Akashi-Kaikyō Night View

Previously I shared an image of the Pearl Bridge from atop Mount Maya in the evening, well I finally got a chance to visit Maiko after sundown to get a closeup view. Visiting the bridge in the evening was a wonderful experience, quite, peaceful and relatively few people. The Akashi-Kaikyo bridge has a total of 1737 illumination lights and on the main cables three high light discharged tubes are mounted in the colors red, green and blue that can create a variety of combinations that reflect like a rainbow on the oceans surface. The long exposure I used to capture this image created a halo on the almost full moon, and an airplane that was passing overhead was turned into a dotted red line arched across the sky.
