Bergen #3 - Løvstakken, Blåmanen, Rundemanen

Photos from 2 more walks around Bergen. The first walk was to Løvstakken on a warm but cloudy evening, the last of the warm days for a little while. Lots of people enjoying the mountain and the nice warm weather. The second walk was a couple of days later, up Fløyfjellet, Blåmanen and Rundemanen and down the steep steps of Stoltzekleiven. It was considerably colder that day - I even wished I had my woolen hat with me - and there were therefore very few people around once I got up on the mountain ridge; I did see a ring ouzel (Turdus torquatus, beflijster) which I haven't seen for years. I was just a bit too slow to get back and got surprised by a thunderstorm and heavy rain in the last half hour through town. Nice to see and hear lightning and thunder though, we hardly ever get any in Tromsø.
