summer of 2011 in Norway. but for sure a wonderful summer photo. I love your inclusion of the birch trees and the wooden fence in the foreground. I sure this is much better photo than a photo taken standing at the fence. The wooden church with walls painted in red very nice and unusal. TFS and have nice evening!
jlbrthnn (76037) 2011-09-06 13:43
The summer will be beautiful:) very beautiful image which expected from a very beautiful season to come. The light, the colors, the neatness are excellent. I appreciate the framing which uses these trees. Bravo.
Have a nice evening

Many thanks for your kind words Pablo.
Blushing and hiding behind trees and fence!
There's nothing to be embarrassed about; she looks lovely and so young wearing such an "à la mode" make-up!
Keep on hanging around old churches: It's good for your soul and a pleasure for our eyes!
Graal (99174) 2011-09-06 23:41
wooden a small red church is very nice. Fine contrast of colours. Image well composed. Good light and summer mood here. Hope it will without flood there. With us weather is fine, sunny.

A beautiful and charming red house with white windows and wooden fence. The green trees and the blue sky create a very pleasant atmosphere. It is really enticing. The image is sharp with superb colors.
mauro61 (52631) 2011-09-07 3:05
mi piacciono i colori di questa scena con l'immagine che ha negli alberi e nel recinto un'ottima apertura.
La luce e le ombre esaltano la bellezza del soggetto,

Especially red color suits the house very nice...
Ligh management is excellent too.
Every season has many kind of beauties by showing on arts as if each of them introduces its art maker of every thing...
ikeharel (60485) 2011-09-07 8:10
I know this summer had been unusualy rainy and stormy in Norway, from people at my work - who taken a trip there.
Nice this red wooden church, in a fine surroundings, with excelent clearity and contrast.
mvdisco (17784) 2011-09-07 10:04
Beautiful presentation of this fence in front of the picture with a beautiful red house,

Bonsoir, cher Pablo,
Les couleurs de l'été sont magnifiquement mises en valeur à travers cette très belle réalisation.
Un cadrage réalisé avec soin et talent.

nikkitta (15824) 2011-09-08 13:59
Don't complain about the Summer, here in Argentina Winter was the worst in...many,many years, days without sun and with..ashes from a Chilean volcano, no flights and not sky at all
Anyway you compose a Summer shot plenty of colors (great red church)and contrasts
Like the wooden fence as a kind of frame
Note: Here also milk was transported and delivered in the same recipient as in India
maloutim (9637) 2011-09-09 1:25
Your favourite subject, typical wooden buidings painted red. At first sight, I thought it was a house with an elaborate architecture. All the more interesting to know it's an old church, so well kept after all these years !
Great composition with this close-up and the natural decoration provided by the lace of the tree branches.
Marvellous bright, happy colours that probably make you nostalgic about good weather.
As you say, one must hope for a good after-season.
Have a great weekend.
Kielia (23993) 2011-09-09 7:51
the image is a delight for the architect and for everybody who loves the Norwegian churches. A very well composed impression of this beautiful place with fascinating details. The colors and the light are fantastic. Excellent photo work!
I also enjoyed reading your nice note. I fully agree to you concerning this awful summer!
Waylim (25368) 2011-09-09 11:36
The red house out in the beautiful country side is alway a wonderful photo, love the tree in the foreground give so much depth, excellent composiiton and well managed light between light and shadow, color are also beuatiful and natural.

I wonder by your note. And we had normal weather all summer long. Very nice summer composition, splendid colours. TFS!
Have a great weekend!

Vrlo interesantan i dobar tekst ...
Lep pogled preko drvene ograde i stabla na staru drvenu crkvu, lepa fotografija.
Dobar strina snimka i kontrast kojim ste naglasili detalje na arhitekturi i prikazali lepim bojama.
Prijatan dan i sve najbolje za vikend.
Very interesting and good text ...
Very nice view over the wooden fence and trees on the old wooden church, beautiful photos.
Good aunt shot and contrast what you have pointed out the architectural details and view the beautiful colors.
Have a nice day and all the best for the weekend.

Good morning Pablo,
excellent the brilliant light management with the vivid colours to make the scene so adorable.I like the clarity as the sharpness of this beautiful wooden church with the red paint to be the eye caching of the shot as contrast perfect with the other colours of the scene.
Have a good weekend,Danos
Vasa (16778) 2011-09-10 3:39
Natural shot of regional beauty. Worth thematic contribution from sunny day. Thank you Pablo for your presence. Friendly
Budapestman (82620) 2011-09-10 13:56
Hi Dear Pablo,
a beautiful atmosphere with splendid colours and lights, the composition is very nice, a very nice shot, Tfs! Have a nice weekend! Kellemes hétvégét kívánok!
Angshu (56406) 2011-09-10 22:33
When you say worst summer, do you mean you had no summer at all this time around?
The bright red church is striking in the quite strong light. Framed well with the trees, the red colour also contrasts well with the cyan sky. Well done!
Longroute (19396) 2011-09-11 0:14
You were not alone in that! My daughter lives in London and they had no summer at all. Same thing in Germany and Switzerland I heard....
Fine composition much in your style, with a classic Norwegian red church surrounded by fine trees and lawn. The colours are really so vivid and summer like and the subject much deserving.
Pleasant and very sharp.
Have a nice day,
paololg (31448) 2011-09-11 8:04
Ciao dear Pablo,
beautiful image, with these birch trees that enrich the sight of this lovely red church. A pleasant image perfectly composed, with excellent photo quality. I am sorry for the bad weather that you have had this summer, I'm sure that the autumn will give you beautiful colors. Excellent work, congratulations!
Ciao, have a nice week!
s_lush (16134) 2011-09-11 9:06
Despite the unfavorable weather during this summer, you have managed finding an excellent sunny period and taking a very colorful and bright picture. The red church looks beautiful among the white birch trunks and in the interesting natural frame. Perfectly good result under harsh weather conditions!
yedirenk (11244) 2011-09-21 5:22
Hi Dear Pablo,
a charming painting with nice details and excellent red color effect..amazing sharpness and clarity..superb presentation with impressive framing and cropping..very beautiful ambiance,like a tale..TFS
Uhu (8507) 2011-09-22 2:36
So it was? In Russia's North-West it was not that bad as previous one, not that hot. Also, last summer there were no rain for two months, and this summer it was significantly more often...
Anyway, here are the very good photo, intense red color - seems like whole Sweden and half of Norway being painted this paint.
marcan44 (6299) 2011-09-22 5:15
an excellent composition, I still had not seen a wooden church and even red.
The church is surrounded by trees and grass and the colors are very nice.
Great framing and sharpness.
Have a nice day,
macjake (58992) 2011-09-26 10:41
now this is a classic Pablo shot!
with all the reds and greens :)
excellent level of sharpness, clarity, brightness, and full of vibrant colors. love to the sharp rooftop too.
danyy (0) 2011-09-26 23:46
un trio de teintes fortes, rouge, bleu et vert, en bonne proportion, donne toute la dimension de cette campagne sous le soleil. Une photo simple comme l'est cette demeure, agréable à regarder et sans doute à habiter.
fabianoleite (9665) 2011-10-01 14:54
The red woodwork of the house is fantastic. Great framing with the trees and fence, excellente work, congratulations!
baddori (20021) 2011-10-18 9:40
Foto paradigmatica che precede una estate incombente e la peggiore ...e le prossime .
Godiamo questo ambiente sereno col colore tipico, nazionale , norvegese.
arijit_ghosh86 (795) 2011-10-21 5:44
I will rather suggest.."Its the Summer of '69"
very beautiful and well taken..Brilliant framing.
Nice crisp shot. POV is good too.
COSTANTINO (57993) 2011-11-25 22:56
I chose this shot because it is very impressive
the red house makes a dynamic contrast
and the foreground adds the difference
lights and shadows play together
have a nice week end
