The Weather has Arrived

After three weeks or so of glorious sunny weather, interrupted only by the occasional flurry of snow, mostly overnight it must be said, it looks like the weather has turned for the worse.  Today is cloudy, grey and overcast so I’ll just stay in and watch the football from sunny(!!!!) Glasgow.  While I was out last week taking some shots of Bergen’s sailing ship, the Statsraad Lehmkuhl, I caught a couple of shots of the beginnings of change…

Snow
Blue skies over Vågen in the harbour area give way to snow-bearing cloud.
Ominous
Closer in it looks a bit more ominous.
Weak
The bar and restaurant here still glow white in the weak sunlight but it’s only a matter of time.

  1. Nice photos. It has been anything but spring here in Chicago. It rained off and on for 4 days. Today it snowed. It wasn’t enough to shovel. Just enough to let us know it is only spring by the calendar. Thanks for visiting and the like of my Weekly Photo Challenge post representing Change.

      1. What a pretty sea front. Do goods still come in and out by ship here?
        I love the contrast you get with dark storm clouds behind objects still lit by sunlight 🙂

          1. It’s lovely to see working ports, there’s always something to watch, and a lovely air of expectancy. I don’t know why we don’t transport more things by boat?

  2. Nice shots, all — though, the 2nd and 3rd are my favorite.

    Just out of curiosity — how big is this town … populationwise?

    1. It’s about 260,000 but the centre feels like a smaller place. Because of the geography large parts of it are strung out for miles along the coast which is backed by hills and mountains and deeply indented by bays and fjords. It sometimes feels more like a collection of villages and small towns than one city.
