This is what I found in Saturday, something red from Sotra.
I love this red leafs with the piece of rock in background. Do You? Because the bad weather is coming to Bergen, all the autumn colours extinguish. Leafs felled and laying wet on the paths to nowhere. Sad and cold time coming. But I have something red from Sotra.
Yes, I love Toft. Yes, I love Sotra. My special place to admiring the ocean waves. Sometimes, like in this moment everything is in the right place and moment. Even someone at the top of rocks Admiring the waves. For a moment sun gives a little colour, straight come the wave and I was on good position to shot this scene. So, I hope you will like this picture like me. More pictures is is progress. Like always when I have nothing to post I will coming back to my trips and trying to find some beautiful, but forgotten shots. Have a nice evening everywhere around the world.
The fantastic autumn weather is now gone. Now days are grey and wet. But not so cold. After busy and tired week, today I take the trip on my love Sotra. Today is windy and this was a good time to visit again Toft. Short reminder. Not so far from Toft still exist the rests from the Wave Power Station. I do not know why this project is finished and destroy. But it is amazing place to walk and watch the ocean waves, And to watch how nature take back the terrain. It is one of my best place on Sotra. I feel good in this place. Not so difficult to reach, not so high rocks and beautiful view around. Turøy island on the left side, Ono island and many small islands on right side. And of course the open ocean straight ahead. Like I wrote it was windy today and the waves was so big and nice. Ocean was restless.
On the picture below is the view for two rock hills taken from the road. In the place where you see the wave was situated the Power Station.
I photographed this sculpture many times. It looks fine in every light, but in the night time is fantastic. Surprise for me not for the proffi photographers, without the flash light this sculpture is not visible on the picture. Ha Ha. So, I used the flash light to take this picture and I think is nice. This is another piece from Bergen closer mini series. Now in deep autumn and winter time I will visit the city more often. I like to take pictures in the dark. I am still bewitched with the city lights in the dark, especially when it is the harbour city with lot of water. The lights never sleep. In the dark season, like now, I could take the night pictures even around 6 pm. Is nice.
This is the entrance to one of many Bergen hotels. This is hotel with nice view to the old city Bergen and Bryggen. I have never been inside, but I can imagine the view. So, this is the night view. In daylight is also visible Bryggen in between the buildings. Hotel entrance sculpture.
Have a nice weekend all around the world. Greetings from Bergen
It was few days without post, everything have a reason
This reason is changing the computer. Long time I used only laptops, and now because my photography passion, I decide to bay desktop computer. Big screen was the reason. Now I could say, it was a terrible time with laptops and photos. What a big different to do something on the big screen. Everything is on pros. But it takes a long time to move everything between the machines. I was lucky because most of my pictures is on the external drive. I do this until few years ago I lost almost all with the machine accident. But even without pictures, is so many software and other important files to move. Because I made it after my daily work it takes three days. Long time. So now I am on the new machine and like I wrote it above I am so, so glad. 24 inch touch screen gives me much better possibility to work with the pictures. I hope you will see the difference. I am double lucky, in this month I change my camera and my computer.
This is the first of my pictures which I saw and made on new screen. Autumn tree in Gamlehaugen park. Now the weather in Bergen change, and is dark, wet but worm.
This is some most photographed motive from Norway. The cottages are everywhere. Many of the on seaside. In the mountains is lot of private cottages, the name in Norwegian is Hytta. For example driving through the Kvamskogen, it is festival of cottages. From small one room inside without water and sometimes even without electricity for the big, similar to the small palaces. Myrkdalen is famous ski place and around the ski roads is hundreds cottages. This are the place I do not like a lot. Driving far, in between the wild mountains, the cottages are placed not often. This one is at the end of this valley, straight before the road start climbing up. I think it looks nice with the autumn colors in backside. I hope you like it too… Mountain cottage
Probably everyone who used camera love autumn. There is no better season for taking beautiful landscape photography. This weekend I am little bit busy, cannot take any trip. I am angry, because I think about all this nice places around me, I think about the view high in the mountain. So, I am not the professional photographer, I do not earn money from this. I am only the passionate with camera and sometimes I have earn some additional money from my job. I hope next weekend will be nice and sunny. Today I present some wider view taken from Gamlehaugen park in Friday. This beautiful place always give me few minutes break. I like to stop here without reason when I drive close it. Like to see some people who have nothing else to do, just walking around park and enjoy the view. So, here it is… beautiful autumn
This is Gamlehaugen park. I showed it many times, including the Gamlehaugen palace. One of the biggest accumulation of leafy trees. In the park and along the road on opposite side. On the pictures is this road with young maple trees. The spring is beautiful in whole city, but the autumn/fall is best here. The other nice place, Nygårds Park is little bit dangerous because is the place preferred by the druggy`s. In evening time I do not feel comfortably, even if I like this place. Gamlehaugen is different, placed little bit outside the city, is quiet and nice. The area around Gamlehaugen named Paradis, is the old part of the city, where lived the richest people. When I have a lot of time to spend, I try to walk along Paradis. Many nice old houses, some are like palaces. But about the park, this is obligatory place for everyone to enjoy the most colorful and nice autumn in Bergen.
Long straight road through the beautiful valley, could you imagine something better? I love it. I like driving road like this. I have to try it in different time, when whole valley is in the sunlight. My road to the dream. Shadow road in Myrkdalen valley.
