Austin Skyline and Texas Capitol with Colorful Sunrise - A view looking up Congress toward the Texas Capitol with the downtown Austin skyline at sunrise. This was taken from an area referred 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. 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. Matter of fact the last time we came here we saw one bicyclist and one scoter driver in two separate incident were hit by cars almost in this same spot of course they were not in the middle of the road like I was but it was worth it. Even in this early morning hour there was plenty of activity going on. 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 Congress bridge. Update 9-28-21 D85_1174
