So I’ve been working on some new things as photography has become a little stale to me. I’ve always been fascinated by video and now even more with the purchase of a drone.
So it’s a new challenge for me and something to learn and practice everyday. I haven’t given up on photography, I’m just adding a different type of photography to my passion.
Below are a couple of the videos I did recently hope you enjoy them. Just remember this is a new venture and I’m still in the learning process.
The video above is of Wharton Iron Furnace located in Fayette County, Pa. The furnace, built by Congressman Andrew Stewart, ran from 1839- 1850 producing cast iron. During the civil war the furnace produced cannon balls.
Above is a video of the Watering Trough park on the National Road in Fayette County.
The Watering Trough started as a house after the Revolutionary War. Eventually developing into a restaurant which lasted well into the late 1990’s. The new park is a great little spot to have a picnic and enjoy the some of the great history that Fayette County has to offer. The Park is located on Route 40, West, below Jumonville Road and the Summit Inn.
I hope you enjoy my video from up in the air as well as a walk around the park.

So there is a bunch of different theories about why covered bridges were originally built. Some say it was to keep the horses from getting spooked when they crossed. Some say it was to provide shelter for those that got caught out in the weather. But most likely they were covered to protect the massive wooden trusses that held the bridges together. Adding the covering would increase the life of the bridge by as much as three times.
What ever the reason for the covered bridge, it most certainly has given us some beautiful sights to see out in the country side. I’m lucky enough to live in an area where there are several bridges that have been preserved and today a few of photographed three of the local bridges. Hope you enjoy the bridges as much as we did.
Todays photo games from a short day trip I made in the fall to a historical landmark in Grantsville, Md. This was an early boring shot just after day break. And to me there is just something about that light that made the hour-long drive in the early morning worth it.
