Texas Alamo at Twilight

Texas Alamo at Twilight - The Alamo at Twilight right before the sun came up in San Antonio. We got an early start and left our house at 4 am because we had a long drive to get here for sunrise. We knew how busy this place can be on any given day and were trying to beat the crowds. It was still dark with just a hint of light coming into the sky when we first got there. For us this is the best time to capture the Alamo because it is one of the most popular tourist destination in the city and an almost impossible to capture without lots of tourist in front of it. The Alamo has a lot of signifance to Texas Independence and the countrys history so it is a treasured landmark. Most remember "The Battle of the Alamo from their history books which took place in 1836 when San Anna with 5000 men took on the 187 men of the Alamo and executed them all. However it was a short lived victory for Santa Anna and his men who were later defeated by General Sam Houston at the Battle of San Jacinto.

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.
