    Well my friends.
    This week we're looking for bridges.

    Any kind of bridges - small ones and big ones. Built of wood, stone, steel, concrete or ropes.

    Here are my examples:

    (1) Stone bridge from Madeira

    (2/3) The "Hacker Brücke" - Hacker bridge in Munich - built of steel

    I hope that your hometowns have a bridge nearby.

    Interesting theme, and great set of examples Klaus! You're making me wonder, yet again, how to find a good location to shoot the Zakim bridge in Boston. Not sure if I can get down there, or find a good shooting location...

    Paul, it doesn't matter if you can't shoot the Zakim bridge. As far as I know there are a lot of covered wooden bridges in NH.

    Regards

    Yeah, I've always been interested in Azkim, but don't know where I can go, to get a good view of it... been haunting me... :)

    About 5 years ago, I decided to try to photograph all of the covered bridges in southeastern Ohio. Although there are quite a few catalogued sites, I quickly learned that many of the old structures are simply up on blocks in various farm fields. However, several have been restored to at least appear functional. This one spans Fetter’s Run which flows behind the Lancaster branch of Ohio University. [I may have shown this bridge before, but this is a fresh shot.]

    Hi Bob, that's a wonderful example of these so typical bridges.
    Well shot.

    Natural bridge?

    Well, not quite. The power company was here last week to trim and cut dead trees that were too close to the substation connector lines that cross our property. They felled one of the trees across one of the streams that flows through that area. There are already signs that the squirrels and maybe coons are using this “bridge”.

    Funny Bob :):):).
    Yes it counts - it's a pathway over water.

    Kind regards

    Very nice, Dave. [Are there any fish in that brook?;)]
     
  15. Thank you Bob. I'm not sure about the fish. Its mostly private land around the pond and the stream so I've never had the opportunity to fish there.

    Nice shots Dave! What's the generator on the left for, I wonder?

    One of our yearly car club outings is to go to Parker's Maple Barn, during the Maple sugar season. Today was the day, only 7 degrees out, but I ventured down there for breakfast and sightseeing. On the way back, right in Mason is an old covered bridge. Here is a small replica that is near the road on one side of the road:

    That's a nicely maintained structure. I wish more of ours were in that good a shape.
     
  19. Thank you Paul. I think the generator is connected to some electrical gear at the bottom left of the dam and perhaps for the lights
    and camera on the dam.

    Hi Paul,
    at the first look the second pictures scared me. Was the bridge leaning to the right?
    Second look made it clear. Interesting angle of photography.

    Thanks for showing
    Klaus
