I flew to Copenhagen on Wednesday afternoon, my first trip anywhere since 
November. I am spending 4 days in Denmark, the first 2 in Aarhus and the last 2 
in Copenhagen. So on landing in Copenhagen, I picked up my rental car (the 
trains were more or less sold out due to Easter) and drove the 300 km to 
Aarhus. Along the way, I passed the magnificent Great Belt Bridge, connecting 
the islands of Sjælland (where Copenhagen is located) with Funen (with Odense, 
the birthplace of H.C. Andersen, as the main town). Opened in 1998, it is an 
engineering marvel, consisting of a 1.6 km long suspension bridge to allow 
ships to pass, a tunnel for the trains, and a low bridge the rest of the way 
for both trains and cars. The total length of the connection is 18 km. I was 
approaching the bridge as the sun was was setting, so I left the motorway 
briefly and drove down to the old ferry harbour which is now just a recration 

To get a closer view of the bridge, I mounted the Leica 90mm Tele-Elmarit on my 

Then I got back in my car and drove on to Aarhus.

Later today, I will pass the same bridge on the way to Copenhagen, but the 
views are not nearly as nice from the other side.
