This Evening, I had the wonderful opportunity of visiting & taking “before” pictures of a French country manor in a neighboring town.  The manor, although it was built-in the 1980’s was pure perfection at the time.  They spared no cost.  The woodwork is perfection & the property is a wonderland complete with many sitting areas, walking, paths, a two-story playhouse, a playground, a full tennis court, & a beautiful creek which fills with pure mountain water in the springtime.

The neighboring homes have the most lovely covered bridges {for their driveways!!!!! oh soooo jealous…} & I just happened to be there at the perfect time to capture the most amazing photographs of the bridges & the setting sun.

I have always been enamored, like many of you, with covered bridges.  I am not quite sure why but something about them screams romance & almost demands a sigh of admiration.





So, after getting bit by the “covered bridge bug”, We decided to search for a few more.  We created a Covered Bridge {Love} board on Pinterest {you can find that here} & we pinned EVERY covered bridge we could find.

The very first bridge I was drawn to was a little red bridge surrounded by greenery.  I followed the pin to its source because of course, I wanted to use it in this post and I was very excited to find out the bridge is in Ohio!  I was completely tickled because for those of you that have followed me for a while {& read this post}, you know I grew up in Ohio, I LOVE it there & I miss it dearly…

 “The hidden Bridge in the Glen” It even has an adorably, cozy name…I love it!

Out of all the bridges, I believe  the  Gallon House Covered Bridge in Oregon has the best story.

You should take the time to visit  Rick Hamell’s Pacific Northwest Photoblog to read

the story behind this breathtaking bridge.

Rich Hammel is an amazing, talented photographer.  I was extremely impressed with his blog.

You should definitely check it out.


Lake Creek (Nelson Mountain) Covered Bridge


Rick Hamell  stated on his blog :

“The Lake Creek Covered Bridge is located about 38 miles west on Highway 36 from out of Eugene. What is interesting about this picture – is that it was about 11am on an otherwise sunny day. A huge fog bank from the Ocean covered everything inland for miles.”

What an absolutely perfect and dreamy picture it created!  Just beautiful.



Bridgeton Mill Bridge in Indiana

 I found this picture of the Bridgeton Mill Bridge on Flickr.  Someone with the user name amries captured it.  I loved the charm of the old mill.

I really like this Beautiful covered bridge captured by George Conn, it crosses the Shippack Creek near Shippack Village, Pennsylvania.  It reminds me of a Grand White Barn.

Beautiful Red Covered Bridge Somewhere in Vermont.

I am so enamored by the red bridges.  Andrew L. Seymour has captured some amazing photographs which really tell the story of the bridges he visits & exposes them from new angles.  I am completely impressed with his talents as a photographer.



 I found this beautiful green bridge on Ken {&} Amanda {dot} com.  I love that it is such a different color & the fact that the trees are blooming around it.
