This is an early morning, not far from the border. We were on our way to Norway and had chosen a different route than we normally use.
The picture was taken here and you can use the yellow man to see the view.
This type of house is very common in this part of Sweden but the red roof is apparently not original. They are normally roofed with slate tiles. But here the roof provides the red part of the picture. It was probably built around 1900.

The early morning light and understated tones are very appealing. The house with its red roof is appealing in a different way and well placed in the frame, making a good focal point.

This shot is delightful and I do believe that it owes much of its beauty and appeal to the lovely soft early morning light. The picture was obviously taken with a fairly long focal length because, judging by your map link, Google's little yellow man is straining his poor little eyes to see this house from the road!
The light is sublime and it has also given a lovely softness to the colours which are very natural indeed. Your exposure is perfect and the details and sharpness (so much more obvious in the larger version on "Beta" TE) are exquisite.
An interesting and informative note too.

Jolie composition et trčs beaux tons d'image pour cette belle photo de cette élégante maison.

The weather has created quite a sombre mood to your very well composed shot. The red roof is definitely the uplifting feature, adding warmth to that misty, grey sky.
My warm regards,

En mycket snygg vy som känns väldigt bekant fast jag nog aldrig varit just där. Hustypen är som du skriver väldigt vanlig i dessa trakter. Det grå morgonljuset har skapat fina dovt milda färger. Bra balans mellan grått och grönt.

very nice peaceful sunrise in the country. Red roof of house is fine accent in this image. Also I like the delicacy mist in BG. Well done photo.
Have a nice evening.

Une maison qui se détache bien de ce premier plan verdoyant.L'image est nette et bien exposée.C'est trčs apaisant de regarder cette demeure.

Bonsoir, cher ami Gunnar,
Une image qui ravit le regard. Cette maison bénéficie d'une architecture emplie de charme, quant ā l'environnement un pur régal.
Et puis, il y a ce ciel qui vient couronner magnifiquement l'ensemble.

Simple but elegant house,nice view of the countryside. Pleasant atmosphere in the morning hours, with still some mist.
marabu61 (5879) 2013-08-19 2:10
Normaly one would associate Sweden more with the iconic red timber houses we all know from the Astrid Lindgreen stories.
This is a pleasant rural view in a sublime light with the light mist giving it a special mood.
have a great week

Beautiful countryside and it look so green! I guess I've been living in the desert for too long. Good lighting and sharp details. Well done, tfs.
UlfE (14140) 2013-08-19 8:11
Du har verkligen fångat det nordiska ljuset i denna bild. Jag gillar kompositionen med huset placerat till vänster i bilden på 1/3 både horisontell och vertikalt. Ljuset ligger perfekt på huset. Jag förstår mycket väl att du stannade för att ta en bild. Ha en bra kväll!

A beautiful rural scene in the midst of lush green surrounding and extremely calming composition, as the illuminated white house stands out with lovely soft light shimmering thru'. It's well exposed with the subject well positioned in soft tones, the misty background and its effect add the overall serenity of the image with eye-catching combination of green and grey offering excellent overall contrast. This certainly has loads of atmosphere and credit to your seamless photo works, Wonderful!! Congrats.

You're capturing well this countryside by a good composition and excellent tone/clarity, so it's interesting and impressive to see the counryside with wide green lawn, a lovely house surrounded to trees of deep green and tasteful background. The whole is balanced and harmonized well by a good arrangement and beautiful color combinations. So, this seems to a typical peaceful counryside in Sweden.
wolf38 (29116) 2013-08-20 7:10
Hello Gunnar. To the Nordic landscape include houses with red-tiled roofs. I am surprised that is used in this area slate. The house among the trees is a beautiful sight.
Romano46 (11573) 2013-08-20 9:31
bella composizione che riflette molto bene la tranquillitā della campagna svedese.
Colori molto ben dosati, nitidezza molto buona e bello anche il formato, idoneo al soggetto.
Ciao e buona serata

Hello Gunnar, lovely early morning shot, when the nature is unfolding her beauty with beautiful colors and a magnificent stillness.
all the best

sorry I am late in your gallery but I come back with pleasure. This nice scene is especially efficient with such big presentation. It must be more than 800 pixels. Is it a new rul? have a good continuation and happy life with saxophone!
ourania (18704) 2013-08-22 7:47
a lovely place, its characteristics and colours evoke absolute tranquility. The house is very nice too and you've placed it very well in the frame filling the space on both its sides with the beautiful trees. I like very much the way you've managed the gradually strengthening morning light keeping, at the same time the effect of the mist. I also like how the light brightens the side of the house, it must make the atmosphere inside the rooms very agreeable. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a lovely day,
annjackman (15541) 2013-08-22 9:01
I thought that I had already commented on this one but it seems not. I am attracted by the soft light and grey, misty BG. The clean lines of the house contrast well the landscape. A gentle and charming image.
Kind Regards, Ann
Glint (5919) 2013-08-22 11:57
that early light as a bg to the white house works well. A pleasing and substantial house ( I always have the urge to peek in windows).Nicely composed with the house well placed.
EstudioChispa (1694) 2013-08-22 14:42
Great light, Gunnar! What is the crop here? Hay for livestock, perhaps?
macondo (18461) 2013-08-25 3:57
A lovely shot, especially when looking at the large version. The soft light of morning and the subtle colours, and the very well placed house, make this a simple delight. You've left generous amounts of lawn and sky in your square-ish crop, and I would be tempted, I think, to crop some of the grass, allowing the sky a greater proportion of the picture. But perhaps I'm just saying that because the full size photo doesn't fit vertically on my monitor screen!
Thanks a lot for the map link! Always appreciated.

A good framing with a lovely atmosphere specific for Scandinavian countries. I like the soft light. TFS!
Kielia (21533) 2013-08-30 8:23
lovely scene, so typical of Sweden. The light is very pleasant. Your POV and choice of framing work well. The house is perfectly placed and the red roof is just the icing on the cake. My compliments also for the nice notes!

Nice lights ambiance on the house with an interesting spotlight on the side
I feel a fresh quiet ambiance

Himlen ser otäckt mörk ut men det kanske blev åska den morgonen.

This morning view of a red-roofed house in the beautiful green surroundings gives a very good idea about Sweden's rural architecture and natural features of this part of the country bordering with Norway. As I could see from our travel through Scandinavia, Sweden seems to be slightly less woody land than Norway, but nothing less beautiful. Your high-quality and very aesthetic picture proves this once more. Excellent job!
