The Kintai-Kyo bridge is a magnificent sight that I captured in this photo. It is situated in the city of Iwakuni, in the Yamaguchi Prefecture of Japan.
The bridge is a wooden masterpiece that crosses the Nishiki River. It dates back to 1673, when the third lord of Iwakuni, Kikkawa Hiroyoshi, built it after reading a book about the West Lake in China. The bridge has endured many natural and man-made disasters and is regarded as one of the three great bridges in Japan. It is also a national treasure and a beautiful spot to visit.
I had a wonderful time staying near the bridge at night, and I hope to go back in the spring when the cherry blossoms are at their peak.
To create this photo, I applied some editing effects in Color Efex Pro and one of my very old Lightroom Presets. I have been working on a lot of new Lightroom presets lately that you might like if you’re into the vintage flair.
This photo uses a wider lens that gives a different view from the longer lens photo I took of this bridge.
