Look, ma we’re among the clouds!
First off, that picture is real. Real that is, taken through a camera lens, UN-photoshopped. This is the Millau Viaduct, located in southern France which crosses the River Tarn in the Massif Central mountains. It is, the world highest road bridge, spanning majestically at 300m (984 feet), weighing 36,000 tonnes and is 1.5 miles (2.5km) long. Designed by Sir Norman Foster (don’t know him? you’re kiddin me arent ya?), this bridge costs 272 million pounds and beats the Eiffel Tower by more than 50 feet. It was opened to traffic December last year.
Amazing yea? yeah, I was like, wooow! when I saw this news. FYI, I have a certain liking for large structures, skyscrapers, superstructures, megasturctures, watchamacallit, since like I was small XD
