SOCO View of Texas Capitol Dark

SOCO View of Texas Capitol Dark - A view looking up Congress toward the Texas Capitol in downtown with the Austin skyline at dawn. This was taken from an area refered to as SOCO which stand for South Congress. The soco area is a hip and trendy spot full of restaurants, shops, and night life which just happens to be in view of the Austin downtown along with the Texas capitol in this twilight image. This was taken in the early hours as I waited for the sun to come up rather the pre-dawn as it is still pretty dark but the capitol is nicely lit and you can see a little color starting to show. There are very few times you can stand in the middle of the road in this area without being hit by a car so we haven't been back here in years. Matter of fact the day before we took this while taking other pictures in downtown Austin we saw one bicylist and one scoter driver in two separate incident were hit by cars almost in this same spot of course they were not in the middle of the road like I was but it was worth it. Austin Texas is a vibrant active city it is hard to find times where you can photograph some scenes because this city doesn't seem to stop. In this view you can see the capitol, the Frost Tower, the Austonian the second tallest building along with many others. The dividing line for south congress to north congress is Lady Bird Lake.
