Bridges on a Odd Shot Monday
As my regular visitors are well informed about, I spent some days on Flem Island a week ago. The arrival to "Eidet" and our good friends Asbjørn and Anne Katharina (their house can be seen upper right if you click on the photo), has to be done by passing the bridge over "Ullasundet" as seen on the photo above.
The small island behind the bridge is called "Ullaholmen" and is only occupied by "wild" sheep that are living out there the year around.
The second Bridge today is the tiny walking bridge to Ulla Lighthouse on Kvernholmen only a few hundred meters to the west from the first bridge. You may rent the house on the island, and do fishing (granted result) from the shores around. Yesterday I mentioned I planned to visit Kistefos Museum which we did in continuous rainy weather. A fantastic exhibition with 54 oil/tempera paintings by Thore Heramb cannot be recommended high enough. No camera accepted in the gallery, but in the park you may se some fantastic sculptures well fitted for Monday Odd Shots.
The first is Bjarne Melgaard´s "Octopus" from 1997 and the second Petroc Sesti´s "Energy/Matter/Space/Time" from 2006 Turn the next 180 gr around to see the correct versionThere is a bridge at Kistefos Træsliperi too, controlling "Randelva" and the waterfall for the old Pulp mill and the hydroelectric power plant.
