Lake Travis Sunrise

Lake Travis Sunrise - In the early morning right before the sun came up we capture the sunrise colors over this marina on Lake Travis outside of Austin Texas. The water was perfectly still and just as the sky begins to light up with these wonderful colors of reds, pinks, orange, and deep blues it back lit the clouds in the lake and with enough light to see these sailboats with some nice boat and cloud reflections in the calm water. It is seldom that the water is still enough to get good reflections of these sailboats at the marina, but today it work out well today. This was our second trip to this spot as the week before there were no clouds but both images turned out well. We were able to capture the sailboats all lined up with their mast reflecting in the smooth waters of Lake Travis with the sky reflected into the waters. Lake Travis is located in Travis county about a thirty minute drive from downtown Austin Texas, of course it depends on what time of day you travel it could be up to an hour and half at peak traffic times. Lake Travis is considered the beginning 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 citys in the Texas hill country. The Austin area has been steadly growning 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. 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.
