I wander over, and under, a lot of small bridges. In part this is because I wander the Delaware River a lot and have a need to cross it rather often. It is also true that I simply enjoy the unobstructed views that bridges provide. In a land of thick forests, a treeless view is a wonderful photographic opportunity.
In a lot of photos, and how I prefer to photograph them, the image is more about the landscape and the bridge accentuates that. Then there are times when I am simply enjoying the immense structure and I run with that feeling to make the images more along the lines of architectural photography.
The above image is an old train bridge photographed while I was on the Zane Gray Bridge. Both are in in Lackawaxen Pennsylvania and span the Lackawaxen River. This area attracts a lot of photographers looking to photograph bald eagles so if you enjoy that Lackawaxen is a nice place to wander.
Below are all images from my Bridges collection on Fine Art America.
The first two are Delaware River bridges: Roebling Aqueduct Bridge (connecting Lackawaxen PA and Minisink NY) and the Milford Bridge (connecting Montague NJ and Milford PA).
Below is a mix of my favorite DSLR and cell iPhone images of local bridges.
