  1. Are you also getting problems of light and bad weather 😉 It reminds me of some post of Steve and its old bridges… Beautiful and from another time!

  3. Thanks Chris,

    That seems to be common in the fall here for a lot of the time, overcast and sometimes rain. Overcast skies are often good for photography though, as I’m sure you know.

    Cheers, Harold

  4. Thanks Hilke,

    I get to that area every year for a couple of weeks to visit my daughter and it seems always to be when the foliage is at its best. I have grown to love the New England area.

    Cheers, Harold

  5. Hello again Harold –

    This was the last bridge of Nichols long career, and in a town abutting the one chosen as his homeplace.

    It was moderately damaged by Irene’s flood-waters, and briefly out of service this past year. Your highwater image suggests that the modest damage (mostly limited to washed out approaches)was a bit of luck at that.

  6. Hi Will,

    I thought I had fixed all my misspellings of his name. 🙁 Hopefully that is that last.

    I expect Irene had the water higher than when I visited, so its great it seemed to have weathered well.
