I came across this old boathouse on the shores of Lake Aursunden near the border to Sweden in Central Norway…

Lake Aursunden is located in the municipality of Røros at an altitude of 690 m, is around 20 km long and covers an area of 46 km2.

The lake is populated by a variety of freshwater fish, dominated by trout, grayling and Arctic char. Traditionally there has been a commercial fishery here, to catch the raw material for the local variety “rakfisk” that is selling at US$ 50 per kilo… And believe me, rakfisk is a matter of love or hate…!

Today the area is sought after for recreational purposes, and lucky are the ones who can lay their hands on a cabin by the lakeside since building restrictions have prevented any development for ages now.

The workshop image shows a different angle on the boathouse, many will probably prefer that one where we can see over to Sweden in the background mountains…

As a curiosity I can mention that Lake Aursunden is the only location in Northern Europe where you can find the Arctic aster (Eurybia sibirica), a plant on the Red List.

Hi Pablo,
Fantastic image clarity and sharpness. Placement of objects looks very balance.... the flowering bush at the bottom corner is a bonus to anchor your main scene. Excellent work! tfs

Hi Pablo !
this is really impressive. It's amazing how we can see through the water while still being able to see the clouds reflected there :-))

Hi Pablo

Superb reflections of the blue sky light in the water, which contrast well against the yellow, sandy bottom of the lake. Tfs!

Nice composition here! Beautiful reflections. Lovely frame.


Lovely smattering of elements here Pablo,

Hi Pablo this is the best time in this area beautiful image one day i want to see you pictures on the calendar of NORSKE SKOG tfs bye Shimon

Fantastic shoot my dear friend,
great details, excellent image!!!


Hello Pablo. I like the note written about this place. It is a big lake by any standard. The image captured here is unique in a way that you have positioned the subjects like a wide landscape shot. I like the deck and its texture with the inclusion of some plant in the foreground. The water is clear with the submerged rock very well visible. Well done and I like it. Regards. Jusni

Well, it is so hard to choose which one I like best, actually I like them equally, as this one is basically a beatuiful simple image. Almost abstract in that it is the colour, shapes and pattens that are so attractive, the other in the workshop is a very lovely landscape, which has great appeal to me also. So they are two different types of art to me. Both equally attractive.
Cheers Joan

Hi Pablo,
This is a lovely composition with nice colors and excellent ferlections.Well done.TFS.

Bonjour Pablo
De beaux détails pour ce reflet très bien géré au niveau de l'exposition.
Bonne soirée.

Landscape-wise, the workshop is more descriptive but here, those laced wild flowers over the boardwalk and the blue reflects of sky compose the finesse of that picture.

Hello Pablo, I like your POV with the merest suggestion of the boat house.
Although it actually only covers a small area, your shot has lots to keep the eye busy.
Lovely colours and sharpness.
Thanks too for showing the alternative view in the w/s.

Unusual composition. I think it works as it makes us look at the small details like the flowers and the texture of the wood. I like the transition from pebbles to reflected sky.

Hello Pablo,
Lots to ponder here . . .sky and clouds reflected in the water, the bottom of the lake, seen through the water, and the texture of the planks, plants, and rocks. And I think your workshop photo deserves a post of its own!
Take care,

I love the way you captured the reflection in the water here, but you can still see the bottom of the lake when it gets closer to you.. with a lot of detail, for the bottom of the lake anyways!
well done!

Hallo Pablo,
Das Bild ist super, herrliche Farben und wunderschöne Komposition. Wundervolles, Farbenprächtiges und klares Bild,
Wir wünschen Dir und Deiner familie,alles gute und angeneme Wochenende.

I like this very simple composition where the elements are few and the eye can rest on the details and the sharp division in the water. The flower bush adds vivacity.
Good sensistivity.

This is a nice, pleasent photo. I also like the workshop image too. This elevated POV looks good as opposed to being down next to the water.

This is a feast to my visual sense Pablo. Exactly metered, the composition is exquisite. Best regards, Danilo
