Strength In Silence

The bridge is called Akashi-Kaikyo bridge, the longest span bridge in the world, located in Japan. When this bridge was constructing, a big earthquake happened. Although its magnitude was 7.3, this bridge was not damaged. When I saw this bridge, I felt that it was not only a large-scale bridge, but also there was great force of will of engineers. I could feel their will because I’m also an engineer. That's why I took this photo. So, in this photo, I want to express not only the strength of bridge but also the will of engineers, in contrast with gentle ocean waves and scudding clouds.
