While out mapping a dual-sport motorcycle loop through central Oklahoma, I ran across a remote bridge over the Cimarron River in Logan County. Major bridges are kind of a big deal, since they are expensive to build and maintain. The rivers in central and western Oklahoma tend to be very wide because of the flat land. This Cimarron River bridge is located along a dirt road so I was surprised that such a large and obviously expensive structure was not fed by paved roads. I did stop and shoot a cool photo of the river with my Toyo VX-125 film camera on Kodak TMAX-100 film. I have photographed the Cimarron River several times and it always turns out as a pretty cool photograph. I like how the river leads your eye up and out of the frame and the sand bar in the foreground adds interest to the frame.
