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.
There is not December mood in Bergen
Probably this is the hottest December until I am in Norway. It was only few days with temperature below zero. The whole rest days temperature is between 7 to 10 degrees, and is rainy and dark. Days are short. Long dark afternoons and evenings. I am so glad I am busy in this time. We have 30 percent chance to get a White Christmas. Crazy but real. December mood in west Norway.
Some picture taken on the beginning of December. Stavangerfjord ferry leaving Bergen in the already afternoon sun. It was around 1 pm.
Light and shadow, sun stain
From my favourite autumn place. Gamlehaugen. Sun stain on autumn trees with the amazing twins boat houses. I photographed this place many times. Almost every year. This year the Gamlehaugen palace is under reconstruction, not so nice for photography, but the park and terrain around is always beautiful. Enjoy the nice view. Now weather is so bad, so I have a nice memories from fall.
From the series Bergen closer – meat bazaar.
Long time ago it was a meat bazaar. The building is placed in the heart of the city, close to Fish Market. It is so nice building mostly photographed from the front side. This is only one fully visible side with possibility to take the photo. Because the building is long is impossible to photograph it from the street without wide angle lenses. Even with good lenses is not enough distance to make all the line straight. I was trying it many times without satisfied results. So, now I try it different way. I tried to take photo closer and along. I like it, and I am curious what you think?
This week I post irregularly. This is so busy week. Even in the weekend time I will be busy. But today I am here, this is from the series Bergen closer – Meat bazaar from the flank.
Place I like in Bergen. Villaveien
In Bergen is many places I like. Sometimes it is only small narrow street. Sometimes whole district. Some parks. Places. This is short street over the Nygårdsparken. The street have a name Villaveien because along it is few nice old villas. Probably it was a reach people district long time ago, I do not know. The houses are so nice and renovated. I was showing this houses few times, here on my blog. Even this one which I like a lot. Because is painted in black and white it reminds some ecclesiastic, sacred building. Always when I am walking on this street I wonder what was this house previously. Maybe someone who knows give some information. The buildings, villas around now belongs to the Bergen University. About this one I do not know, because when the rest was reconstructed and painted this one no. In some specific Bergen`s weather, with the dark cloudy sky it looks like taken out from horror movie. I like to be here in every time I can. The autumn season gives this place many nice colours, and it is nice, even cute scenery. So, this is the Villaveien with house I like. I hope you will like it too.
Another reason why I like walking along this place is because the tourists have no time to come here. So far from the market places.
Exactly at the gate to the park this street changing the name to Parkveien. This is short street on the other side of park with few nice small hotels.
The Weather in Bergen is not always good.
I may say it is always bad. Only sometimes, like in October this year, we have had a beautiful month almost without any one drop of rain. Now is like always. Is wet, is dark and cold. Today on morning the mountain tops around Bergen was little bit white. It is not real snow, rather rain with some snowflakes, but the winter is on the road to us. I planed some trip for tomorrow and when I checked weather report for some parts of Hordaland it shows snow in the mountain. Brrrrr. Not good time for the hiking in mountains. Tires in my car already changed. So, I have a nice memories on my pictures. Like this one below. Bergen in the middle of October with fantastic autumn colours. Have a good Friday time whenever you are now, I hope you have a better weather with you
Open museum in autumn mood, Damsgård
The museum is placed in bad place. Or maybe different. So close to the industrial zone in one side and the main road in other side. In the last year it was reconstructed. Few days ago, I had to be close this place, and because was so nice weather I take some walk around. Now it looks much better then year ago. Even the district around look better, I think people who lives close. like this place to walk. For other it does not exist. So far from the city, little bit covered with no place to park cars. Moreover, this is a big problem in Bergen. I think not only for Bergen. Is many nice places to visit along the city, but is no places to leave the cars.
So, this is now nice place to visit, Open museum in autumn mood. On the picture is only the part visible from the road, little bit inside is few nice reconstructed wood buildings, including the old shop and few more. In front is probably the old machine to draw out boats. Definitely worth to visit.
From Paradis, autumn window
Photographed around month ago on Paradis, Bergen. Nice place to walk slowly between the old houses. because old houses always collaborate with old trees, this area looks nice in autumn. It is not often, some kind of plants on the walls here in Bergen. Everything because the weather. And the weather is strong. More than half year with rain. When the rains finished the wall have to dry so fast. But in some places I could find some garages or other small buildings looking like this. This is an old garage and outbuilding. Because i like the windows and doors, I always look for it. I hope you will like this window.
And this is my picture. Autumn window
Now I am busy. Too much work and additional things. This is the reason why I posted pictures from my archive. Today, like you may see on Instagram, was so nice foggy weather on morning. Lucky who had his camera during that time. I have not.. This is the link to some collage made by @turid_elisabeth

Have a great time everywhere around the world. Greetings from beautiful Bergen
This is autumn in the park. Nygårdspark Bergen
I wrote about this place few times before. I like it, and I am completely not glad with what I saw last time. At the top of the park hill, close to the Parkveien is some construction. I do not what is it. On the other side of park main road I saw some very old trees cut down. Sad view. I hope they made a place for new trees not for some buildings. This park looks like old, and I do not understand what is going on.
So, this is the picture taken on Sunday`s walk in some old path between the old beautiful trees. And I wish myself to find this place untouched on the next walk. Autumn in the park. Nygårdspark.
