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.

Golden Glow Over Bluebonnets

Golden Glow Over Bluebonnets – This was taken on the colorado river as the sunrise cast this golden glow over bluebonnets with these golden clouds cast their warm colors over this amazing field of wildflowers. Springtime in the Texas hill country is my favorite time because of all the wonderful wildflowers everywhere, especially when you come across a big field of bluebonnets like this it can be a magical landscape. These blueboonets were taken along the Colorado river in the Hill Country at sunrise as the sky and cloud had this golden glow. The Texas bluebonnets are a variety of blue wildflowers that grow in the State of Texas every spring which are of the genus Lupinus. Originally in 1901 the state declare only one blue bonnet the state flower however, in 1971 the Texas legislature declare that any flower found to be similar to Lupinus be declared the state flower. The name bluebonnet was from the look of the top of white part of the flower that was similar to the bonnet that woman wore on their heads in the pioneering days. The popularity of the blue bonnet grew after Lady Bird Johnson had push the Highway Beautification Act where she encorage everyone to plant native wildflowers along highways in the state. Today you can find wildflowers along many roads in Texas and the Texas Hill County has been known as one of the better places to find them. Bluebonnets love soil that drain wells and you will find them easily growing along the slopping areas along the roads. Of course some years are better than others but you don’t have to drive too far into the hill country to find them along the roads. It is almost that time for the bluebonnets to bloom anywhere between the middle of March to the middle of April depending on where and if we got the right amount of rain and sun here in central Texas. We also have other wildflowe that show up near the same time like Indian Paintbrush it changes year to year it is alway fun to see what will show up every spring.

Golden Glow over Blue Bonnets – We capture this sunrise over a field of bluebonnets through the mesquite tree just as the sun came up and it created this nice golden glow. You can see the sunset is just coming up over the horizon through the two mesquite trees in this landscape. This was a nice field of wildflowers in the texas hill country. The Texas bluebonnet or lupine was declare a state flower in 1971 by the Texas legislature. Also Lady Bird Johnson help in her push to create the Highway beautification Act which is how wildflowers in Texas took root. We can thank Lady Bird for these beautiful spring wildflowers that are across our highways and park and where ever they may be.

Sunset at Fred Hartman Bridge

Sunset at Fred Hartman Bridge – This cable stay bridge called the Fred Hartman Bridge is located out side of Houston Texas in the ship channel. The bridge was built to replace the Baytown tunnel when the channel had to be deepen for larger ships. This unique architectural bridge was completed in 1995. The bridge was named after Fred Hartman the editor and publisher of the Baytown Sun from 1950-1974. We had a hard time picking which image to select of the sunset at Fred Hartman Bridge on the ship channel outside of Houston to put on our website we took so many. This bridge is 2.6 miles long and spans across the ship channel from Baytown to La Porte Texas. The ship channel bridge is a cable stay bridge and is the longest bridge of it type in Texas. This bridge is the 77 largest in the world and one of four in Texas. The wonderful sunset at the Fred Hartman Bridge today made it difficult to pick which images to showcase as we had this incredible sky as sun set over the bridge.

Sunset at Fred Hartman Bridge –  Another capture of the Fred Hartman Bridge outside of Houston which runs across the ship channel between Baytown and La Porte Texas. This is a very long bridge which runs about 2.6 miles. On this day we had been in the area and decided to go see if we could capture it and boy did we get an incredible sunset. This bridge replaced the Baytown tunnel which went under the water because they need it to be deeper, As a child we would drive through the tunnel and I was alway scare it would collapse on us.

New Orleans Skyline at Dusk Pano

We capture this New Orleans skyline in downtown area around dusk as the high rise building light came on and it created this nice reflections in the Mississippi River. There was stil a little color in the sky from the sunset just enough to gve it some pop over the cityscape with some oranges and pinks mingle with the dark clouds. This New Orlean skyline pano was taken from across the Mississippi River at dusk. The view of the city high rise buildings along the shore line makes for a nice image as the building reflect in the water shortly after sunset.
