Holliwell Covered Bridge

Posted by
Steve Rice (Olympia, United States) on 9 October 2009 in Architecture and Portfolio.

Built in 1880, this 122 foot (37.2 meter) bridge of the Town Lattice truss type spans the Middle River in Madison County, Iowa, USA. The longest of the covered bridges in Madison County, it was featured in the movie, The Bridges of Madison County. It carries no vehicular traffic. However, it remains at its original site. Note the flat roof with the slight arch.

Part of the Bridges of Madison County series.

I like the down-below viewpoint for this shot of the bridge. I like the deep colors. It's interesting to see how they constructed that arched roof. Nice shot.

This angular bridge really gives very different effect of the whole scene. Love the way you've angled your shot.
