This is the Farö Bridge that leads the road E47 to Rödby. There you can take the ferry to Puttgarden in Germany and this is where all Scandinavians go to buy beer and other beverages. The price in Germany is so much lower than in Scandinavia, all cars coming back are fully loaded with drinkable stuff.

Nice perspective and a good composition. The little story about the bridge is also very amusing! Do you know if it is the same architect that has made the new bridge somewhere between gothenburg and oslo? it looks similar anyway...

..hmm.. Interesting to see this view of this bridge Gunnar. A place I often pass but never took time to stop there. The trailer at right makes a fine and typical colour dot of passing cars at this bridge. tfs

Nice composition from this angle. The yellow truck obviously makes the picture brighter, and I also like the clouds above the bridge.

A very good shot, The low viewpoint shows off the line of the bridge well, and makes for a satisfying composition.
Excellent sky and clouds too, not always easy to capture with digital.
I think I might be tempted to crop away some of the grass at the bottom.

Very nice view of this bridge that I passed quite a lot of times coming from the ferry in Rødby and driving to Copenhagen. The POV is good and I like the clouds in the background. Well done!

I'm sure I posted my critique yesterday, but it seems to have disappeared! I agree it is a very good picture, and I wonder: did you take it at the Danish Road Museum on the island of Farö? We were there in 1993 and I think the bridge was quite new then.

Här har jag kört, med bilen full med öl. Jag tror dessutom att långtradaren som kör soderut också är fullastad med öl, från Sverige till gränshandeln i Tyskland så att alla svenskar kan köra tillbaks det till Sverige för en tredjedel av priset hemma.

I had to smile to muyself when I was reading the notes. And it is a very nice accompanying photo! You have created a fascinating impression of this majestic and famous bridge. Wonderful light and a great atmosphere. The yellow vehicle is the icing on the cake. My compliments!

Hello Gunnar, impressive bridge but more impressive is the note!!And it is true that they go and by things cheaper over the other side!
