Harrisburg Covered Bridge

In continuation from my last post of the church this is what I was trying to find that day! This bridge is one of only four covered bridges in existence in the state of Tennessee. It is located in the small community of Harrisburg in Sevier County just outside of Sevierville. I had photographed this bridge before but I was never happy with the results. I would have preferred a “sunshiney” day instead of the overcast weather, but that was what I had to work with. I was shooting on the right-hand side of the bridge when a man approached me and said if I wanted to get a better angle I could go behind his house and setup my tripod there. I feel like this was the best angle to capture this after having shot many different directions. I thanked him for his hospitality afterwards (which is one thing I love about the south!) and I was on my way to my next adventure! 🙂

Here is a link to more information about the bridge and it’s amazing history!

This was an amazing find. I was driving around Pigeon Forge, Tennessee looking for a specific road that I had been on before a long time ago. While I did finally find the road and what I was looking for (which will be the subject of a future post) I came across this church and had to stop. I just absolutely love the architectural style of older churches and this one did not disappoint. I shot many different angles of this scene but I felt this one portrayed it the best. I really like how the clouds were aligned and the light was just right!

Here is a link to the church website with more information about it and some of the history behind it!
