Rainy Day Women


We have a had quite a bit of weather here today. Among other things between 50 and 60 mm of rain in six hours (and more later on). And bit of wind too.


We can't compete with the Philippines (and all my heartfelt good wishes to them), but at least the umbrellas and their female carriers had a hard day.

PS Have a nice Week-End!

What great shots, Rune!! The wind really made a mess of the umbrellas, didn't it!!! Wind and rain are great at that!! We're having rain, but no wind, fortunately! Hope you have a great weekend! Good to see you online!!

I have to say, we've had a lovely day here about 35 miles west of London; clear blue skies - sorry Norway.

Jeg må le når jeg ser de bildene. Jeg kjenner jo Bergen - og hva regn og vind gjør med oss. Tøft av deg å trosse værgudene, og resultatet ble jo veldig bra. Herlige bilder.

Å ja gjett om jeg så at det hadde regnet i Bergen da!! :O herlige bilder, og man kan se det blåser på det siste her! artig! :)og så snedig å se dem ovenifra :)

Ja Fillipinene, er er det virkelig ille!

Rain always looks particularly photogenic from a warm, dry vantage point. The lower shot really catches the power of the wind.

I like these overhead shots. Keep on clicking.

Sometimes , one has simply to admit that nature is stronger than us and our umbrellas! :o)
Have a nice week-end!

Looks like you got some winds too.

Oh no! Umbrellamageddon! I go through about 5 umbrellas each year!

You captured the rainy/windy day so very well. Your theme tied it all together -- barbara

Rune It took me a while to notice the inside out umbrella in the first shot.. well captured.

Irene said...

Kule bilder .... Fy, så utrivelig vær dere har. Egner seg vel dårlig med paraply i Bergen med så mye blåst!


Ha en fin søndag!

I like both shots, but the combinations in the first one really win me over. Mainly it's the vibrant colors of her umbrella and jacket against the grey of rain, but also the sharp focus of her and her colors against the blur of the car. The curvy sidewalk pattern, especially in rain, is also appealing, and the second girl, walking away, is a more important touch than it would seem. And overall, I find this a feel-good picture in spite of the rain. As teenage girl students used to say, I really, really, really like this.

Bergen i et nøtteskall! Regn-regn-regn og så plutselig SOL!
Artige bilder!

Oh, it does look wet indeed! We've had a bit of rain and wind too - but, like you, nothing like the Philippines.

...hate that when that happens!!!
great catches and great angles!

Sannelig ikke enkelt å berge paraplyene i sånt vær. Håper det verste har gitt seg hos dere nå. Ha en fin uke :)

Anne said...

Ha ha ha velkjent Rune :-)
