    Hardangerbrua, the Hardanger Bridge, a new landmark in Norway. It crosses Hardangerfjorden at Vallavik. It’s Norways largest bridge, the main span is 1.310 metres, 30 metres longer thant the Golden Gate bridge in San Fransisco.

      An early november morning 1997, southbound Harald Jarl leaves Florø at 8 o’clock, heading for Bergen. Unsharp effect due to panning the camera and zooming the lens during the exposure in the dawn. I went to Florø just to try out this technique, and the result was satisfactory.

      • Impressing bridge - 76 years after the Golden Gate the Norwegians finally have a bigger one. The huge span width of 1.310m is because of the deep water in the fjord which made it impossible to place a bridge post there. Though there is one disadvantage: The bridge is "only" 55m high and so the big cruise ships have no access to nthe inner Hardangerfjord anymore.

          Thank you for your comment Ralf. Yes, the free sailing height is only 55 metres, that excludes the biggest cruise ships, fpor instance QM2. I have asked the destination company Destination Hardanger why, and they say this is a calculated matter, because they have neither the infrastructure, roads nor sights to take care of the largest ships with the most passengers. A ship carrying 3.000 passengers has to distribute the pax in coachloads a 44, which makes 70 coaches. And so many coaches are simply non-exsistant in Eidfjord and surroundings. So the inner Hardanger is quite happy with 55 metres and the smaller ships.

          It is not always true that big is better!!
          So the operator of the "smaller" ships , who can offer something the big boys cannot, are probably also happy.
          A win-win situation??

          This has my applause also. Maybe Norway needs more of such bridges???

          Stena Jutlandica leaves Frederikshavn, September 1998. In those days, the public was free to walk on the molos. Today they are closed to the public and no admittance. ISPS, I guess.

              Stranded on the beach.

              At Torup Strand, a small village to the northwest of northern Jutland, Denmark, there is no harbour, so the fishing boats are pulled up on the beach by a bulldozer when they come in from the days fishing.

              • When we were at Limfjord in June, I thought long about driving to Torup to watch the scenery when they pull out the boats. But it was quite far away (more than 100km) from our place. Next time.
                But thank you very much for your pictures. Now i know for sure that i missed something.

                  I didn't see your comment until now, Ralf. Yes, that would have been spectacular. And if they used a bulldozer to get them ashore, how did they get them afloat the next day? Bulldozer or tide? That would have been even more spectacular to see.....

                  • With the funnel midships, Kong Olav is cetainly the most elegant and balanced ship of this generation. Nice capture of Europa. I bet you can see all passengers staying outside.

                        In those days it cannot been too easy to take this type of images?

                        You are so right! But the summer night was relatively light, I used my monopod (my favorite pod), the Provia was ISO100 (? do I remember right, Fuji also had a ISO 400 positive film, it could have been this one I used?) and RW approached really slow and her superstructure acted as a reflector of the excisting light - so fortunately, I got this picture - and some more, but this is the most interesting.

                      Richard With calls Måløy an early April morning 2003:
                      Souhtbound RW should have called Måløy at 0515 in the morning, but was delayed and docked just as the northbound left, at 0730. That is an over two hours delay. Picture taken from northbound Nordlys.
