I seem to be ending the year on a macabre note.....

Taken in Bergen, Norway on a miserable rainy day.

Lovely rain beading on the sphere, Anne, and the figure is very well placed in a well balanced composition. This is wonderfully depressing in an oxymoron-ish way Grin

We've seen quite a lot of rain in the UK of late.... I'm off to Norway in January and I'm hoping for snow! A great composition nonetheless Anne.

You waited for a figure to enter the scene, didn't you... Smile
The weather is the same here but I haven't found an artistic way to use it.

It's chucking it down here as well today. Again. Sad
We've got a few of these balls in London too but I've no idea what they are or what they're for. Your one just doesn't fit in with the surroundings does it, and is a bit of a conundrum. Nicely illustrates the weather too. Smile

I can never figure out why the city fathers in Bergen decided to put this "gazing" ball on a nondescript street when they could have put it down by the harbour to reflect the moods of the ocean!

I depends on where you are going Ann - right now I think a lot of Norway has snow, and tonight Northern Norway is in for a humdinger snowstorm.
