A small river is winding its way through the mountain landscape, bordered by pine, fir and mountain birch…

This is a peaceful place to spend some time, and you can bring your angling rod if you like to supply trout for your evening meal!

The mountain areas in Central Norway are criss-crossed by rivers like this and together they represent a vast potential for recreational purposes. But they seem to be little known, as the few people I ever meet are locals that have been going here for years…

Hi Pablo
Beautiful capture of your aptly named photo. Great composition and colours.

Hello Pablo,

Yes, you are right with your title. Very nice composition. Good vertical framing with the two tall pines. Good sharpness. Very nice light and colours.

Hello Pablo,
Very peaceful. Maybe it's good there aren't a lot of tourists:-).
The trout is delicious , I guess;-). Fishing can't be a problem (hmmm).
Well done

Hej Pablo,
It does indeed look like a wonderful and peaceful place! Now that fish is getting scarce you're lucky to have access to all these lovely fishing spots! Excellent capture from a fine POV and with great DOF and in lovely colours.
Do you still have snow up there? I hope we'll soon see som spring captures from you!
TFS and best regards, Ulla

Dear Pablo,

A stunning landscape, the details and the colours are superb, one can almost smell the pine, excellent d.o.f, and the POV couldn’t be better, wonderful image, t.f.s

All the best Rick :)

Hi Pablo,
A beautiful quiet place, I like the pure blue color of the water a lot, with the rocks. With the trees all around it feel secluded. I can almost hear the insects fly.
I´ve been in Norway a while ago and also was surprised there where so few people around...
Nice clarity and compo.

Hi Pablo!

Your right, it looks like a little paradise where I would like to spend some time. It reflects a peaceful and appeasing atmospher. Your composition is very well seen: the blue river leads us to the blue sky and gives the picture a great perspective.

Kind regards

Hi Pablo

Nice to browse through your lovely gallery again my friend...it's been some time :)
This is a splendid "Pablo-classic" landscape to show the beauties of the northern habitats. This river takes the viewer towards the horizon nicely and is well composed due to the natural borders created by the trees.
Very well exposed and saturated.

Bravo, TFS and take care

Hello Pablo,

Wonderful landscape image and it really seems to be a great place to relax looking at the serenity of the surrounding.
Have been to Norway, Nord Trondelag and Borgefjell, myself twice over the last 1 1/2 year and heve seen quite a few wonderful places like this.
Beautiful composition with wonderful clarity, details, depth and color contrast.
A real joy to look at.
Excellent work. TFS!!!

Beautiful spot to relax, and photograph Pablo. Very nice composition with the stream meandering through the forest. Excellent and very inviting colour seen throughout the shot. The conifers on either side provide a very good natural frame to this peaceful looking river and that great sky.

Thanks, John

Hi Pablo,
Wonderful shot of this beautiful place and the river draws the eye into the shot. Very peaceful setting with amazing details and lovely natural colours. The sky looks fanatstic. I like the natural framing on either side. Excellent DOF, POV and composition. Kudos.

Hi Pablo,
With that blue sky, green forest and slow flowing river it must be a good place to relax. The image is well in focus. On the spot exposure. Also like the way you composed this picture.

Hi Pablo,
I'd love to be there now... I liked the well saturated natural colors, light, POV and the composition. TFS
Best wishes,

Hi Pablo!

If I figured out well the essence of this place is exactly that few people visit it; that's why it's so fine for chilling out.

You captured this mood perfectly, showing the peaceful environment with beautiful colors like the deep blue of the river, the clear sky and the wonderful greens of the local flora. Composition is very fine as well, putting all the above to a good geometry, and as an addition there's the fg rocks changing the pattern of the water for a few meters.
While making a very realistic presentation, the place still looks like a dream! TFS!

Best regards,

Hi Pablo,
This is beautiful, C'est très joli ce paysage de toute beauté. Jolies couleurs et composition , belle lumière et détails, very well done.

Hi Pablo,
Very beautiful capture! Excellent composition and great framing, very nice colours, good sharpness.

Hello Pablo,
WOW, this is beautiful a very peaceful amtosphere indeed. What a lovely place to wet a line and if they do not bite oh well, just soak in the beauty. Thank you for sharing this wonderful landscape Pablo.

hi pablo

what a beautiful landscape you captured. a cold sunny weather isn't it? the sky shine very nice.


Hi Pablo, simple fascinating composition, lovely and peaceful with fantastic colors and wonderful light, beautiful reflections, very well done, ciao Silvio

Voilà qui rappelle les belles journées d'été.
Bonne journée.

At this time of the year when the heat starts getting unbearable in our country, a landscape image like this has a very soothing effect on my mind and soul, Pablo.
The way you frame your landscapes makes you an artist with extraordinary gifts.
Nothing is out of place in this beautiful image.
Thanks for sharing it and have a great day.

Great capture with lovely contrast between the sky, the river like a lake and the forest. Well done
Best wishes,

The title should have read: "PARADISE".
You are truely a GREAT GREAT Ambassador for you beautiful country.
I could live here all year round with the greatest of ease.
Warm greetings,

Hello Pablo,

This must be the perfect place to be in the summertime. Cool (river) water, pinetrees and birchs, beautiful sky. Well composed with beautiful natural colours. The summer is coming Pablo. Thanks for sharing and best regards Bob

Hey! Pablo this looks just a bit as one of my landscapes...or at least one of my 3 styles...I like it. Of course we use similar cameras but I think we have simialr ways of seeing as well..Nicely done!

Hi pablo nice shot great landscape you show what I dont really like is that you cropped a bit too much of the water
For myself it would be better when we coulds see more of the river but
neverthe less a great shot

Hi Pablo,

The trees are a natural frame to the river. The point of view leads our eyes towards the end of the river. The light brings out the colors. the photo is clear and precise.

Hola Pablo,
Magnífico punto de vista de este lugar tan apacible y hermoso, que tú has sabido retratar con elegante composición. Saludos
José Ramón

Hallo Pablo
A most beautiful and peaceful view you have captured here. The different shapes and sizes of the rocks just visible in the water are stunning and very charismatic. I like the composition you have made with all the essentials of nature here. A lovely capture with different colours displayed in one image. Blue sky, green mountians, inviting and cool water and different shapes and sizes of green trees. It is indeed a place where one would go to relax and unwind. It is colourful and relaxing to look at. A nice and calm scenario with wide and open space and I am sure lot so fresh air to breath in. Thanks for sharing and enjoy your day.
Kind regards

Hello Pablo
You are a marvellous lucky one treading those gorgeous landscapes and making such wonderful pictures! What a beautiful place and what a fantastic shot, so sharp and clear! I do love the perspective and the reflections on the dark stream. Trouts must be delicious there.
Congratulations and thank you very much for sharing, dear friend.

Hi Pablo,

Amazing, beautifull..
Cool and colourfull..
All the best, dear friend.


Hi master Pablo,
A Place To Relax - an image to see. 1st of all it's really a peaceful, quiet place, seems like Paradise on Earth. What's even more important, You show this land to us on an excellent photo. My Xth "big congrats and tfs" to You, my dear Friend...
I think a Norwegian Touristical Agency should give serious work to You...
Best regards, László

Very calming feeling to this photograph. The colors are perfect, the composition couldn't be better. Great stuff!!!

Hi Pablo,
as you have titled this photo a place to relax,well I can see why that is so,it looks peaceful and serene.The best thing about places like this is how few people really know about them and that fact keeps them safe from undo stress and damage from too many visitors,which is good for the wildlife and plants.I see nothing that needs improving as this photo is sharp and clear with plenty of details and great colours.Thanks for a simple but attractive place photo. Bob
