Weekend Photo Upload 4: Oslo port - Norway

I posted some collage pics of Myrdal, a small city of Norway last weekend, and I am glad most of the viewers liked it. I took the trip to Norway 2 years back but still cherish the memories of that trip.
Here go some original shots of the sky in Port of Oslo, in April. Norway is known as “Land of midnight Sun”; so even in April, the light remains quite late in the day. The sky was very colourful, may not be like Aurora Borealis usually happens in winter, but it was captivating.
The series of lights in the port mesmerized me. So I didn’t miss to take the snap. Next to the port the famous Nobel peace Hall is situated, where the peace award is given. I will post the pics of that hall next week.

@Kalyan. Thanks. I was capturing street lights everywhere in Scandinavia, and will soon post on this topic.

Am I late ? Well, I am in the middle of two trips, trying to hop into some blogs.

Beautiful pictures to cherish but I somehow feel your pictures are a little bit more colourful than they should have been.
Are you playing with them?

@Cuckoo, No these are original ones :-) Thats the speciality of the skies of Norway.
I have recently started playing with aperture and shutter speed, where I can control the amount of light to be entered. So it also changes the look and feel. And normally any pic with DSLR comes bit more bright and colourful.
Thanks for coming here, inspite of busy schedule. You are not late, You can come anytime.

Very beautiful pictures. People in Norway must be really lucky to have sights as these, the skies are vibrant with colors. I'd agree with stacy: the first one indeed deserves to be first.
