I love bridges and piers, cant get enough of them but there is one bridge that I particularly like. It does look better in colour I have to say but when I was looking for a bridge for this week’s entry I wondered what it might look like in black and white. It is a distinctive shape which would lend itself to monochrome so I gave it a go. What do you think?
This lovely bridge is called the Huc Bridge and is on Hoan Kiem Lake in the historical centre of Hanoi. It bridges the shore to Jade Island on which sits the Temple of the Jade Mountain built in honour of a 13th century military leader. The bridge was built in the 18th century and is made of wood painted red.
It happens to be a very popular tourist attraction and on the day of my visit there were swarms of people, literally not a second went by without someone there. My best angle was from the shore taken looking towards the temple to hide most of the people. I was lucky enough to achieve this but for only a short few seconds.
