This month's contribution to Broer som Binder (Bridges between) takes us to Denmark.

This was published here in July 2007 in response to the "body of water" theme at One Deep Breath.
A year earlier we had passed under this bridge on the cruise ship Aurora on our way from Gydnia to Oslo.
The Great Belt (Danish: Storebælt) is a strait between the main Danish islands of Zealand (Sjælland) and Fyn. Since 1997 the islands have been connected by the Great Belt Fixed Link.
The whole of the link consists of a road suspension bridge and railway tunnel between Zealand and the island Sprogø, as well as a box girder bridge between Sprogø and Funen. The suspension bridge (known as the East Bridge) was then the second longest in the world but has dropped now to third place.
Here is a slideshow of some of the other pictures I took while sailing under.
