Covered Bridges in Black and White – Featured Art Prints

I have attached four prints of covered bridges in the state of Oregon, from my Black and White Photography One Gallery. These particular bridges are located in the west quadrant of Oregon north of Grants Pass up to Cottage Grove south of Eugene. They were a quick detour off of Interstate 5 (which winds its way up and down the entire US West Coast from Canada to Mexico) done on a rainy day in early spring.

 

The first shot is of the Grave Creek Covered Bridge, which was built in 1920. This bridge is located 14 miles north of Grants Pass, Oregon right off of Interstate 5.

 

The next shot is the Neal Lane Covered Bridge, which spans Myrtle Creek and is located north of Grants Pass also. The bridge was originally built in 1929. This bridge I lovingly call the “Short Covered Bridge” as the span of the bridge is only 42 feet.

 

 

The third capture is the Stewart Bridge, which spans Mosby Creek and is located east of Cottage Grove (Cottage Grove is along Interstate 5 between Grants Pass and Eugene). The bridge was originally built in 1930.

 

The last print is of the Dorena Covered Bridge that spans the Row River. It was built in 1949. It is located further east of Cottage Grove than the Stewart Bridge at the upper end of Dorena Reservoir.

I think this presentation in black and white captured the mood of a cool rainy day and the age of the bridges. Thoughts?

I invite you to visit my Black and White Photography One Gallery to enjoy these prints and many more.

      They have such an appeal! I’m embarrassed to say all the times we went up to Seattle from San Diego while our youngest was in college up there, I had no idea Oregon even had covered bridges…duh!! Thanks for following!!

    Kirt my top pick is the Grave Creek bridge. They are all so pretty. We don’t seem to have any covered bridges in Western Canada. I wonder why that is?

      Good question….I was shocked to see them in Oregon….I associate them with the New England area of US! Sad story behind the Grave Creek Bridge….during the pioneer movement to the west….16 year old died of disease at that location of typhoid fever….thus the name.

    These covered bridges in black and white are fabulous! In Ashtabula, Ohio there are so many covered bridges. Along with the bridges are local wineries. They have a winery and bridge tour… how fun is that??

        North East Ohio. East of Cleveland. Great looking covered bridges and then wineries too! Some of these covered bridges are located within vineyards. Nice!

      I really wonder where they came from….I always associated them with the eastern part of the U.S. And really had no idea that there were covered bridges here in the western part! I love the architecture!

    Whoa! Did you remember that cover bridges were a soft spot with me or is this just a stroke of good luck on my part? Either way – thanks! They bring back wonderful childhood memories.

    My favorite covered bridge in this collection is the rugged second photograph, Kirt. There is something special about the way age makes a building or in this case, a bridge, special and shows signs of Life well lived in its worn edges.

      There are a couple of things about that photo that says the same thing to me. The daylight was slightly darker as it was beginning to drizzle more and the bridge itself was more “worn”! Thanks again for the feedback…I truly appreciate it!!

    The monochrome tone brings out the authentic architecture of the bridges. I have never seen covered bridges in person before, not in Europe for sure. These are really unique and represented the North American’s design. Well done, Kirt!
