The Mist Rises

A few days ago we woke to a very foggy morning and I thought maybe I could get some atmospheric shots but before I could get myself moving the mist had risen although I set off for the city centre anyway.  On coming out of the two kilometre tunnel on my journey into town I discovered there was still thick fog down at sea level.  Setting out on a walk round some of Bergen’s more famous sights I caught some shots of fog around the Bergenshus Fortress area and then it began to rise as the sun came up over the surrounding hills and mountains…

The fog begins to lift as I walk around Lille Lungegårdsvatnet, the artificial lake in town.
Grieghallen
By the time I got to Grieghallen the mountains behind were crystal clear
Bryggen
As I reached the harbour area there was still a little fog in one of the glens behind.

As I wandered around the older areas of town the mist had gone to be replaced by blue skies.
