    Tower Bridge, not as fancy/new but very iconic.

    I don't believe anyone here (or very few) will know this one:
    [​IMG]

    It's from a place called 'The Forbidden Corner' in North Yorkshire. It's really wierd, pointed at the top and about 5ft wide.

    No, it just coincidentally contains "Oresund" and "Bridge" in the URL you saw when you quoted.

    World's taller bridge is a French one "Viaduc de Millau" :
    the road is at 270m and the highest point is 343m, and is the longest one (2 460m) using "haubans" (cable-stayed)
    [​IMG] [​IMG]


    2nd longest bridge (China), with 32.5km long.

    I guess water don't have a color, it only reflect the sky color.
    it can be sky pollution reflection, or mound or sand in the water.
    I really don't know [​IMG]

    The Humber Bridge which is not too far from where I live. For many years it was the world's longest single-span suspension bridge. I think it was the Japanese who eventually took the record away from us.

    I was going to do the Jeff Bridges gag but someone beat me to it.
