I thought we were guessing highways (as in, the junction of whatever and whatever in Cape Town)....

It could be a New York area parkway... but the picture is really small, the skyline looks somewhat European, but it's too small to get a clue about where it is. There aren't too many six-lane parkways in Westchester County. Maybe it's the Sprain Brook Parkway?

Not the New York area. Sorry about the size. I'll see if I can enlarge it, but the original's not mine. The landmark would be very recognizable to certain people.

That's better!

Well, I'm out for a bit. I look forward to identifying a winner later. :-)

Right. (Well, if we want to be fussy, Arlington, Virginia, across the river from Washington.)

Right, and more specific. I think you're the winner. Honorable mention to Makaveli6, particularly for being a nice guy.

Right. I went to (in the sense of studied at and graduated from) Georgetown, actually. I can still name some of those buildings. The light-colored stone, or concrete, or whatever it is, that you can spot left of center is Key Bridge.

The exact spot would be about here: http://maps.google.com/maps?hl=en&ll...,0.013711&z=16

I was expecting Nerdly Dood to get it. Or Chris.

Now, a serious question that's been bothering me while I've been road-tripping all day: did I just violate someone's copyright? (And implicate SSC?)

Cool one, I wouldn't expect such tunnels along A4.
