span many a waterway in vermont.
this one brings cars and pedestrians from
one bank of the ottaquechee river to another in
woodstock.

When I think of Vermont two things come to mind; covered bridges and maple syrup...oh make that three...and BC!

I imagine Ottaquechee is a Native name? I love covered bridges since I walked a couple in Québec. This one is no exception. They are so poetic.

Look at the beautiful wood work on this bridge. Thank you for showing this lovely bridge. MB

This is a bit different from some covered bridges I've seen...very nicely done! You're fortunate to have these things. We're lucky if our old concrete bridges span the width of the water! Don't want to fall in, ya know, 'cause of the gators!

Re "pair of tweets" - Heh, heh!

Love the repeating patterns and the light and shadows of course!

Quintessential Vermont!!

A very cool bridge! I love the lattice and the light and shadows it creates.

Such bridges ALWAYS make me think of Meryl Streep and Clint Eastwood, in Madison County...What a marvellous wooden lace!

Hi again...thanks for your nice comment on Ocala DP. Yes, Lois bought a lithium quartz crystal which has special healing qualities, as a gift for a friend.

I did buy a couple of bumper stickers, which I will NOT put on our car, but hang somewhere in the garage, probably.

I still have to find a covered bridge that isn't a thing of beauty.

JM said...

I don't think we have any, so I find covered bridges truly fantastic! So is your photo!

Carraol said...

A great piece of design and that river name are very evocative. The light of your picture enhance the textures!

Amin said...

Good evening!

Nice capture of light and dark and the lattice work of the covered bridge.

Irina said...

Your photos are always on such a high level of taste, color and composition. But how can you keep this line so high in every post??? :-))

Birdman said...

Very cool shot. The pattern looks so delicate, but STRONG!

Marie-Noyale said...

I don't see enough of them in here and I miss them..
To get such a nice shot ou must like them too!

The covered bridges have a great deal of charm. Sometimes I've wondered why they are covered in the first place. Maybe because of all the snow you get, but then the road on either side isn't covered.
