Christmas Tree Texas State Capitol 1

Austin, Texas

Each holiday season, the city of Austin puts up a Christmas Tree in front of the Texas State Capitol building. The tree is unique in that is continuously changes colors and patterns. From this trip, I came away with several versions of this scene - all with a different light design on the majestic tree. I enjoy shooting this location from Congress Avenue, but I usually only do it in the early morning hours before sunrise to avoid traffic. Even in this quiet time, I still often retreat to the sidewalk several times before getting the shot I want. Photo © copyright by Rob Greebon.
