Night Time

A few days ago I figured it was time for night shots of Bergen, now that it's getting darker early in the evenings as the year draws to a close.  I took a trip to the Løvstien footpath which goes along the side of Mount Løvstakken and overlooks the valley of central Bergen, to get … Continue reading Night Time

Autumn in Bergen

This year we have some reasonably good autumn colours in Bergen, although the weather hasn't been good for photography of late.  On one or two of the decent days I have been able to get out and get some shots of nature's most glorious season...

Summer Weather

For the last couple of weeks Bergen has been bathed in some rare but very welcome sunshine.  The temperatures have risen above 30C on occasion and there has been barely any rain for nearly a month - surely some sort of record in this part of the world.  The fantastic summer weather has meant we've … Continue reading Summer Weather

A Brief Trip Away

I was recently lucky enough to get my annual May trip away from Bergen and left for a quick visit to the beautiful city of Prague in Czechia with side-trips to Bratislava, Slovakia and Vienna, Austria thrown in for good measure.  As usual a hectic trip but a great one.  The following are a few … Continue reading A Brief Trip Away

A Trip to Sotra

A few days ago we decided to head out for  trip to Sotra and some of the other island which form a large archipeligo just off the coast of Bergen.  Although the day was overcast and grey for the most part we still managed to get some decent shots of the multitude of islands, fjords, … Continue reading A Trip to Sotra

Following on from the last post which we hoped would herald the end of winter, we've just had another cold spell yesterday with more snow as this seemingly never-ending winter drags on.  In between, though, we managed a few days of sunshine, albeit still very cold, which we hoped would maybe presage the start of … Continue reading A Brief Interlude

A Visit to Skansen

A couple of days ago we paid a visit to the Skansen area of Bergen.  Situated just behind the lower Fløybanen station this is an area of charming narrow streets leading up to the Skansedammen with its old wooden fire station.  Perched on a small flat area overlooking central Bergen, this prominent building and its … Continue reading A Visit to Skansen

Bergen by Night

Now that winter is more or less with us we can expect the unexpected as far as the weather is concerned in Bergen.  Some years we have lots of snow, some years virtually none.  That remains to be seen this coming season, but last night was rain and cloud free, though very cold, but it … Continue reading Bergen by Night
