Photographer's Note

Traveling north in Bosporus Streight, we meet the Fatih Sultan Bridge, also known as the Second Bosporus Bridge , is a bridge in Istanbul, Turkey spanning the Bosporus strait . The bridge is situated between Hisaru"stu" (European side) and Kavack (Asian side). It is a gravity-anchored suspension bridge with steel pylons and inclined hangers. The aerodynamic deck is hanging on double vertical steel cables. It is 1,510 m long with a deck width of 39 m. The distance between the towers (main span) is 1,090 m (World rank 2004: 11th) and their height over road level is 105 m. The clearance of the bridge from the sea level is 64 m, to allow passage to the aircraft carrier Enterprise and the ocean liner Queen Elizabeth II, the tallest ships afloat.
