Old Country Bridge

I was out shooting a house in a small town called Cochrane yesterday. The town is about 20 minutes outside of the city and is a nice little community from what I saw. I had shot houses in this community before and I always noticed this old bridge from the top of a large hill as your driving in.  For no apparent reasons, I felt today was the day I would get a picture of this bridge. When I found the bridge, I of course drove over it just to drive over it haha, but the funny thing about this bridge is it really leads to no where. On the other side of the river is a privet road and what looks to be a farm. Pretty nice bridge for a couple of luck people I’d say :).

  1. The tubing on the side of the bridge is interesting…do they carry water or oil or wires from one side to the other? I suppose you don’t know but it does raise questions about what else is on the other side of the bridge.

  2. Really nice. No kidding, pretty nice for that family!
    I love roaming the back roads of Sask, Manitoba and Alberta, finding some great old ghost towns, bridges, houses, etc.

  3. I love these old bridges. All those textures and details. Sounds like you used a lens similar to the 50mm I use, no doubt for its flexibility of aperture settings. Sweet glass. 🙂 Thanks for sharing this, Rob. Great job!

    1. Yes! 50mm is by far my favourite focal length, even though on this particular camera it was more like a 75mm haha. But I use my 50mm on my full frame Canon bodies more than anything. Makes me wonder sometimes why I have all these different lenses lol ;).

  4. Hi Rob, Cochrane is a beautiful little town, and I always love the chance to drive out there. Next time you go take some time to walk around the Cochrane Ranche, it is a beautiful historical park here is a link to some info http://www.historicplaces.ca/en/rep-reg/place-lieu.aspx?id=11541

    and you mentioned ghost towns, here is a site listing all of the Alberta Ghost towns. http://www.ghosttowns.com/canada/alberta/alberta.html Wayne is not far from Drumheller, and not far from there is an old mine, great fun to spend a day there!

    I love you photos of the bridge.
