Austin Skyline - Summer Evening 728-1

Austin, Texas

This wide-angle image taken from atop the Hyatt Hotel on Ladybird Lake shows the beautiful calm water with the Austin skyline across the way. Both Congress Bridge (right) and the First Street Bridge (left) cross Ladybird Lake, and most iconic highrises of the skyline are in this photograph, including the Austonian (683’) the Frost Tower, and the Independent (the newest and tallest at 690’). Working with the Hyatt, I was able to photograph this beautiful downtown scene on a warm summer evening, documenting the ever-changing landscape of this fast growing capital city.
