This is a harbour scene from Bergen captured february last year. So far this year we`ve only had a few days with weather like this, only rain, rain, rain and wind. This winter we only had one day with snow, early in december. The ship is the same ship that is depicted in my previous post: 20, 40, 60...
The name of the ship: Solfjord means sunny fjord translated into English. Let`s hope for more days like this. In the background you can see the church Nykirken, located at the Nordnes peninsula.
Thanks for watching.

Good evening Erling,
A perfect reflection of the big ship, under favorable daylight over the Bergen harbour.
Well chosen the askewed angle upon, and good DOF till far side waterfront buildings, which also mirror on the smooth surface.
Pleasent view to look at.

Not only a sunny day but also one with very little wind, witnessing the clear reflections in the harbor water.
Also the beautiful buildings at the other side are well reflected.
The blue-red-white combination on the picture is wonderful.
Best regards, Paul

Ett passande namn på det här fartyget, här skiner verkligen solen vackert över fjorden. Vackra reflexer i det otroligt lugna vattnet. De fina färgerna på båten höjer också värdet på bilden. Bergen är ju verkligen känt för det ständiga regnandet men den här dagen tycks vara ett undantag. Det var också den enda dagen jag själv har varit i Bergen, 16 maj för två år sedan. Det var också en dag med otroligt vackert väder. Vi promenerade förbi kyrkan i bakgrunden.
Hälsningar från ett regnigt Göteborg

yes, lets hope for more days like this for sure.
I always find it strange how in these reflection photos, that the reflection is often better exposed than the real subject.
same here...the reflection is perfect. while the actual boat in the red section is over exposed.
I get the same result too!
love the way the ship takes ownership of the frame, its powerful and dominating.
Sorry we couldn't make it to Bergen this year! :(

it´s a great complement to one of your previous shots(20,40,60).
I love different kind of reflections and seeing this one I´m speechless.It´s absolutely stunning.The smooth water surface provides us with truly exceptional and clear reflections.
Another thing I enjoy here is your perspective and angle,which makes the bow of the ship takes on a 3D look.
Have a nice evening

The reflections in the sea are quite impressive and wonderful ! I especially appreciate how sharp the boat's name appears in the water. Yet, I wonder wether it was possible not to cut the boat's highest part... but I guess it was not easy to keep it entire, with such a size !
Have a nice evening,

fantastiskt Februari väder, perfekt för en tur med kameran:) Jag brukar vara i Bergen ibland och gillar det jag har sett(jag har faktiskt haft tur med vädret flera gånger också)
Fin bild med vackra blå färgtoner och ljus, riktigt skarpa reflexer i vattnet också. Snyggt!

Ton grand angle donne une vision très originale de ce bateau visiblement vide de toute cargaison. Beau reflet offert par cette belle journée sans vent.

Not alone Norway but also Belgium got the most soft winter in hundred year, no day snow, one day with minus degree Celsius, almost not to believe
I am now out with my PC in the sun with twenty Celsius, but maybe the last day according to the weather forecast
Lovely view about the harbor and excellent reflections
Perfect perspective and depth picture be superb.
Very well captured, also nice presentation. TFS.

Hello Erling _ I have to say that the weather depicted here is not what I expect from your part of the world at this time of year. A clear sunny day which brings out the blue sky and deep blue reflections on the water very nicely. The simple colour palette of red, white and blue is attractive an harmonious.
Hope all is well,
with warm regards

A lovely harbor shot, Erling, and hopefully the weather here is a harbinger of things to come for you. Our winter finally broke a bit today, with the temperature rising all the way to 50 degrees F (10 C), the highest it's been all year - sadly it will be back down below freezing again on Monday...
The perspective here is wonderful, as is the reflection, which in the dark water is almost ghost-like. It reminds me of a great shot I saw recently, a promotional photo for the QEII cruise ship in which the photographer convinced the captain to stand on the lower bow of the ship, just above the water line (here's the shot). This ship must be emtpied of cargo given how high it sits in the water here!

We have just come back from Bergen and the Hurtigruten trip back to harbour on Friday was in beautiful sunshine. I like your viewpoint and framing very much so that the reflection is clearly showing. Lovely colours - very well taken.
Kind Regards, Ann

What a nice capture with this beautiful mirroring effect.
A good sample for contemporary art photography.
TFS and best regards
