The valleys leading into Forollhogna National Park are characterized by a number of old summer farms, the oldest among them dating as far back as 1600s.
Here we see a former summer farm now converted into a vacation and weekend place. The establishment of the national park made places like this rise in value, since the protection status prohibits building new cottages or extensive renovation of older ones.

Forollhogna National Park was established in December 2001 as the 19th national park in Norway. The total conservation area is 1514 km2, comprising a Iow-middle alpine mountain plateau in the surroundings of Mt Forollhogna. The park is situated in the northern part of Hedmark and the southern part of Sør-Trøndelag counties, where the ground is dominated by limestone sediments which create a nutrient rich soil well suited for plant growth.

Mnogo lepo mesto, pametna ideja da se sacuvaju stare farme i urede za odmor ...
Lep pogled na farmu okruzenu lepom prirodom, dobra kompozicija.
Dobro prikazano uglom i ostrinom snimka, dobar rad i mnogo lepa fotografija.
Lepo secanje na jedno proslo leto i prirodu u zelenim lepim bojama.
Prijatan dan i lep vikend koji dolazi.
Sve najbolje, pozdrav, Paja.

A fine rural scene and not a sheep in sight!
I am impressed with amount of care that is being shown to protect and preserve the history of your country and the integrity of its countryside. As caretakers, it is our job to maintain this wonderful environment for the benefit of our children, and our children's children!
The red painted farms stand out attractively against the greens of the leaves and the grasses, whilst the clouds give an interesting appearance to the blue sky.
The composition of green to blue follows the thirds rule perfectly.
Have a good w/e,

Hormon_Manyer (384) 2010-11-21 4:20
Typical red Norwegian wood houses - but I never get bored of them! Beautifully composed "farmscape" with excellent colors and lights, not to mention sharpness. I also like how you composed the cloud and the sky into the pic, and although the expo is right on the darker parts, no overexposion on the bright cloud. A masterpiece without doubt. Congrats and tfs.
Friendly regards, László
