Some more pictures from our recent trip to Norway

Those Northern Lights

Posted: December 23, 2021 in Norway

One of the main reasons for us going to Norway was to see the Northern Lights, We were fortunate to see them on 4 occasions during our cruise, the last of which was definitely the best. It is odd that they seem far more coloured in the photos than they do to the eye (this was explained to us as being due to the differences in the way the two lens collect and process light).

A fantastic sight!

Norway’s coastal towns

Posted: December 14, 2021 in Norway

One of the problems with visiting Norway at this time of year is the light. In the very north, the sun never rose above the horizon and so it was difficult to appreciate the best of the towns which we visited – Bergen, Alesund, Trondheim, Bodo, Tromso, and a number of other smaller ports. So much so that Sue and I have resolved to return and redo the cruise in the summer, when we can fully explore these lovely places.

Sue and I are just back from a cruise from Bergen to Kirkenes along the Norweigan coast. The scenery was stunning!
