Another Guizhou Bridge

This is the second bridge I post from the beautiful province of Guizhou in China. It may not be as unique or interesting as my earlier Wind & Water bridge; still the setting with the terraced rice fields is so serene, don't you agree?

yes, and the area except the bridge looks like a place we hiked in Banawe last year, which has a hanging bridge lovelier than that. And the sides of the mountains are all rice terraces. Happy Sunday Francisca.

I am not looking at the bridge, but those small stone structures, what are they?

Andy said...

I always find arched brides interesting to look at. Not a common sight in my part of Canada,

Well I think it's beautiful and is surrounded by beauty!

The scene resembles the Peak District in the UK -- apart from the terraced fields!

Kaori said...

The view is spectacular! And I think it's interesting how the bridge continues on after crossing the river...is there another river on the otherside? :D

This is a lovely scene and I like the photo for the asymmetrical look of the bridge (even though it's not, really!)

It's a wonderful scenery!

Beautiful field and it is serene -- they surely makes good use of the ground with that terraced hillside.

Very interesting bridge...and I agree with serene!

Have I mentioned before how inviting your profile pic is...your smile always says "welcome" or "hello" to me!!!

I think all of your photos are interesting, Francisca! You have been to so many places that I think of as exotic. :) The topography in this photo is indeed lovely.

Very serene, Francisca, and the water looks so cool and refreshing. I really like seeing the terraced fields. When I was a child, I read about terraced gardens and had a hard time imagining how it could be done. I remember spending a lot of time trying to figure it out, before going to the library to look it up.

This is a lovely scene. The whole earth is beautiful, I'm learning, not just a few parts of it!

Pat said...

Great perspective! The water just draws the eye to the bridge! I, too, like the tiers on the left and the little stone structures.

Francisca, it's so interesting that you personalized your blog link on the icon of the URL. I read one time how to do it on a web site, and have never done it, but I'd have no clue how to do it on a blogger site :)

It's lovely.

Gee, there is so much in China to explore. Nice fields.

ps. haha, no, not to learn English! But I am attending a drawing class (but not the reason I am in SF).

Ann said...

I was on the opposite bank of the river.

1990-1996, I went to Singapore as a faculty wife. My husband taught at the Nanyang Technological University.

1975-77, I studied at the university of Windsor in Canada.

I grew up in Sarawak, Borneo until I was 20.

The rest of the time, I lived in NZ.

The other places, I went for holidays.

So beautiful and yes, it looks so serene... I was wondering if you are traveling outside of your home in Manila still? & Do you speak Tagalog?

Blessings & Aloha!
Thank you for stopping by and I appreciate your kind comment about the art I do. Up until not that long ago, I have come to appreciate my middle name. :o)

What a gorgeous setting. This is one beautiful spot. The stone structures look like the hoodoos we build in our creek and beside the river. Such a sweet bridge...love the arches. Genie

Kate said...

The whole panorama with the bridge in the distance gives us a good feeling for the landscape.

Lisa said...

What a beautiful scenery. I love the green surroundings. Cool to my eyes.

I find the scenery takes away from the bridge. A beautiful shot!
