The Sunshine Skyway Bridge or more casually the Skyway, is a bridge spanning Tampa Bay, Florida, with a cable-stayed main span, and a total length of 21,877 feet. The Travel Channel rated the Sunshine Skyway number 3 in its special on the “Top 10 Bridges” in the World. The bridge is considered the “flag bridge” of Florida.
The southbound span (opened in 1971) of the original bridge was destroyed at 7:33 a.m. on May 9, 1980, when the freighter MV Summit Venture collided with a pier (support column) during a blinding thunderstorm, sending over 1,200 feet (370 m) of the bridge plummeting into Tampa Bay. The collision caused six cars, a truck, and a Greyhound bus to fall 150 feet (46 m) into the water, killing 35 people.
This view is from the east beach of the Fort De Soto Park on a sunny afternoon.
One can enjoy this great view of the bridge over the gorge after a half mile walk to get to this spot. The view is splendid from where I shot those pics. Enjoy this mile and a half hike to the rocky bottom to look back at the former train trestle bridge which holds Rte. 4 today.
I wanted to get the reflection of the bridge in the Ottauquechee River.

From the top of the Corcovado Mountain, on a clear day, one gets gasping with the spectacular view of this beautiful city. This panorama is a merger of 9 individual shots.
Closer look of the Bridge to Niteroi in Rio, ((the middle go the panoramic shot above) considered to be the highest, tallest and oldest bridges in the world. The Rio-Niterói Bridge connects the cities of Rio de Janeiro and Niterói in Brazil. It is 8.25 miles (13,290 m) long.
A huge undertaking and work is moving along.
Traffic jam in China is a driver’s nightmare 24 hours a day. Driving on the freeway/expressway bumper to bumper is an understatement. Traffic congestion is routinely causing bottleneck effect situations forcing drivers to get stuck in their car for long period of time. I have seen worst situations than what these photos describe. Just to give you an idea…
Professional cleaning services is required for these dangerous jobs, with precautionary measures. But somebody has to do it.

Cathedral-like arches on the Brooklyn Bridge. It is one of the great sites to see in New York, and best of all walk the length of the Bridge to view the spectacular panorama of New York City.
View of the Stopera, where the Amsterdam city hall and opera house are located.
Amsterdam is a vibrant city and one cannot get bored there, for it offers in every block an opportunity to see different things. For the photographer, it’s gratifying.
