Where your chin hits the road. Wow! Great turtle's eye perspective. Bet you had to get out there and snap it quickly.

Yes, over here we call it "frog's perspective" There is much stone work behind the tunnel and it's made after the classic rules - Really hard work. Fine picture. What a 3Dpuzzle to make the stones fit together

Thanks,

Walter, fortunately it was early on a weekday morning so traffic was very light. I didn't want to lie there too long though.

Torgny, the stone work is what drew me to the tunnel. I really appreciate the craftsmanship it took to build it.

By the way, I've also heard it referred to as "snail's perspective."
