This is an old vertical lift drawbridge on the Tensas River in Calcasieu parish, Louisiana. Northbound lanes on US Hwy 425 in Clayton, LA.
The bridge lies along my preferred route to go home to visit relatives in south Louisiana from Wild Ozark in northwest Arkansas. I’ve been trying for years to get a good picture of it and over the years I’ve take several.
Ghost in the Mist
Many were technically “good”, but they didn’t capture the essence of this architectural relic. This one with the fog and the old drawbridge looming like a ghost in the mist, is exactly what I wanted. I hope you like it too.
My photographs are NOT printed at home on a consumer-level printer. I use a professional print shop in Fayetteville, Arkansas to produce these products on high-quality photo paper. I use Priority Mail envelopes with cardboard backing and insurance.
