at home in the north..

at home.. in the north..
no more time to hesitate..

I’m yours.. ;))

"Well open up your mind and see like me
Open up your plans and damn you’re free
Look into your heart and you’ll find love love love love
Listen to the music of the moment people dance and sing
We’re just one big family
It’s your God-forsaken right to be loved.. love love love love
So i won’t hesitate no more, no more
It cannot wait I’m sure
There’s no need to complicate
Our time is short
This is our fate, I’m yours"

Å.. a wonderful and unic little village!

Comments and critics are welcome

PS electric lines at Lofoten run all in the air..
It’s my taste to not alterate the original view cloning out them..

Ciao Marco,
Superb scenery!! They are lucky the people who live in this house. At all morning they view this beautiful view. Great natural colors, it's look like a postcard :)) Good job. Have a nice week-end.

Hello Marco. Wonderful idyllic shot, excellent colours. We admire your decision not to clone out the electric lines, it's not always good to swim with the tide. Thanks for sharing.

Regards Phil.

HI Marco
Lovely scenery, I do wonder about the reflection of the house, the fence is reflecting where it should while the house is quite far to have a reflection.That house looks placed at about the same distant as mine from the water and at no time of day do we get a reflection.
Apart from that its good and as a fantasy its great.

Hi Marco,
Perfect sight of amazing landscape.
Perfect sharpness and brillant colors.
Exciting image...

Hi Marco,
An inspiring landscape looking like "Ma cabane au Canada"! I like the composition which lets the glance follow the river!
The colors are so vivid and the air must be so refreshing there!

Boa noite Marco
I try always to say what I feel when i open tumbnail. I use to wrote what I feel about the photo and the emotions i capture in that moment. If i am sweet is because the photo, for me, deserve it.A photo can be beautiful but I don´t feel anything...so i just say beautiful.

No please, don't complicate

Your photos are more than beautiful... . There is joy, sadness... there are always feelings...

Very beautiful and peaceful Marco. Very beautiful greens and blues throughout the scene. My mother would have loved to paint this scene. I bet the food is delicious here too.

hi Marco

Truly wonderful landscape captured nicely through your POV here, and it is really a place to call home. This single house facing the river and backed by mountains behind, is what we call good 'fengshui'.

Great composition to show the river and some reflection on the water. No, I never mind about wires. A fine post on Norway.

tfs, bill

Wonderful light and colors my friend!
Well done.

i thought it was your home.. :) beautiful place you went for a vacation, Marco.. stunning view of the mountain at the bg.. and pleasent view at front with the little house, river and rocks.. good one.. tfs.. Have a good weekend.

regards, terry
*even without opening the link i know the song by Jason Mraz.. :)

So nice landscape with bright colours. I have just remove the electric cable (workshop).

Hi Marco,

This place looks wonderful, so far for the "real world". Excellent composed image along the rive, also great colors and reflections. Thanks for sharing with us this beautiful image.
Best regards,

Ciao Marco.
Yes, Norway as is.!
Good memories on it.
Lovely and very well captured landscape overview here.
One thing. why not cloned out the electric cable ?
Have a sunny weekend.

Hi Marco,
If I lived in a place like this I would never want to leave. I love the scenic view of the river and the mountains. I like your composition here and the reflections on the water are nice as well. Nice work Marco.

Hi Marco,
perhaps it may be severe winter there, but now it is "cozy" view in summer. this contrast makes its "at home" feeling you captured.
you succeed to express compactly its clear blue on the water, its cool air and vivid red/white house beside the shore...(electric wire maybe unnecessary)
I wish to look up the original blue sky there and breathe it.
thank you,

great shot friend

Bonjour Marco
Un délicieux paysage avec un excellent cadrage de la maison et de son reflet.
Bonne journée

You know I think I know where you are standing here!
Just before you enter a little tunnel and the end of the road and a huge parking space and it is at the right side of the road.
Here we turned left to reach our rorbu.

It is quiant and beautiful indeed!

TFS and reminding,


What a beautiful landscape and colors
I imagine so peacefull place when I m driving in Moscow trafic!
Very nice

What an inspiring looking place Marco.
Great POV and placement of elements.
Love the way the mountain flows from
the upper right to lower left.
Excellent shot.
- Vincent

Good morning, good morning! :)
What a great place, Marco! I looks so serene and quiet. No worries, no stress, just yourself and the water whispering to the mountain... Why do you call this place "home" ? Were you born here...does this place make you feel at home?

Spectacular landscape Marco!
Framing the river with the house and the trees adds to the eye catching, and drawing, feel of the perspective created by the wide, 18mm, focal length.
Great DoF and light/color as well.
Very effective composition, and a beautiful image and scene as well.

Hello Marco,
This scene reminds me of growing up in Canada.
Well composd with great lighting and colours.
A bucolic looking scene to be sure.

thanks a lot for your explanation.

Ciao Marco,
spesso mi capita di sfogliare gallerie di amici senza trovare il benchè minimo spunto per un commento. Da te (e credimi non è una sviolinata) è esattamente l'opposto, non si sa da dove incominciare, talmente belle e ben composte sono le tue immagini.
Come in questo caso in cui hai reso il paesaggio spettacolare, nitido, luminoso e profondo. Bravissimo.
Un carissimo saluto

a piece of heaven with no doubt!

many thanks and have a wonderful evening Marco

Ciao Marco. Il taglio diagonale conferisce una buona profondità e una gradevole luce esalta i colori di quest'angolo da fiaba.
