I visited one of my regular haunts again yesterday-the old Orange-Millington Road also known as Gate 30 in New Salem. An iconic old stone keystone bridge crosses the Middle Branch of the Swift River just a short walk in from the road and I posted an image a while back seen here. It’s an amazing structure hand built by one man many decades past. Here is another view, very similar, but from midstream, the fallen tree has been removed and in slightly warmer conditions….although my feet were cold as I discovered my boots leak.This bridge has been photographed numerous times by pretty much every photographer who has been here, I imagine. I will probably shoot it a few more times myself in other seasons….and with even more water flowing….we’ve not had much rain in quite a while.
