From the water’s edge, this the December 5th view of the Moreland Covered Bridge, near Lairdsville, Pennsylvania, USA. The bridge is located on Covered Bridge Road, off of PA State Route 118, in eastern Lycoming County. Local folks just call it the “Old Lairdsville Bridge”.
The Moreland Bridge was built way back in 1888. It crosses the “Little” Muncy Creek in Moreland Township. The bridge is also called the Fraser Covered Bridge in several historical documents. The structure is a classic “Burr Arch” design. There is an unusual window in the side boards, to allow riders to see if anyone is approaching on the sharp turn at the far side. This beautiful landmark was officially listed on the US National Historical Register in 1980 and is maintained by the Lycoming County Commissioners out of Williamsport, Pennsylvania.
The photo was shot as a blinding snowstorm was just getting started.
The photo was captured with Canon EOS 10D DSLR body, fitted with a Canon EF 17-40mm f/4L Zoom lens. The lens was set to 24mm focal length and camera’s shutter speed was 1/90th sec at f/4.5. The camera’s ISO was set to 100.
