    What a sturdy looking covered bridge...seeing what appears to be a barrier at the end, is it just used for foot traffic now?

    The bridge in now part of a County park and integrated in a walking/jogging path . It is very sturdy though and I'm sure could handle more than foot traffic.

    And I just realized I didn't mention what an excellent shot it is.
    Appears to be available light which has to be low inside there, yet there's good detail, natural color, depth of field, etc.
    Nice !

    thanks!

    It was low light so I did a hand held HDR (3.0X bracketing). I was surprised how well the 3 shots lined up ( I use Photomatix software for HDR).
    I first wanted to do strictly B&W but I thought the brown color gave it a look reminiscent to the time period the bridge was in it's hey day.

    Well done.

    That bridge does not look like it is going anywhere anytime soon.
