I really like both shots. Your interpretation of the natural ice sculpture is very done. The covered bridge is a treasure. Do you know how many are left in your state? Oregon currently has about 65-80. Some are still in use. Others have been preserved for foot traffic only. Some have been relocated to parks. It appears that this one might be in the latter category. Do you know any history of the bridge?

Thank you Cal! Built in 1875, The Vermont covered bridgein Highland Park is a transplant from the town of the same name, which is about 5 miles east of Kokomo about a mile from where I live presently. After surviving floods, at least one arson attempt and a reckless coal delivery driver, the Vermont Covered Bridge was threatened by another prominent covered bridge destroyer. In 1957, plans for the new Kokomo Reservoir called forflooding the valley at the bridge site. The old wooden bridge was tobe replaced with a wider and longer concrete span, built on higher ground. I would guess there are maybe thirty covered bridges left in Indiana.

Both are very nice, Bob. The waterfall effect on the branch is most unusual. Good eye.
