Eastern Belgium - pointduvue
Foamer Central! Over multiple decades, more pictures have been shot from this bridge than anywhere else in the area, probably than in any other area of Belgium. Like this one. It was downright unreasonable to expect the bridge to be devoid of fans on any beautiful day.

Few people actually shot the bridge itself, though, which is a pity as it's been replaced with this much larger structure in 2008 to make room for the catenary. During its construction in 1915, the self-supporting concrete technology used was groundbreaking.

Needless to say this angle is now a mess of supports and wires and just about useless. In better times (2004) 5521 brings a westbound junk freight up from Aachen as a hiker looks on.
