About





























Covered Bridges
Covered bridges have a sense of nostalgia about them...one thinks of a simpler time. These structures, like lighthouses, are a credit to craftsman from years past.  Most bridges here are still in use, over 100 years after construction.
You won't find many covered bridges in the Pacific Northwest, but they're plentiful back East. As with most photographic destinations, you plan your trip for optimum conditions, as best you can, then work with whatever Mother Nature gives. Most images here, while taken under generally sunny skies, suffer from flat, midday lighting.  Still, I hope you enjoy the small sampling of these covered bridges.
