Loyal Mail by alltelleringet Loyal Mail by alltelleringet
This is a project I've been working on for some months. I photographed the background last year in midnight from the top of a mountain as the sun was just touching the horizon before going up again around midnight with the clouds moving over the mountains like slowly flowing water. One of the most beautiful places I have been to.

I had this idea about creating a post office high up in the mountains. I like the idea of a very bureaucratic looking building that delivers the mail by hot air balloons that just flies wherever the wind takes them, I found that contrast interesting. The mountains were shot in Senja, Norway last year, the building was shot in Prague and the balloons are smaller scale models shot in studio in the same light. I bought a post horn earlier this year as well that I shot and placed on the top of the building. 

I would love to hear your thoughts about it? What is the first thing that comes to your mind when you see it?

Sometimes you have to look far and wide, and sometimes in the most unexpected places, to find something wonderful and new. And it will be worth the trouble! go out there and expand your horizons!

Great image. Re-defines the term "snail mail".

When i first saw this, it somewhat reminded me of the Accountancy Shanty from Monty Python's Meaning of life, especially that Building sailing trough a place where you wouldn't expect a building (much less a moving one ^^).

Another great picture; one of your best for me.  Makes me think of Terry Pratchett's novel, "Going Postal", even though that is set in an imaginary city.

Senja, Norway. About 600 meters up, so not that crazy high either. It was a few hour hike to get there.

Thank you! The beauty of scandinavian mountains! Because they are in the north, climate and flora is much deeper as in the alps. 600m in Scandinavia is like 2000m in the Alps!

My first thought? Well, I liked the postoffice logo before it became a Pokemon ball ;)

It's truly beautiful.

If I may come with one remark. For some reason the building don't blend with the picture the same way it does with the horn and airballons. I'm not quit sure what it is, maybe the shadows? The Norwegian mountains have many sharp details while the building is more smooth. It might be a minor adjustment, and I am just giving you my perspective.

The horn is fantastic, it stands out and really looks like it's there!

maybe, good thoughts, thanks for sharing :) I spent a lot of time on blending the light but it's tricky to get it all perfect

I know you use a long time on your pictures, so I was unsure to mention anything. I was talking of something very minor from my point of view, others might not see the same. 
Thanks for answering :)

First thing that comes to mind: Delivery by hot air balloons would probably still be more reliable than PostMord! :lol:

Jokes aside, I really love the image. It gives me a Harry Potter-ish feeling, but without the owls. Hard to explain, but really creative and a bit magical. :D

Absolut enig! Am enjoying Postmord in Denmark :lol::lol::lol: Så skønt! ;) 

And a great picture. I like the steampunk-ish play with contraire elements : ) But I thought of Terry Pratchetts Discworld instead ;D

PostNord, PostMord. Samma-samma. Okärt barn har många öknamn. ;)

Jo, dessvärre. Jag hade hellre fått post levererat av Loyal Mail. Paket med fallskärm från luftballong. Det vore nåt! ;)
Måste förresten ha varit helt fantastiskt att se utsikten från berget i verkligheten. :D
