Where in the World (162)

The distorted photograph from last week certainly looked spectacular. It gave the impression of a bridge over pits of fire. Everybody recognised it as a bridge; that was the easy part. However the stone structures and the suspension style of the bridge  produced a wide range of answers. New York, specifically Brooklyn, was very popular. Another popular city among the incorrect answers was Budapest, closely followed by Prague.

It’s easy to see why these cities were all in the mix but their similar looking bridges are all fairly low over large rivers. On closer inspection the bridge featured in the distorted photograph is considerably higher up. In fact it bridges a gorge at the bottom of which is a river. The bridge is in fact the Clifton Suspension Bridge which identifies the city as Bristol in the UK.

There were a number of readers who correctly identified the city. Congratulations to Tim (@timofnewbury) who seems to be an expert on bridges when it comes to “Where in the World…”, Atal (@pixodentist), Jon (@SparksJon), Steve (@ThatchamWeather), Marica (@maricajagger) and Jackie (@JackiesJourneys). My thanks to all the others who took part.

This week’s twisted photograph is of another bridge and is another scene with a fiery looking theme. I hope that this one will generate as many answers last one but that more of them will be correct.
