1. Fred Hartman Bridge – These two images of the Fred Hartman Bridge below are a sunset and night capture of this cable stay bridge that spans the Houston Ship Channel. The bridge is 2.6 miles long and is the main route to Baytown and La Porte. We like the first image as we captured this wonderful sunset colors over the ship channel and we also like the second version as night has set in over the ship channel with the lights on the bridge giving that moody capture.

Fiery Skies Over Fred Hartman Bridge : Prints Available

We had a hard time picking which image to select of the Fred Hartman Bridge on the ship channel outside of Houston. This bridge is 2.6 miles long and spans across the ship channel from Baytown to La Porte Texas. The sky was incredible I hate to say it but I think it due to all the chemicals in the air in this area. Earlier we noticed two different areas with rainbow yet it had not rained at all. In any case oil refineries make for beautiful fiery sunset. Watermark will not appear on image

Fred Hartman Bridge Night – The Fred Hartan bridge after dark with the lights on giving it a golden glow against the night sky. The bridge span 2.8 miles across the ship channel from La Porte to Baytown Texas. The bridge was built to replace the tunnel that went underneath the water so they could dig it out for bigger ships to pass. You can cleary make out the refinery underneath the bridge even the fracking flare.

2. Eleanor Tinsley Park Day –These images are from Eleanor Tinsley Park which is along side of the Buffalo Bayou north west of the downtown area of the city. It is a favorite place to capture a Houston skyline or other cityscape images of the high rise buildings in the downtown area and this is just a couple of those images we took of the park from the ground and air using our aerial drone to capture a little different perspective. This park includes a hike and bike trail along the buffalo bayou, volley ball, and other activies along with other events sponsord by the city. dsc06029

You can see the Houston City Hall building at the base of the buildings where it is dwarfed by the high-rise skyscrapers since Houston has some ot the tallest buildings in the southern US. We were able to capture this high quality aerial image over Houston because we use a full frame camera on our drone for out still photographs so we can get the best image which can be printed easlity as a 20 x 60 or larger size without loss of resolution.

This years graduation ceremony for The University of Texas graduates was magical moment as the fire work ended the evening with crowds of people watching from outside the barriers which were on the other side of the Littlefield fountain along with all the graduating students tonight. UT campus is a rather large school with over 40 acreas, but it seem they were all crammed into this small area for the ceremony for the class of 2017.

Ghostly Caldwell Pier After Dark

We decided to go out around 2Am and see if we could get the milkyway as it came up over the horizon so while waiting we decided to take a photo under the Caldwell Pier in Port A to see what we would get. We have taken this pier many times but never this long after dark. At first I thought the lights on the pier would not be good but afterwards I thought the lights made the photo more interesting as it gave the pier this errie look to the waters below. We thought the image turned out pretty nice with the this sort of ghostly look to the waters and the pier with it diminishing perspective gave it cool coastal landscape. You can see the ripple of the sand under the wave along the beach as the tide came in which just added another cool layer to the image. We love to come to Port Aransas and on this trip we were visiting with our friends from Nashville who have a beach house, but we never been to beach in the middle of the night. We sat around with our friends having some wine and once they said they were going to bed then we went out to take some photos. Always have a good time here rather we take photos or not. We expected the beach to be empty at this hour, but we were surprise to find dozen of people walking in the surf and many in the waters as you could see their flash light shinning into the waters of the gulf. I don’t know what they were doing fishing, looking for shells whatever by three most were gone. Another great night in Port A Texas.

We capture this image of the Caldwell Pier after Dark in Port A Texas with a unique look at night.  We have this texas coastal image that we took during the day and at sun rise so we thought why not try it after dark.  So around 2pm we went out to see what we could photograph and the pier had lights so we decided to try a shot here.  You can see where the lights of the pier cast this ghostly look over the waters below.  We had just enough light to see the surf flow over the ripple of sand on the beach as high tide came in with a long exposure, which gave a nice effect we thought. Hope you like our Texas pier beach scene at night.
