Own photo, circa August 2017. Anyone willing to take a guess?
[img snipped]

Here's a view from the opposite direction:
[img snipped]

Hmm. That looks weirdly familiar, so I'm sure it will be obvious in retrospect, but I got nothing.

(Also, MCRoads was technically next in line to post a photo since he got mine correct, so I will give him a chance to answer.)

I have no clue. I was going to post a picture of a bridge near me, but I like your bridge better, lol.

Somewhere in Cascadia. Route has a low number, halfway between two decently sized regional centers.

Somewhere in Cascadia.
I was looking around there prior to the clue, because of the mountain off to the side and the boreal forest surrounding the area. My guess is the Colwitz bridge on I-5.

Geographically you're a moderate distance away. It's also on a surface road.

Can you answer a yes/no question? If so, I'd like to ask if this bridge has since been reconstructed since 2017. I feel like I'm close to the answer.

US-12 bridge over the Sastop River in Sastop?

Whether a team makes the playoffs isn't comparable to whether they are above .500. Part of making the playoffs is getting the wins when you need them to get in, which Brady/Belichick always found a way to do. That's skill. Being above .500 or below .500 is just however things shake out. That's luck.

That one looks like a dual tied arch. Here's another hint: It's north of the border and on a route that is nominally east-west but is strictly north-south as it begins.

I guess index should still probably confirm, but even the trees match.

I haven't posted a new picture because the rules say the person posting the previous picture is to confirm.

Thanks.  I thought so, but I gave up trying to straighten out the sequence of events in my mind (straighten them out in my mind, not the events in my mind).

Good point. I'll defer to MCRoads in posting the next picture, then.

Well index can't be bothered to respond, so I say we just move on. No reason why this thread should be held up by one person not responding.

index hasn’t been online since 1:00 this morning, per the profile info, and it’s none of my business why not. My thought is—MCRoads has dibs on the next photo as far as I’m concerned, so let’s give it overnight. If there’s no new entry by the time I look at the forum while eating breakfast tomorrow morning, I’ll post one of the ones I have queued up and ready to go.

With neither index (who could confirm 1995hoo's correct answer) nor MCRoads (the OP and previous correct guesser) having logged in recently, 1995hoo going ahead with a new photo tomorrow morning seems reasonable.

As this situation points up, it doesn't make sense to require confirmation from the person that posted the photo, since there's no commitment to be here and people come and go on their own time. Unless anyone has a better idea, my suggestion would be that from now on, anyone can verify a correct answer.

You are correct. See, I knew this one was too easy. I took that picture on July 23, 2007, from the deck of Holland America's Veendam at the start of our Baltic Sea cruise (we had just left Copenhagen and were headed to Tallinn next). Hence why I said earlier that the Street View car wouldn't be able to duplicate the photo.

I have not been over the bridge-tunnel except insofar as the ship "passed over" the tunnel portion. Didn't have much time. We flew into Copenhagen the day before the cruise began, and when we got back there at the end we flew out later the same day.
