We capture this image of the Austin skyline with Stevie Ray Vaughn statue from the hike and bike trail on Ladybird Lake with the latest high-rise editions to the city the Colorado Towers, which now almost completely block the Frost building from view at this location. This area of the hike and bike trail along Ladybird lake has been a favorite location for many to capture the city and the statue together. We had an exceptional day with nice skies so we decided to try and capture this photos again, but with the ever changing skyline we will be back again soon. Stevie Vaughn was a favorite blues and rock roll singer who died from a helicopter that crashed into the side of mountain in 1990 at the early age of 35 in the height of his carree. Stevie played a lot of concerts along auditorium shores along with many Austin clubs so this statue was put along the hike and bike trail along Lady Bird Lake or Town Lake as it was called back as a memorial to him in 1994. Today this site is a favorite of tourist to visit and photograph.

Another one of my favorite Austin skyline panoramas we have captured along Lady Bird Lake. Just as twilight began you can still some of the sunset colors still in the sky as the cityscape lights the high rise buildings along the shoreline of Lady Bird Lake in downtown area of the city. For years now high rise building along Austin Lady Bird Lake have made it difficult to capture a good skyline because there are so many cranes and still we have many new skyscrapers on their way. However, from this view you can still capture a decent skyline image along Lady Bird Lake at least for now.
