Greenfield-Hancock Covered Bridge

This bridge was difficult to shoot because the light at either end was not great and the riverbank was not accessible for taking pictures from the side. After playing around with it for a bit, I made this HDR image of the bridge’s interior. Look at that post and beam work. Isn’t it beautiful? Using HDR allowed the interior of the bridge to be lit without overexposeing the opening at the far end. There is an exterior photo below.

Yesterday, we visited Hancock Shaker Village on the Massachusetts border with New York. They are a Christian sect founded in the 18th century. Few of them remain. They are known for living simply and for their craftsmanship. The Shaker village in Hancock Massachusetts is now preserved as a museum.
