These pictures were taken on July 11th 2009. I was at the time participating in the Norwegian Chess Championship in Bergen, and had ample time to photograph these fascinating buildings. Bryggen (Norwegian for the Wharf), also known as Tyskebryggen (the German Wharf) is a series of Hanseatic commercial buildings lining the eastern side of the fjord coming into Bergen, Norway. Bryggen has since 1979 been on the UNESCO list for World Cultural Heritage sites.

Picture #1 Automatic
F-stop f/10
Exposure time 1/500
Focal length 35
Picture #2 Automatic
F-stop f/11
Exposure time 1/500
Focal length 35

These two pictures are almost identical. Picture 2 is cropped a little. On the left of the buildings you could see the old city fortress. From this angle I found the combination of the two disturbing.

Here is a link to Bryggen.
