November 2013

Weather-wise November began brightly and deteriorated rapidly.  I started the month taking advantage of the good weather to go Myrdalsvatnet, which I hadn’t visited previously, before a lot of evening work gave me the opportunity to get some night shots in the city-centre.  I rounded off the month with a visit to Bergen aquarium and the Lysfesten on the last day of November…

Lysfesten
Lysfesten is the traditional end of November festival of lights in Bergen although it was a very wet festival this year.
