Where did you take this picture, Hans?

I took it in Norway, quite some time ago (still with the D2h). Don't know exactly where, just that the weather wasn't ... let's say ... nice.

Perhaps one of the Noggies recognizes the area (if that's at all possible).

Great images.

The thema is perhaps difficult to comprehend for me, as nature is quit orderly in my view. And of course, one tries to get always some order, as Børge mentions.

But perhaps some disorder in lighting and focus? Is it Chaos?
Contains visual disorder is as good as being filled with visual disorder.
 
I don't necessarily think of nature as always being orderly, but I do personally feel more comfortable when I'm in most natural places as compared to many, many man-made environments.  Some people have the exact opposite feelings about places.

Weather looks nice enough, ie. normal ....

My guess would be somewhere on the central mountain range of southern Norway (Hardangervidda?), but really there are very few clues to work with as the vegetation is pretty ubiquitous for the country and the landscape topology could be almost anywhere, even up North. Does not look to be on the western coast though, and likely not the eastern parts of the mountain range either.

Hans, you need to give us a little more detail as to your trip through the country.

I would certainly like to do that Bjørn, but i've checked and double checked my records (my wife) and can't find any more clues. This is unfortunate, as i'd like to remember where this is myself (to look it up on google maps). I do know there was a small town where there was this dirt road that lead to a small lake and i believe at that time (middle of august) there was a music festival going. From memory it was called something like concert at 1000 meters, but i cannot find any mention of that anywhere (which means google doesn't know it).

Very nice place, if not a bit desolate and the weather didn't cooperate. I have some pictures of a little house on the lake, i'll post that as well, perhaps that rings any bells.

Love it Fons, from first impact. Spend some time going around the many lines that sims to appear and disappear. Nice play with contrast in color, it pops like colorful lines of lights in the tarmac, they beg to be followed.

Fonses picture show IMO how well the use of compatible colors compensate for the lack of other compositional instruments. The colors bring harmony to the picture.

Fons, I agree with what Børge and Paco have said.

The image is simply beautiful.  However I can see a great deal of natural order here, in spite of the topic title, aided by your management of DOF and the placement of the in focus/out of focus elements.

Thank you Paco,  Børge, Hugh.
Natural disorder/chaos is a human concept after all ;)

I think you hit the nail there. It is all about human perspective. I´m working from that point of view right now.

That's one. Wow!

Do you have scenes of naturally occurring visual chaos?

And that's true for the initial post as well. Like it a lot! A quite attractive theme this is.

Out of order, at least
