The Beautiful High Coast Bridge (Högakustenbron) / North Sweden (entrance to UNESCO WHS High Coast)

It was a rainy day, but in this case I liked the fog!

 

The High Coast Bridge is the second longest suspension bridge in Scandinavia (after Great Belt Fixed Link in Denmark), the third longest in Europe, and the eleventh longest in the world. The total length is 1,867 metres (6,125 ft) and the column pillars are 180 metres (591 ft) tall. The bridge was constructed between 1993 and 1997. The bridge also marks the entrance to the UNESCO world heritage site the "High Coast", which you can read more about here whc.unesco.org/en/list/898.
