On the way home from Kingfield, we had stopped to take a few photographs of the Wire Bridge in New Portland, Maine. The sun had already started going down and the bridge was mostly in the shade. I think the photographs turned out okay though. I would like to come out during all four seasons and see if I could get a few different views of the bridge. My favorite photographs of the bridge that I have seen, were from the peak fall season and after a freshly fallen snow.
