Suspension cables on the gnomen of Sundial Bridge.

The Sundial Bridge is very beautiful because of its aqua green, opaque glass deck, strips of granite, and smooth white imported Spanish tile. The bridge is unique because of its design. The 217-foot pylon acts as the gnomen of a sundial, casting its shadow on a giant, tile covered dial
