That's an impressive structure. The suspension cables appear to be
smaller in diameter than in comparable bridges, such as the Golden Gate.

>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 area:
>To get a closer view of the bridge, I mounted the Leica 90mm Tele-

>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.
