....That is exact , the village's name is A with a small dot on it , located at the very southern end of the Lofoten islands , in beautiful Norway. The road ends in the village. It is without a doubt one of the islands' most delightful villages, its huddle of old buildings rambling over a foreshore that is wedged in tight between the grey-green mountains and the surging sea are very picturesque in good weather and in good lighting . For your info the Lofoten are situated north of the Arctic Circle so you can imagine the light being present most day and night , we watched the incredible midnight sun hovering way over the horizon every night we were there in June .
Here is a partial view from the end of the village towards the north i believe , seen here is a cluster of some of the colorful fishermen' cabins surrounding the bay , these are called "rorbuer" and most are built on stilts so a boat can be moored right under or down some steps to the water , they make good photos !
Thank you for looking ,
Carol

Hi Carol,
Wonderful colors in this landscape shot with accurate sharpness and nice lighting.
Perhaps, I don't agree with the tight crop!
Nice water inlet between the dwellings with colorful boats.
I like the mountain as BG.
Nice shot!

Bonjour Carol,
Très pittoresque petit village norvégien.
La couleur des maisons fait un joli contraste avec la montagne.
Bien vu.

Tout simplement incroyable à quel point on est toujours surpris dans la vie.....Un nom de village si original...une si belle place, ça ne peut faire autrement qu`être habité par des gens spéciaux.....
Merci Carol de faire briller un bijou caché...
On en veut d'autres de cet endroit...s.v.p

Bonjour Carol,
Un bel enchevêtrement coloré de maisons originales, bien mises en perspective et qui donne envie d'aller s'asseoir sur la terrasse. Le coin d'eau avec les bateaux est explicatif de l'organisation du village et les reflets bleus dans l'eau renvoient le regard vers le ciel bleu. Beau parcours du regard dans cette composition.
Amicalement
Jean
