This picture was taken january 2012. It shows the inner parts of Bryggen, Bergen. So far january 2013 has been quite cold, and we`ve had just a thin layer of snow. Today in Bergen it`s a lot of wind and rain. It`s nice then to have a look back to 2012, just to get a reminder of how this first month of the year also can be. In the left part we can see the Rosenkrantz tower with its origin from the 13th century.

The water was very calm that morning so that it reflected the beautiful buildings and the boats really nicely.
The picture is very colourful with lots of warm tones contrasting to the blue cold colour.
Best regards, Paul

osservando questa ed altre foto della tua gallery, mi pento sempre più di non avere visitato la tua città nel mio viaggio in Norvegia di tanti anni fa.
Mi rendo sempre più copnto che la tua è una città meravigliosa e tu la sai rendere in maniera perfetta nei suoi colori e nei riflessi delle sue acqua sia cittadine che dei fiorni che la circondano.
Spero che ci sia occasione di tornare nei paesi scandinavi. questa volta non salterò la tua città per dirigermi verso la Lapponia.
Ciao e buona domenica

J'aime beaucoup la diagonale que forme le quai dans l'image. Elle offre beaucoup de profondeur et jouit d'une luminosité exceptionnelle surtout sur ces belles maisons.

Very attractive view of this well-know harbour under a beautiful warm light. I like the angle of view and perspective resulting in a good sense of depth. The picturesque architecture of the houses makes a striking reflection in the calm waters of the harbour, giving a tranquil atmosphere to the scene. A very beautiful shot.

I've been waiting for some winter scenes from you, this one was taken a year ago so it'll have to do for now :)
this area here reminds me so much of Copenhagen and its own water views.
everything looks so crisp here.
I'll have to make this a destination point in the future.
enjoy your day

En mycket vacker dag, förmodligen en av de dagar på året som det varken blåser eller regnar i Bergen. En mycket angenäm stadsbild med fästningen i bakgrunden.
krzychu30 (8849) 2013-01-30 1:07
the sunny weather provides the most beautiful background for this scene one can imagine.The light brings out most beautiful colors and details of the architecture and let them appear so unique to us.Excellently composed and framed scene.And the reflections add a lot of charm and some kind of tranquil atmosphere to the scene.Lovely shot!I hope the good weather will back soon to Bergen my friend.
Have a nice day

I like the reflection of the houses in water, this image do me think to Ghent or Bruges with the boats and nice houses in background.
Perspective and depth are wonderful.
Excellent composition, you chose a very well angle.
Nice done, TFS.
Have a nice day,

Good evening Erling,
Smooth water surface gave a beautiful mirror effect of the waterfront houses and boats anchored along.
Light was super, and POV chosen had a fine DOF on image.
Lovely taken photo.

Une belle lumière hivernale qui met en valeur ces superbes bâtiments et leurs reflets bien saisis.
Bravo et bon week-end.

The light here is beautiful, drawing out the wonderful colours, I love the symmetry of the architecture, the scene is finished superbly by the yachts in the harbour. The reflections completes the perfect result.
Have a good week,
