City in the golden fog – Bergen like you've never seen it
Photographer Grim Berge had shot one hundred destinations all over the world. The most beautiful one was waiting at home.
“The text message read 'look outside now.”
Photographer Grim Berge was sitting in his Bergen home, working intensely.
He was in the middle of finishing up Natural Light Earth, a big project that had seen him and his colleagues from the production company Fram Film travelling all over the globe to film and take pictures of 100 different travel destinations.
After 500 days of travel spread out over only two years, he was now editing his raw footage – a hectic and time consuming job. But then there was this text message, the one that had him looking out his window.
“I could hardly see anything but fog.”
While some may have found this to be a perfect excuse for staying indoors, Berge jumped in his car to reach the Fløyen mountain as fast as he could, taking the electric cable car known as Fløibanen to the top.
From here, Bergen was hardly recognizable. The city had all but drowned in a massive golden fog that seemed to have no end to it.
“It counts among the most beautiful things I have ever seen. I was taken by surprise by how much the city lit up, and was reflected in, the fog.”
