Austin Skyline Twilight Panorama

12-06-2014

Austin Skyline Twilight Panorama - We captured this Austin Skyline twilight panorama of the city right after sunset as their was still some light and color in the sky from along the Ladybird Lake hike and bike trail in downtown. We thought the modern Austin skyline twilight with the high rise building were brilliant against the violet colors at twilight with just a hint of the sunset colors still viewable along with the many skyscraper buildings like the Frost, Austonian, Four Season Hotel, Austin 360 and the W along with many others high rise building all crowding together along the shoreline. You can see the reflection of the skyline in Ladybird lake, but come back in a year or two and it will likely be different. The city skyline has been changing very fast over the last four or five years as new construction is popping up with new high rise buildings almost every six or seven months in this town. Austin is home to the Texas Capital and the University of Texas along with many tech companies including Apple, Amazon, IBM, Oracle, google, intel to name a few and the growth has been crazy it is fastest growing city in the US in 2016. The metro plex of Austin-Round Rock is over two million people and all you need to do is drive on IH35, or MoPac you will swear all two million are on the roads with you. Austin has government employees, students, teachers, tech companies, tech workers, musicians, plus blue collar workers. Austin is also where the slogan of Keep Austin Weird, which was the city attemp to protect small business and restaurants from its incredibly fast growth. Austin also refers to itself as the Live Music Capital for it many musicians and venues where you can hear live music around the city. Austin also has plenty of lakes with Lady Bird Lake, Lake Austin in the city limits and Lake Travis is within 20 miles to the west in the hill country.
