Bosphorus Bridge


Here's a great aerial view of one of the most important bridges in Istanbul, Turkey, compliments of contributor and pilot gokhanakman.  The subject is the Bosphorus Bridge, also known as the 15 July Martyrs Bridge. It spans the Bosphorus Strait between the western (European) and eastern (Asian) side of the great metropolis.  Completed in 1973, the bridge has a total length of about 1.55k meters (around 5.1k ft.).  It's the oldest and southernmost of the three bridges which now cross the Bosphorus Strait.
