Into Western West Virginia
A short trip into West Virginia to visit an abandoned bridge at Ona.
Southeastern Ohio Historic Bridges
Over the period of several months, I set out to photograph southeast Ohio's historic bridges.
Exploring the Northern Reaches of the Ohio River
The northern Ohio River valley is an area that I have often passed by but not explored. Between the area surrounding eastern Ohio, northern West Virginia and western Pennsylvania, there are over 25 railroad and highway crossings, some active, others abandoned.

Taking advantage of a weekend of snow squalls and mild winds, I packed my camera bag and hopped into my all-wheel-drive Subaru for a spin out into the country.
