Vantage Point

The new Bhumibhol bridge over the Chao Phraya river is one of the highest vantage points for a panoramic view of Bangkok, so I paused my bike ride briefly to take advantage but didn't stay long as I have a feeling bicycles are not permitted on this huge structure which crosses the river twice.

The top picture well framed Ray...
your panorama turned out very well even if you were in such a hurry to get off of the bridge... four panels... good job....petersmile
Ray: There is a Panorama feature on the camera, Peter, but I have never used it!

nice job on the panorama, gives me a good view without me having to ride a bike smile
Ray: Ok...I'll be your legs & lungs in Bangkok, Elaine.
Great vantage point indeed Ray! I really like your pano.
Ray: It is one of the few high points in the whole city, Richard...a fun ride up the ramp, too!
Wow! And they say Texas does things big...

Great images to show this off!
Ray: It is rather large for a river bridge, Elizabeth...somewhere near 5km [that's 3 miles] long, I think.
An impressive panorama. Worth risking a run in with the law for
Ray: I thought so, too, Bill...I'll probably chance my luck and do it again soon as it is quite a good workout going up the ramp and quite a good buzz passing trucks going down the other side.

That's a bridge & a half Ray!
Ray: Because it crosses the river twice, Chris, its got up:down ramps in to middle for those poor saps who feel the need to be in or get out of the bit in the middle, so its a bit like 2 bridges rather than 1.5 of them.

It makes your eyes go funny if you look at all that yellow and black for too long Ray.
Ray: Possible you have identified the cause of unpredictable driving by the truckies on this bridge, Chad...there might be a PHD thesis for you in that...
