Christmas Fireworks in Bergen, Norway
Thought for the day…” You will never know your limits unless you push yourself to them”
” Life is not a matter of holding good cards, but rather playing a bad hand well”.
Two photos of the Christmas fireworks in Bergen, on the west coast of Norway. About 275 000 people live in Bergen, which is the second largest city in Norway after Oslo, the capital. Shipping, oil industry and touristm are the main industries here. It is known as the city of 7 mountains, one of which was used to get the photos of the Christmas fireworks. These mountains mean that Bergen gets a lot of rain, with about 2.25m a year. In the lower part of the photo you can see the lake in the city centre from where the fireworks were launched, complete with a large Christmas tree. Fireworks are believed to have originated in China over 2000 years ago, from where 90% of all fireworks now come from. Interestingly, on New Year’s Eve in 2002 in Zurich, Switzerland, a chocolate firework was fired containing 60kg of Callier Swiss chocolates !! No such luck for the citizens of Bergen, Norway though!
ALL PHOTOS ON THIS SITE ARE AVAILABLE FOR PURCHASE.
