[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Forollhogna National Park consists of 1515 km2 mountain area in Central Norway.

The area is well known for the population of reindeer, and the mountain landscape is slowly rolling rather than being dramatic.

My location here is close to the tree line, which we actually can see in the mountain in the back.

And if you look closely you can see some small orange spots on the ground... they are cloudberries!

Thanks for sharing.

Un sitio verdaderamente apacible. Con una luz realmente hermosa. Muy buena la composición y muy agudos los detalles.
Un saludo, JL.

Hi Pablo. Good composition of these birch trees, which are stronly associated with these northern forests. I lie the way the view is arranged and balanced with good colours. Your trademark skies are a highlight always. Looks like a wonderful park to visit. Murray.

Such a PEACEFUL landscape.
The capture of the small white cloud above the hill was amazingly great. What timing.!!!
The horizon ... as far as the eye can see. AMAZING.
Simple yet BEAUTIFUL. Nothing "rugged or rough" Just beautiful.
Congratulations. Best regards, Mario.

Hi Pablo,
I never figured out this landscape could be from Norway.
Despite it was taken in last year's July, it looks like so colorful and green that it could be from a more near tropic place.
Excellent POV to show the lanscape, beauty blue sky and a contrasting one with the vegetation.
Very well composed the picture with the lonely tree at first plane.
Thaks to introduce me to Forollhogna park.
Congratulations and thanks for share.
My best regards,

Hello Pablo!
Love the shot, it makes me feel so warm even though outside here its so very cold!! I really like the birch trees in the foreground to the right..very nice and a beautiful field and mountains, awesome color saturation. TFS

hi pablo,

Hi Pablo, wonderful and peacefull mountain landscape with great colors and splendid light, very well done, have a nice sunday, ciao Silvio

Beautiful summer time landscape, Pablo.
The proportion of earth and sky (2/3 earth and 1/4 sky roughly) appeals to me.
Fine depth of view and soothing colours.

Hi Pablo

What a contrast to the last photo. Lovely summer colours and light. I like the subtleness of this gently rolling landscape. It looks lovely. Nice FG detail with the trees

Hi Pablo.
You have shared a surprising of the beautifulness and quality picture. I am amazed. It is work of the big artist loving and seeing fine of the Nature. Fantastic clearness and beautifulness of the colours, wonderful pictured scene and composition of the shot. How well are looked thin trees and shadow on the grass. Amazing clouds and pleasant lone of horizon. BRAVO. One of the best landscape shot which I have ever seen. My congratulations and best regards.

Salut Pablo
Ces bouleaux sur fond de ciel bleu et blanc, un peu dramatique même, nous donne cette impression de force qu'est la mère nature. Tu es un as dans la composition.
Merci et au revoir...JP

Hello Pablo,
This looks like a great place. I love National Parks, I didn't have the chance to visit some outside Quebec but I know that they are many parks across the world that looks so beautiful and wild. This is a very nice landscape with great exposure, composition, POV and DOF. The sun was shining bright that day! Well done!

Your PoV definitely makes the most of the landscape, Pablo, and your foreground is well chosen. The single cumulus cloud on the left is well placed too.
That July day is a great contrast to today's reality too, isn't it (^o^)
(And thanks for your kind comments on my "Promise of New Life")

Hello Pablo,

I really like this simple landscape photos, very clean Nicly composed and captured great colors very well done

Hi Pablo.
I like your harmonic composition.Your landscape looks very stilly and peacefully.Beautiful look over two trunks young birchs in foreground and on pine trees and fine blue sky above them.Colours are simply amazingly summery as well as lighting.
Your beautiful picture gives trust early coming better weather.Thank you behind it very much.
Best greetings Milos

Hi Pablo,
A nice landscape composition. The use of the two Birch trees in the foreground looks goo. Colors, detail, and DOF all look excellent. Summer can not come quick enough.

bonjour pablo
le filtre pl a été d'une grande aide pour obtenir ce bleu intense du ciel.
bonne lumiere egalement.

Hello Pablo,
funny how the little clouds looks over the horizon.
Lovely landssacpe you have capture here. Nice image with a good clarity. Well done.
best wishes

hello Pablo,
belle vue, bravo pour la netteté, bon contraste, rien à changer

Hello Pablo,
Great landscape picture. The pov and composition here are fantastic. Admire the way you presented this picture.

Hello Pablo,
The colors, overall exposure, and detail are great here mf. I'm not sure about the composition, but for others it may work fine. The sunlit side of the birch tree bark is slightly OE in places..IMHO :)

Hi Pablo
Very original way of photographing a birch, I like it a lot!
Nice composition, the panorama gets more strength by the stems of the trees.
Well done.
Regards, Ruud

Hello Pablo
It's nice to see green grass, trees, and blue sky. This gives me a warm fuzzy feeling and that spring is soon to appear. I love the warm colours, lighting and layout.

Hi Pablo,
How are you coping with the snowfall from last week? I hope you are still able to leave your house. I am sure that posting these summer photos will help you cope with the darkness. Wonderful fresh colors and light.

Very well composed landscape-picture with the trees at the left structuring this beautiful area. Nice sight on the hill in the back with this fluffy little cloud.I like birches a lot. They are of my favourite trees.

Hi Pablo,
a simple yet effectful composition. Just the right proportion of land and sky. The little cloud acts as an wonderful focal point, that adds nice depth to this picture. POV, colors and composition are great.

Hi pablo,

A nice image of the birch trees, of the valley and of the mountain, the photo has a good composition, DOF and nice colors. Thanks for sharing.


Peaceful photograph.... does Santa really have reindeer that fly?

Hello Pablo. This is one serene view. The two birches in the foreground against the sunny pasture looks good. The plain and slightly curve plain make excellent horizon against the beautiful sky. I like it and thanks for sharing. Best regards. Jusni

Hello Pblo,
you have the ability to see and compose what other would have overlooked. This two tree trunks would have been omitted by me and I would say there is nothing special here to shot. That is the difference.
Great shot of excellent clarity and sharpness, lighting is indeed well exploited.
