The end

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.

Another wet spring morning

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…

Nice weekend time

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.

Nice weekend time

Spring in Bergen

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.

December mood

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.

Sun stain

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.

Meat bazaar

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. Villaveien

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.

Weather in Bergen

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

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.
