One of the iconic landmarks along the Pacific Highway 1 in Big Sur, California (slightly distorted in this 360 deg. panorama :)). It was built in 1932 and for a while was the highest single-span arch bridge in the world.

Thank you Robert! But no, actually it was a 26-frame 360-degree panorama, just slightly cropped and deformed. Here is the original unaltered stitched image straight from the drone

Great image Lev. I had to google it to see images of what it really looks like. Yours is such an interestingly surreal image!

oh haha .. where i live there is a pacific highway too .. have travelled on it thousands of times .. suppose there are a heap of roads and highways named the same in different countries . but it took me aback initially when i saw Pacific Highway in your comment ..
its a fantastic point of view you have achieved with your drone .. and i'm loving the mist or low lying clouds .. they really add to the appeal of this image .. congratulations on fourth place .. you are such an all round photographer .. nothing seems to be a challenge for you .. unintentional pun there . ;)

One wild bit of poetic license here. Great fun. The locals would string you up. GL

It's actually Bixby Creek Bridge, but who's counting :-) I'm a long-time intimate of Big Sur, and I've never seen THIS angle on it :-)
