To get to Geiranger Fjord from Alesund it is necessary to cross by vehicular ferry to Eidsdal on the northern arm of the fjord. I have not seen any uploads from this town before so here's a shot of the boat sheds. The fjords are salt water / tidal and the yellow plant is sea weed. Going back to Alesund, I went through Hellesylt & caught a bus from there to Stranda and onwards to Alesund. Here's a location map:

Hello Chris,
An attractive well composed image with agreeable lights and natural colours. I like the sense of movement to be observed in the fast flowing waters and the well rendered textural detail to be observed in the boat sheds.

Ciao Chris, my today neighbour, lovely composition with nice houses forse boats, great POV, excellent clarity and wonderful colors, very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio

Bonjour, cher Chris,
Alors ici, c'est criant de vérité, ce ne sont pas des cabanes de pêcheurs pour touristes.
Ces hangars à bateaux semblent défier le temps avec bonheur.
Très jolie réalisation.

Bonjour Chris,

La prise de vue permet de voir les détails des cabanes. Tu as bien capturé la puissance du courant. J'apprécie la couleur de l'eau et des reflets de lumière dessus. Bonne journée.

Hello Chris ,
Interesting view of the picturesque wooden huts for the litle boats . Exquisite sharpness and attractive colors and contrats .

Colorful composition with the small village houses and the abundance of green around, Chris. Every other object is in contrast from the deep-water fjord and the yellow sea-weed, than the shade of the boat upon water - all wonderfully combined in this rural Norway scenery.
Good afternoon,

Hello Chris,
There is quite a cavalcade of colours here. I don't think the locals like the seaweed but for the photo it goes well with the dark water, grey stones, green grass and grey and red huts. The small red boat is another fine detail.
Best wishes,

  • Great

quelel vue de ces ancienne maison à bateau tout en vieux bois et la rampe qui descend dans l'eau il reste une ancienne barque et quel rendu jaune puis brillant sur le plan d'eau sueprbe effet.
Bravo et amitié

Hello Chris

I love this one:) Excellent capture from this village in the county of Møre og Romsdal. Was it taken from a boat? A nice row of old boat sheds. The colours are lovely and I like the contrast between the dark foreground and the more bright colours in the background. Also the yellow sea weed and the small, red boat (probably a Pioner) adds to the charm here. I have to add this lovely picture to my theme "My favourite foreign photos from Norway", if you don`t mind. Beautiful:) TFS.

Greetings, Erling

Dobro vece.
Lep pogled, dobar tekst ...
Dobar rad, lepo pokazane kuce za camce na obali, dobar kontrast i perspektiva, lepe boje. Lepe kuce od drveta i zeleno drvece.
Prijatno vece i mirna noc, sve najbolje u novoj nedelji koja je pocela, srecno.

Good evening.
Beautiful view, good text ...
Good work, nice house shown for boats on the coast, good contrast and perspective, beautiful color. Beautiful house of wood and green trees.
Good evening and peaceful night, all the best for the new week, which began, good luck.

Hello Chris,

These wooden huts with lovely picturesque background make it a beautiful landscape, very well exposed and perfect color saturated image, well done my friends.

my warm regards,


Hello Chris,

This is a delightfully colourful and very well composed photograph!
You have given us a strong f/g triangle from the inky, black details of the fjord, where the other features are amazingly colourful by comparison!
I like how everything is angled across the screen crisp, clear and visually informative.

My warm regards,
Bev :-)

Hi Chris
Lovely capture of a peaceful looking rural village by the fjord with good points of interest; the foreground features is attractive enough to hold the eyes to come to rest on, complemented by some bold colours to finish with. This sums up a very relaxing capture, Congrats
Best wishes

Hello Chris,
A good strong contrast between the almost black fjord water on the foreground and the different colours which we find on the rest of the image.
The yellow sea weed is perhaps a more unusual sight so far inland but you explain us that the fjords are salt water. The fresh green of the grass fields together with the little red boat and the boat shed on the right complete the colourful view.
This looks like a very calm and peaceful place to live.
Best regards, Paul

Hello Chris,
What a great photo, the small wooden sheds look so appealing, especially from this POV from the ferry. They stand out very nicely against the mainly green background. I've probably been here too when I drove from Ålesund to Geiranger, but can't remember it.

Hi Chris
Très jolie la composition de cette image, bon POV, couleurs et les reflets, magnifique présentation
Belle soirée

Hello Chris
I remembered I was in Eidsdal long ago in the analogue era. Maybe I do have some slides of the place somewhere. But certainly not of the high quality of your picture and probably also not of these boat sheds, for I can’t remember I saw them that time. But I’m taking about 40 years ago.
Excellent work, have a nice day Groet Rob

surprising these "garages for boats" in the edge of the fjords. the colors of the compo are very beautiful and I liked the intense sharpness and details we can see here.
