New England 5: Covered bridge


New England is famous for its covered bridges. Having read 'The Bridges of Madison County' and seen the movie, (yes, I know that's in Iowa), I have a romantic notion of them and was keen to see and photograph some. The limitations of a group tour meant that I wasn't able to see more than a couple and they were not the most authentic versions either, so I didn't really tick that box in the end. However, this pedestrian bridge in Stowe, Vermont was quite attractive. I feel sure it is there primarily as a tourist attraction; it looked relatively new.

  2. Say it quietly - there's nothing really old in the States. Did I just say that!

  3. Some of these buildings are over 25 years old! Never mind -- the play of light and shadow is beautiful -- well captured!

  4. Yes, it is quite attractive and you photographed it well, but this particular bridge is only there for tourists. It is too bad that you didn't get a chance to see and photograph a real covered bridge.

  6. Like you, each time I see such a bridge I now think of the Movie with C. Eastwood! This one is really lovely, no matter it's a "real old one" or not!
