Stormy Drawbridge and Boat Racing Towards the Sun Photo Canvas Wall Art Print
About This Beach Themed Wall Pictures: Stormy Drawbridge and Boat Racing Towards the Sun is a composite image of a small personal boat passing through an the opening of the Ortega Drawbridge on Ortega River in Jacksonville, Florida. The image is a creation of merging the daytime shot of the boat and bridge with a dramatic photograph of a stormy cloud filled sky with lightning. Then a colorized overlay was applied for a more theatrical appearance.
"This is a very small bascule span that is in some ways dwarfed by the bridge's very long approach system. This bridge has very little elevation which means this bridge has to be raised for smaller craft than bascule bridges that are positioned higher off the water. The bridge was designed with aesthetics in mind. The four bridge tender houses on this bridge are two more than would generally be needed to operate a bascule bridge in the 1920s (today only one house needs to be staffed). The presence of four houses was likely more of an aesthetic decision rather than a necessity. The approach spans have unusual ornamental concrete railings that are the distinctive design of T. B. Carrick, a local engineer of note. Other bridges designed by T. B. Carrick had this same railing design. The bascule span has its own unusual steel railing. The bascule railing appears to not be original as the use of bolts and welds instead of rivets suggest, but it may be a general replication of the original design." - historicbridges.org
