Q7350 : Bridge of Ross [2]

Bridge of Ross [2]
Bridge of Ross [2]
The bridge as seen from the west side with a wave crashing through. The arch is formed from a near semi circular fold in the Namurian sandstone, the underside of the bridge being worn smooth by wave action. From here the top of the bridge looks rather thin, and one can speculate that it will only be a matter of time before it collapses [but not while I am walking over it].
