Threatening storm clouds were gathering over the old historic Arch Street Bridge in Williamport, Pennsylvania, in late fall.
This span across the Susquehanna river is no longer there. It was demolished recently. Construction of the new bridge began in the fall of 2010 and has been completed in spring of 2013. I have been photographing this old bridge for years, to have a permanent record of how beautiful it was.
The old Arch Street Bridge connects the city of Williamsport, Pennsylvania to the borough of Duboistown, across the west branch of the Susquehanna River. This bridge was listed in Historic Bridges of the United States. This was the first and only span into Duboisetown, constructed in 1923. The bridge was recently demolished and has been replaced by a much less interesting but safer span.
This photo was captured on November 7th, 2007, from the shore of Susquehanna State Park with a Canon EOS 10D body fitted with a Canon EF 28-105mm f/3.5-4.5 USM lens. The shutter speed was 1/250th sec at f/22, ISO 400. This was my first digital photograph of the old bridge.
