This is a summertime view of the bridge into the town of Montoursville from the city of Williamsport, in north central Pennsylvania. It was over 100 degrees in the shade, but it was especially hot in the mostly dried up creek bed of Lycoming Creek here, where it meets the Susquehanna River. The good news is that it gave me a rare opportunity to find a very different angle to shoot the old iron bridge.

The bridge was built in 1931, fully refurbished in 1994 and is currently open to daily traffic.

Montoursville Bridge To Williamsport

This photograph was snapped this afternoon, July 8th, with a Canon EOS 10D camera through a Canon EF 17-40mm f/4L lens. The focal length was 17mm at f/11 with 1/180th second shutter speed. 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.
