Back this summer I posted a series of shots of one of my favorite old swinging bridges here in Rockbridge County, VA. At that time we had had lots of rain, the river was rushing, and the trees were full of leaves. This week I decided to do back and see what it looked like with ice on the river and this is what I found. It is so sad to see this special structure falling into such serious disrepair, because before too long it will be gone. Those of us who love it are going to have to enjoy its beauty while we can. Be sure to click HERE to see the other post so you can compare the pictures. They are really different.
Since summer, the bridge has deteriorated even more . Now it has lost a BIG board which made me a bit nervous walking out there. At least the water wasn’t loudly rushing as it was before.
This shot is in stark contrast to the summer one. Everything looks so drab and cold. You will note just how calm the water is. It does not seem to be moving at all.
The ice had begun to melt before I got there on Wednesday morning, but there was still enough for you to see to get the feeling of what it looked like. It was so pretty.
This is pretty much a duplicate of the summer shot taken at the point where the bridge begins, but the image is entirely different. You can tell it is definitely winter.
Today my package of goodies from Mr. Holy Cow Louis Va Vache arrived, and it was even better that I expected. Not only did I get MORE coffee, I also got some of his tea and another AirScape container for my coffee...this time the BIG one. These are the greatest containers I have ever had, and I do not need to tell you how good is coffee is. Give it a try - Holy Cow Coffee - and you will be a very happy coffee drinker!
