07/31/11 Somesville Bridge

Posted: August 1, 2011 in Uncategorized

This little bridge in Somesville is the most photographed bridge in Maine. Pretty tough to find new ways of shooting it. The mosquitos and the red ants really protect this place. I knelt down and nearly had my knee cap eaten off. A bald eagle dropped by while I was photographing the bridge, but off course I had the wide angle lens on.

The standard shot ... seen a million times.

This was taken at Salisbury Cove from the kayak.

The bald eagle landed across the street.

    I remember photographing the Somesville Bridge about 20 years ago. I’m glad it is still there and looking well maintained. Love the colorful flowers in the foreground and the bridge reflection. Funny about the eagle (nice capture and reflection) and the bugs. Barb and I were kayaking Barnegat Bay this past weekend. So much fun to have camera in hand trying for a steady shot only to look down in the cockpit and see a friendly green head fly trying to remove some flesh from my leg.
