Stockheughter  Covered Bridge - Franklin County

This 102' long bridge was built in 1877 over Salt Creek. It is located 15 miles southwest of Brookville the county seat and 1 mile east of Enochsburg. This view is looking southeast in the late afternoon.

 

Stockheughter  Covered Bridge - Franklin County

This side shot of the bridge looking northeast is one of my favorite covered bridge photos that I have taken. The timing was nearly perfect and I took it after a long day at Aurora. I had only one other subject to capture after leaving here, that being an old stone arch bridge just a short ways from here. This photo was taken in late afternoon on August 26, 2010.

 

Laurel Feeder Dam & West Fork of Whitewater River

Located 1.5 miles south-southwest of Laurel and about 3.5 miles northwest of Metamora. The amount of water that enters the canal at Metamora can be regulated from here. This is a very quite and peaceful place, at least when I was there. It can be reached by going south on Dam road. The photos of this area were taken on September 17, 2009.

 Laurel Feeder Dam - Another View

This view somewhat closer is looking to the northwest. The little town of Laurel would be to the right in this view. There is a parking lot nearby, however the dam and area nearby cannot be seen from Dam road.

Above Laurel Feeder Dam

A most beautiful and peaceful scene looking north-northwest from a short ways above the dam.

West Fork of Whitewater River

A view of the river from about a quarter of a mile above the dam. We were in a severe drought and the water level was very low.

Church On a Hill

This church is located about a mile west of Metamora on Hy 52. The photo is zoomed in somewhat and from a distance with some imagination, it appears a bit like a castle in Germany.

Church On a Hill

A closer look with perhaps some eagles. Both photographs were taken on afternoon of September 17, 2009.

A view of the bridge from above in the late afternoon sun, taken on September 17, 2009. Oldenburg is an old German town well worth a visit and the surrounding area is beautiful.
