    what a stunning view those folks have!

    You can even perceive the slight tilt of the towers to account for the curvature of the earth.

      You’re right that the design of this enormous bridge had to take into account the curvature of the earth, but anything you’re seeing in the photo is just a result of the camera angle. The tilt of one tower relative to the other is imperceptible to the eye: their tops are only 1 5/8 inches farther apart than their bases.
