Stowell Road Covered Bridge

Until last weekend, i had no idea that there was a covered bridge so close to home. Typically, I drive all over the state to take pictures of covered bridges in very remote location. There are 55 in the state, and I haven’t even photographed half of them.

Note: The bridges were originally covered to protect the road from rain and snow. The covering themselves are relatively inexpensive compared to the cost of building a bridge over a river. Building a cover over a bridge protected a town’s investment.

Lincoln Pond

For years I’d passed this pond on my way to work but somehow had never taken the time to stop there. The other morning, a bit of mist was on the pond. I decided to pull in. Following a nice little path around the pond, I came to this spot and made this image. Lincoln Pond is located in Amherst, NH.

The Ruth Ilene III

I made this image in Kittery, ME on an unseasonably warm day at the end of February. We had a carefree day driving out to the coast to meet some family at a nearby restaurant for lunch. It was just two weeks before everything changed due to COVID-19. It seems like it was made at a very different time.

Mason, NH

I made these images a couple of weeks ago in the town center of Mason, NH. Their gazebo is stunning. They still have their old schoolhouse but have added on to it to make a modern school. And their church is very pretty but has a lot of power lines in front of it, so you get to see the steeple on a beautiful morning.
