I like bridges, those who have been following my blog might have read my several posts on Bridges.
The bridge is a suspension bridge, with towers near its end.
The hanging cables and the bridge parapets just converge towards the tower.
Here is an interesting image showing Silhouettes in different shades.
People and cyclists hastily crossing the bridges.
Nearest to us is the steel truss bridge with the truss members in silhouette.
Further away is the Jiefang Bridge (Liberation Bridge), with its bow string shape – arches in each river crossing span with cables suspending from the arches to support the bridge deck.
Of course, you can also see the Pearl River and some buildings in the background.
Again, thanks to my friend CP Chan who provided this interesting image.
Here are a couple of images which I think show the most beautiful part when driving along the Pacific Coast or State Route 1.
While the National Parks in the SW was her major focus of the trip, the drive back from Las Vegas to San Francisco along the SR1 was one of the most memorable.
The second photo shows part of the Bixby Creek Bridge in Big Sur.
Both images are wonderful examples of silhouette which I would like to share.
The bridge, which has three arch central spans, is ranked as the third most beautiful bridge in Japan.
Incidentally, I have several pictures here some how associate the bridge with Three.
Actually, while there, I did not see them being successful in catching any fishes!
But maybe, the real joy is participating in the activity and enjoying the view :-)

In my previous post, I have shown an overview of the footbridge which is ranked the third most beautiful bridge in Japan.
The water below the bridge was running fast – I imagine that the speed will increase with torrential rain. A lot of armour rocks were laid underneath the bridge to protect the bridge pier and foundations.
Hope this post is not too technical; I may post more on the aesthetic side of the bridge in due course!
The Frommers travel guide considers the Golden Gate Bridge “possibly the most beautiful, certainly the most photographed, bridge in the world”. It opened in 1937 and had, until 1964, the longest suspension bridge main span in the world, at 4,200 feet (1,300 m).
This groups of bridges took 10 years to build and was completed in 1988.
There is no doubt in my mind that the elder sister looks more aesthetically attractive, despite the age!
