Glass House Bridge

One would cross this glass house bridge I captured at twilight to get to a tiny island in the middle of a small, probably man-made, lake. The bridge can be found in a pretty park in Guilin, a city most famous for its location among the picturesque karst hills you see in the distance (and better seen here, here and here).

Guilin, 2007

Nice to see the willow trees at the side.

did they really make this of glass, no wonder Malaysians and Singaporeans want to visit Guilin.

Re: Roy Clement, surprisingly there were no insects. In our beaches, we get sand flies sometimes. Here? may be the ducks ate up the eggs?

Wow, that's some bridge! I think I'd probably spend more time on the bridge than the island :D

The bridge is beautiful, and the lake is lovely, but without the mountains in the background, this might just be a photo of manmade loveliness.
Wonderful, as usual, Francisca. I'm no longer surprised when you surprise me. ;~)
