Lumberville – Raven Rock Bridge

This past weekend I ventured to an area on the Delaware River known as the Lumberville – Raven Rock Bridge. The reason it was of interest to me is because it is a foot bridge. In this day and age, one rarely sees this. The original bridge was built in 1856 and what we see today was reconstructed in 1947. It connects Lumberville, PA and Raven Rock, NJ. The design was handled by John A. Roebling who is most famous for his design of the Brooklyn Bridge. All images were shot with the Olympus OM-D E-M5 MkII and the M.Zuiko ED 7-14mm f2.8 PRO or the ED 8mm F1.8 Fisheye PRO.

American Parkway Bridge

With the recent opening of the new American Parkway bridge, I thought I would check it out. The upper part was nice. But I thought the real attraction was under the belly and the surrounding area. All images shot with the Olympus OM-D E-M5 Mark II and a combination of 40-150mm f2.8 PRO & the 12-40mm f2.8 PRO.

A Foggy Night in Brooklyn

A couple of weeks ago I was in New York for the Olympus Visionary Summit. After dinner, a group of us decided to head over to the Brooklyn Bridge Park to try to get some shots of the Brooklyn & Manhattan Bridges. Unfortunately, when we arrived it was socked in with fog. At first I thought there was no hope for any nice shots. The more I looked at the environment the more I liked what I was seeing. These bridges have been photographed many times. However, not with fog. You decide. I was quite happy with the results.

Wehr Covered Bridge

In South Whitehall, Pennsylvania there is a park area known as Wehr’s Dam/Covered Bridge. The historic wooden bridge was constructed in 1841. So with my gear in hand from an earlier shoot, I thought it would be a good place to capture a few pics. The only challenge was it was the middle of the day with harsh light.

I have been experimenting with Olympus’s “Live Composite” mode which is a feature available on the OM-D series cameras. Most of the time this mode is used for night shots. Lately, I have tried doing this during the daytime hours with the hope of creating a painterly effect. However, to do this during the day, you will need some ND filters. The images I’m sharing consist of two 10 stop ND filters. Needless to say you must have a tripod to make this work and some moving component to create the desired effect. In this case it was the clouds that I wanted moving. The effect is a result of cloud movement and not a post-processing effect. The first two images were about 5 minutes in length & the third image was approximately 2 minutes. On Saturday we had some beautiful fast moving clouds which made for ideal conditions to accomplish my objective.

Treichlers Bridge

Yesterday we were promised some winter sunshine, which never really materialized. So the the dilemma – what to shoot with all of the overcast sky. Trying to find some building ruins in Treichlers, PA, we stumbled across the base of the Treichlers bridge. The geometry was fun and the sun peaked out for a few minutes. The views are from both sides of the river.

Bridge – From a Different Vantage

This is the I-78 bridge near Lehigh Valley Hospital. As a kid, I use to climb up the column abutments and now when I see them I can’t imagine what I was thinking.
