Rainbow Bridge

Rainbow Bridge is not really what it's called, but I failed to note the name of this colorful bridge I captured in Kaiping, a town in the southern Chinese province of Guangdong, so it will have to do.

Kaiping, 2010

Today I am joining the fun at James' Weekend Reflections and Louis' Sunday Bridges. Why not join us?

A postscript: after reading the first dozen comments, I realized that of course all what you see here is a blue bridge. I forgot to mention that the colors change every five seconds - green, red, yellow, blue - so in my mind, it was a rainbow. Silly me.

It's a perfect name for the bridge, at least at night. With the light and the reflection, it's a double rainbow.

What a beauty! Colorful and dramatic and your name for it fits very well, especially for a mostly blue rainbow... Great reflection photo.

Kiitos Francisca kommentistasi.
Kirjoitellaan nyt sitten Suomeksi. Mutta ymärtävätkö muut lukijat blogissasi suomea? Olen koettanut tuoda blogiani mailman laajuisesti tunnetuksi, ja aika hyvin siinä olen onnistunutkin. Muiden blogissa vierailut ovat antoisia, kun näin pääse tutustumaan muiden maiden kultuuriin ja ihmiten eloon. Toivon että te vierailijat jotka olette käyneet minun Teuvon kuvat blogissa olette saaneet jotain pientä iloa siitä kun olette katselleet ottamiani valokuvia.
Oikein hyvää syksyn jatkoa kaikille ja varsinkin Sinulle Francisca kun olet ahkerasti käynyt katsomassa blogiani.

Hi Francisca,
Answering your question I actually was travelling a few days ago, in october.

The name was very fitting and I like the way you have cropped it.

PS Thank you for the comments:-)
I never post anything larger than 800px horizontally, but if I had done you would clearly have seen the noise etc.
