Bergen Harbor

Bergen HarborBryggen, Norwegian for Wharf, is a Unesco World Heritage Site in Bergen, Norway.  It was originally founded in 1070, and later became a member city of the Hanseatic League.  The old wooden business and warehouse buildings of the wharf have unfortunately burned down several times, and at one point there were plans to even completely redevelop the area with modern buildings.  The area is now restored however, with some of the burned down buildings rebuilt.  The shot above was taken at dusk with a Hoya NDX400 (9 stop) filter for a shutter speed of 272 seconds (4m32s).
