Austin Trails of Lights and Zilker Christmas Tree 2023

Austin Trails of Lights and Zilker Christmas Tree 2023 - The Zilker Holiday Tree and Trail of Lights with the Austin skyline in the back ground is the beginning of the Christmas Holiday. The Zilker Christmas tree or Holiday Tree is actually a moonlight tower that have over 3000 colorful lights which are strung from it to creates a nice 155 foot Christmas tree for the city. This has been Austin Christmas tree since 1967. Austin skyline has been making changes yearly so we have to capture a new image almost every year. We used a longer lens on this aerial camera to capture the tree with the skyline longer focal length to capture the skyline with the trail of lights and the zilker tree. This is such a popular holiday image we decided to go get a current version since so many new buildings have been built in the last several years so here it is. In this image you can see the sixth and guad building is finally finished. With just a peep from the top of the Frost Bank building in view which was one of the first skyscraper in the city now you can only see the top from here. The trail of Lights is one of the longest running events in the Austin Texas. They have all kind of event with it including a fun run, UT night, special nights so all can get in on the action. This is an annual holiday event for Austin you can see the colorful lights this year at the trail of lights beginning on December 8, 23. In this view can see beautiful Austin skyline with the usual iconic buildings in the skyline like the Independent, the Austonian and the new Google condos along with many other new high rises as a back drop to the Holiday Tree and Christmas Trail of Lights.
