I really like to watch the clouds on the top of mountain. Do You also?
Mountains are dangerous in every kind of weather. Mountain are for the people with imagination. Norwegian mountains are not so high. The highest one is only 2469 m. But in combination with the specific west Norwegian weather gives unforgettable views. Mostly cloudy and wet weather with the clouds wrapped around tops shows the mountain power. Blue and clean sky is so bored, but walking through the mountains and hills and watching the always changing views is big pleasure. For me of course. I love it. I love the mountain power. The picture below was taken in Gudvangen on the last trip. It was taken from the bottom of the Gudvangen valley.
I hope you will like both of them, the color and black and white.
Have a nice Sunday…
Viking village under construction before the season.
Like I wrote it last time, here comes the next tourist attraction – Viking village replica. Now before the season it is under construction. But I love the view on the Gudvangen valley from this side. Many season signs on this one picture. Snow on the top of mountain, construction in the middle of the valley and colorful kayak rental square almost ready for the visitors. On this picture and on the one from last post I love the color element which break the view.
So, enjoy the next nice view from Gudvangen under construction before the season.
Visiting Gudvangen is always pleasure.
It was a nice, sunny and warm second day of Easter. But is still dangerous to visit some place in Norway, even here in Hordaland. Better do not try before middle of May. Fortunately Aurland is places close to the main road and is available whole year. It is one of the place I like to visit.
It is a small village, where people change the tour buses to cruise ships to enjoy the beauty of Nærøyfjorden. One of the most beautiful place on Earth. Probably the local government want to keep the people little bit longer, they decide to build some replica of Viking village. It will be nice, but now it is under construction. I am not sure when it will be available. I think it is good idea. It was so sad to watch on this village, which looks like abandoned and the biggest and living place was the big parking for the tour buses.
Another attraction is Kayak rental. I will try this summer to rent the kayak and enjoy the beauty fjord by myself. Visiting Gudvangen is always big pleasure for me.
Like you may see on the picture below, there is still lot of snow in the mountain.
After very busy week now the Easter time
Spring is late this year. Winter time was nice in Bergen, almost without any snow, with nice temperatures. Spring has come with rain, snow fog and cold. I had a busy time the last two weeks. Now the proper lazy time. A few books waiting on the shelf. The forecast showing rain and light rain til Monday afternoon. So, let it happen…. Easter time.
Below I present some old picture, from one early morning walk. I like it, this is not a rare view here in Bergen. When the rain falling almost every day. It looks sad, and I like sad things.
Do you feel it the same way.
Not good feeling for the Easter time? Do not take it so close, it is just the picture.
All things are passing… The end
This is another shot from the wet foggy morning near my home. Many of you probably remember my previous shot from this place. It was also foggy day and the lake was frozen around this small boat. Now few mounts later this boat is sunk. So, I think it gives something nice to the composition on this picture. All things are passing… This is the end of some forgotten boat. But I am full of sorrow.
It was just another wet spring morning today.
The spring is lazy. Like I see on other pictures, in continental Europe is already spring time. Here in west Scandinavia is different. The beginning was snowy. Almost whole winter was without snow, the spring comes with some. Rainy, cloudy, snowy. The nature around slowly changing the colors.
Today`s morning was foggy. Because I like taking pictures in the foggy time, I was take some walk around Storavatnet lake. Silent around. Only the water drops falling down. Nice scenery to begin the new photographic season. Another wet spring morning.
Probably like everyone else, on the beginning I took pictures like crazy. I photographed everything around. My hard disc space was full of RAW file never used. So, this winter time I reserved time for myself to browse it all and delete almost everything. Difficult decision. Now I have a lot of space for the new pictures. And now I try to take a look around and find the best moment and best view and take just one or two pictures instead 20 or 30.
And here is one from this morning. I like the stone in the foreground, and the fog in background. I hope You will like it too.
Have a nice time, tomorrow is Monday again…
It was a good Saturday, it was a nice weekend time.
A long walk to the top of one from seven Bergen`s mountains. This was a Rundemanen. The top is at 568 meters. The road to the top was built in 1912. It is less popular than the lowest Fløen top, but is in the same massif and including many walking path to the other tops. The road leads along the two big drinking water reservoirs. Most of the road is without any spectacular views. This is on the top. The view 360 degrees around for every part of the city and the landscape around. I wrote most, but not the whole. View on the two reservoirs are beauty. And the road gives possibility to watch on it from different directions. From the half of this road is also beautiful view on the highest top Ulriken from the back side. Below I present it on the picture. I like the sky above, and you? It was a long nice walk and nice weekend time.
This post I wrote two weeks ago, but I had no time to post it. This view below shows how looks the firs few days of spring here in Bergen. Cold, lot of rain and snow. The highest part of surrounding mountains was white. Brrrrr. Still is little bit cold and wet but better then the last two weeks.
Already long time since I post last time. I hope to do it more frequently now on spring time. The landscape around looks better.
From yesterday walk, spring in Bergen
Picture taken on the walk through the Sotra. When I start my walk was sunny, nice and warm. Along the walk up to the hills weather change to the really winter., with few centimetres of snow. At the end spring was back. On the picture, the same clouds which bring the snow visible over Bergen. I love to watch the wild sky. Spring in Bergen.
The old stone dam in Alvøen.
Another one picture from early morning walk in Alvøen. Like I wrote, I like this place. The old stone dam protect Alvøen Factory. I am not sure about all the function, but when I watch on the construction, it looks like it could have been also the small power station. It is partially integrated with the factory buildings. However, it looks nice in the morning light. It looks fine for me because I like the old stone constructions. During the summer time the small reservoir is out of water. Only now and in the wet fall there is a little bit water. Welcome in Alvøen.
Is just the winter morning sun in Alvøen.
The small Alvøen is just one of the place which I like. Probably because it looks like the place where time still stand. Too small and without any free place to build something new, I like the small old park around the old palace. I like the quiet marina. Small and nice. I like to be here. And this morning when I walked without any direction I fount this view between the alley of old tree on the old building. Looks nice in the winter sun. What do you think? Winter morning sun in Alvøen.
