Photographer's Note

This is the very beautiful bridge connecting the Greek Peloponnese to the mainland across the Gulf of Corinth. It was completed in 2004 -- a week before the Athens Olympic Games began -- and received all sorts of engineering awards throughout the world, including the American Society of Civil Engineers' Outstanding Civil Engineering Achievement Award. This bridge has immense shock absorbers, or "dampers" to help it survive seismic activity, which is prevalent in the area.
