Austin Downtown Skyline Night Pano

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.

Texas Capitol from Austin SOCO Sunrise – A 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. This was taken in the early hours as I waited for the sun to come up rather the pre-dawn as it is still pretty dark but the capitol is nicely lit.

Texas Windmill with Milky Way

Texas Windmill with Milky Way – We captured this celestial night sky with this Texas windmill with the water tank in silouette between some trees as the night sky was full of stars with the milky way just overhead. You can see that the windmill was spinning on this night with only a slight breeze we heard the windmill even before we got out of the car. Also we liked the added touch of the silouette of the prickly pear in the scene just to the right of windmill. The night sky with the stars and the galaxy overhead with a windmill is one of those iconic Texas thing we like to capture in a starscape. The milkyway is the galaxy that contains our solar system. The term milky is derived from the appearance from earth of the galaxy. The stars that make up the milky way are giant, luminous spheres of plasma and the galaxies consist of stars, stellar remnants, dust, gas, and dark matter, bound together by gravity. This starry night scene with wind mill and galaxy is iconic scene thoughout the Texas hill country it just finding one that not too close to a city. Oh the really bright star to the left of the windmill is the planet Venus. The Texas night sky can be awesome if you can find a place where it is not over run with light pollution from nearby cities. Many places have taken the dark skies initiative which reguired cut off lighting which has help a lot. Normally we might go to far west texas for a starscapes, but things are not up and running as normal because of covid 19 this year.

Milky Way Over Haybales

Milky Way Over Haybales – The Texas Hill country can be a great place to capture the milky way over some haybales west of Llano where the skys are a little darker. Only a few times a year can the milkyway can be seen from this angle so we took advantage of the bales of hay for the evening capture. Even still this area has some light pollution but not like some other places. The milkyway is the galaxy that contains our solar system. It is not alway easy to see the stars or the milky way because of light pollution in our area so we travel west where there is less pollution, but to get really dark skies you have to go to Big Bend area in Texas. For us this time it was not possible to go there, but we were able to capture the milky way out west past Llano Texas. We alway like to have something in our images that has meaning that shows a sense of place to our images. We came across this simple traditional Texas scene of haybales in a field at a ranch in the Texas Hill Country west of Llano Texas and like the look. We like this field of haybales with the backdrop of the milky way in the view what could be better. In this image we allowed the cars to light paint the haybales so we could bring it out better in the image. Every starry nightscape in the Texas Hill country we have photographed has some light pollution however when we are photographying it appears pitch black. Even in this photo you can see some light pollution creeping in but the awesome milkyway over rides a little light pollution in this Texas night skies image with the milkyway clearly in view.

Texas Milky Way Skies –  This is another capture of the milky way over the haybales deep in the heart of Texas. The milkyway can be seen from this angle in Texas late at night in the evening only a few times a year so we took advantage and capture a few shots. The milkyway is the galaxy that contains our solar system. The term milky is derived from the appearance from earth of the galaxy. The stars that make up the milky way are giant, luminous spheres of plasma and the galaxies consist of stars, stellar remnants, dust, gas, and dark matter, bound together by gravity. It is not alway easy to see the stars or the milky way because of light pollution in our area so we travel west where there is less pollution but you have to go to Big Bend area inorder to get really dark skies in Texas. For us this time it was not possible to go there, but we were able to capture the milky way out past Llano Texas.  We alway like to have something in our images that has meaning that shows a sense of place to our images.  We came across this simple traditional Texas scene of haybales in a field at  a ranch in the Texas Hill Country west of Llano Texas and like the look.  We like this field of haybales with the backdrop of the milky way in the view what could be better.   In this image we allowed the cars to light paint the haybales so we could bring it out better in the image.  Every starry nightscape in the Texas Hill country we have  photographed has some light pollution however when we are photographying it you don’t see any lights not sure where it is coming from.  Even in this photo you can see the light pollution creeping in but the awesome milkyway over rides a little light pollution in this Texas night skies image with the milkyway of the galaxy clearly in view. 

Dallas McDermott Bridge Reflection Pano 007

Dallas McDermott Bridge Reflection Pano 007 – The new Margaret McDermott Bridge in downtown Dallas with skyline at twilight. We captured this after a rain storm so there was water in the Trinity for a nice reflection of the city and bridge. This is a steel bridge suspended with two arches over the Trinity River previously IH30 and is part of the Trinity project. This bridge is also designed to accomodate a pedestrian and bike path to join the area other hike and bike trails. This city skyline has all the usual iconic dallas buildings most promenant like the Reunion Tower, Bank of America, to the alway colorful Omni Hotel in view plus many other high rise buildings in the city downtown area. Dallas is located in north Texas and is a modern city with many varieties of commercial business along with being cultural hub of the region. Downtown’s Sixth Floor Museum at Dealey Plaza commemorates the site of President John F. Kennedy’s assassination in 1963. The city has a large Arts District, with the Dallas Museum of Art, the Crow Collection of Asian Art and many other art, music and culture entertainment areas. We stumble upon the Deep Ellum area on a Saturday night and I can say this place was a happening place with restaurants and music venues all through out this area. This is a vibrant city that offers a lot to tourist and local who visit the downtown. was a twilight view from here but not an easy shot I had to climb up the side of levy then down again on the other side and then wade into the water to capture this image of the Dallas skyline with the McDermont bridge to create this nice reflection.

We captured this after a rain storm so there was water in the Trinity for a nice reflection of the city and bridge. This is a steel bridge suspended with two arches over the Trinity River previously IH30 and is part of the Trinity project partially designed by Santiago Calatrava. This bridge is also designed to accomodate a pedestrian and bike path to join the the area other hike and bike trails. It was a twilight view from here but not an easy shot I had to climb up the side of levy then down again on the other side and then wade into the water to capture this image of the Dallas skyline with the McDermont bridge to create this nice reflection, I think it was worth it.

360 Bridge After Dark

360 Bridge After Dark – Austin 360 Bridge at dark with a little color still left in the sky from the sunset as the car trails cross the bridge. The 360 bridge is a popular spot to photograph the sunset but it is also a heavyily used road that why I did a long exposure to show how busy this road is as it is a connection from north to south of the city as the car trail show after dark not someplace to be at 5 pm if you can help it. This is on the edge of the Texas hill country near Austin with Lake Austin for boating, picnicing and other recreational activities so it is a popular place.

Queen Isabella Causeway after Dark Pano

Queen Isabella Causeway after Dark Pano – Looking out on the Queen Isabella Causeway after dark you can still see a little color left in the sky from the sunset earlier in the evening. This bridge is two miles long and is the only route in to South Padre Island. The light on the bridge are reflecting back in the water after dark. The Queen Isabella Causeway is about two miles long and is the sole source for getting to the island from the mainland by vehicals. In 2001 a barge hit the bridge and destroyed a 160 foot section and till it was rebuilt the people had to travel by ferry to get to and from the island for several months till it was repair. Also a special note for those who lost their lives on that tragic night.

Austin Aerial Skyline Twilight View

Austin Aerial Skyline Twilight View – Austin Aerial skyline view at Twilight taken from a birds eye view. This is another Austin skyline aerial image of the Austin twilight view looking down Lady Bird Lake with the city modern high rise buildings along the shoreline of the lake and looking north over IH35 where you can see the UT stadium and Erwin Center in the distant view. You can see Austin tallest building the Austonian which for a few months longer will hold that title till the Independent is completed sometime before the end of the year. It has been hard to capture images of Austin skyline from anywhere along the hike and bike trail because they are constantly adding new building along the shoreline. About the time you think they are done new cranes show up. Just recently found out that we will have two new buildings along the town lake shoreline once more and they will be taller than the Independent so its title will not last long. Just like all good things they don’t last long you can barely see the top of the Frost building, at one time it was the tallest building in the skyline. The cityscape has been constantly changing for years and I guess until all the land is gone it will continue. Actually from this spot in the 70’s you had a straight on view of the Texas Capital those days have been gone for many years now.
