This is another view of the Keefer Station Covered Bridge, from the Sunbury, PA side. The sun decided to peek through the gray clouds for this shot. The bridge spans Shamokin Creek in Upper Augusta Township in central Pennsylvania. This historical structure was built in 1888 by George W. Keefer, which accounts for the name it was given.
A substantial extension of the roof at each end of the bridge gives this great Pennsylvania landmark a truly unique appearance. It is one of the most beautiful covered bridges I have ever seen.
The Keefer Station Bridge was officially listed on the US National Register of Historic Places on August 8, 1979.
This photo was captured with a Canon EOS 10D body fitted with a Canon EF 17-40mm f/4L Zoom lens, at the widest focal length of 17mm. The shutter speed was 1/250th sec at f/8. The camera’s ISO was set to 100. A Manfrotto, tripod was used.
