about image 1577 (Masham covered bridge)
Sainte-Cecille-de-Masham is a small town in my region of the Outaouais (pronounced "Oot-a-way") in Western Quebec, Canada. This unusual covered bridge is one of 6 covered bridges in the region, but is not constructed in the Modified Lattice style of all the others. This one dates to 1958, over a hundred years after the founding of the township, and spans the Lapeche River at one of the entrances to Gatineau Park. I particularly liked the silvery burnished look to the river and the bridge's reflection on this day. And it always pays to get out to look for pictures after a snowfall that leaves snow on all the tiny tree branches!
