(bump to get back to the top of my photo stream)

This is a re-post / slighty updated photo of the old Tunkhannock Viaduct that is located in Nichols, Pa. Readers digest -- I only happened to be in the area as I had to travel down towards Philly for a work issue. Coming back home on 81 north I wound up in traffic that was not moving - at all. Argh. After about 10-15 minutes and only having moved about a mile I figured that I would just bail out and get off at the nearest exit and hop on route 11 which runs parallel to 81 and would still get me where I want to go, albeight a little slower. I was able to do just that and was once again happily motoring along when I came around a bend in the road and . . . . WOW! You cannot miss this structure - it is huge. It is commanding. It is quite impressive. Now - I had seen it before in years past but had, honestly, forgotten about it as I had not been down in this area of PA in a while. It was mid to late afternoon and I was on my way home anyway, my work done for the day and I happened to have my camera with me. :) So - I parked the car and spent the next 30-45 minutes or so grabbing various shots and angles of this engineering marvel.

Photo published! time passes. I photographed this train tressel in July of '09. Sometime in the spring, or maybe summer of '10 I get an e-mail from the editor of Pennsylvania Magazine letting me know that they are working on an article about the bridge and that they are interested in using my image in the magazine. Cool! :) Long story short - an agreement was reached on compensation and usage rights to the image, and a few months later, as promised, the November/December edition of the magazine was published as was my photo in the relevant article. I was shocked (pleasantly) to not only have one of my photo's published in a magazine that has a pretty wide circulation, but that they also used it for a full page photo! (page 37 specifically)

See comment below for cover of the edition of that magazine.
