Bridge Road ...Scenic Shortcut To Northumberland County by 


This is the incredible country view that Pennsylvania farmland travelers see when they take the shortcut from Potts Grove to Creek Road in Montandon County. It is the dusty and unpaved “Bridge Road”. I wanted to capture the incredibly beautiful setting that keeps this place so dear to my heart.

Straight ahead is the Gottlieb Brown covered bridge (AKA Sam Wagner bridge) that crosses the Chillisquaque Creek, where it immediately intersects Creek Road.

This is the bucolic view seen while driving north on Bridge Road in Liberty Township, Montour County. This beautiful landmark is located about one mile northeast of the village of Potts Grove, PA, USA. It is just a short distance from State Route 642.

This photo was was taken on the evening of July 30th, 2010, using a Canon EOS 10D camera with a Canon EF 17-40mm f/4L zoom lens. The focal length was set to 17mm. The shutter speed was 1/180th sec. at f/13. 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.

    Lovely bridge!! Good job!! Next assignment start on all the covered bridges!

  • Thanks, Ciana! I started my covered bridge assignment a few years back. It feels great to pick up where I left off several months ago. So far, I have photographed every historic covered bridge within an hours drive from my house …that’s thirteen bridges so far. I just downloaded directions to thirteen more of them that are a bit farther away from me. That’s my next project.

    More bridge pictures to follow…

    Lovely image! Good luck with the bridge project, think Vermont, nah, you guys have the most in the U.S. – John

  • Thanks, John! I love the New England covered bridges, too! They are actually quite different than the ones we find around here. I just love them all, especially the very early ones.

    Best regards,

    Great perspective and leading lines, Gene. Bucolic, indeed!

  • Thank you so kindly, Jan! Once the dust settled from driving up on the dirt road, the view just blew me away. I’m glad you like it!

    Awesome shot Gene!

  • Thanks, Monte! So many of the covered bridges in our area are in heavily overgrown settings, where it’s hard to get a shot of the bridge in its surroundings. This one is the exception. The views from every direction are absolutely beautiful here.

    Kindest regards,

    Peaceful and oh so good to see that it is standing. Wonderful work as always

  • Much appreciated, Maureen! This is one of the few covered bridges in our area that has nothing but gorgeous scenery all around it. This is one of the prettiest covered bridges I have ever seen (and the nearby barns ain’t too bad either).

    Best wishes,

    Gene
