I think I may have mentioned it before, but this summer was very wet!
With some good will I can find only two advantages with all this rain – the electricity bill coming winter will be low as all reservoirs are filled to the rim, and the landscape looks incredibly fresh and green during a rainy summer!
The weather was strange in July, more like the rainy season in tropical regions as the days could start out great with high temperatures but we always got this heavy rain shower in the afternoon…
Unfortunately the autumn won’t be much either photo wise, as the leaves are already blown off the trees by strong wind!
The bottom line is, 2011 has been a very poor year for outdoor photography in my part of the world…
By the way, the present view was taken from the road on a trip to Forollhogna National Park.

bellissima questa distesa verde con le case rosse in centro tra prati verdi e foreste.
Imagine di ottima qualità ben presentata,

I wish we had the rain you complained about, here in Israel, Pablo my friend !
Fine shadows and lightened areas in a beautiful park area, so much green all around, and the red wooden houses standing-out in contrast through the middle of all this fine area.

ti lamenti per il cattivo tempo di questa estate che non ti ha permesso di fare le foto che avresti voluto.
Ma l'incipiente autunno vedrai che con i suoi colori caldi ti darà nuove idee per ottenere quegli scatti di grande valore ed eleganza che condividi abitualmente con gli amici di TE.
In questo scatto hai saputo spezzare sapientemente la distesa di verde con la striscia rossa delle case.
Per il resto grande nitidezza e eccellente composizione.

The vegetation is so green! Love the intensive tones and excellent warm light. Great image. Bravo!

A beautifully lit landscape composition with sparkling colours. The red buildings make a splendid contrast with the encircling greenery which encompasses a lovely range of verdant tones. The image has great depth and exceptional sharpness.

A beautiful landscape with green lush everywhere. Those cute red buildings are very attractive and form a nice contrast to the greenery. The gray sky adds a touch of beauty to the image. Well captured with superb colors and sharpness.
tober (8797) 2011-09-27 4:32
Hi Pablo, you have have captured a great scenery with various tones of green and plenty of sunlight despite the undecisive weather as you mentioned in your note. The red houses at the distance create a good contrast against the overall green texture. Congratulations. Tolga
papagolf21 (84628) 2011-09-27 4:34
Bonjour, cher ami Pablo,
Le spectacle présenté ici est de grande qualité.
Les fermes et maisons rouges forment de jolies taches sur ce vert camaïeu du plus bel effet.
Très belle réussite.
wgreis (8267) 2011-09-27 5:12
Hello Pablo, see all the vegetation is green and very pleasant. Beautiful photo with the traditional red houses in the background.

There are always these better moments if you just have a chance to wait. Sun lights exactly right part of the scene with all those red Norwegian farm buildings. Lovely landscape.
Finnish summer weather was not so bad although, nothing to compare with the previous summer. In fact the weather in Germany was much worse when I made a visit there in July.
Sergiom (57673) 2011-09-27 5:29
J'aime beaucoup ces belles taches rouges au centre de l'image. Les maisons et les granges sont comme figées dans une immensité de vert . Le paysage est magnifique.
pierrefonds (56040) 2011-09-27 7:43
The trees are framing well the farm. The point of view is sending my eyes toward the mountains which is giving depth to the composition. The cloudy sky is giving a good contrast to the colors. Have a nice day.
John_F_Kennedy (42062) 2011-09-27 8:57
The rich green of the vegetation has brilliant and nice tones. A beautiful scenery.
cornejo (29979) 2011-09-27 10:55
Hello Paul, a good photo of this charming landscape with meadows and beautiful forests, also the contrast of those pretty red buildings, a good decision with clarity and quality, and pretty good job very well done, congratulations. Good afternoon and happy week.

Another piece of art in your portfolio: The variable intensity of light concentrates attention on those ruby stones that make the best of themselves, so surrounded by a fir crown in this appealing jewel box.
sabermonajati (9175) 2011-09-27 12:06
tasteful paysage you captured ,colors are vivid and fascinating.
fotka (3391) 2011-09-27 12:10
The different tones of green color on your photo looks great. I think a lot of rain helped with those colors.
The red buildings, typical color in Norway, added life to green background. Superb colors, light, sharpness and interesting note.
francio64 (38276) 2011-09-27 12:39
bella vista del villaggio circondato da tanto verde.
Le case rosse contrastano bene con il verde dell'erba.
Composizione piacevole e ben curata.

un paysage qui me rappelle beaucoup la Schwartzwald en Allemagne, aussi vallonné et aussi vert. Des couleurs fortes qui honorent la nature.
Beaucoup de champ et de profondeur.

Hi Pablo, Lovely landscape of Norway, with typical red houses. The Norway's Green is unique. superb colours, great photowork.

Wow, ..very impressive place, very impressive green fields, excellent landscape photography! Great composition and framing, so many beautiful red points and impressive sky! Excellent light management, wonderful colours! Congratulations!
jmdias (54031) 2011-09-28 3:05
very beautiful thge red buildings contrasting with the greens around. I liekd the strips of shadows mixed with these iluminated areas, creating more textures and dof. nice job.
here in my homeland we had the coldest winter in these last 10 years, with many frosts, storms and dry weeks. at this moment the wind is blowing from south pole and it is so much fresh for almost october, that is one of the hottest months of the year.
jhm (137518) 2011-09-28 3:37
We are almost at the autumn time, happy you shows us a lovely summer countryside picture.
The green colors with a farm middle of these splendid area
Very well composition, good presentation too. TFS.
Giorgio (11279) 2011-09-28 7:09
- Superb place Pablo, very nice verdant landscape on the hills under a cloudy sky, amazing greens and excellent technical quality and sharpen are undeniable bonus, well done!
All the best.
Longroute (19394) 2011-09-28 7:44
Yes! really so green!
I would have used the title from a famous film of the fifties: "How green was my valley" by John Ford. (from a novel by Richard Llewellyn). You found a good pov and most of all a good moment to photograph it, that last light illuminating the farm while the foreground is in the shade create a lovely effect. The red houses are- as usual in most of your photos - the perfect eye catchers and I like the great sense of depth created by the hills and the distant mountains.
All that gives a special atmosphere and make the image very appealing.
paninho (2931) 2011-09-28 10:29
Magnifique paysage superbement mis en image! Belle définition, belle lumière. Le rayon de soleil sur les maisons donne un charme supplémentaire à cette carte postale de Norvège! Good work my friend!

Un très joli paysage d'un vert plein de fraîcheur et d'un contraste typique des bâtiments rouges, belle lumière en contraste avec les montagnes sombre, belle réalisation
josepmarin (57689) 2011-09-30 1:34
this landscape is precious, I like its variety of green tonalities, and the different textures that offer us the fields, hills and forests.
The rainy summer provides this great chromatic beauty to us, but at the same time, impedes the outdoor photos, and is a pity, because the Norwegian landscapes are splendid.
Nevertheless, this photo is a great success, because of its great beauty, its good luminosity and its great image quality.
rodgerg (55767) 2011-09-30 4:34
Very charming summer's landscape with these red houses and farmhouse which arise very well in the green of vegetation. The composition in differents plans give a great depht to the composition. Good managment of light too with natural colors.
Have a nice WE,
Kielia (23273) 2011-09-30 9:09
another very inviting composition of the countryside, you have captured this beautiful landscape excellently. The harmonious colors make this impression very attractive. A very pleasant sight. My compliments!

Hi Dear Pablo,
a beautiful landscape with picturesque colours and lights, the composition is spectacular, peaceful and romantic atmosphere, I like it! Tfs! Have a nice weekend! Kellemes hétvégét kívánok!
ChrisJ (95734) 2011-10-01 7:29
This superb landscape would make a good painting. Excellent framing, composition, colour, sharpness & saturation. I like the cleared part in the middle with the red walled houses. Tfs!
macjake (54830) 2011-10-01 10:03
and i think i have mentioned it before - that this is truly your signature style!
I have to agree with you about the weather in our local area too. Our summer had very little sun, alot of rain, and cooler temps.
as for this shot, love the greenery everywhere! so full of life, and the red strip in the middle is just icing on the cake.
its a lovely color arrangement.
have a great w/e
SWEETFREEDOM (22196) 2011-10-01 10:25
beautiful green . i like the contrast with the red farms, and the game of light and shadows.
UlfE (14641) 2011-10-01 11:42
The weather might not have been very good in the summer of 2011. But this does not necessarily mean that the weather conditions are not good for outdoor photography. I really like the lighting in this photo. The shades of green are very nice here and the constast between the sunlit farm buildings and the shades surroundings is very attractive. Really fine composition and perfect sharpness. TFS and have a nice weekend!
agulberk (3794) 2011-10-01 19:15
Wonderful green forest areas with beautiful red clor houses that give very nice contrast. you captured very well with good light management and choosed excellent perspective, provided well depth and sharphness.
wolf38 (31258) 2011-10-02 1:21
Hello Pablo. Norwegian landscape with bright colors. Especially the red is a color signal. The light is very well represented. Well seen and realized. Really very nice. Rgds, Wolfgang.
jlbrthnn (79791) 2011-10-02 2:20
It is an attractive "photographic painting", with a light and remarkable colors. I like the composition, and the magnificent landscape. Excellent quality. Bravo.
s_lush (16134) 2011-10-02 9:30
Despite the wet summer, you have managed capturing a really warm, green and sunny scene showing beautiful features of Norwegian nature and rural architecture. Excellent composition, bright light, vivid colors and very high quality!
Angshu (55255) 2011-10-05 7:06
The red barns & other houses really stand out amidst the lush green! The freshness of the green is evident on the meadows. What I also like the play of light & shadow of the clouds. Well done!
paololg (31448) 2011-10-05 8:51
Ciao dear Pablo,
you chose the best moment to capture this village illuminated by the sun in a green sea. Excellent depth and clarity, but also very nice contrast between the red of the houses and the green around. Bravo!
Ciao, have a nice evening!
J_Burke (1285) 2011-10-07 2:40
Excellent view point, I like the way the image seems to be layered in texture,shades of green and light and shadow. Great colours, the red buildings in the middle distance are a great addition, well framed. Thanks for sharing.
jafadabret (56501) 2011-10-12 2:05
Le rouge des maisons ressort magnifiquement dans ce beau paysage où le vert domine.
Belle plage de lumière sur le centre !

Kitty_the_Wild (1169) 2011-11-10 0:59
So vivid a green is very pleasant, it drives toughts to springs and freshness in a scandinavian mood, with love of nature and open spaces. Red buildings as jewels...I'm so fond of these landscapes.
gildasjan (41358) 2011-11-24 7:49
Superbe paysage avec un vert éclairé de très belle façon.Le rouge apporte une excellente touche à cette image.
