A last look at Peberholmen. I found it interesting that it was possible to spend several hours on an island 4 km. long and a few hundred meters wide.
I’ll admit – I didn’t have the courage to clim up on the rocks. I could probably have gotten up but I don’t think I would have gotten back down. Judging from the photographic activity, the view of the bridge from there was great. On the other hand, I wouldn’t have taken this image if I had climbed up together with everyone else.
The fun part about being on a press tour is that sometimes the photographers themselves create the best motives.
View from the northern point of Peberholmen, right were the freeway coming up from the tunnel turns into a bridge.
The boulders around the 4 kilometer long artificial island were placed to keep the soil in place. In the background you also see the bridge between Sweden and Denmark. The first part of the connection from Denmark is a tunnel. The road comes up into the open and continue over the bridge on Peberholmen.
This pretty flower is very rare. It’s of the orchid family. Everything on Peberholmen has been brought there by coincidence. 15 years ago it was barren.
Our guide on the trip to the artificial island in the Sound between Sweden and Denmark joked that for some reason only the blue and yellow flowers thrive, no red or white flowers (check the colour of the flags…)
