A pleasent summer evening at Fjaerlandsfjord.

Fjærland is a village in Sogndal municipality, along the Fjærlandfjord, in Sogn og Fjordane county, Norway. The Fjærlandfjord is a branch of Sognefjorden, the longest fjord in Norway.

Fjærland was originally part of Leikanger municipality, but in 1849 it was transferred to the newly created Balestrand municipality. Then on 1 January 2000, Fjærland was transferred to Sogndal municipality.

Nearby is the glacier arm Bøyabreen (a part of the Jostedalsbreen glacier) and the Norsk Bremuseum.

The Mundal Hotel is an old wooden building in 19th century style still in business as a hotel.

Historically, the only transportation to Fjærland has been by ferry. In 1986 a highway tunnel was opened to the village of Skei to the northwest. In 1994 another highway tunnel was opened to the southeast. These tunnels now constitute the best road from a large district of Norway's west coast toward the capital, Oslo.

it's lke you laid down a big mirror and reflect whatever above it to give a beautiful symmetry, Krisof.

it's so impressive a scenery. very well captured too.


Hi Kristof,
From the calm water you can tell it must have been very nice out there, but the threatening sky tells something different!

I love this typical Norwegian landscape.
Nice composition and colors.

Bonjour Kristof,
Un POV intéressant, j'aime beaucoup cette ambiance "lourde" perdue dans le gris. On dirait qu'il n'y a pas de couleur.
Bonne journée

Hi Kristof, beautiful composition and great sharpness, excellent management of light in not easy conditions. eally I like it!
Ciao, cinzia

Hi Kristof,
Good work whith an exellent realitation.

Hi kristof,
Its great to see some other photos from Norway around the same time I was there. I think I didn't get to this town but did get real close. It looks like you had a good mix of weather as well.
You got great depth in this photo and the muted colors fit the weather perfectly.

Hi Kristof,
Great shot. Excellent sharp details with well exposed colours. Good lighting and well composed. Very well done and TFS.

Hi Kristof,

You really show Norway the way I remember it to be. I did walk to the Jostedalsbreen with my son 15 years ago already. The quiet water in the fjord, the lowhanging cloudcover and the timber houses in all colours - beautiful.

Hey there Kristof,
Nice series on Norway, it's truly a scenic land. This particular shot is quite well composed and presented.
The subdues colors and lighting really make the mood, peaceful quiet, work and the DoF gives great depth as well.
Good job,

Hi Kristof

Backlit shots are never easy, & this is a superb result. A little soft, but marvellous reflections & pastel colours, in this magnificent fjiord. Tfs!

Hi Kristof !
I find the mirror reflections in the water very appealing.
Good exposure and image clarity.

Well done. Best regards, Daniel

A beautiful scene, with crytal clear focus and shimmery reflections to add to its appeal. I like how the sky adds mood and highlights the valley and mountains in the far distance. Dynamic light and strong character. Super!

Hello Kristof,
Very beautiful composition with a lot of detail. Good sharpness, colours and lightmanagement. I like the symmetry in the reflections. The atmosphere is serene and calm, the clouds are a bit dramatic/threatening.

Good diagonal vanishing point composition. The light looks chillingly cold. I like the reflection and the clouds that balance the scene. Well seen!
