Locomotive and freight car on marshalling yard, Ulm, Germany, 1988 It was near sun­set when I noticed these rail­way vehicles from a foot­bridge that spans part of Ulm's marshalling yard. Tracks at Malmö's Central Station, Sweden, 1986 On my first visit to Sweden, I went to Malmö's Central station.  Seen from a plat­form, far out, the rails seemed to inter­sect end­less­ly. Signs in Kristiansand's railway station, Norway, 1990 Our travel party had split up and taken different ferries.  I had been on the earlier one and while waiting, I explored the rail­way station and its environ­ment.

Tunnel at the old north coastal road, Island of Madeira, 2003 When I visited Madeira's north coast, I went for a walk on the old north coastal road (Antiga E.R. 101) that was closed to the traffic around 2002.  In 2003, I visited the old tunnel through that leads through a section under a water­fall (see also the related picture).
Note of 2011: in the meantime the tunnel has been destroyed by a landslide, so this picture already shows history.
Mackinac Bridge, Michigan, USA, 1997 The U.S. state of Michigan comprises two areas of land that separated by the straits of Mackinac, that connect Lake Michigan and Lake Huron.  The straits itself are spanned by the im­pressive Mackinac Bridge. Dempster Highway, Yukon Territory, Canada, 1992 After having visited Dawson City, we headed toward Inuvik on the Dempster High­way that is only a gravel road for hundreds of kilometers. During a break, I tried to catch the remote­ness of the road with the camera.
