Snow Covered Bridge

I probably shouldn't post my pictures on here as they don't measure up to what I've seen from others, but I recently upgraded from a K10D to a KP and acquired a 18-135 lens from a forum member, so I had to take them out yesterday and catch some pictures of a recent snow on some covered bridges. I'm not afraid of constructive comments/criticism.

That’s a very nice shot,please don’t be put off from posting more. There are far too many members of this Forum who’ll talk until the cows come home but don’t put they’re money where their mouth is by sharing their photos

PS I might have cropped it slightly to lose the telegraph wire running across the top right of the frame.

Thank you for the encouragement, Timb64 and mtngal. I've shot a lot of pictures over the years, but still feel inadequate when I come to a place like this. But, as I do enjoy viewing other people's photos, I should contribute mine, as feeble as they are. It was, for the most part, a pretty day in NE Ohio, but this area is subject to lake effect snow squalls at any time. This road is not plowed in winter, so I was driving through 12-14" of snow anyway, then this started:

It's good to see some regulars posting photos here again. I am working back through all 128 pages of this thread, and have enjoyed many of the pictures I have seen. I tend to take "what my eyes see" type pictures rather than making art, so it's refreshing to see so many other types of pictures. We have not had much snow this winter here either. So I've made it a point to get out when we do get some. I spent most of last Friday in NE Ohio to take advantage of their covered bridges and other winter sights.

Nice shot.... lazy question from me.... why do they enclose the bridges? (prevent snow building up maybe?).... I'm from a sun burnt land....

If I understand correctly, there are 2 main reasons: as the bridges are made out of wood, protecting them from rain and snow greatly extended their life. Also, adding a roof allows for truss type construction for greater strength and longer spans. I think the real reason was to give future photographers something to take pictures of.

Iím feeling so unimaginative when it comes to photography right now. I keep coming back here to seek inspiration, but for some reason, itís not quite catching on quite yet. Iíve taken pretty pictures:



Which was the sunset before an unusual event - a thunderstorm In the Arizona desert.

Not yet sunrise yesterday:



Looking out at the landscape on a hike.



Keep posting your photos, it helps keep me taking photos.
