A beautiful October day at the Albany Covered Bridge in Albany, New Hampshire NH. The autumn foliage is near peak and the weather magnificent.
A bit cloudy but still pleasant none the less.
The Albany Covered Bridge spans the Swift River in the White Mountain region of New Hampshire. The bridge was built in 1858 and is 120 feet long. A historical landmark off of the scenic Kancamagus Highway.
Manged to carefully make my way out to the largest rock that I could reach from the river bank. Jumping, crouching, scaling... all the while trying to keep myself from falling into the river and dumping my sling pack and tripod into the water. Set up shop on this large rock that was just big enough to fit my butt and the tripod beside me. Sometimes it feels strange to use the tripod in "shorty" mode, especially when it can extend to almost 6 feet. I wasn't taking any chances though with the camera and tripod teetering off of the rock. Lower center of gravity is always the tripod's best friend in those situations. I just sat for a while and enjoyed the sounds of the water and the wonderful vista. Nice to be on my own little rock in my own little space.
This image has been photographed with a neutral density filter on the lens to get a longer exposure time. Typically that combination creates a silky, smooth,frothy look to the river water. Thank you for taking a look.
