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.
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.
Today is Memorial Day in the United States. It’s the day we honor and mourn the military personnel who had died while serving in the United States Armed Forces. There are no parades this year, but still we remember.
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.
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.
