Boathouses


There is an old rule of thumb in photography that says that a little bit of red in a picture can enliven anything. In this picture there is more than a little, but that is also needed considering the weather and colours of the surroundings. The Norwegian coast is crowded with such small boathouses. Some are in excellent repair, some in less. These three are at the inner end of Hindenesfjoden, an arm of Fensfjorden, some way to the north of Bergen. Fensfjorden's largest claim to fame is that it leads to Mongstad, Norway's largest oil refinery and port of exportation for oil products.
