North Fork Yachats Covered Bridge

Posted by
Steve Rice (Olympia, United States) on 17 September 2009 in Architecture and Portfolio.

Built in 1938, this 42 foot (12.8 meter) bridge of the Queenpost truss type spans the North Fork Yachats River in Lincoln County, Oregon, USA. It has a 10 ton (9.1 metric ton) load limit. Note the faded red color.

Part of the Covered Bridges of Oregon series.

Another splendid image! I love the composition and natural beauty. If I were you, I'd crop an inch or so from the top, to make it more impactful...

Another fine bridge to share with us. I enjoy seeing these bridges very much. This one has a special effect in that the opening at the end of the bridge has the effect of making that scene seem extra bright - gets lots of attention. It's just contrast I suppose, but very effective. Nice shot.

Very beautiful green frame today for this one, splendid also.
It's amazing that the reds of yesterday were from the spring.
Thanks for telling.

Hi Steve,

Thanks for your comments, I appreciate it.

I like your bridge series, simple and elegant.

I had a look through your archives and had a look at your Japan shots, I liked your work from Hiroshima, hopefully I will be traveling down there soon.

Beautiful picture. Such a lovely view through the bridge on that green shiny trail :)
should I expect to see Meryl Streep and Clint Eastwood in next post of bridges from Iowa ? I wish :) One of my fav films :)

Very lovely photo Steve. I can just imagine riding my bike down this lane one summer afternoon and approaching the bridge in such this way. Very nicely done. :)
