Old Bridge over the Delaware, Riegelsville, PA

Thursday morning, 20 June 2013. Traffic and construction problems forced me to do something I had not done for a long time: Take one of my less -used alternate routes getting to work. "Time-wise," this one is the longest by far...But it is always full of interesting things to see....including this historic old bridge that crosses the Delaware River in the small town of Riegelsville, Pennsylvania. It lies bout 9 miles south of Easton, where we live.

As I drove south on Pennsylvania Route 611, the sun was bright but low on the eastern horizon. The skies were clear. Suddenly, after traveling south about 6 miles, I encountered very thick fog in the river valley. I knew that fogscapes might present themselves.

Sure enough, I got to the old bridge, and, by then I could care less if I was late for work or not.. I HAD to stop!!! I stopped, I took about a million shots and then pressed on to the office. this one is one of my favorites...I hope you like it - These are really cool old bridges and there is a similar bridge in Easton which I PROMISE to show you. It has a twin in Budapest that DarkElf posted a few months ago.

Let me know what you think of this one :-) Love to you all <3
