bridge of vines Iya valley japan

I do believe this is one of only three remaining bridges made of vines in Japan. Thankfully we were assured that it had been re-vined in Feb. Very scary crossing it due to what seemed to be a 7 inch gap between planks. I was holding onto my husbands arm, then he kindly said to me "can you stop digging your nails into my arm" :)

That rain drop really annoyed me too, but no amount of cloning could fix it, it actually made it worse, so I left it. Also I took similar photos with my Canon but the rain spots were more prominent in those shots than my phone images, so I chose the lesser of two evils. I have to admit though this phone takes awesome images IMHO - this is the original Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_1214950.jpg

Very,very pretty. I can almost hear rushing water. But this is another scary bridge. There are a surprising number of them in this challenge.

What a great scene/location. Decent shot. Something seems off about focus, might be too much post-processing (contrast, sharpening, compression, etc.). It looks like there is a rain drop or other substance on the lens; just left of where the bridge vines cross, right on the bridge. Otherwise, good stuff.
