1982 - Kemah Drawbridge With Shrimp Boat (Black & White)
The perfect alignment of the setting sun between the arms of a shrimp boat passing through the drawbridge is captured in this photograph in 1982. This magical moment presented itself as I was navigating with friends through the Clear Creek Channel on a sailboat. This photograph is also printed in color.
The Kemah-Seabrook Drawbridge in this picture was a two-arm bridge that was built in 1962. It replaced a previous one-arm bridge connecting the towns of Seabrook and Kemah on the upper Texas Gulf coast. This bridge was dismantled in 1986 when the current fixed-span bridge was completed.
