The old "Hef"

Here you see the old "Hef". A railway bridge over the Kings harbour in rotterdam out of duty but in use till 1993. Now the trains have a tunnel under the water and the bridge is a monument. When the bridge was build in 1878 the mid part was a turning bridge on a column but that gave so much trouble and accidents with the passing ships that in 1927 this construction replaced the old one.
I dedicate this one to sunday bridges here.

By the way I photographed this bridge from the balcony of my niece at a distance of 3000 mtr. with an old canon fd mirror tele 500mm f.8 on a 4/3 panasonic gf2 making it a 1000mm tele.

  1. I'm amazed at how long these bridges have lasted. Yet we have many bridges on the highways that are not withstanding the test of time.

  5. I like it, s.c. Soft light and colors give this a nice atmosphere. I don't know if telephotos have fallen out of favor recently, but I like the look here.
