Veteran’s Day

I recently visited the Raven Rock Bridge, a pedestrian bridge in Lumberville, PA, that spans the Delaware Canal and River.  My prior post gives you a little background on the bridge.

The long span takes you to Bull’s Island Recreational area, which is a New Jersey State Park.  Originally, the bridge carried vehicular traffic, until 1944.

There’s an American Flag chained to the bridge.  As you can see, it was VERY, VERY windy this day – so much so that I had to hold onto my baseball cap to keep it from blowing into the river.  Did I mention windy?   The wind was also playing havoc with the bridge because you could feel the deck moving in the wind.  Very unsettling at times – you almost wondered if you were going to land in the river.  Most of my shot were from a tripod because of the wind.

This is my tribute to Veteran’s Day; I thank you all for your service!  Thanks to Marka for reminding everyone early.

    Wow, that’s an interesting shot! It’s really blowing in the wind, the flag… Good idea, Woody!

  7. Superb shot for today.
    Many countries are honouring veterans today. Problem in France is that the last WWI veteran died last year or the year before. Strange to commemorate the end of WWI without any of the men who fought in it.

    An excellent tribute!

    I’ve been gradually coming to the opinion that the designated days are becoming over-commercialized. So instead of jumping on the bandwagon, I think I’ll begin to post about two weeks early. Much like I did for Veteran’s Day.
