This picture of the Royal Gorge Bridge is a composite of two photos taken from the bank of the Arkansas River.
Unlike most of my composite images, this one had to be manually “stitched” in the photo software.
The Royal Gorge Bridge is a tourist attraction near Cañon City, Colorado, within a 360 acre (1.5 km²) theme park. The bridge deck hangs 955 feet (291 m) above the Arkansas River, and held the record of highest bridge in the world from 1929 until 2001, when it was surpassed by a bridge in China. It is a suspension bridge with a main span of 938 feet (286 meters). The bridge is 1260 feet (384 m) long and 18 feet (5 m) wide, with a wooden walkway with 1292 planks. The bridge is suspended from towers that are 150 feet (46 m) high. (Wikipedia)
