Cattal Bridge - Coppermine - 6525.jpg
Cattal Bridge

These old style bridges were the most modern things on the roads at one time, and its surprising how many of them are still in use. Even carrying big A roads in places. Some of them are 3 and 400 years old. This one carries an unclassified road north west of York.

A14 Girton

Looking west from the A1307 towards the diverge between M11 and A14(N) traffic. M11/A14(N) can be seen crossing the A14/A428 up ahead. Streetlight replacment at the junction, as well roadworks up ahead on the A428(E) give a Sabristic feel to the whole scene!

Mancunian Brutalism - Coppermine - 6388.jpg
Mancunian Brutalism

Not a Photo, but a painting on which there was a thread in the forums.

It is based on a photo from 1967 showing Mancunian Way�the A57(M) and the surrounding effect of the brutalist architecture that scarred many cities at the time...

State Route 49 winds its way down into a river valley somewhere between Yosemite and Lake Tahoe.

Maybe not great for PotM, but great driving :)

The A4 Portway passing under the Clifton Suspension Bridge at Bristol - taken by 'Squirrel'. I just thought this was a stunning picture.

A87 Skye Bridge - Coppermine - 6387.jpg
A87 Skye Bridge

I like the way the curve of the bridge is in sympathy with the curves in its environment.

An unusual POTM entry, as you can't see the actual road! But it should crop down well for the banner image.

Winner - July 2006
