A covered bridge is a bridge with enclosed sides and a roof, often accommodating only a single lane of traffic. Most covered bridges are wooden; some newer ones are concrete or metal with glass sides. Mainly associated with the 19th century, covered bridges often serve as prominent local landmarks and have long attracted the attention of historic preservationists.
The enclosure acts as weather protection over the working part of the structure. For example, a bridge built entirely out of wood, without any protective coating, may last 10 to 15 years. Builders discovered that if the bridge's underpinnings were protected with a roof, the bridge could stand for 70 or even 80 years. Existing covered bridges have been renovated using concrete footings and steel trusses to hold additional weight and to replace the original support timbers. (wikipedia)

The b/w treatment works very well with a range of grey tones. The glass has given some interesting effects. Very good perspective and the man adds some human interest.
Kind Regards, Ann

Un très bon point de vue, avec une perspective centrale bien réalisée.
La lumière créant de bons effets avec la charpente métallique et les verres.

J'aime beaucoup l'effet de profondeur et de tunnel que provoque ce point de vue sur la passerelle.On voit que l'homme se redresse quelque peu pendant la pose.
