No V3M I don't think that is it!

I have searched: 'river, bridges, France'. 'River, bridges, Alps' & 'River, bridges, sea'. The latter because on the last picture there seem to be waves on the far side of the bridge.

No luck.

with right question answer is simple.

my personal experience : I questioned myself. Too much white for so small turquoise ?

and answer was straight ahead: Because......

Alps is a clue in good direction, bridge is just on picture where we catch the best possible ratio between turquoise and white? bridge could be a clue but not significant.

so question remains:
The name of road,that swings around turquoise water ,not lake,not sea(obviously)

and if you ask to give mark for that route : "A"
Either the road under question or regional road,that we used.

That is it time for sundowners. We will let Lady Sirikit work on it overnight. After all it was targeted at her

"turquoise and white colors" probably refers to the water (implying deep with glacial runoff???) and snowy mountains (in winter).

It could refer to the national flag. Kazakhstan. Argentina, San Marino, Greece, the United Nations , flags fit the bill in terms of mountains, but a quick search isn't promising.

Plus, why are we asked to name the road? It looks European.

Searching yields the Pyrenees, Tortes National Park, and Maurico Lake, Spain, which I'd like to visit:

It is a Dam in the Alpine area of Europe.

Sirikit Special....Queen Sirikit Dam posted earlier.

Too much white for so little etc.... lots of snow for little water. A dam straight ahead, possibly named after a Queen. eg Liberace Dam

not Spain...
Alps, snow is good direction also,but better say precipitation,is further clue.

Sikirit once gave comment that Danube ( read it twice DANUBE) was so boring and non inspired. OMG! since than I have looked for Sikirit special.
best regards,

after this challenge I will prepare "11 rivers" challenge. that will be interesting...

I think it is in Serbia or northern Roumania.

A1 motorway near Iron gate dam between Serbia and Romania.

As I am on SINGAS ignore list, can someone post my answer.

not even close.

The difference between standard volume of two rivers is 1000 times ,minimum.
River is so small that I couldn't find a name,so the name of road is question.

@Ignore list member,
If you believe that Alps are part of Serbia,than I will consider to pay round .

It looks rather like some of the parts of the river which flows into the Med forming the border between Italy and France, heading inland from Ventimiglia up towards Tende.

Came across this which may connect to the turquoise and too much white aspects.

Effect of Danube River dam on Black Sea biogeochemistry and ecosystem structure

Nature 386, 385 - 388 (27 March 1997)
CHRISTOPH HUMBORG*, VENUGOPALAN ITTEKKOT†, ADRIANA COCIASU‡ & BODO V. BODUNGEN*

* Baltic Sea Research Institute, Seestrasse 15, 18119 Rostock, Germany
† Institute of Biogeochemistry and Marine Chemistry, University of Hamburg, Bundesstrasse 55, 20146 Hamburg, Germany
‡ Romanian Institute for Marine Research, Boulevard Mamaia 300, 8700 Constanta, Romania

Rivers contribute significantly to the pollution and eutrophication that have caused drastic changes to the ecosystem of the Black Sea1–3. Although damming is known to affect riverborne nutrient loads, and thus riverine ecosystems, evidence for significant effects in open coastal waters is sparse4–6. Here we present long-term data sets of water and nutrient discharge from the River Danube to the Black Sea. These data reveal a reduction in the dissolved silicate load of the river by about two-thirds since dam constructions in the early 1970s. A concomitant decrease in wintertime dissolved silicate concentrations by more than 60% was observed in central Black Sea surface waters. The consequent changes in silicon to nitrogen ratio of the Black Sea nutrient load appear to be larger than those caused by eutrophication alone, and seem to be responsible for dramatic shifts in phytoplankton species composition from diatoms (siliceous) to coccolithophores and flagellates (non-siliceous). Our results strongly suggest that the damming of the Danube has been instrumental in causing the observed changes in Black Sea surface waters[/B]3,7–9, and that the large number of dams in operation around the world today could similarly affect the food web structure and biogeochemical cycling in coastal seas.

Alps and precipitation, to summarize clues...

A slow and winding river thread...

The ratio of white (dry ground) to blue (river/water) implies unusual lack of precipitation upstream.

Hmmm... If the alpine snow packs don't get enough precipitation, or it melts before Spring (or evaporates), you get less fresh seasonal water for transportation etc.

v3m.....the bank appears to be man made, suggesting the overflow for a Dam.

Rule3 -- I meant the foreground between the nearby scrubby plants and the far side of the river.

SINGAPURCANAC:

You mean too much precipitation? As in there might be an ice dam blocking the river?

Those can be nasty when they let go, as it's usually sudden.

An ice dam blocked a lake during the volcanic winter of 1816. Val de Bagnes, Switzerland, suffered catastrophically in 1818 when it broke.

Are those gondola cables and towers going up the mountainside?

No dam, and if there is a dam it is not relevant.

Alps and precipitation. A lot of it, is final clue.

Are we, by chance, talking of the Southern Alps in New Zealand?

Please forget that I made this stupid comment! Rather than deleting it, I am leaving it as a monument to my lack of brain functionality before breakfast!
