Austin Skyline Along Lady Bird Lake in Fall – Fall can be fleeting in Texas, but we do have a short window where the bald cypress and red oaks come togther to create this autumn landscape scenery. The bald cypress turn from an orange to a red to a rusty color along the lake the red oaks are sprinkled through out the area. This is an aerial capture looking toward downtown Austin along Lady Bird Lake or Town Lake as many that have lived here for a while still call it from Zilker park. Austin Texas lady bird lake is actually part of the Highland lakes Colorado river chain which flows from the hill country into lake travis and lake austin into Lady bird lake where it then flow all the way to the coast. Along it way create this recreational spot near Zilker park where people utilize the water with their sups, canoes, or whatever as you an see lot of people on the lake today. Zilker Park is over 350 acres where people come to enjoy all that is offered in the area including picnic tables, soccer, Barton Springs, hike and biking trails which run through the park area and beyond.

Texas Capitol from Austin SOCO Sunrise

Texas Capitol from Austin SOCO Sunrise – A view looking up Congress toward the Texas Capitol in downtown with the Austin skyline at sunrise. This was taken from an area refered to as SOCO which stand for South Congress. The soco area is a hip and trendy spot full of restaurants, shops, and night life which just happens to be in view of the Austin downtown along with the Texas capitol. There are very few times you can stand in the middle of the road in this area without being hit by a car so we haven’t been back here in years. Austin Texas is a vibrant active city it is hard to find times where you can photograph some scenes because this city doesn’t seem to stop. In this view you can see the capitol, the Frost Tower, the Austonian the second tallest building along with many others. The dividing line for south congress to north congress is Lady Bird Lake.

Austin Skyline Dawn Pano – Lady Bird Lake Austin Texas

Austin Skyline Dawn Pano  -Lady Bird Lake Austin Texas – We captured this Austin Skyline before sunrise which is the best time to get some color in the sky right at dawn. Butler Shores was the only place where you can park now as many parking lots are closed in downtown due to the covid19. We wanted to capture the latest Austin skyline before downtown Austin has another transformation as we have two more high rises that they have started on in the last year that will change the skyline again very soon. The two new skyscrapers will be two hundred feet taller than the Independent or Jengal building seen in this image. The Independent now has the top crown lit which many had been waiting to see. In the last couple of years the skyline has added at least a dozen new skyscrapers along the shoreline, many which have blocked some of the old high rise buildings like the austin 360 and the Frost Bank Tower. The frost can still be seen from this angle but in many cases it is not visible any longer. This area is popular because of the many parks and hike and bike trails that are so easily usable in downtown. The city of Austin had a thriving convention business till the covid19 virus that brought many to the area which I am sure will come back soon. Austin has a population of a million people and it sometimes seem they are all downtown with all the condos they have built. Austin Texas has alway had a reputaton of a city with a vibe with it music industry like the SBSW and the ACL festives along with so many small events it too hard to name them all. We have taken many of the Texas skylines and non have had the transformation that Austin Tx has, especially along Lady Bird Lake or town lake as many old timers call it which is part of the highland lakes colorado river chain. Austin is also the home to theTexas Capitol which is one of the largest employer in downtown Austin, along with the many high tech company like Amazon, IBM, Adobe, Google to name a few. Today Austin’s population has reach one million and is one of the fastest growing city in the south.

Austin Skyline Sunrise

Austin Skyline Sunrise – We captured this image Austin skyline before the sun acually broke the horizon on this morning in the downtown area of the city. The sky painted the sky with some pinks, yellow, purple and blues which was a lovely backdrop on this day. We have been trying to capture this shot from congress bridge for some time but there was so much going on with the protest and constant building that we waited for break. Austin Texas is a popular place for tourist to visit with so many things to do, with a great music scene, art events, sporting events and many parks and lake in the area. Austin is on the edge of the Texas hill country another popular place to visit especially in the spring for the wildflower season.  Downtown Austin is beautiful modern city with some unique architecture and new high rises almost yearly.  We will need to come back in a few years as their are plans for two more buildings in the city that will be two hundred feet taller than the tallest building the Independent in Austin now. Austin skyline has been constantly changing so we have tried to catch it as the latest batch of building have been finished. This images captures the congress bridge that leads your eye to the Texas Capitol in downtown Austin. The Texas Capitol is a landmark and favorite tourist attraction to visit when people come to town. Also University of Texas is the largest university in the city and draws a large crowd for their many sporting and school events. In this Austin aerial image you can see the second tallest building the Austonian and the Frost and many others along the water front. Lately the Lady Bird Lake which is this portion of the Colorado river has been getting more and more crowed as they are constanly building new high rises along the colorado river water front. In any case it is a constantly evolving City of Austin skyline.
