However I have not been able to find any pictures taken at sea/land level of that particular sand bridge
Hardly surprising, I'm afraid.
The patch of sea around Adam's bridge (at places you can wade out literally kilometres at low tide) is one of the most heavily patrolled and defended
in the world. There is a Sri Lankan naval blockade over most of it, and the Indian Navy and Coast Guard patrol the rest. The idea is to stop Tamil
Tiger rebels and their supporters in South India from crossing back and forth. Hardly anybody goes there without a very good, war-related reason, and
they're not allowed to take photographs.
There are some old photos from the years before the war (which began in 1983), but they're in books and people's photo albums, not on the Internet.
