Lairdsville Covered Bridge In Winter by 


This is the Moreland / Fraser Covered Bridge near Lairdsville, Pennsylvania. The bridge is on Covered Bridge Road, off of State Route 118 in eastern Lycoming County. The locals call it the “Lairdsville Bridge” and it is a wonderful example of the historical Pennsylvania covered bridge.

The Moreland Bridge was built in 1888, permitting safe passage across “Little” Muncy Creek in Moreland Township. It is also know as The Fraser Covered Bridge. The structure still has all of its original timbers, in a classic “Burr Arch” design. This bridge was officially listed on the US National Historical Register in 1980 and has been maintained by the Lycoming County Commissioners.

The photo was shot on at 4:22 p.m. in a quickly intensifying snowstorm.

A Canon EOS 10D DSLR body, fitted with a Canon EF 17-40mm f/4L Zoom lens was used. The lens was set to its widest focal length of 17mm. The camera’s shutter speed was 1/90th sec at f/4. The camera’s ISO was set to 100.

Hello, My name is Gene. I live in the Susquehanna river valley (West Branch), in the mountains of north central Pennsylvania. I strive to produce photographic images that are simply “true” to the subject, usually with minimal post processing. If something is beautiful or interesting enough to deserve a viewer’s attention, it justifies being captured just as it is …or as close to reality as possible.

    Gorgeous!! love the red bridge against the white snow. beautiful reflections!

  • Much appreciated, Jan! It was a bit of a drive to get out to this old bridge, but I just knew that it would look amazing in the snow. I had some car trouble on the way home, but it was still worth it.

    Thank you!
