Yes, yes, I know: Osaka Castle, and this particular view of it, have both featured previously on this site. However, given the time of day, this rendering is different.

The Tczew road bridge in Poland was constructed between 1851 and 1857. At that time, with its 837 metres’ length, it was one of the longest bridges in the world. During WW2 it was blown up and rebuilt several times. The bridge was finally reconstructed in the late 50s. Today it stands out as an impressive steel construction with an unique spatial feeling inside, as well as a beautiful filtered light.
Damn…do you get as annoyed as I do when sources tantalise you with stunning images and withhold details of where the images was taken? Usually I avoid posting them; occasionally I can’t resist the temptation…

Windsor Castle is the oldest and largest inhabited castle in the world.(it covers an area of 13 acres/5 hectares.) It has been the family home of British kings and queens for almost 1,000 years. It is an official residence of Her Majesty the Queen, whose standard flies from the Round Tower when she is in residence. And is the only royal castle that has been in continuous occupation since the Middle Ages.
The castle was originally built by William the Conqueror after the Norman Conquest of 1066.It was one of a ring of nine castles built by him around London. William picked a superb site, a chalk outcrop rising to 100ft/30 m above the Thames River, and commanding splendid views over the countryside for miles around.
Windsor is still very much a working royal palace. The Castle is used regularly for ceremonial and State occasions. It is here that The Queen often hosts State Visits from overseas monarchs and presidents. Occasionally The Queen hosts a ‘dine and sleep’, when Her Majesty invites important figures, such as political leaders, Ambassadors, High Commissioners or the heads of Commonwealth nations, to have dinner at the Castle, before showing them around the grounds. The guests then spend a night at the Castle and depart after breakfast the following morning.
