Well I know exactly where you were from yesterday's shot ~ good strong lines here and rail meets road ~ almost ~ nice shot Amelia

It might have been this one Mira, taken on a dull day under the bridge linking Tananger with Stavanger, over Hafrsfjord. The Norwegians seem to like curved bridges :))

Drammen is, on the whole, much sunnier than Tananger, and in many ways it loses the drama, but I'm so pleased you like this photo.

Greetings dear friend, Amelia

Dear Nick, I have stopped "hymphing" now, my arms are uncrossed, and I am not looking aloof :)))

It's good that you can see where I was yesterday [well in postings anyway]. The rail bridge is coming in from Oslo to Drammen station, and the road bridge is going south to Fredrikstad where da Moose's ancestors came from. Crossing this bridge on the train was my first view of Drammen :))

Ciao, Amelia

BTW, enjoy tomorrow's GP with Button in pole position :)

Well apart from the drama just after the start it was a deadly boring race ~ but my hero won ~ so what the hell and it gave me a chance to catch up on the Sunday papers!! I've found an antidote for your pills btw ~ I thought that they would be some sort of horrid red shade, but it turns out that they are black ~ you can find them on the first page of my gallery ~ they are a little large, but I'm sure that a hungry invisible macro goat could nibble away at them and scoff the lot in a trice!

A wonderful reply you have just posted on your fishy shot dearest macro ~ I comment here so as to not remove your wonderful wit from the general comments area too quickly ~ ciao

Good morning Arthur, thank you so much for your praise, I really appreciate it. The bridges over this part of the river in Drammen are fascinating :)

Greetings, Amelia

Good morning Nick, well I'm so pleased you enjoyed the GP result!! What was the drama at the beginning of the race BTW. Adrian missed it as we went walking in the hills on a very grey and blustery day.

Thank goodness you have found the pills - but they look a bit like gherkins, how am I supposed to swallow them? Never mind - if I eat a lot of them I could reach 6 foot high, and see over everybody's head for a change :)))

Thanks for the fish comment ... do you think anyone else out there will understand the gibberish ? ;-)

Ciao, Amelia

Thank you so much Jen, I really enjoyed my 2 day visit to Drammen, and these bridges held a fascination for me. both from above and underneath :))

Greetings, Amelia

Greets, Amelia

Paula K on June 5, 2009

I love the curves in this one Amelia!


Amelia Royan on August 3, 2009

Thanks Paula, they aren't the prettiest of bridges but there a lot of them crossing the river, Drammenselva, at this point :))

Cheers, Amelia
