As a new resident to Iowa, one of the things on my “must see” list was to find and photograph the Bridges of Madison County, made famous by the book of the same name by Robert James Waller, and the corresponding feature film starring Clint Eastwood and Meryl Streep.
One cold day in February, I found out that my husband would have a day off when the kids were going to be in school. I convinced him to go with me to search for and photograph the bridges. We drove out to Winterset, IA and stopped at the visitor’s center for a map. We were able to get to 4 of the six bridges before we had to return to retrieve the kids from school. Below is a small set of the images I captured. I know they may seem cliché, but I like them none-the-less. My husband and I had a great day together. We both carried a camera, both had some really great shots, tried to stay warm, had lunch – and overall fun adventure. We are hoping to make it out to the last two bridges before we move again. To see more images of the images I captured, be sure to visit my Flickr Gallery. The bridges we visited were Hogback Bridge, Cedar Bridge, Holliwell Bridge, and Imes Bridge. The two remaining are Roseman Bridge and Cutler-Donahoe Bridge. You can read more about the bridges here.
