Dong Bridge

Guizhou, 2006

This is a Wind and Water Bridge built by the Dong ethnic minority people in Guizhou province of China. I find it interesting that the first one I posted (here) ranks as one of the top ten viewed pages on my blog.

Linking with Sunday Bridges and Scenic Sunday.

Beautiful bridge - and I looked back to the first one you posted as well. What pride those artisans have taken in their work to build such wonderful structures.

Francisca, I can see why your previous posting has become so popular. This is not your ordinary run of the mill bridge.

I knew I recognised the name!

It is a very impressive bridge. I love that it is not just functional. There is artistry and imagination gone into its construction.

It deserves to be highly rated. This is no ordinary covered bridge. Beautiful and very unusual.

I love how the sunlight is sprinkling down, too. Wow!

Great looking bridge - sorry to hijack your comment box but I tried last night and this morning to put my bridge post on the linky at San Francisco Bay DP but I can't click on any links on the site - you and a few others seem to have managed it - I've tried using Firefox and Chrome but none of the links work so I can't even leave him a comment - I've no problems with any other site - perhaps if you can comment there you can let Louis know there are problems - I suspect I'm not the only one having problems - cheers.

I can see why it's a popular subject on you blog - I've never seen a bridge like this, it's amazing.

What a gorgeous bridge, neat capture.

Kaori said...

I'm always astounded by the beauty of architecture built years ago. I love how this looks against the green mountains. Is it just for pedestrian crossing or do cars cross it, too?

Crafty Green Poet said...

what a wonderful bridge - beautiful setting too!

tapirgal said...

It's breathtaking, and so exotic for those of us in the West. No wonder the first was popular. They are both lovely photos.

Pat Tillett said...

Wow! It'a an amazing structure. I don't doubt it gets a lot of hits.

It's a sheer beauty Francisca!

Ms. Becky said...

awarewriter said...

Could it be because it's an excellent photograph of a fascinating bridge? Yep -- very nice Francisca.

Prompt for an exotic novel eh? Or perhaps a short story? Now you've gotten me thinking. Thanks.

Kala said...

Gorgeous image - looks like it's out of a travel magazine!

EG Wow said...

It's a beautiful bridge. Lots of people are fascinated by anything Chinese and hey! You've actually BEEN THERE! :))

What a beautiful bridge!

When I lived in Jackson, my top visited page was Gatti Town Pizza. I think alot of people were searching for the address or phone number on the internet. :)

Evelyn said...

I am not surprised - it's such a beautiful structure, in a beautiful setting.
