Jeg må si som Anne Berit - den broen har jeg også kjørt over. For 20 år siden. Får meg til føle meg gammel. Jeg likte den fine måten du hadde fått dybden i bildee mvh elven

PS Her hadde det vel kanskje vært kasus for Topaz? Har nettop vært ute for å ta bilder av rimkrystaller. Kommer tilbake med lengre E-post senere.

A classic bridge that I once crossed many years ago. A fine monument for both city and photographer.

I love the wonderful lines of this bridge. So 'elegant'. It doesn't spoil the scenery, it attracts the attention.

Excellent shot... you captured so much to look at while leading to the bridge!

Sorry to be so remiss in answering your questions... no HDR or tone mapping, though I am fond of duplicating layers and adding overlay or multiply or other depending on the shot.

Belíssima! Abraço

Essa alegria, que me põe cativo,
colheu-me, um dia, morto... e agora eu vivo. *Furlam Naeto*

Har sansen for den type broer. Via mine øyne og inn i mitt hode så ser slike meget bra ut. :-)

Rune said...

Morsomt å se den broen i det perspektivet også :) Flott bilde!

Beautiful place, looks like the scene of a movie.
Take care :)

Certainly a high bridge! The waterways in Norway would make it difficult for automobiles if not for the fantastic bridges.

very pretty sight!

Beautiful image John and I like the way you have composed this image even more.

Kostas said...

Marvellous opinion of splendid subject!

Reader Wil said...

This is a perfect picture of a beautiful scenery! The bridge is very long and high. The second last time that I was in Norway I walked the Svinesundbrua from Norway to Sweden. I thought it awfully high and as I have a fear of heights, you'll understand that I could at that moment not enjoy the beautiful surroundings. So I am glad that I can see your photos, they are fantastic!

Nå var jeg sikker på at du hadde lagt ut bilde av samme broen jeg la ut bilde av forrige mnd, Karmsund bro. De er jo helt identiske. Tenk at broen vår har en ukjent tvilling. Vår ble tatt i bruk i 1955, s den er litt eldre.

Flott bidrag dette. :)
Flott bro, vakkert fotografert av deg. Fine farger og liv i bildet.
