The Bridges of Parke County

I've travelled to Parke County, Indiana several times.  There are more covered bridges in this county than any other in the United States.  In my series featuring bridges, I've shifted my attention from Acadia to Indiana's covered bridges.

Not only has the form changed, but the textures have, too.  Acadia's bridges are made of stone; covered bridges are made of wood.  The textures in the Acadian forests have been replaced by more simplified shapes in the landscape of Indiana.

The complementary colors still apply, though.  Pink has given way to barn red which is a nice foil to the different values of green.

I love bridges!
