Crossing the Tennessee

Several years ago, I was returning back from a service call in Decatur, Alabama and stopped to photograph this bridge.

Actually there are two bridges. They are called the Captain William J. Hudson “Steamboat Bill” Memorial Bridges after a local steamboat captain. The bridges cross the Tennessee River at one of the river’s widest points. Built in 1963 and 1999 the bridges replaced the historic William Keller Bridge, which was a drawbridge that was completed in 1928.

I was recently contacted by a local marina that purchased this image to use as a logo on their future website.

  1. Awesome shot, Phillip. Congrats on it’s selection. Nice touch with that tall grass in the left foreground. Adds some nice depth to the scene.
