Monday Morning Blues – Hålogaland Bridge, Narvik in Norway
The blues busting image today comes from my 2018 tour of Norway. The photo was snapped from the train as we rode the Iron Ore Line into Sweden.
A Year of Monday Morning Blues
Most Monday mornings a group of us take to Twitter to post a picture featuring the colour blue aimed at beating those start of week blues. Below is a gallery of some of mine from the year.

Monday Morning Blues – Lyme Regis in Dorset, UK
This weekend we ventured westwards from London to Dorset. Luckily Storm Arwen bypassed us most of the time, even though one tree did come down and block one of the central thoroughfares. This is a picture of the very nice pub that we had our lunch in on Saturday.

Monday Morning Blues – Hôtel de Ville in Nancy, France

Monday Morning Blues – Krakow Train Station in Poland

Monday Morning Blues – The Chrysler Building in New York City
I took this shot in January 2018. One of many iconic buildings in the city, it evokes the special buzz you only get when visiting the Big Apple.
