Newfield Covered Bridge
Post date: Jan 27, 2015 2:39:07 AM
Just south of Ithaca, NY stands one of the remaining covered bridges still in use in New York State. Here are some shots I took on a cold January weekend, with friend and fellow photographer, Rod Best. Enjoy!
A tip I give my students, take photos of any information signs so you can refer to them later!
A grand ole bridge spanning 115 feet over a deep gorge carved by Cayuga Creek.
A huge laminated tension support that helps carry the load.
A close-up of the intricate engineering and carpentry involved. Those really are wooden pegs at the bottom!
A lovers' plaque commemorating some couples in history, and some more recent additions.
I urge everyone to get out and find their local covered bridges - they are wonderful to explore and photograph!
