Barton Springs Pool and Austin Skyline BW

Barton Springs Pool and Austin Skyline BW - This was another aerial capture of barton springs pool in the late afternoon in early September in black and white. The wonderful blue water of the barton pool really is inviting looking at the pool from above. The pool itself it a natural spring fed pool that around 900 feet long before it drops down to barton creek on it way to lady bird lake downstream. At this time there were few people in the water which was unsual but dont worry they all show up later in the evening. Barton Springs pool is an Austin landmark and one of the most visited sites in the city. The pool is spring fed so the water is a constant 68 degrees so sometimes it warmer in the pool however not today. many people come here early before the sun comes up to take a dip in the spring fed waters. We were surprised their were so few people when we got here but most were in the area below the pool. Barton spring pool waters are from a spring fed aquafers and they took this natural area and dammed each end so that the water would be a constant level with a 900 foot pool. The waters from Barton creek flows around the pool under the sidewalks which makes it way to Lady bird lake as it flows downstream of Austin. Barton Springs pool located in Zilker Park in downtown Austin and is landmark for the city. This iconic site is also home to an endangered salamander but it was determined that the salamander and people could coexit together as they had been doing for over many many years. There is almost no day now that the whole park area is not over flowing with people but today was lighter than usual which for us was a plus! In my younger days I practically lived here but now a little older I figure my body couldn't take the shock of 68 degree waters.

Canvas wrap

Canvas wraps are printed on white archival poly-cotton blend matte canvas. The canvas is wrapped on a 1.5" stretcher framed and finished with a durable black backing. The gallery wrap arrives at your doorstep ready to hang. After an order is submitted, the canvas usually arrives within 5-6 business days. While canvas wraps are more expensive, there is no need for matting and framing. After a fine art print is matted and framed, the cost is often equivalent or even slightly more than a canvas wrap.
