A frozen landscape in summer, in Norway, in the region of Telemark, approaching Odda from South.
It is amazing how it few kilometers one can go from sea level relative warm climate to an artic landscape like this.
Even with cloudy wather (but I would say expecially with cloudy weather) these places are very fascinating.

Wonderful use of textures and contrasts and a superb wide spread of the scenery he composition is lovely and well conceived. Great impact.

Yeah, really interesting place, I think although it was summer nobody took the bath in that wather :)
TFS and greetings

Really what a coincidence, Stefano, neighbours with Nordic landscapes... I like the compo esp. that small triangle with trees on the lower left... adding life, scale and mood... Congratulations, Daniel

la Norvegia è un posto meraviglioso per i suoi paesaggi naturali, che tu con questa hai saputo cogliere perfettamente.

I like the very cold and barren northern feel to this with just a few trees standing out on the hillside. The bleak expanse of the snow-covered mountain is overwhelming. Perhaps you might think about cropping (or cloning) out the small island at the bottom right? To me it seems to disturb the composition slightly.

Ciao Stefano, bella immage, con un bel paesaggio tipicamente nordico.
ottima la struttura della foto usando la montagna innevata al posto del cielo e i piccoli alberelli provati dal vento in primo piano.

I like snow very much. And I like feel of cold in this photo, it makes me to recall my native country. Thanks.

you didn't provide the focal lenght although I would guess that this must be a high zoom with a lot of compressing effect in the landscape. I like that effect a lot! The placement of the tree at the left corner respect quite well the 1/3 rules or is it here 1/4 rule? :-))
