HDR Images

High dynamic range imaging (HDRI) is a set of techniques that allows a greater dynamic range of exposures (the range of values between light and dark areas) than normal digital imaging techniques. The intention of HDRI is to accurately represent the wide range of intensity levels found in real scenes ranging from direct sunlight to shadows.

Some easter holiday pics from Fuengirola (Spain)

Fuengirola is a large town and municipality on the Costa del Sol in southern Spain in the province of Málaga and the autonomous community of Andalusia. It is a major tourist resort on the Costa del Sol, with more than 8 km of beaches, and home to a mediæval Moorish fortress. In common with much of this coast, it houses considerable urban development, much of it higher rise blocks of flats.

Broer som binder - Bridges between

Drammen - A city of bridges.
The Drammen River divides the city in two, and the bridges join these two halves together like small arteries.

In this shot I have caught five bridges.

Drammen Bridge (Drammensbrua) is a motorway box girder bridge that crosses Drammenselva river in the town of Drammen in Norway. It is the longest bridge in Norway, 1892 metres long. The bridge has 41 spans; the longest span is 60 metres. The maximum clearance to the water is 11 metres.

At the river mouth lies Holmen Island, with railway bridges, local road junctions and the motorway bridge, which form a dividing line between the city centre and the fjord area.

The main artery Built in 1936 in the classic functionalist style, the City bridge is located in the city centre. It replaced a wooden bridge built in 1811, which had become old and uneven and had fallen into disrepair. The City bridge is Drammen’s main artery, and carries heavy traffic in the form of cars, buses, cyclists and pedestrians. Several proposals to tear down the bridge and replace it have been put forward, but persistent maintenance work has repeatedly revived it. In a not too distant future it´s likely that much of today´s traffic will be using other crossing points, which will leave the City bridge to cyclists, pedestrians and collective means of transportation.

The City bridge

Ypsilon is the name of the new pedestrian bridge between Drammen Park (on the Bragernes river bank) and the Science Park (on the Strømsø side).
