Weekly Winners #34 - Sep/28 to Oct/04

 
CanadaI missed the Weekly Winners post last week! I was tired, and I had just come back from my trip. I thought I didn't have anything to post, until I realized I had those pictures I had taken on my way back home. You see, I was driving on I-219 near Springville, NY, when I saw this huge bridge I drove on. Right next to it, they were building an even bigger bridge, this one for trains. It was so impressive that I actually stopped ahead and came back walking to take a few pictures. Unfortunately, my camera ran out of batteries after the first shot, so the rest were taken with my cell phone.
 
Hopefully, you will see the bridge over a 50+ metres cliff, and a crane that is easily the biggest I have ever seen. I suffer from acrophobia, so it was really hard for me to take these pictures standing on a bridge that had a fence that was as high as my knees...

Me perdí el Weekly Winners de la semana pasada! Estaba cansado, y recién había llegado de mi viaje. Pensé que no tenía nada decente para postear, pero luego me acordé de esas fotos que había sacado camino a casa. Verán, estaba manejando en la ruta I-219 cerca de Springville, NY, cuando vi un puente enorme (bueno, más bien altísimo) sobre el cual pasé. Justo al lado, estaban construyendo un aún más imponente puente ferroviario. Era tan impresionante que paré más adelante y volví para sacar algunas fotos. Desafortunadamente, me quedé sin baterías luego de mi primera foto, así que saqué el resto con mi teléfono.
 
Con suerte, podrán ver un puente sobre un acantilado que está a más de 50 metros abajo, y una grúa que es sin dudas la más grande que yo haya visto. A mi no me gustan para nada las alturas, así que fue difícil sacar fotos parado en ese puente con una baranda que apenas si me llegaba a las rodillas...

This is the good one... Doesn't make justice to the altitude - Esta es la foto buena... no le hace justicia a la altura

I guess the cell phone pictures are decent enough... - Tal vez las fotos del celular sean lo suficientemente decentes...
