Seraphim Crossing

I find this really amazing.

(Click on the pictures for the full effect)

This is the Millau Viaduct, a road-bridge supported by cables, that spans the River Tarn Valley in southern France. It opened in December 2004 and it is a little taller than the Eiffel Tower and only 125ft shorter than the Empire State Building.

And people drive across it.

You can read more about it here or see more images here.

And, yeah, those are clouds.

For another cool bridge google Confederation Bridge. Built to connect PEI with New Brunswick. Very long, and very tough to withstand 5 months of winter.

hi chris
Thanks for that - I read up on it and saw some great photos, as well. Saw an excellent picture with what looked like every bit of water frozen around the bridge. Very cool (no pun) and kind of lonely.
