US 4 Arch Bridge

June 18, 2009

Another problem with the way I abandoned this blog to my writer's block and general malaise this past summer was overlooking some of the really neat pictures that I did manage to capture.

This is the arch bridge that carries US Route 4 over the Quechee Gorge, about 150 leafy green feet above the Ottaquechee River. I took this picture from the same spot as the VanGoghlaroid version from three years ago. It's actually the only spot along the trail where you can get a clear view through the trees. The way the girders of the bridge stand out amid the foliage in this infrared image really make the picture for me.
