This is about the far as I can get into Forellhogna National Park on wheels, after driving a curvy and narrow gravel road for almost 30 km. If you want to continue, trekking is the way or you can join a horseback riding tour!
What you see here is one of numerous small log cabins scattered all over the NP, many of them open for free use. Spending the night in one of these is a very special experience, during the bright Nordic summer with the wildlife close.
To catch your breakfast you go to the small river not far away, and if you have angling skills you can enjoy fresh trout fried by the riverside for your morning meal…

I am not the first visitor today but your picture is very pleasant for look at.
I enjoy every one when I see this splendid landscape without cars and without people.
Excellent captured and splendid composed.
Very well done, TFS.
Have a nice weekend.
ikeharel (56066) 2011-12-17 1:13
Red tone of late summer, Pablo, suggested look as the wild west in the USA, but really in Norway.
i see trees already with no leaves, and grey tone prevailed on.
Yet, managed a fine shot on nature, as always.
Enjoy your weekend.
vasilpro (40933) 2011-12-17 1:37
Wonderful composition, beautiful autumnal atmosphere, excellent POV, lovely light and contrast, vivid colors, very good sharpness, TfS!
Have a nice weekend, Vasilis.
aloyho (6798) 2011-12-17 1:43
As usual I like the crisp and the well saturated colours in this shot. Your inclusion of the cabin suggests human activity in the otherwise quiet and peaceful environment which is where the beauty of this scene lie.
Bluejeans (64247) 2011-12-17 2:24
Uma paisagem rica em tons dourados de outono , achei magnifico a casa de madeira com o telhado coberto de vegetação , boa luz ,parabéns!!
Um abraço Gonçalo

Orange is magic on your photo, Pablo. Like many of your photos, it is the true impressionist inspiration. Your poetic soul is always looking for such marvel. Warm regards,
ktanska (24626) 2011-12-17 2:46
What a brilliant autumn day!
Although trees are leafless, orange tones of bog hay makes this look so colourful and inviting. Abandoned looking barn is a superb main focal point and mountain background so typically Norwegian.
pierrefonds (56472) 2011-12-17 5:34
The distance between the cabin and the mountain is giving depth to the composition. The point of view is showing the details and colors of the log cabin. The afternoon light is giving nice tints to the colors. Have a nice day.
Sergiom (58734) 2011-12-17 6:05
Un cadrage parfait qui met bien en valeur cette construction particulière avec un toit de tourbe et en bois rond. Les arbres ont perdu leurs feuilles et les herbes sont jaunes comme l'automne.
kennyblack (4207) 2011-12-17 8:19
Hello Juan, still a fantastic image with its typical autumn colours highlighted. You have chosen an excellent POV and the light so well managed. Congratulations and thanks for the post.
A greeting and good wishes for the weekend ... Marino
saxo042 (37268) 2011-12-17 8:49
This is a very beautiful view and I would be very interested to see what this view looks like today! Do you have a lot of snow yet? It would also be very interesting to see a map reference and see where exactly this is. A very pleasant picture!
paololg (31448) 2011-12-17 10:07
Ciao dear Pablo,
beautiful and interesting naturalistic image, captured with a nice warm light. I read with interest your notes, and I think it's really a great experience to spend the night in one of these little wooden houses. The only problem, for us Italians, would be to have breakfast with trout instead of coffee and croissants! :-)))
Excellent shot, bravo!
Ciao, have a nice Sunday!
mvdisco (17758) 2011-12-17 11:00
A beautiful point of view and details of this autumn bog,
great landscape into Forellhogna National Park in Norway,
beautiful colors and tones with a sharp composition.
very well done.
Michel Have a nice day...
cornejo (30664) 2011-12-17 11:20
Hi Pablo, a good photo of this lovely landscape, a very nice shot with good sharpness and depth, made with good technique. A nice and good job very well done, congratulations my friend. Good night and happy Sunday. Tfs.

Hi dear Pablo,

jplebrun (21208) 2011-12-18 7:24
superbe photo automnale plein de belle couleurs et de luminosité.
francio64 (38276) 2011-12-18 13:34
belli i toni dorati del parco in contrasto con l'azzurro del cielo.
Scena che trasmette una particolare sensazione di serenità.
ChrisJ (96680) 2011-12-19 2:19
Very nice warm vs cold colour contrasts here between the blue sky & yellow red grass burnt by the frost. Excellent graphism & framing by the gaunt, leafless trees. Good sharpness & saturation. Tfs & Merry Xmas to you & your family.
clic (14742) 2011-12-19 7:42
Thanks for your kind words Pablo
Given the small hut beautifully located on a sweet spot, you weren't the first explorer to discover such appealing wilderness that offers many photographic opportunities to a keen eye!
rodgerg (55767) 2011-12-20 4:12
Very well coloued shot with the warm colort a little oranje which arise very well. The differents trees give rythm and dynamism to the view. Great depht too with the hille which arise in the BG.
pajaran (51272) 2011-12-20 6:32
Lepo mesto u nacionalnom parku sa brvnarom i jesenji trenutak ...
Dobar snimak i prikaz lepim bojama i fotografijom.
Lepo mesto u prirodi za odmor i uzivanje, moje cestitke na dobrom prikazu.
Prijatno popodne sa lepim vremenom, kod nas hladno i pada sneg.
Nice place in a national park with chalets and fall time ...
Good shot and nice color display and a photo.
Beautiful place in nature for relaxation and enjoyment, my congratulations on a good view.
Pleasant afternoon with beautiful weather, in our cold and snowy.
All the best.
UlfE (14641) 2011-12-20 9:40
Very nice photo with vibrant autumn colours. I study your photo with great interest. It is not surprising that there is a small river nearby. I have a feeling that the land is flooded in spring and that the lush but now dry grass is the result of this. I also guess that it has been pastures for domestic animals in the past. TFS and have a nice evening!
adores (36195) 2011-12-20 17:05
The landscape is really different in summer but the houses with the grass on the roof are still there:))!! I like the way you framed it between te trees. Colours and landscape are really eye catching here!
kordinator (16415) 2011-12-21 3:43
This is fantastic landscape.
Nice season colors.
Excellent presentation, lots of fine details.
Amazing composition with great depth of field.
SWEETFREEDOM (22480) 2011-12-21 4:36
beautiful landscape, nice the little log cabin on the right.
i like the autumn colors.
jmdias (54561) 2011-12-21 5:12
very nice this golden hue in the grass and the graphism of these nude trees above. I liked these details like the old barn. perfect job with light and framing. a special mood of autumn.
here another day of very hight temperatures (34 celsius), a small drought and terrible effects in the plantations
danyy (0) 2011-12-22 0:23
des couleurs très vives, fauves et automnales.
Une prise de vue très nature qui ne manque pas de profondeur, mais aussi de calme.
Un sharpen un peu trop poussé.
agulberk (3794) 2011-12-22 0:26
Wonderful composition with lovely autumn colors of grases and a cute small log cabin among trees without leaves. Excellent presentation with appropriate perspective to get sense of depth and perfect light management.
Have a good thursday
carper (96) 2011-12-22 1:06
very nice photo pablo,
a very nice and well composed shot here with a fine balance in it, good photo job.
papagolf21 (85486) 2011-12-22 1:19
Bonjour, cher ami Pablo,
Une image très réussie et qui nous apporte une bouffée du pays bien agréable.
Je te souhaite d'excellentes fêtes de fin d'année.
josepmarin (57711) 2011-12-22 2:29
the golden tones in this landscape are amazing, and give a warm effect on the ensemble of elements of the composition.
I like the contrast between the naked trees, the blue sky, and the hills in background, with the small log cabin that merges itself harmonicly with the landscape.
A beautiful work, my friend.
I wish to you and to your family a very Happy Christmas.
jlbrthnn (76037) 2011-12-22 3:37
The autumnal colors are spectacular. The hut is charming in this clearing. Excellent and pleasant composition with trees. The quality is irreproachable. Bravo.
Have a nice day
sacimar (25975) 2011-12-22 4:52
good autumn composition, I like the colors of this place, you captured the season essence perfectly, I like the image,
wolf38 (31270) 2011-12-22 6:05
Hello Pablo. Here, the autumn is at its best. The colors are fantastic, and the light is perfect. Very atmospheric. I like the photo.
I wish everyone a Merry Christmas.
gildasjan (41552) 2011-12-22 9:50
Une très bonne lumière donne beaucoup d'éclats aux couleurs complémentaires de cette image.C'est tout simplement très beau.
Charo (51210) 2011-12-22 15:03
Selv trær har ingen blader og fargen på gresset er en glødende høst.
God komposisjon og perspektiv og vakre farger
gunbud (34066) 2011-12-22 15:47
Splendid autumn colors are seen across this open filed all the way to the distant mountains and pale blue sky that contrast so brilliantly with the autumn hues.
Love the old long barn with its charming earthen roof.
Fresh trout always taste like heaven when you catch them yourself.
Nicou (120452) 2011-12-23 1:23
Avec ce toit et l'herbe quelle compo et iamge fantastiqeu ces herbes jaunies quelle vue et image fantastique compo.

Ciao Pablo, fascinating autumnal composition with lovely wooden barn, splendid light and wonderful warm colors, very well done, my friend, Merry Christmas to you and your family, ciao Silvio
Longroute (19394) 2011-12-23 9:21
Bright autumn day and brilliant photo with vivid colours! This integration between wild nature and works of man produce a sense of harmony and a neat composition where every element is at its right place.
Another pleasant shot to show!
My best wishes for the coming Season,
batalay (35369) 2011-12-23 21:38
The end of September the trees were bare and the grass a golden orange. The log cabin I see has the dirt roof that probably gives good insulation against the cold. Excellent photo as usual.
Cricri (105331) 2011-12-24 6:03
Une image bien composer et cadrer, j'aime beaucoup les couleurs et la vue au loin des montagnes
s_lush (16134) 2011-12-24 10:32
With this colorful picture, you have shown an interesting opportunity of spending the night in such a nice natural environment. The Nordic landscape, traditional architecture and wonderful vegetation look highly impressive in your picture. Excellent presentation of this picturesque place!
danos (85785) 2011-12-25 0:38
Good morning Pablo,
nice Autumn scenery with the yellowish grass to spread all over the ground with the presented small wooden cabin to be used from the visitors to pass their night under the sky of the bright Nordic Summer.I like the beauty of the National park as the contrast of the colours.
mauro61 (52623) 2011-12-25 9:17
mi piace la saturazione dell'immagine con una bella inquadratura sulla campagna.
Il punto di scatto è perfettamente scelto.
Buon Natale a te e famiglia,
serp2000 (39578) 2011-12-25 23:38
Good satureation, just a chemical colour of the grass.
It looks like a paint picture. Very nice artwork!
Happy New Year to you and your family.
I changed trip from the South Norway to North Italy. One my friend recommendeed go to your country in the summer.
See you next time!
shevchenko (19271) 2011-12-27 2:18
Good contrast in between the blue sky and golden field, nice colourful view in a sunny day, good frame to show a view that comprises a wooden house and naked branches, thanks for sharing a poetic view in autumn.
Uhu (8451) 2011-12-27 12:26
Hi Pablo, very good photo, so yellow - very Septemberish. We don't have any winter still, do you? We got storm instead, with Dam closed and ferries left outside, in the Baltic Sea, to not let deluge come to Petersburg.
skippy007 (12510) 2011-12-28 3:16
Hello Pablo, Fresh trout for lunch sounds good to me but I would not rely on my fishing skills. This is a beautiful and eye-catching image, the colour is not what I would expect, I imagined it to lush & green. I have loved these log cottages ever since you introduced me to them. Well done, trust you had a good Christmas, wishing you a happy & prosperous 2012.
Kitty_the_Wild (1169) 2011-12-29 0:51
I nice info for an adventure, if I ever come in Norway. I cannot imagine the temperature in the night, but is sure that the place deserve it...
Angshu (55407) 2011-12-31 22:43
Its a shame what we read about the deletion of your picture here. I guess some moderators take things literally on face value, the TOS & that's what spoils the mood around! I request you earnestly to come back to your routine of posting pictures, & take what had happened last year as bygones!
A nice picture this with the autumnal grass ripened & having a nice rich warm tone...possibly all wold have been covered in white by now?
Wish you & your dear ones the very best for 2012
Didi (56307) 2012-01-02 6:03
Autumn is more earlier in your country.
Nice contrast with the warm colour of the foreground and the blue sky
Best wishes for the new year.
cavli (1876) 2012-01-04 1:47
Beautiful Norwegian autumn!

John_F_Kennedy (42062) 2012-01-04 6:40
Splendid composition of this autumnal landscape. Excellent atmosphere. I also like the POV.
La_Tulipe (2798) 2012-01-11 9:21
Un tapis d'herbes d'automne couleur or que les arbres dénudés garnissent sombrement.La petite cabane au toit recouvert d'herbe se fond dans ce paysage de saison et l'arrière plan donne de la profondeur à l'image
Meilleurs voeux pour 2012
Giorgio (11279) 2012-01-21 5:33
- Pretty landscape Pablo where the autumn is already present, nice small available shack, in effect the tranquilité of night must be assured, bravo for this picture off the beaten track.
Have a nice weekend.
fabianoleite (9373) 2012-02-22 5:29
Amazing colors, especially the yellow grass. Good distance of the mountains on the background, and great patterns formed by the trees. Good work, congratulations!
Sonata11 (33225) 2012-03-22 20:57
What a lovely shot of nature and amazingly beautiful landscaping. Beautiful colors, sharpness, fantastic POV, Perfectly well done. Like it.
All the best,
foozi (7101) 2012-03-28 5:27
excellent composition of lively and powerful colors. The trees are graphically presented and the framing by the trunks are attractive.
Very exciting work in well controlled lighting.
lucasgalodoido (21051) 2012-09-17 14:39
uma imagem bem interessante essa desse local seco, e as cores quentes reforçam ainda mais essa impressão. Gostei da vista. Belo trabalho.
