The Bridge to Nowhere

17 Jul

Every once in a while an architect decides to get crazy and build a bridge to nowhere-

This is actually an optical illusion, but it’s still pretty cool!  This bridge is in Norway and connects the mainland to an island.


If you view it from another angle, you can see it doesn’t just end abruptly-

 I bet people still slow down when approaching it head on though!
