[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
In Norway the evergreens are dominated by fir and pine, basically they live side by side but the pine prefer higher altitudes… and the tree line for fir is lower than for the pines.

Pine is by far the more expensive wood. While fir is used for paper production and construction of smaller houses, the pine is used for furniture and interior details.

The brownish moor tells this is late autumn, in fact in the middle of moose hunting season so I should not be there at all, a dangerous time of year in the forest!

Hello Pable,
Nice colors and composition as always. In this thick pine forest you managed to find a clear space for this lovely picture. Very well done and TFS.

Voilà une forêt où il doit faire bon se balader.
Bonne journée.

Hola Pablo, hermoso lugar, bonito Bg. y Fg. excelente luz y detalles, la hierba amarilla le da un tono cálido a la foto, me gusta. Saludos

A very pleasing image, not really sure why but I just like this shot. Maybe its the unusual combination of brown grasses and green trees. Anyway I think its well composed and presented.

great shot! nice composition and colours!

Hi pablo,
Difficult to photograph a forest.
Depth and light dispayed here...
Well done

Nice shot, you know I had no idea that fir was actually a tree, though that it was just a name for evergreen trees...oops..I learn something new everyday! Thanks!
the shot is so very nice..I like the sun shining on that big tree in the foreground and the shadows on the yellow grasses..beauiful..now get out of the woods while its hunting season!! :o)
Thanks for sharing Pablo another great photo!
Donna :o)

Hi Pablo.
Very beautiful landscape.I love pine forest,pine is my favourite.Your pine forest but looks unlike near us.Maybe it is in virtue of above sea level altitude.
I like power your noted composition with nice details and splendid colour.(The splendid colour dry grass it it is other,what near us in pine forest there is not.)Be right preexposure and supplies whole scene here autumn atmosphere.It is astonishing look at.Is only a little damage,that the pine on the right is tiny cut off :( (But it is only such my problem.).Very good and interesting your note too.
Thank you under splendid view pleasant for mine eyes.
Greetings Milos

Hi Pablo,
Spectacular colors of the evregreens here you have captured.
The colors,sharpness and details are great.
Well done.TFS

Lovely forest view, Pablo.
The slanting light creates attractive shadow patterns on the withered grass.
A fine composition with three layers of colours.

Such a contrast to the snow scenes. Wonderful light, colours and composition

Luckily I get to watch my deer in peace. The only person trying to shoot them is me with my camera. I hope you keep yourself safe

Hi Pablo.
What an artistic picture you have created. Your work reminds me famous works of great Russian landscape writers of XIX century. Amazing colour palette: perfect rich yellow tones and sun light, delicate colours of the wood and clouds. Details and composition are superb too. My compliments and TFS.

Hi Pablo,
we don't have these trees here, but I love them. I also like the brown moor, that's a beautiful contrast to the green trees and the blue sky.
Thanks and greetings

Good POV again Pablo
Good colours, sharpnes, details, light DOF and POV. Also good frame and note.
Well done Pablo


Muy buenas Pablo
Esta mañana vi tu foto y no la pude comentar, ahora con un poco más de tiempo aprovecho para comentarla, bueno la verdad es que sólo de decir que es una gran foto que tiene una gran luz y que tuviste un gran ojo al incluir el árbol del primer plano de la izquierda, seguro que sin ese árbol no sería la misma foto ya que le faltaría fuerza.
Un saludo

Hi Pablo,
Great view of this pine forest, great PoV. Neat and aesthetic picture. Make a lot of shots, but don't get shot!

Ben Lakitan

Hi Pablo,
Excellent landscape shot. Well composed and framed using the big trees as borders in your scene. Nice colors and sharp detail. Looks great!

This is another nice sharp imae Pablo, with good color and DOF. I like the sunlight and long shadows. I think in Norway the word "moose" refers to our "elk". I don't know what term you use for our "moose".???

Evelynn : )

Hello Pablo,
As I see, you take big risks to share with us your beautiful pictures; be careful! This is as always a great scenery with excellent details, POV, lightning, DOF and composition. Those autumnal colors are just great! By looking at this scene, we can almost see a moose coming out from the forest ;) Well done and TFS,

Hi Pablo,

Some friends of my wife's parents recently had some land they owned for a while logged. It made them millionaires. Wow, expensive indeed.

The tree in the foreground looks dead...;-( The meadow looks nice and overall you have composed a very nice landscape. Good eye!



Hi Pablo,
I am glad you still have some of the sunny photos in your archive. What are you going to do when you run out of them? I love the warm colors here. But what a pitty that the top of the tree is cut of the photo.

The shadow of the trees will tell the time.
Love the contrast of your captures.
Perfect balance.
Great composition & well presented,

hi pablo,

Hi Pablo,

Hi Pablo

For one more time the photographer is in the proper place to shot
TFS and see you

Hi Pablo

This is indeed a superb habitat! I'm saying habitat beacause in such beautiful and untouched places i'm sure that a lot of vertebrated and invertebrated can be found.
Also the landscape shot is great! The light falling from the side is excellent, the natural colors and tones are lovely and the details are very nice throughout the entire frame.
Very well done, my friend!

Bravo and TFS

Hi Pablo
Great shot. Nice depth of field and fantastic colours. Good detail as well.

Hi Pablo,

The golden autumn colours of grass together with the long shadows of the trees gives a nice composition, also the quiet environment care for a lovely autumn picture.

Have a nice day,

Hello Pablo,
excellent work, great colors details, are spot on the excellent use of light and exposure, FG to BG great work,

TFS Kyle

Hi Pablo,

I like the colors here. The gold tone field with the green of the trees is very appealing. Your DOF is excellent as usual and the big tree trunk on the left side gives good depth to the composition.
There was a white pine in my backyard a couple of years ago and they had to cut it down because of the electric wires. Luckily I had the opportunity to ask for the main trunk and made some planks in a saw mill for future use. They will make very nice furniture.

PC :)

stillness and open-ness in this shot yet so close to the forest.
the beatles wrote a song about this..:)
your usual sharp and well toned presentation..lighting is just right and models the trees against the ground

Hi Pablo,

By reading your note I guess you had to be careful when you where up there :-) But that didn' t keep you from making this lovely landscape photograph. I love the colours, composition and the way those shadows falling over the moore.
Very beautiful!

Greetings, Nel

Subtle but very rich, Pablo. I like the way the fg tree plays off the bg tree. I like the deep yellow of the grass, too, something I've noticed here in the fall, too. Stay warm!

Hi Pablo!
I'm always happy when you post a landscape from your country - it is always so well composed and in excellent colors and focus - like this one.

Bonjour Pablo
Félicitation pour cette superbe composition. La nettetée et le décor de ce pausage sont parfaits. les couleurs et les détails sont très bons.
Merci et au revoir...JP
Les sourires demain

A beautiful scene, very nicely composed and framed by the two close trees. It makes me feel like I want to run through that field. The only criticism I have is that you've cropped off the top of the tree on the right.

Hello Pablo,
a wonderful shot of the forest.
Great lighting and lovely colours.
The angle of incoming light is very effective and the intensity is just right. You have calculated it well.
People can copy and learn, but the patience is
very personal attribute.
Excellent composition.
