The Sohlbergplassen Viewpoint in Norway

The Norwegian painter Harald Sohlberg (1869-1935) stayed in the Rondane mountain area for several years to do studies for his most famous work Winter Night in the Mountains. The motif was a summation of sketches from several standpoints. The most recognisable position was close to where the viewpoint platform by Carl-Viggo Hølmebakk is built today. Although normally you maybe wouldn’t think of concrete as the perfect material for building a platform in the woods, this structure with its flowing, organic shape I think blends in very nicely between the trees and has found a good place for itself.
