Photographer's Log Photographer's Log

Starting with this post we begin a new thread consisting of a photo essay depicting the natural beauty of the area. Enjoy.

BUSKIRK’S BRIDGE-BEFORE THE RESTORATION- I have spent quite a few years photographing the Buskirk’s Bridge and have a fairly complete record of its restoration process. This shot of the old Covered Bridge was taken on March 24, 2004 looking from the Washington County side at River Road towards the Rensselaer County side. My most favorite time of day to photograph this bridge is at sundown because the sun sets right behind the bridge into the Hoosick River. In this particular shot I delight in the way the last rays of the golden sun seem to give a final caress to the flat cement abutment supporting the Rensselaer side of the old bridge. It makes such an accurate statement of winter in the country where you find these interesting, beautiful splashes of color amidst the greys, browns and blacks of the landscapes.
This photo was digitally enhanced to better express my sense of the peace of the evening and the lone moment I shared with the bridge, river, sunset and landscape. -June Mohan (Photograph: copyright Mohan 2005)
