Roseman Covered Bridge

Posted by
Steve Rice (Olympia, United States) on 27 October 2009 in Architecture and Portfolio.

Built in 1883, this 107 foot (32.6 meter) bridge of the Town Lattice truss type spans the Middle River in Madison County, Iowa, USA. It was featured in the movie, The Bridges of Madison County. It carries no vehicular traffic. However, it remains at its original site.

Part of the Bridges of Madison County series.

@Mahboubeh: Yes, it's very similar to the Hogback bridge. Both bridges were built by Mr. Benton Jones. Since they were built within a year of one another, I imagine he didn't vary the design very much.

I like the rustic red color of the bridge. Your low viewpoint gives a nice feel for the still waters beneath the bridge. A fine shot.

The inclusion of the stream really is a good idea, and the bridge looks great from this low angle.

Great vantage point and composition! The river's reflections add that "final" touch.

Very pretty with the reflection there. I like how you've shot it from below too- the bridge being high is a nice perspective.

This is one of your those shots where the angle was just right. Although I can't think of anyone that didn't have angle not so right.
