Willemsbrug rotterdam

Here you see the Willems bridge over the Maas in rotterdam. Called after king William III who let build the first one. In 1981 this bridge became its replacement. The designer of the bridge would have made it with 1 column and cables but in that time the engineers didn't trust that construction and if you look good you see on the two sides pylons. Nowadays 1 pylon is the norm of course.

  1. Mooi licht met de donkere wolken. Bijzonder hoe de gebouwen en de brug zo nietig lijken.

  2. very pretty view, SC!

    Most engineers are very conservative. Better safe than sorry!

  4. Hi s.c,
    How cool this grayish picture is! I can see something red flying in the sky left side. I wonder what it is.
