‘De Oversteek’ is the name of a new iconic bridge in Nijmegen over the river Waal. Translated the name means ‘The crossing’ in respect for the US Army 504th Infantry Regiment of the 82nd Airborne Brigade that crossed the river during operation Market Garden in 1944. The bridge was opened in November 2013 and is part of the new ring route of the city.
The bridge has a lot to offer for photographers, during day and night when the bridge is beautifully lit, among 48 lampposts, honouring the 48 heroes that lost their lives during the crossing.
I went to the bridge a couple of times, with the photo club but also on my own. Time to gather some pictures in one post.
