Car park #2

People parking here won't have the same problem that yesterday's drivers had!
This Tromsø car park is a series of tunnels and chambers built inside the hill / island that the town sits on. Being underground it remains at a constant temperature of +10C and leaving your car here for a while is a convenient way of removing the stubborn ice that clings to vehicles in winter.
Another advantage is that the car park was designed with handy concrete nuclear blast doors and therefore doubles up as a bomb shelter for the people of Tromsø!

Melsheia lysløpe

Norwegians have adapted to the long, dark, winter evenings and many councils provide lit cross-country ski trails called "lysløpe", like this one at Melsheia, near Stavanger.

Known and Unknown

and there are things unknown,
and in between are the doors of perception.”

Album cover

If any of those talented musicians who follow this blog ever get to be rock stars, maybe they'd ask me to design their album covers?
