Photographer's Note

Denmark was for years divided by 18 km wide water – Great belt - which people had to cross by boat or ferries.
But since 1997 has it been possible to travel here by car and train as well – The train connection goes through a tunnel, half the way and the rest of the way shares it a bridge parallel with the “wheel-vehicles” (not shown on this photo).

The East Bridge is the most impressive part of the Great Belt connection – Its 6790 meters long - the pylons (towers) 254 meters high and the distance between the pylons 1624 meters – which the second largest in the world only beaten by this bridge in Japan - Thanks Daniel.

For some months ago a lucky man drove car #50.000.000 over the bridge – lucky him because he was invited to visit the top the pylons on a clear day – surely a sight I would like to shot.

I got this shot in the daybreak, where the night spotlight still was on.
Actually did I use the car roof as tripod - and I was in a hurry for a meeting in Copenhagen.

(Ups the year was 1997 instead of 1987 - thanks Richard)
