Waterloo Bridge – Warner, NH

From the Dalton bridge, it was a short drive to the Waterloo Bridge which is one of the older bridges dating back to 1840.  It’s been rebuilt twice, once in 1857 and again in 1970.  The state did work to improve it again in 1987.

For some reason, I only came away with three images of this bridge.  I spent a lot of time there but most of it was trying to take a photograph downriver where water flows over a small dam.  It would have been a pretty image, but the brush was overgrown, and the riverbank was steep.  There was no way to get the image without swimming or a boat.

    Your post is reminding me of a favorite Kinks song, Waterloo sunset! These are great pictures Chris. I imagine shooting through the bridge is tricky, exposure wise. You have it down it appears. Thank you so much for sharing your progress on this cool project!

      I don’t know that song. I’ll look for it on YouTube. I’m glad your enjoying the series. The secret shooting many of the interior images is to take bracketed shots and then process them as HDR images in Lightroom. Honestly, it takes the computer a long time to process the images but it’s worth the extra editing time to get the quality images. Have a great evening Sandra.

        You’re next level Chris! That sounds like magic you’re dabbling in: brackets, hdr, Lightroom. I love your dedication to the craft! Have a good night!

        I admit, I use a bit of Voodoo to get my photos to look good. No, it’s actually not that hard to use Lightroom and the results are spectacular. What do you use to edit? Have a great day. (It’s now almost morning here.)

        I think I’ve tried that program it’s very complex. I use CropSize on my iphone and occasionally I use Snapseed. Glad to hear you’re getting some sunshine today! I hope you have a great day!

        I took a course at a local photo studio got Lightroom. The trickiest part is file management. If you ever want to learn, I could teach you on Zoom. Adobe charges $9.99 a month. I’m wrapping up an early shoot and grabbing lunch. I hope you’re having fun today.

        You are so generous! That’s very kind of you. I may take you up on that sometime. I’m on a learning curve for work right now. Trainings continue next week. Glad to hear you had time to make photos today! We went for a walk early this morning. Staying in and out of the heat today. Have a great night, Chris!

        One can only stand so much training. I’m glad you go your walk in early. I got most of my location shoots done before it got hot today. I’m planning on a home day tomorrow to beat the heat. You have a great night also., Sandra.

        I so appreciate the offer! I do not intend to sound ungrateful! I am not very good at multi tasking so once I’m up and running on this new endeavor I should have the mental capacity to take in a new skill. I do think I’ve had a look at that program and it was very intimidating. I’m also not sure I know enough about photography in general to operate that kind of program fully. Just wanted to say thank you again. You are very kind to offer!

        No worries. That’s okay. I understand. We all have only so much bandwidth. It sounds like you’re in a really busy time with work plus you’ve got your family. It’s challenging to fit it all in.

    I love the timber on the inside😍. I have been pouting about not being able to travel and your posts have inspired me to go see what I can find in my own state. These photos are so amazing. I look forward to seeing the next ones.

      Thank you. Honestly, I’m not sure that I would have attempted this project had it not been for coronavirus because it’s such a large undertaking and there are usually other things I want to photograph. But not this year. It’s a great time to see what’s available locally. And tomorrow morning, I’m off to find more bridges. Have a great night.

    Okay – new idea for your next summer project: rent a boat and take pics from the bridges from the rivers they’re crossing!!😄😉
