Monochrome Bridges Between

This is the old bridge over Urlandså, not far from Mo i Rana in the north of Norway. There is another, highway bridge right beside - but I like this one best! I guess there are some trolls living under it ;)

Nice exposure, composition and contrast. Well done.

Ida said...

Flotte kontraster med gelenderet der mot de store steinene.
Veldig flott!
Kledelig i sort/hvitt. :)

Hjelp, jeg har nemlig glemt "Broer som binder"! Igjen!
Tipper at Rune gir meg opp nå. Hehe. Jaja, man kan vel kommer sterkere tilbake, før eller senere.... ;)

Ønsker deg ei finfin ny uke, der du til og med krysser noen nye broer også, kanskje. ;)

Klem.

Hope the trolls are working at night to build it again. They've already diverted the river : )

It's an amazing picture, B&W reveals so many details, and textures. We can imagine the strength of the stream.

Barbara said...

I can see why you like this bridge.
Nice capture. Smiles B

JC said...

Beautifully done... definitely a troll bridge!

Babooshka said...

I look for trolls under bridges but they have also fled before I get there. Lovely monochrome really shows off all the detail and textures.

kden said...

What a great shot. I don't know how I have missed your blog so far. All of your photos are quite amazing. I will look for yours from now on!

Aileni said...

Actually it looks like a troll half sunk in the rock, with beetling eyebrows.
A fine picture photographically, interesting geologically and fabulously mythic.

Robin said...

That is indeed a magical looking spot, perched half in, half out like that.

Terri said...

This is stunning! I believe trolls would live under that bridge.

All your photos are wonderful. I will enjoy perusing your site!

jam said...

I like your blog and the pictures in it so much! I am always dreaming of going to Norway. BTW, I had added you to my blogroll. Thanks for sharing such a wonderful pictures!

magiceye said...

looks like a painting by one of the masters of old!

Dina ... UK said...

It is beautiful in b/w.
I bet it's beautiful in colour too.

Never met a Troll...LOL.. :-/

Arija said...

An old stone bridge beats a modern one every time! Great stonework and photo.

Mario said...

Very nice b&w processing.The scene itself is fantastic, but you beautifully took it higher. Superb work.

Carolina said...

It would be a great illustration for a fairytailbook about trolls
;-) Lovey photo!

Linnea W said...

What a charming looking bridge - even with the resident trolls! Excellent shot that shows a lot of great texture and light/dark variations.

Liz said...

That is amazing. It took me a while to work out what was what! Fabulous place.

Daryl said...

Wonderful .. all those contrasts of texture and shape and shadow .. well done indeed

Gärdsmygen said...

Mycket vackert!

Pagan Sphinx said...

Firstly, let me tell you how much I like this photo. Then, I want to tell you that you made me chuckle a bit with the trolls bit! It reminds me of a question I asked my fiance many years ago when he declared his preference for walking and exploring UNDER bridges, than for walking over them. :-)

Charlotte said...

Ja, det var ett lekkert bilde. Fantastisk at det fortsatt finnes slike flotte broer i Norge :) Jeg også har boken til han Fjørtoft. Men den siste boka her er så bra skrevet, den fenger skikkelig. Jeg fikk den på lørdag og nå har jeg lest den ut fra perm til perm. Jeg synd den veldig bra. Men det er klart at det kommer kanskje an på hvor belært du er fra før om den er bra for deg. Men for en amatør-fotograf som meg, er den knall bra! Søk den opp på amazone.uk der kan du få sett litt i selve boka :)

ArneA said...

Det må ha vært en stund siden jeg besøkte eg, for mange av postene dine var nye for meg. "tribute to A.R., and I whish him all the best in Moscow!" var kjempe eller konge som de sier nå.
Fruen hilser og takker

Anemone said...

Utrolig flott Lene, og morsomt at du velger den sort hvite utgaven, som om man med ett forventer en hest med slede komende over der :-)

Stilig!!

Samantha ~ Holly and Zac ~ said...

That looks a beautiful bridge, great shot.

hehe... i can just imagine those trolls living underneath.

RuneE said...

Det var en liten skjønnhet du hadde funnet der! Artig i s & h - fint inntrykk som kler motivet.

PS Takk for fin kommentar - vi snakkes!

Anne på Moseplassen said...

du så flott da! Virkelig lekker bro og nydelig bilde :)

Rose said...

Wow, this is an awesome bridge...and I bet if I could see the color version, that I would still choose this one.

BTW, I don't know if you like awards or not...I have one for you at my blog. It doesn't offend me at all if you don't acknowledge it on here. I just wanted to share your blog with others cause I love your photography.

Tricia said...

I found your page on Rose's blog & wanted to stop by & say Hi! I've scrolled down looking at your photos & WoW! They're truly fantastic!

Garden Angel said...

Hahahaha....jeg ler meg ihjel;)
Duu det kortet sende jeg jo lenge før jul, da jeg var på julebord med jobben...flirer:)

Tenkte meg nok at du hadde fått det idag. For ei på jobben ikveld fikk telefon fra søsteren sin, hun hadde fått kortet idag..hihi
Snakker om rask levering!

Jeg skulle jo på besøk til deg uka etter, så derfor tenkte jeg at jeg skulle sende kort til deg...hihi

Jaja...sånn kan det gå!
Men jada bare du blir ferdig med praksisen, så må vi treffes igjen.
Det var jo så koselig sist!!!
Men bare så det er sagt...anbefaler ikke menyen jeg valgte. Bestilte godt stekt, og fikk noe seigt og rødt...fysj og fysj.

Flott bilde du viser!
Stilig med sånne gamle broer!
Ha en fin uke kjære Lene:)
Vi snakkes(",)klem fra meg

"Sunshine" said...

Great texture and contrast!

raf said...

Yes, this is definitely where I would expect one big woolly troll running the show!
Good choice to make this b@w, Lene. Very striking!

Grace and Bradley said...

Caught my eye right away, a great picture.

Amanda said...

Beautiful job!! The contrast is perfect.. it captures the detail of the different textures so well..

Your EG Tour Guide said...

Beautiful bridge and wonderful shot.

Fernando Pagán said...

Very, very good image!
Beautiful b/w.Nice textures.

Joe Narvaez said...

Wow! Wish I could make my shots that perfect. Very beautiful!

Marie said...

Good work! I am impressed!

CushmoK said...

Des noirs très denses pour cette réalisation, intéressant, oui..

Dragonstar said...

What a wonderful bridge! So many textures and patterns, and they show at their best in Black & White. Beautiful shot Lene.

Jag ställer mig i fyrtiotredje led och instämmer med ovanstående: fantastiskt vacker bild! Blev glad bara jag tittade på den.

Lovise said...

Heia vennen:)

De brua kjente jeg igjen, ja. Har kjørt der mange mange ganger på vei mot Mo i Rana.. Tenk for en jobb de hadde som bygget den. Ikke gjort på en dag det, nei.
Håper du har fine vinterdager og at du ikke bare strever i stedet for å nyte sola og snøen. Her er alt velstand kan du skjønne. Tankene virrer til det nyfødte lille gullet bare rett som det er, men jeg regner det som naturlig. Han er bra lik sin pappa har jeg funnet ut ved å dra fram gamle familiebilder, he he. Sikkert ei typisk farmor, eller hva tror du?

Klemmer til deg Lenemor.

Mojo said...

This is simply perfect! Contrast, tonal range, detail, everything just perfect.

I salute you!

beerbear said...

To be a good human being is to from a make of openness to the far-out, an cleverness to trust undeterminable things beyond your own restrain, that can govern you to be shattered in unequivocally extreme circumstances pro which you were not to blame. That says something very weighty about the prerequisite of the ethical life: that it is based on a corporation in the uncertain and on a willingness to be exposed; it's based on being more like a shop than like a sparkler, something fairly tenuous, but whose extremely precise handsomeness is inseparable from that fragility.
