How many hard to reach bridges do you want? i also have a drone if you ever want to meet up and bridge hunt. im starting to create a bunch of new bridge profiles for the DFW area so keep checking for newly uploaded bridges. you can also check out my website www.sharkoman.com for pictures of bridges. ill eventually post those pictures on this website.

Thanks for the reply, I'm going to get down in that area before long and see what shots I can get of that one

If you are looking for bridges closer to the Metroplex, this is a long abandoned bridge of high significance that has not been photographed for many many years. Its technically on private property but the way you worded your question it sounded like you enjoyed a challenge.

Looks pretty cool but for a six hour drive each way I'd need a gig booked out there. I've absolutely tried to daisy chain some gigs together where I can do something at low cost for clients along the way in exchange for the opportunity for me to explore like that

Here's one in Texas, if you're asking for Texas-specific bridges https://bridgehunter.com/tx/hansford/ri---hannas-draw/

Looking around for hard to access bridges to photograph. Open to suggestions
