One late afternoon in July 2009 we came across this small group of heritage fishing huts located on the island of Tjörn. It is not in a location that you would just happen to find while touring. We were about to stay for 2 nights in a nearby sommar stuga (summer cottage)belonging to the family of our daugter-in-law. With a hand drawn map and a description of their cottage it took about 4 hours of searching before we found it. Many 'streets' were nothing more than 'bush tracks' without names. After finally settling in we went for a late walk and by accident came across this fabulous scene just as the light was fading quickly. There was not much time for planning the shots. I ran from vantage point to vantage point and obtained about 10 shots before it bacame too dark. Camera was hand held, image stabilisation switched on and aperture priority set. Sky darkened using gradient tool in LR3. Some dodging and burning to accentuate highlights on grasses.
"Tjörn Municipality (Tjörns kommun) is a municipality that covers the island of Tjörn in Västra Götaland County in western Sweden. Its seat is located in the town of Skärhamn.
Tjörn is the sixth largest Swedish island. It is located in the province of Bohuslän."

Hello Trevor ,
An outstanding composition in this panoramic format . The three wooden huts , are perfectly placed , but the greatest feature is the excellent light management , not so easy with this kind of poor light .

jolie vue , les contrastes et la lumière sont bien maitrisés, toutefois il manque un premier plan pour valoriser un peu plus cette image.

Thank you for sharing this beautiful place and a story behind it. I like how you captured the last moments of sunlight - the reflections on the sky and the fjord in the dusk create a sense tranquility. The composition is very attractive with the heritage huts in the foreground and the boats and islands in the background. Lovely colours, textures, and details as well.

beautiful panorama, looking a bit mysterious with this dark sky and fair shining water.
Very well done.
