Houses in the city of Bergen, Norway.
I was always surprised by how houses are colorfull in Northern Europe. I think it is to compensate the lack of light for many months of the years.

A beautiful view.I like the many details one can detect in this colourful and intriguing photo. I think it was taken from mount "Aksla"?
Greetings from wet and cold Germany!
PS. I do not post photos for 7 days - I'm on strike. Please read in the forum about "Polonaises" deleted account. I think these absolutistic TE moderators behave like children ...

A very interesting and beautiful arrangement of these "model houses". This looks almost like a cubistic painting. Very good emphezise on the colours.

You are right, colorful houses are a specificity of North Europe. It is well illustrated here with both the colors on the walls and on the roof which are providing a nice graphical picture.

Hello Stefano, really beautiful and eye-catching even from the thumbnail. I think, these colourful houses bring some energy to the grey and cold atmosphere of Bergen.
Kind regards, Tolga

Composizione unica, quella dell'alternarsi dei tetti delle case di queste cittadine delNord Europa.
Ne sono rimasto colpito anche io, come te, ed ho pensato la stessa cosa: quei colori così intensi rendono la vita "al buio" più allegra e vivibile.
Un caro saluto

Non posso non soffermarmi su questa foto, per tre ragioni principali. Conservo bellissime memorie di Berghen, mi piacciono i tetti visti dall'alto, è una bella composizione.
Ciao e auguri per le feste,

What a great view, I passed through Bergen in 1976, I'd forgotten what a wonderful looking city it is.
You have captured the colours and atmosphere perfectly with this excellent POV and composition.
Very well done, an amazingly sharp image.

Potrebbe anche sembrare un plastico... La città è talmente pulita da cavi, antenne, insegne, pubblicità, bandiere.
Strana ma molto bella.

Saluti da Brasile,

Another example of your creativity in finding new and interesting motives; this is not the most obvious part of Bergen to photograph. I think I know exactly where you stood to capture this one. A fine cut, well composed with the small road braking up the cluster of houses coming in from the corner. Yes the colours are amazing when we see it like this. Thanks for sharing this:)
Best regards, Erling
