Covered Bridges of Chester/Lancaster Counties (PA)

During the Summer of 2010, after a life-long interest in Covered Bridges, I finally got some time to look up and locate the many Covered Bridges  found in the South Eastern part of Pennsylvania.

Using the both high-dynamic-range imaging (HDRI or just HDR) and single shot 16-bit photography techniques, I was able to produce a series of images for each Covered Bridge that I visited.

The following table is a list of the Publicly accessible Covered Bridges that I was able to capture with my camera.

It is my goal/quest to capture as many bridges as possible, but my limiting factor is time.

In the mean time, please feel free to explore what I have been able to do so far.
