Millau Bridge

When I received this images from my friend's email, I was totally amazed by this structure. They said this, the Millau Bridge, was included to the list of the "Seven Wonders of the World". According to Wikipedia: The Millau Viaduct (French: le Viaduc de Millau) is a large cable-stayed road-bridge that spans the valley of the River Tarn near Millau in southern France. Designed by French bridge engineer Michel Virlogeux and English architect Norman Foster, it is the tallest vehicular bridge in the world, with one mast's summit at 343 metres (1,125 ft) — slightly taller than the Eiffel Tower and only 38 m (125 ft) shorter than the Empire State Building. The viaduct is part of the A75-A71 autoroute axis from Paris to B├ęziers. It was formally dedicated on 14 December 2004 and opened to traffic two days later.
