Aerial Austin Skyline Violet Crown - We came down to capture the latest image of Austin with the recently added Google building along the shoreline of Lady Bird Lake with some autumn colors in the trees. We got that and more with these wonderful colors in the sky. Austin has been call the violet crown city in the past which is this wonderful shades of violet, purple, pinks, and blues that we capture this evening, We think of this time as the magic hour with all the violet and purples and pinks in the sky. Downtown Austin has been a city of cranes for several years so we needed to catch it in between, before the next round of high rise building start showing up. Also the fall colors were still present with the bald cypress trees along the water along with the red oaks showing there autumn colors. We wanted to show all of Austin tallest buildings the Independent, the Austonian with the newest addition of the Google as they are today. Also the image captures the Lamar Bridge, the Pfluger Pedestrian bridge, the alway colorful graffitt railroad bridge, with the rest of the bridges downstream. Austin has a wonderful hike and bike trail that runs around town lake in the downtown area where you can see the skyline from many points because of this you find people on bikes, running, walking along the trail and during the warmer weather you find kayaks, canoe, and sup all along the lake.
