That is an interesting structure in the first shot. Sometimes, I wish I had studied engineering so I could really understand these things!

This looks different from any other bridges I have ever seen before. Is it a lift bridge?

bettyl said...

@EGWow - Neither of the two bridges lifts open. They simply cross a small river.

Your two bridges are so interesting and each is very unique in its own way. The first one is a marvel of engineering...all those cables are unusual. The second one looks like fun to cross. You captured both nicely. This was a most enjoyable post to view.

I've never seen anything quite like the first one - but I really like the cables.

They are quite narrow, one lane only, right?

Belle said...

Very interesting and different!

Both bridges look as if they are quite rugged. The structure of the first one is quite interesting.

Welcome contributions to Sunday Bridges.

Count me in also as someone that is in awe of the bridge structure. Not a common sight.

Tanya said...

This picture reminds me of the movie "The Bridges of Madison County" by Clint Eastwood and Meryl Streep.
