Bridges Between / My World Tuesday

Today I combine two memes in one post. I will add Bridges Between into My World Tuesday.

This brigde is located in Trondheim connecting the city center and Nedre Elvehavn.
The bridge is crossing the river Nidelven. In Trondheim we like to call this bridge Blomsterbrua, The Flower Bridge. Because in the summertime there are lots of flowers planted out along the hand rail on both sides.

Behind the bridge you can see a part of Rica Nidelven Hotel.


Here you are looking towards Nedre Elvehavn and Solsiden Shopping center.

For more Bridges, please visit RuneE.



Some minutes away from the Flower Bridge you will find Nidaros Cathedral.
This wonderful cathedral was built between 1070 and 1300.





For more photos around the exciting world, please visit My World Tuesday. Feel free to join.

  1. That's quite a church Ivar. You've captured it well. I can't help but wonder how old some of the grave stones are since the church is so old. I'll bet they all died from freezing to death ... lol!!!

    Beautiful bridge as well. I'm assuming it is a foot bridge? I can only imagine how wonderful it must look with flowers lining each side. It must be a lot of work to take care of them all!

  2. Er den broen ganske ny? Den ser slik ut i hverfall. Kan tenke meg at den er et vakkert syn om sommeren. Slettens ikke værst nå heller. Og kirken er like fin året rundt. Jeg har vært der og tror jeg har noen bilder på bloggen min også. Men så fine bilder som du har er det ikke så mange som får til. :-)

  4. Det er morsomt å se at man har tatt i bruk moderne materialer i brobygging, men samtidig klart å gjøre det estetisk bra. Vi gleder oss til er "blomsterbilde"!

    Nidarosdomen er alltid vakker! Ta den med så ofte du kan.

  10. Å ja Ivar, den broen var en av mine først bro innlegg. Dog tatt en sen nattetime, men du for en spennende form den har.

    Vakre bilder som vanlig, også av byens stolthet.

    Glemte helt broer denne dagen jeg dsverre, men kommer vel flere anledninger.

    ...kan du ikke `sjå innom, trøng råd sjø`...please...

  11. What fabulous and beautiful places. I love the curve of the bridge. The cathedral is fantastic. One must wonder if they are so spectacular or if you capture them so well that they are. I think they must be incredible, but not every picture would show them as such as yours do.

    How have you been doing?

  22. Wow I like the bridge and everything that is over at the end of the bridge. There's sure a lot of snow where you are. Love the snow on the roof and the church have so beautiful architectural designs. Thanks for sharing.

  23. Hi Ivar! The first csthedral pic is the 'money shot' here, awesome, with the sun and that little hint of fence in the bottom corner. Nice shot of the detail also. And the curve of that bridge surely does carry the eye.

    When are you going to get some real snow there? Michigan way has you beat, haha.

  24. Oh, i like the angle on the 3rd bridge pic. Nice shot! The facade of the Cathedral looks so fascinatng and to think it is very old.

  31. Hei:) Har akkurat vært på Rica hotell med noen malerier til galleriet. Fikk ikke fotografert rundt der i dag, men langs kanalene istedet.
    Flotte bilder, og da spesielt de som speiler seg i vann:-)

  32. Her kunne du minsanten putta inn enda ett meme: Blomsterbrua hadde vel vært super for "Today`s flower" ;)

    Flotte bilder fra Tondheim. Vi har liksom alltid bare kjørt forbi. Vi snakket om å stoppe sist, men da ar det festival i byen, og vi fant ut at det sikkert var sånn passe kaos. Men NESTE gang - da.... Du gjør iallefall en knalljobb som turissjef ;)

  37. What can I possibly add to all these positive and true comments? Plus post pictures of the bridges in summer with flowers, that's all.

  40. Norway certainly has some graceful bridges - a credit to the architects. And I am amazed at the workmanship in the old churches of Europe. You have captured some fabulous images!

    ReplyDelete
  41. That is quite a catch of atmosphere, Ivar! Very well done!

  44. I love the cathedral and other historic buildings - has to do with my love for art. Since you photographed bridges, you might like my blogpost: Adventures of an artist: bridges (it's about bridges in China).
    I have no skill in photography, but painting is something else, haha - cheers, jeannette
