Spring at the General Burrows Memorial Covered Bridge by 


I decided to stop by the General John Burrows memorial covered footbridge yesterday, to see how our landmark site looked in spring. I picked the right day. The lovely Dogwood tree beside the bridge was in full bloom!

This is another spring view from Indian Park (Municipal Park) in Montoursville, Pennsylvania, USA. The Gen Burrows footbridge spans Mill Creek, in the park. The bridge was built in 1988. It is a fitting memorial to several local community leaders and war heroes. This unusual footbridge pays homage to all of the great Pennsylvania Historical Covered Bridges throughout the State.

This photo was just taken last evening, April 24th, 2010. It was shot with a Canon EOS 10D using a Canon EF 17-40mm f/4L zoom lens set to 36mm. The shutter speed was 1/750th sec. at f/6.7. The camera’s ISO was set to 100. A Manfrotto tripod was used with a remote shutter release cable.

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.

    I love the open walls exposing the truss, beautiful bridge, well maintained.

  • Much appreciated, Debbie! I really like the way they designed this little bridge, too. It’s a really popular feature in the park. The park’s maintenance crew does a great job of keeping everything looking in tip-top shape here.

    Kindest regards,

    Gene

    Wow, the view outside is a spectacular as from the inside, beautiful Gene!!!

  • Much appreciated, Linda! I was thrilled to see that dogwood tree in bloom yesterday. That was what I was really hoping for. I wanted to get a “spring” picture of the bridge. That blooming tree is exactly what I needed to define the season.

    Best wishes,

    Gene

    Beautiful capture

  • Thank you, Joy! The tree with white blossoms to the left of the bridge is the dogwood where I captured one of the blossoms for my next posting. That’s a full-grown example of a dogwood tree.

    Best wishes,
