Vermont's Covered Bridges
 
There are just over 100 authentic covered bridges in Vermont. A "covered bridge" is considered authentic not due to its age, but by its construction. An authentic bridge is constructed using trusses rather than other methods such as stringers (a popular choice for non-authentic covered bridges).
 
The first known covered bridge constructed in the United States was the Permanent Bridge, completed in 1805 to span the Schuylkill River in Philadelphia. Most covered bridges were constructed between 1820 and 1875. The enclosure was intended to extend the life of the bridges because they were constructed of wood.
 
This bridge is the Kingsbury Covered Bridge in South Randolph VT on Route 14 about five miles north of the little village of Royalton VT. Thank you Wikipedia and The National Society For The Preservation Of Covered Bridges for the info.
 
If you love making great photos of covered bridges (or most things for that matter) you can enhance your photo by paying attention to your background. Adding a background element of interest will keep your viewer more engaged with your photograph. In this case the farm silos added a nice counterpoint to the bridge itself.
