Zeelandbrug, cold, windy, sunset and sun rays!
It was very high on my to do list for photography, however I did keep on postponing this location. The reason, well none actually. This is why for better or worse, weather is not an excuse, just go out and shoot! Really!
This time I took a well estimated guess that due to the wind and clouds in my area the province of Zeeland would be an even greater spectacle of sun and clouds and boy was I not mistaken.
I took of towards the Zeelandburg. The Zeeland Bridge (Dutch: Zeelandbrug) is the longest bridge in the Netherlands. The bridge spans the Oosterschelde estuary. It connects the islands of Schouwen-Duiveland and Noord-Beveland in the province of Zeeland.
The Zeeland Bridge was built between 1963 and 1965. At the time of its completion, it was the longest bridge of Europe. It has a total length of 5,022 metres, and consists of 48 spans of 95 metres, 2 spans of 72.5 metres and a movable bridge with a width of 40 metres.
The province of Zeeland borrowed the money for the construction of the bridge. The loan was repaid by levying tolls for the first 24 years.
So I did manage strong winds, around 4 degrees celsius temperatures and just being so cold that it took 25 minutes in the car with full heating on to get the feeling back in my toes. However it was a short but epic shoot.
