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.
