The covered bridge, located within Chatfield Hollow State Park in Killingworth, is one of many of this subject that I’ve captured over the past several years. This image was taken on a mostly cloudy morning on January 5, 2020.
The open water, along with the absence of any snow, was remarkable given the time of year. I felt the foreground boulder acted as an anchor point and, along with the leading line of the brook’s left bank, helped to make the bridge a prominent focal point, despite half of it being partially obscured by brush and leaves.
I find our club’s image critiques to be very helpful and look forward to hearing your thoughts.
