The photograph above is of the Burnside Bridge in Antietam National Battlefield. I took this on Sept. 24, 2019, about a year ago, a lot has changed since then. While most people know this as Burnside Bridge, named after the Union Major General Ambrose E. Burnside. The bridge has two other names, one is “Rohrbach’s Bridge”, after a local farmer Henry Rohrbach who lived nearby. The second name, “Lower Bridge” is in reference to the Upper Bridge and Middle Bridge located further upstream that also allowed movement of freight, animals, and people across the Antietam Creek.
Last week I went out to take some photographs of a falls I had seen about a year ago. I had hoped to try out some long exposures, but I could not get a decent composition of the falls, but I did notice this bridge downstream. I ended up taking a few photographs of the bridge and the water around it.
