Photographer's Note

‘Kanchanaburi - Bridge on the River Kwai seen from the Chinese temple’


In the note with my previous photo I already wrote that the current bridge on the river Khwae (Kwai) that tourists now visit is actually a pretty ugly bridge and that I didn't have a single nice picture of it.

I still found one with the bridge on it, seen from the gardens of the Chinese temple, the Wihan Phra Phothisat Kuan Im.
The emphasis here is on parts of the colourful Chinese temple and the bridge can only be seen in the distance.
But this is my only photo of it that I still like. You know I like colours.

In the WS two pictures of the river Khwae (Kwai), taken in the vicinity of Kanchanaburi town and the bridge.

Addition on October 12, 2020:
An extra word after reading Loong's commentary:

Dragons whirl around the pole trying to reach the heaven above and bring good luck and wealth.
The sacred lotus on the right blooms with enlightenment and purity.
Some Chinese gods are depicted on the colourful wall.
