Lake Travis Sunrise Reflections Landscape

Lake Travis Sunrise Reflections Landscape - We captured this beautiful sunrise landscape over the marina on Lake Travis in the Texas hill country. This was our second trip in a week because we wanted to see if we could capture the morning sunrise with some nice clouds. We had some clouds early on, but as we got closer to sunrise more moved in and it was a stunning site with the clouds above and the clouds and boat reflections in the water below. In all a good early morning sunrise landscape in the hill country. Lake Travis is located in the Texas hill country and is about thirty miles from Austin Texas the second largest city in the hill country with San Antonio the largest city in the area. Lake Travis is considered part of the Texas hill country which goes for over a thousand miles. The Texas Hill Country begins in the north where the rolling plains and prairies ends at the Balcones Escarpment in the south and east and extends west to Edwards Plateau. San Antonio and Austin are the two largest cities in the Texas hill country, some don't include them but many do so it your choice. The Texas hill country is also defined by the rugged limestone hills that separate the coastal plain from the Edwards Plateau. The Texas hill country is a number one top tourist destination. Many area of the hill country have winery's that have popped up in the last ten years and this has caused a lot of tourist to flock to these areas. Hill country wineries are available from Austin to Johnson City to Fredericksburg along with many other who now have new wineries every year. The Austin area has been steadily growing at a record pace for some time so it is not common to be able to capture any place that is not full of people and boats coming and going on most days. Thats why early morning is the perfect time, yet where we live on the lake it not possible to get this still waters, because the fishermen are speeding up and down the lake at breakneck speed to get to that favorite fishing hole long before the sun comes up.
