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. Actually people were everwhere in the parks today, on the water in their canoes, sups all enjoying the nice day with blue skies and the water was flowing only slightly with allow reflection from of the clouds in the water. You can even see the state capitol dome top in the far left of skyline in the scene for another beautiful day in Austin Texas.

UT Tower Magic Hour Panorama – We captured this U T Tower, Stadium and campus right at the magic hours as the sky lit up with colorful pinks, blues, and orange sky in a 3 to one panorama. Some refer to this as the blue hours which is after sunset and right before sunrise. The sky had this wonderful pinks, orange, yellow and blue glow which seem a perfect back drop to the tower and stadium in this three to one pano. The UT Tower can be seen from quite a distance in downtown Austin so it is a landmark for the school and the city of austin. We capture this before the tower light went out so it gave a nice contrast against the colorful sky. The UT tower and some of the other buildings like the student union and the Darrell K Royal stadium were in view.
The stadium is also called the Darrell K Royal-Texas Memorial Stadium. UT Austin is a flagship school know for it research in science and medicine along with advance educational opportunities.
