Returning home from the last weeks with some 6.000km driving through Europe - the last leg is done with the great car ferry MS Color Fantasy from Kiel in Germany to Oslo (20hrs sailing).
In this photo pointing to the west we can see the low coast profile of Jylland in Denmark.
Be welcome also to a look at my album from those super ferries MS Color Fantasy and MS Color Magic:

Very difficult to have this 18km bridge in one photo. Even this stitch of 3 offer some "strange" lines here and there...
The photo is made from the aft deck of the big car ferry MS Color Fantasy after passing under the great bridge some minutes before.
Some more of the bridge from the net:
The 18 km long fixed link across Storebælt comprises two bridges and a tunnel.
Construction work on Storebælt took place from 1988-1998. The motorway across Storebælt opened in 1998 and the railway opened in 1997.
The construction costs for the entire Storebælt project totalled DKK 21.4 billion in 1988 prices.
Find under here another photo from the car ferry just after passing the great bridge.

I am onboard the huge car ferry MS Color Fantasy on my last leg coming in my car from South of France en route to Oslo. Taking this great car ferry saves me from driving the last app. 800 km...

This 360-km network of navigable waterways linking the Mediterranean and the Atlantic through 328 structures (locks, aqueducts, bridges, tunnels, etc.) is one of the most remarkable feats of civil engineering in modern times. Built between 1667 and 1694, it paved the way for the Industrial Revolution. The care that its creator, Pierre-Paul Riquet, took in the design and the way it blends with its surroundings turned a technical achievement into a work of art.
