The Great Belt Bridge (or "Fixed Link") links the Danish islands of Zealand and Funen across the the Great Belt straight. It is a stunning construction that makes you wonder how much effort it must have taken to build it.
On our way from Copenhagen to Skagen (photos coming soon) we just happened to be there at the right moment to see the spectacle rendered in the sky by the setting sun.
Fun fact: it was the first photo during my trip to Denmark and was taken hand-held in a strong wind at 1/3s and yet due to the ultra wide angle lens is acceptably sharp.

This is a very nice picture of the bridge! Excellent depth, light and colors....the bridge and the pierīs placing almost sucks you into the picture! And the textures and colors of the rocks is very nice too! Very Good!

Nice shot ....the sharpness & contrast of the image is quiet good ...I like the idea of using slow shutter speed on the beach to create this effect in sea waves ..
Excellent balance of color saturation & light

there are already a lot of images of this interesting bridge here but you have found a unique POV and then you were so lucky concerning the sky! Very beautiful light that creates these fantastic colors. The composition is excellent. My compliments!

You did well taking this photo hand held...good results seen here. I When I see waves breaking on the shoreline I often view the long exposure smooth water waves effect that you see in many photos. At the bottom of the frame some nice water blurred swirls I like to see. But what I really like about your capture here is the details on the distant bridge on the horizon. I believe that adds alot of depth to the composition...nicely done!!
