Utne i Hardanger

La meg si det med en gang: Utne er et veldig lite sted, men ligger nydelig til ytterst på halvøya mellom ‘Sørfjorden’ og Hardangerfjorden. Hovednæringen er fruktdyrking, men det har også opp gjennom årene vært at fergested med relativt høy trafikk.
Dagens bilder er nok tatt på en litt annen årstid enn dagens, men bringer tanken hen på en kommende vår og et mildere drag i luften.
troltunga-munketreff-039bLet it be said from the very beginning:  Utne is a rather tiny place, beautifully located on the tip of the peninsula between the ‘Soerfjord’ and the ‘Hardanger fjord’. The main activity in this area is the production of fruits, but over many years it’s also a ferry point with a rather high traffic volume.
Today’s pictures are taken at a different time of the year than today, but it will undoubtedly set your thoughts on milder temperatures and a coming spring?
Utne er administrasjonssenteret i Ullensvang kommune, men i selve Utne bor det bare ca 160 mennesker!

The settlement of Utne is the administration center of the ‘Municipality of Ullensvang’, but  Utne itself has only a population of approximately 160 people!

Relatively steep hillsides with different fruit orchards surround the center of ‘Utne’ . . .
troltunga-munketreff-026btroltunga-munketreff-031bGårdene kan se ganske små ut, men det produseres gaanske store volum av førsteklasses frukt.
The farms may seem rather small, but they do produce rather large volumes of excellent quality  fruits.

And directly below the fruit farms lies the blue ‘Hardanger fjord’ –

Who wouldn’t wish to spend a few quiet days here – away from stress and the noise and pollutions of ‘a modern society’?
