Trondheim is centrally located in Norway and lies at the mouth of the River Nidelva on the south shore of Trondheimsfjord. This fjord is the third longest fjord in Norway. Trondheim was once called Nidaros and was the capital city until 1217. The Vikings used Trondheim as a departure harbour for its expeditions.
There are many old wooden buildings in the city and the warehouses shown in this picture line the river. The cathedral can also be seen.

very nice place and view here. I like the colorful facades, reflections in water and architecture of cathedral tower. Nice presentation.
Have a nice evening.

Nice perspective of these colorful houses and their reflections
A luminous scenery as well
Good use of the tiny buoys at FG
best regards, have a nice evening

This is an excellent photo. The beautiful old houses are beautifully reflected and you have "anchored" the composition perfectly in the two red buoys. I get an impression they were left there for the benefit of observant photograpers. They also form a kind of triangle with the top of the church tower. You were blessed with fine weather and a very good light, but a less gifted photographer could probably have wasted such an opportunity anyway.

amazing picture - well done! I like the format in here which enahnces all the vertical lines of the composition. The reflections of the houses in the water add more color to the lower part of the image. Very interesting architecture and nicely presented.
Thanks for sharing

Very well done!

de jolies maisons colorées avec de superbes reflets sur la rivière. une très belle capture.

Hi Ann, very good picture of this interesting place with beautiful buildings built over the water, very well composed and captured in this interesting image, with good sharpness, depth, light and beautiful color. Excellent and interesting job well done, congratulations my friend. Thanks for sharing this beautiful work.
Good night and happy weekend.
Best wishes from southern Spain.

This is a delightful and colourful photograph, perfectly composed with the cathedral spire perfectly placed, a lovely diagonal on the facades of the warehouses, fine reflections on the water and, of course, the two red buoys in the foreground topping it off nicely. Gorgeous light and colours, perfect exposure and exquisite details and sharpness. And all beneath a fine blue aky. What more could one ask for?
An interesting note too about this place. Am I right in thinking that these tall narrow buildings are no longer used as warehouses but have probably been converted into expensive apartments?
chrislo (4155) 2014-04-17 14:35
A delightful view from this city with an attractive waterfront, with beautiful rich colours. This row of warehouses is eyecatching and captured with good détails. Excellent choice of the vertical format to emphasize the height of the buildings and create a nice balance with the lovely reflections in the rippled water. The FG red buoys are a nice add-on to this beautiful cityscape, the icing on the cake I should say. Perfect !
carlo62 (38629) 2014-04-17 15:02
splendide facciate colorate, ottima la tua inquadratura.
Mi piace come hai composto la foto, con la torre perfettamente posizionata, così come la boa rossa, ovviamente, i riflessi accentuano magnificamente l'effetto delle facciate.
rogerl (1544) 2014-04-17 15:02
Ann, lovely framing and great colors in this shot. The filtered sun from the left, and the mostly calm waters, lend a peaceful feel to the scene. Thanks.
lousat (82500) 2014-04-17 16:02
Hi Ann,i been there 22 years ago and nothing is changed as i can see,the old fishermen houses are still there,so beautiful and nice with their colors,great capture with bright colors and beautiful reflections,i like it! Have a nice day and thanks,Luciano

Ils sont très beaux ces bâtiments en bois qui se reflètent magnifiquement dans l'eau. Lumière parfaite qui rend les couleurs très attrayantes. Bien fait.
jjcordier (78988) 2014-04-17 22:37
Très belle photo de ces façades colorées de Trondheim et de leurs reflets. Superbe lumière et très bon cadrage vertical.
emka (86391) 2014-04-17 23:38
Hello Ann, Beautiful photo of the colourful houses and its reflections. Excellently composed photo with superb sharpness and colours. Good choice of the vertical format. I wonder if you have photos of this cathedral, it is a magnificent example of gothic architecture but so difficult to present.
Happy Easter to you and your family
SnapRJW (31627) 2014-04-17 23:43
This shot has all the ingredients for a good presentation Ann. The colourful and distinctive buildings scream out to be photographed and here with the good light their colour is enhanced. The reflections are lovely too with an attractive shimmering distortion created by the ruffled water.
A super shot.
Have a good Easter
CLODO (32144) 2014-04-18 0:51
The morning light illuminates the various colored houses and gives an impressionism pattern to the water. The 2 red buoys are well located to indicate you the way to frame this picture.
Royaldevon (33385) 2014-04-18 0:59
This is a beautiful photograph, not only because of its warm colours, so generously reflected in the water, but, also, because of its mood. I felt a sense of relaxation the minute I surveyed it.
Your well-judged angle creates natural r/l movement across the frame, where the cathedral spire is strongly placed.
Because of the tranquillity of the water, I would suspect that you didn't take this from the boat.
Have a lovely Easter,
rbassin (19938) 2014-04-18 2:21
une magnifique photo avec de très belles couleurs;
un gros plan très bien fait sur ces façades et les reflets, avec en arrière le clocher.
Bon W-E pascal

iconic Scandinavian architecture and captured magnificently. The lines, colours and reflections here are just captivating. Stunning!
Enjoy the weekend - B.
dkmurphys (52697) 2014-04-18 3:09
Superb postcard from that amazing part of the Norwegian town. I like the calm atmosphere and the colored reflections. Well done!
sandpiper (6788) 2014-04-18 3:40
a great composition and lovely colours. Nice reflection.
snunney (89894) 2014-04-18 4:10
A precisely framed composition with superb light and colours. The lovely foreground reflections nicely counterbalance the austere lines of the cathedral tower.
mesutilgim (89070) 2014-04-18 4:38
Wonderfull capture from this beautiful Norvegian city which still keeps it's traditional architecture.
Very good pov and layout. The portrait format fit's well to your compo.
Very nice reflections.
TFS and have a nice weekend
saxo042 (37666) 2014-04-18 7:48
A very beautiful view! I have never been as far north in Norway as this city, but your picture makes me wish to go there. Very interesting houses and very fine colours, including the reflections in the water. The cathedral is nicely included and so are the two red buoys at each corner below. A fantastic picture!
Romano46 (18472) 2014-04-18 10:24
sei stata molto brava nel cogliere questo scorcio particolarmente bello della città di Trondheim che io ricordo abbastanza cupa e raccolta intorno alla famosa cattedrale.
Questo particolare angolo a me era sfuggito, ma te sei stata bravissima nel coglierlo e inserirlo in una magica visione nella quale alle belle e tipiche facciate delle antiche case norvegesi si unisce il profilo della cattedrale in una succesione di piani perfetta per una composizione impeccabile.
Ottimi colori, contrasto, nitidezza.
Un caro saluti e auguri di buona Pasqua
worldcitizen (7614) 2014-04-18 16:45
What a lovely row of buildings. The shapes and colors are beautiful, and I like the reflections that mirror them. You composed this perfectly, with the tall spire of the cathedral off to the left. Everything comes together seamlessly to create a great scene.
cebe (1483) 2014-04-18 17:45
I visited Trondheim several times and often thought these iconic warehouses were not so easy to photograph. Often poor light, commercial signs you want to avoid, an unpleasant element in the background, etc. Here you sure found an excellent point of view and it happened to be in beautiful weather at the right time of the day. Very pleasant view combining the colourful warehouse with the towers of the cathedral, the other outstanding landmark. Beautiful light and reflections.
Have a nice week-end, Claude.
Hanssie (10463) 2014-04-19 0:58
Nice "static" view on the coloured houses.
The buoys are the perfect details to make the foreground
marabu61 (9501) 2014-04-19 5:59
Now that is a beautiful take on the waterfront in Trondheim. The houses have lovely colors and the warm light is sublime. The reflections in the water are beautiful and the sky gorgeous. A great shot indeed.
have a great time

Belle lumière matinale qui rehausse les couleurs et donne de merveilleux reflets de ces bâtiments au bord de l'eau, très belle réalisation
eldancer1 (32015) 2014-04-19 10:22
Love those buildings, are the warehouses now being used as apartments? That seems to be the trend now, converting old warehouses to houses and apartments. Nicely captured with good lighting and sharp details. Love the reflections on the water. Wonderful colors. Well done, tfs.
photoray (13650) 2014-04-19 11:25
Attractive waterfront scene of Trondheim's classical buildings, multi colored and mirrored in the water, and the impressive church tower in the background.
Thanks for sharing,
Ninello52 (7572) 2014-04-19 14:46
They are simply enchanted by the beauty of this photo! Magnificent geometry of the frame, beautiful colors and reflections on the river! Very nice even light! Those beautiful old wooden houses fantastic and refined by the stilted wonderful architecture!
Best Regards, Nino.
fabbs99 (16817) 2014-04-23 12:24
Lovely view of the old warehouses.Truly exclusive.Excellent pov and sharpness. Very well done ,TFS.
siudzi (34141) 2014-04-25 13:00
What a fantastic capture full of amazing colors and details! The long water reflections made the view totally unique and charming. Perfectly seen and composed within the vertical frame. TFS!
kathryn_weir (2056) 2014-04-26 18:51
This is a wonderful capture that works so well in the extended vertical format you have chosen. I love the colours of the facades and the reflections . I also like the way the utilitarian looking facades are contrasted with the ornate spires
Thanks for sharing
RhodieIke (11742) 2014-04-27 22:13
This is beautiful, fantastic colours, architecture and reflection's.
The icing on the cake for me is the inclusion of the two red buoys, Wonderful.
delpeoples (55090) 2014-04-29 2:47
oooh this is a magical shot. I love the choice of the vertical frame which seems to elongate the steeple and also the vertical reflections. The colours and silvery blue light are delightful and the black frame sets them off nicely. Jeez you get around. I thought Malgo Itchy Feet was intrepid, but you're just as intrepid!
bachapi (369) 2014-05-03 12:23
Wonderful contrast and colors Ann! Nice shot.
macjake (61418) 2014-05-03 17:44
I'm sorry, i thought i had already critiqued this photo! Obviously i forgot or messed up.
this is beautiful!!
One of your best posts.
its the type of scene and photo that when i look at it I think to myself...I wish I had taken it!!! :)
what can i say that hasn't been said already.
love the dark dark blue sky at the very top, adn the 2 red balls on the bottom for balance.
its a beauty!
npecanhuk (69964) 2014-05-03 17:56
Beautiful architectural details!
Very attractive and pleasant-looking picture as well!
Sharpness, exposure, (wonderful) colors, vertical format, contrasts, black & white borders, chosen pov and, above all, composition are all excellent photo qualities!
TFS - congrats,
tatadalou (7219) 2014-05-06 12:09
Beautiful picture of these old warehouses. Lovely colours on the city. Regards,

characteristic building's facades. i like light and reflections too.
Gigidusud (18009) 2014-05-08 15:00
Splendid view on the colorful houses. Excellent POV and framing. I like the reflections on the water and the church tower which dominates also. I love it!
mkamionka (32459) 2014-05-13 14:33
beautiful presentation form Trondheim. As usually very well thought through composition. The colorful houses are the highlight. I like their unique style and lovely colors. The reflection doubles the treat with some vertical lines created which contrast with the horizontal lines of the clouds in the sky.
Excellent work, quite an exotic trip,
rigoletto (34279) 2014-05-13 14:40
hi ann. sorry for spoiling the perfect "100" but i had to! this would be a dream shot for many, especially for those who are interested in colorful houses, reflections and a ravishing light: we are at lest 51 people here :) excellent shot. the vikings would be proud.
Tigerlily (3299) 2014-06-09 2:51
This is a beautiful image, displayed in three 'layers'.. The wonderful sun light shines on the colourful buildings, the church, and the blue sky..full of colour. You do fantastic colours on your images.. that's how I remembered your images that I picked up from thumbnails..I can never produce some of the colours as you do.
swapankumarroy (2847) 2014-08-11 7:53
Very nice angle you have chosen and shoot the subject. I like this type of reflected color variation. Excellent composition, framing and good time recording.
best of all and thanks for sharing.
alvaraalto (6177) 2014-08-16 6:29
I had some good memories when I look at these colourful warehouses in Trondheim. I do have some picture of them from the non-digital period and I made 3 paintings inspired by this view.
I like this picture very much with its splendid reflections.
