This bridge was built in 1876 and is just south of the confluence of the Wildcat with the Ellis River by Charles Austin Broughton and his son Frank who were dairy farmers. It is also named Covered Bridge # 51 by the state of New Hampshire. The nickname, Honeymoon Bridge, comes from the tradition of lovers kissing under it for good luck.
Willey Pond is located along Route 302 in Crawford Notch, New Hampshire. The pond spills out into the Saco River as pictured here.
You can’t visit New England without finding and capturing some of the covered bridges. The Pemigewasset River bridge, located in New Hampshire’s Franconia Notch State Park, is found 1/4 mile up the Flume Gorge Trail. The bridge was built in 1886.
Have been spending a few days in New Hampshire to see and photograph the fall colors. It’s a long way from California so it was a disappointment to spend our first day in pouring rain. We decided to take a drive to check things out. Several miles up the Kancamagus Highway my wife Sue saw this little tree and thought it needed my attention. Despite cars zooming by and the rain pelting down here it is.
The Cape Neddick Lighthouse stands on Nubble Island about 100 yards off Cape Neddick Point. It is commonly known as Nubble Light or simply The Nubble. Cape Neddick Point is at the north end of Long Sands Beach in the village of York Beach. The lighthouse is inaccessible to the general public, but the nearby mainland is occupied by Sohier Park with a view of the lighthouse and a gift shop with a “Nubble” theme. If you’re adventurous you can climb down the rocks and get to the waters edge to ad a little drama to your shot.
