One of my grandmothers lived near a fjord in Norway, and while we were there I wondered what it would be like. The scenery is beyond beautiful, but the winters are pretty harsh.
I took these shots of houses on the Eidfjord.
That looks like an inn or hotel on the left, but I’m pretty sure the red building is a house. I learned that Norwegians paint their houses mostly red, gold or white. Red is the cheapest and white the most expensive, so it’s kind of a status symbol.
Here’s a closer look:
This tiny village might be a little too remote for me. I like having a city close by.
I do like the particular shades of red and gold used here. Can you believe their view?
And then there’s the fjord….
Great weekend, everyone. Mother Nature seems to be on a bit of a rampage these days. Puerto Rico, Mexico, the list just goes on and on. I really hope the natural disasters are done for now.
WOW – now I can see why (of all their trips) Ben loved Norway best ! Perhaps their gold and reds help diminish the dreariness of those harsh long winters. The views are spectacular.
Norway is truly stunning, Susan. I’m sure the colors help with the winters!
Loved getting the opportunity to view this unique area via your outstandingly beautiful photos.
Oh, thanks, Meg!
Stunning. But the winters must be so hard. Not even the cold but the lack of light. Like you, I need to live close or rather in a city but for a vacation . . . would be so lovely.
Oh yes, the darkness in winter…almost forgot about that. It was great having light so long in the summer, but I just couldn’t take the dark winters.
Would love to experience this myself….stunning landscapes. Thanks pearlsandprose.
Thanks for stopping by. 🙂
I would love to live there, even it’s good for me to be far from a city! The most beautiful place, I envy those living there! Most peaceful place!
It really is beautiful there, Ann.
Wow just gorgeous!
