Sachs Covered Bridge built in 1852 spans Marsh Creek is found near Gettysburg Pennsylvania. Both Union and Confederate troups used the bridge in 1863 during the American Civil War. The bridge was damaged by floods in 1996 but was restored by Adams County.
Dan Myers, a fellow RedBubbler, mentioned this covered bridge a few weeks before at a Welcome Pennsylvania RedBubble outing. I got a beautiful shot then, but decided to head back and give it another try. Although it isn’t that different than the last. I do think I had a little better lighting. Unfortunately it’s almost impossible to get a perfect reflection. There are bubbles coming up from the bottom…maybe from some bottom feeding fish disturbing the plants on the bottom. Even though, it’s hard to argue with the beauty of this setting. I am a creature of habit, once I find a spot, I often return trying to find the perfect shot. Or at least an improvement over my prior efforts.
