Yeah, I know! That happens sometimes when a bridge gets very old and has never been taken care of. Soon will become a death trap.
Yes, there are a lot of trees surrounding the Rocky Ford Bridge. There are also very steep banks under the bridge which makes it hard to find a nice level surface.
Vegetation! Is there a bunch of trees and thornbushes growing around it?
Yes, the Rocky Ford Bridge is a favorite of mine as well. I doubt I will be able to visit it anytime soon however. That bridge can be rather hard to photograph with all of the vegetation surrounding it.
Yeah! Some bridges are too far away from where I live. This bridge is close to where I live. A bridge similar to this one is the South Cottonwood River on the road right into Hillsboro. That's another one that I can photograph.
But I have been longing to see new photos for the Rocky Ford Bridge in Lyon County. It is a very interesting bridge, but only has eight photos. It crosses the Cottonwood River east of Emporia.
Hey Sheldon, it's pretty cool that you're going out there and getting some pics of bridges that are 60 years of age and older; esp. with this bridge as there are fewer of these nowadays. You just need to go out there and do more of that and find your method of bridge photography that will make the viewers happy. While I can provide you with a few tips, what you do is your baby. Let me know if you need anything from me and I'll see what I can do. Good luck and keep on doing what you are doing. ;-)
Sheldon adding photos taken from the field would be a good thing. You can read about bridges, see the images of others, and add street views galore but that pales in comparison to seeing the real thing up close, in person.
Sheldon, you may have different tastes in bridges than most here but as long as you can, keep plugging on, gain an appreciation, see more of the countryside. I have some photos of bridges that may interest you I will try to post or send when I am feeling a bit better.
I saw that Sheldon added new photos for this bridge.
