Photographer's Note

This photo was taken from the top of Mt. Floyen looking toward the dock where the Jewel of the Sea was docked. The day gave us mixed sun and clouds, lighting depended on timing.
Bergen was founded in 1070 by King Olav Kyrre. The town was favorably situated in relation to shipping traffic and was for a long time the country’s most important commercial, shipping and industrial town. Moreover, Bergen became a commercial and shipping town of European significance and for a while, during the Middle Ages, Bergen was also the largest of all the towns in the Nordic countries. Bergen is the only town in the whole of Scandinavia which has followed a classical European pattern of development. (Bergen-Guide)
