    Hi All

    Today I had the change to visit an very special place in Denmark.

    Sprogø is a little island placed in the midle of the sound of Storebælt the devide the big islands Sjælland and Fyn. There is about 18 km between the two big islands and there are build a bridge between them. There is 2 sections. from Sjælland a highspand bridge for car traffic and an tunnel for trains, the highspand brige has the sec. longest freespand in the world, 1624m. From the little Island Sprogø there is a lowbrige for car and train traffic to Fyn.
    The little island has been made app. 4 times bigger. All the new structures has been made on the "new land" on the island. The old part has been left as it was, because the nature is very special. The Island is offlimit for public, today I was lucky and had the change to visit it.

    i love them, the never ending perspective shot of the bridge, the last ones are
    really interesting with the light peering through...
     
  3. Makes big difference from travelling on the ferries where the train drove straight on board!!
     

  4. Why is this the case. It seems an enormous amount of money to spend on something that does not give access to the public.

    I like the second one. Nice perspective and it looks very similar to the bridge to the Ile de Re in western France.

    Hi Bob

    I think I dont got the explanation right..... sorry for my bad english. But they use the little island as an "platform" so they did not had to build it all the way. Sprogø has some special frogs, plants and som middleage ruins so they want to keep people away because it's so small and all the public would ruin the island

    To all of you: thanks for the nice words

    Nice work, I especially like the composition on the second image, and the BW conversion on the third is also well-done.

    Nice pictures Nico with unusual views of the bridge that we don't see very often. How did you get a permit to go there? Do you have to know someone who knows someone who knows......etc?

    Nice photos. I work for the developer of some of the software that was used in the design of that bridge.
