Bergen

Last year while we lived in London, a friend of ours was in an opera production in Bergen, Norway. Since we might never otherwise go there, we decided to take a long weekend to see the show they were in, plus visit Bergen and some fjords. We got a bit of rain on the fjord tour, but still saw some amazing views; the day we took the funicular up the mountain behind Bergen had lovely weather though. This was also one of my earlier outings with a new 8mm fish-eye lens, and some the experimentation turned out quite well.
