Not for the faint-hearted

The Sydney Harbour Bridge is iconic. It’s possible to take a guided tour of the superstructure, as these hardy souls have. No thank you: sea level is just fine with me.

Tuesday Photo Challenge: Connect

Frank’s theme for his Tuesday Photo Challenge this week is ‘Connect’: a poignant topic in the current times.

This image was taken from a hill on the outskirts of Edinburgh. Look carefully and you can see all three of the bridges that connect Edinburgh to the Kingdom of Fife.

Oh, and that white thing in the air on the left is an aeroplane. Remember them?

The Old Stone Bridge at Sainte Radegonde

The River Vienne is comparatively narrow as it flows between the villages of Sainte Radegonde and St-Germain-de-Confolens and it’s crossed by a very old stone bridge. Look over the side and you’ll see that the roadway is supported on a number of pontoons, such as this one.

Bridge of shadows

Bright sunshine in Cahors casts the shadow of the Pont Valentre onto the weir beneath it.

Bridge over the Vienne at Chabanais

The ironwork of the main road bridge across the River Vienne in Chabanais is perfectly mirrored in the water on an exceptionally clear, still and sunny day.

Tuesday Photo Challenge: Build

What you see here is one of the towers of the new Queensferry Crossing road bridge across the Firth of Forth just outside Edinburgh, while it was under construction. That should qualify for Frank’s theme of ‘Build’ for this week’s Tuesday Photo Challenge.

Considering that this photograph was taken with a mobile phone through the window of a car travelling at 50 mph – over the old road bridge – I don’t think it’s too bad.

This is what the finished article looks like; it’s stunning:

Tuesday Photo Challenge: Bridge

Frank’s theme for this week is ‘Bridge’, so here’s a twofer: two of the bridges that span the River Lot in the town of Cahors.

This more modern road bridge isn’t too shabby, especially when the shadows make it look a little like a set of nutcrackers:

…although the famous one is the medieval Pont ValentrĂ©:
