Weekly Photo Challenge: Forward

For Weekly Photo Challenge: Forward I chose another bridge, a very special and unique one. It is Øresund Bridge connecting Sweden and Denmark over the sea. But it is not usual bridge, as on the Denmark side there is an airport and having a bridge so close to it would have been risky. Another posibility was building a tunnel under the water, but it would have been very expensive. Therefore it was decided to build partially bridge and partially tunnel. Travelling over the bridge from Sweden is like you are going nowhere, as the bridge ends in the water. Getting closer you find you are going to “dive” under the sea. Quite interesting experience :-).

    Hi Katy, what a strange bridge tunnel. Does the water ever lap over?

    It is a masterpiece of a ‘bridge’.

    Very cool bridge+tunnel. I always admire this kind of construction because it shows how human beings can make impossible to be possible.

    Never seen that before. A bridge disappearing into the water part of the way across, cool! Love international bridge crossings. 🙂

    It always throws me off when I click on your blog (we are using the same background! Great minds . . . )
    Okay, that said; this bridge would TOTALLY freak me out. I have a big time phobia of bridges any way and I’m not to keen on going into the ocean, so there you have it. LOL But this is very interesting and cool if you weren’t’ a chicken like me! 🙂
