Statue Of Liberty in Pennsylvania
There are two Statue of Liberty monuments in this country and both hold a torch aloft in one hand and the book of law in the other. However, this miniature version of the symbol of freedom stands tall on an old bridge pier in the Susquehanna River at Dauphin, just above Harrisburg, Pennsylvania.
The three images in this gallery were shot with a drone flying out above the river. Realistically, it’s the only way to get a good photograph of her. Sitting in a boat on the river isn’t the right height at all and she can’t be seen very well from either shore. Both viewpoints are dangerous too: stopping on the busy highway to gawk is very risky and she stands in the Maryville rapids which are known to be perilous.
Consequently, flying a camera out over the river was the only way to get these pictures other than renting a helicopter. Like most people, I’ve enjoyed seeing our Pennsylvania Statue of Liberty on that river perch through my years of travel down that way. But now, I can actually enjoy seeing her close in, not to mention the scenic river views.
These pictures look great on either canvas or metal and they’re rather striking too. They’re offered large as 20×36 which is a very good size to fill an empty wall and I keep one hanging here too. I hope you enjoy them as well…free shipping to the US and Canada. ~Andy
