Default Norwegian "Dragon-style"-house = old architecture.

Hello friends of architecture and specially conoissures of older style houses from around the turn of the century (the last one - you know, 1800 to 1900...)!

Following 2 of my threds in "Critiques and Techniques" - where I got some friendly respons to the shots of olderstyle houses here in Norway (mainly wooden houses) - the 2 threads being:

1 - http://forums.steves-digicams.com/cr...-backyard.html
2 - http://forums.steves-digicams.com/cr...umm-house.html

...I will follow up this series, here with some shots I got today.

Driving by this park-like area I suddendly cought a glimps of something like out of a fairy-tale. An all-white cinderella-like big house behind solid iron-fences admidst fall-colored big trees. I had to turn back and take some quick shots of this magnificent house. It wasn't easy because of the high fence, all the trees around and an akward light without any contrast , but I managed somehow to get these shots her.

And remember - this is an all wooden-house!!

Thanks for sharing these, Walter. The house was obviously designed to take full advantage of the views. And, its protected by dragons in all directions. What a fun house it must be to live in, but I wouldn't want to pay the bill when it has to be painted.

Droole droole. Oh another winner. Sort of a poor man's version of gargoyles. How about that front door entrance. No one here would think of that shape. The columns on the balconies reminds me of an Escher print I have which is one of his famous optical illusions. All in all a great place to see. Now if I email you a note can you give it to them and see if they will let you shoot the interior? hehehe
