Color (3/7): Bryggen


Bergen is a scenic little city on the Southwestern coast of Norway. It is nestled between several picturesque hills on an inlet with many islands. It is simply beautiful. Bryggen is the old section of town. While it has burn down many times, it has always been restored to the original state and is quite neat. The colors here are more earthy than in the other pictures in this series, but these cute, old buildings in bright earthy tones make a beautiful impression. I like the zigzag pattern that the roofs of the houses make.

It was a bright day, and the sun was on an angle, so it wasn’t hard to set the camera to take this picture. What was difficult was getting the right angle. The main square was packed with tourists, there was a busy road, and then water. I stood on a bench to get this angle. Patience is a tool necessary in any photographer’s toolkit.
