"D"amaged Bridge


Photographed in Lake Chuzenji (中禅寺湖) in Nikko city. This lake is said to have appeared 20, 000 years ago when Mt. Nantai erupted and blocked the river. The exit of this lake is Kegon falls (華厳の滝). This 97m waterfall is too high for fishes to climb up. According to Futaarasan Shrine's record, there weren't any fish in Lake Chuzenji until 1878 when aquaculturing trout and the other species took place.

The bridge shown in the photo was damaged and it was too dangerous to walk. So the owner tied the entrance with strings.

If you want to see more photos of this beautiful lake, here we are.

        

This is a Outdoor Wednesday, Watery Wednesday, and ABC Wednesday entries. "D" is for "damaged".

  1. This scene is ethereal in its beauty. The little bridge is defying man by remaining upright in spite of its decaying status. I can just imagine standing out there on the end and diving in that gorgeous water. This is a great shot.

  2. seems to be a great place! There is in Romania a lake that was born by a land slide that blocked a river, it is Lacul Rosu ("The Red Lake")
    thank you, Yoshi

  8. The composition is perfect. I wonder if the owner has plans to rebuild his bridge/dock?

  11. I Like all the photos. If I had to choose I would pick the second because the first is more rigid in the straightness of the pier. I like the randomness of the second. Boom & Gary of the Vermilon River, Canada.

I look at this photo and I find myself saying "I wish I would have taken that". the turquoise sky, the violet mountains, and the rippled blue water makes it almost other-worldly. beautiful Yoshi! and you may have a Smile on a Stick most certainly. there are many styles, and my friend owns the company :)

  35. How beautiful that is. I visited Japan several years ago for a week, a whirlwind trip, teaching forensic nursing at several locations. One of the loveliest spots I visited was Akita, where I spent three days. It was so nice because my Japanese friends to use to Kakunodate and Lake Tazawa. That was such a beautiful place.
