My photo club recently spent a Saturday photographing covered bridges in Maryland & Pennsylvania. Weather was nice and we managed to visit 4 bridges. This was the only one in Pennsylvania. Hope you enjoy it.

Very nice photo Tom, I like the reflection of the bridge also. These have a certain romance to them don't they, we saw quite a few of the covered bridges when we were in Oregon and Washington. This one looks to be in great shape. Did you get an interior shot?

Yep, I did, even got one with an autograph. I should have posted these with the original post. These 3 were taken with my Tamron 28-75mm.

thanks Jim for posting, this appears to be of newer construction or possibly rebuilt/stabilized. We visited a covered bridge in Oregon and it was built in the 1940's if I remember right, I was just surprised because I thought they were built/popular years before then

Great shot! I love these covered bridges but they are all well south of me. I do like seeing the shots of the interior also - such craftsmanship!

You should add this one to the special bridge section:

I love photos of covered bridges, and these are perfect ones. Very nice job - the very rich colors really hit the spot for me.
