January in Bergen


We have had a somewhat special winter here: Almost no snow, a mixture of rain and wind, or sun and no wind. And from time to time a magical, low light. So it is tempting to post a postcard :-)

Oh, how beautiful it is indeed! And it would make a terrific postcard, Rune! It does sound as though you've had a good winter -- hope it continues!!

Nydelig, og solen skinner

Bergen looking busy, a lot less snow than when we were there over a year ago on the way to North Cape.

Please promise me to never resist to the kind of temptation!
This light is beautiful, meanwhile, I'm wondering if all those strange new winters are normal?..

Flott bilde. Bodde ikke langt unna dette motivet da jeg var i Bergen i høst!

Her har det vært nesten ikkeno snø, kaldt og mye vind.
I dag -8 og skikkelig blåst. Ikke bra!
Ha en flott ukestart!

Her er en hilsen fra snøhæl...... jeg kan godt gi avkall på snøen om jeg fikk se sola! Flott bilde, Rune!

Og god uke til deg!

Winter sun is something special. I love the large number of boats.

I love your postcards, as you call them. I'd missed them! p.s Maybe America got all your snow ...

Becky Jerdee said...

So much color! Quite unexpected...must be because of the light!

All the snow, wind, and cold temps are here in the US! Love the golden reflection on the water.

Thank you for your postcard! There's certainly a contrast of age reading left to right across your photograph. Our weather has been very similar, hope you don't mind us sending on all the rain we can't absorb ourselves.

Beautiful light, beautiful Bergen!

And what a fine postcard it is. I'm guessing you feel lucky to live there--and no wonder.

Mandy Southgate said...

Wow, that light is really beautiful! We have had similar days in Kent - days where the shadows are so long but the skies are blue and the sun is bright and you could almost mistake it for 9pm on a summer evening.

Petra said...

Those vibrant colours and golden tint add charisma to the scene which is beautiful itself. Feel tempted at will to post such postcards, I'm looking forward to enjoying them! :)

Beautiful photo!

The water looks so wonderfully shiny! Bergen must have a very busy harbour.

Supert lys og flott vannspeiling :) Bergen er en fotogen by :)

Well done!!! I love Norway very much.
Wish you a nice weekend.

All your photos are like postcards. Last week I returned from a six weeks' stay in sweltering Australia to a not-so-cold Netherlands. We had had no snow either, every day rain or wind.
Have a great week!
Wil.

great sky - not a lot of snow here either yet but lots of rain.
