Cedar Covered Bridge II

Posted by
Steve Rice (Olympia, United States) on 12 October 2009 in Architecture and Portfolio.

In general, I found it fascinating to note how low these bridges are and how different they are compared to those in Oregon. These were built decades before those still surviving in Oregon and are certainly from a different era. The horse and buggy (or wagon) were the dominant form of transport when these bridges were built and it shows.

Part of the Bridges of Madison County series.

I like the head-on viewpoint for this shot. Interesting comment as to the low clearance and the reason for it. A fine shot.

k@ from Paris, France

Looks like a door... outdoors ! And a challenging passageway too. As if another world (mistyrious) was beginning on the other side... But the mist seems to me more inviting than repulsive. Ok, I go ! ;/
