Houston is one of the largest city in the Southern US it has a population of over 2 million people and is very diverse. The city is home to Houston ship channel, the art district, opera, sports teams, the medical center along with several universities, Aquarian, museums, and many parks, along with a large convention center the “George Brown Convention” in the heart of downtown with the Discovery Green Park across the street. You will also find some of the tallest skyscrapers in the southern United States located here, which make for some nice skyline images. We have many more images of the Houston area so check out our website for more images like these.
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.
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
3. Eleanor Tinsley Park Night –Here are a couple of image taken of the Houston skyline downtown after dark from the Eleanor Tinsley Park. You really get the feel for how impressive this city skyline really is from here at night with the lights in buildings on it gives this sense of how close they are.
4. Discovery Green Park- The discovery Green Park is located right across the street from the George Brown Convention Center in the heart of downtown Houston with all the city skycrapers as a backdrop to this great park. The park has a lake, restaurants, walking trails, and many activities like music, yoga, kayaking, and even ices skating in the winter.
5. Houston Rosemont Pedestrian Bridge View – We captured this image right at sunrise from the Rosemont pedestrian Bridge from this location you can see the Houston skyline. We loved the way the Houston skyscrapers were reflected back in the water of the Buffalo Bayou on this morning. The second image was used in a special edition of Texas Monthly. It was used in the face mask of the astronaut in their 2017 Superbowl edition. dsc-8581
Sunrise Over the Bayou – Another capture of the Buffalo Bayou in downtown Houston as the sunrise was just begining to come up with the skyline of the city in view. You can see the reflections in the waters of the Bayou as the pink sky reflect back into the water.
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. You can see the fireworks as they shot out of the burnt orange tower with the number 17 representing all the graduates of 2017. Even though we were across the street you could see the Texas flag on the Main building and all the lights from the students cell phone as they tried to photograph the fireworks as the final event of the evening. It was a magical moment and for many of these students and their family members that supported them for this very moment it was truely a very happy moment so congrats to all, Go Longhorns!! Below are a few of the best images we captured.
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.
