Western Norway says hello

Just got myself my first Pentax (K5 II)and found my way here, Weather sealing became an obvious advantage when i took up photography, and will start (slowly) to build a lens setup that reflects the fact that it rains 200+ days a year in Bergen / Norway (where i live). So far i have been using my NEX on blue-sky days, but hopefully that will change in the days to come.

Welcome to the forum, your quite a near neighbour at only 409 miles (in a straight line), and yes it rains a fair bit here too.

Hjertelig velkommen skal du være! This place is a great resource for anything Pentax and photography in general. The K-5II and a few weather sealed lenses should be perfect for Bergen. Looking forward to seeing some pictures from the beautiful capital of the West

welkome! I always wanted to go to Norway, maybe one day.
yesterday I have discovered, totally by chance, I never heard about her before, Norway National Treasure Sissel Kyrkjebø.....
My God! she is incredible! her voice, body language and her eyes, absolutely magic.
Obviously she would be very popular in Norway, will she come to Australia?
well it might be good excuse to visit Norway
enjoy your new Pentax
kind regards

She's from @arefjord's beautiful Bergen as well. Not sure how much she tours abroad but I suppose it will be posted on these pages if she does.

yes, I did look at sissel's webpage but there is nothing about her coming to Australia and there is no way of contacting her direct....

I had my K-5 in Bergen in July and it never really rained. However, this time of year it does little else. I was conceived there, but born here in the U.S.
