Austin Boardwalk

A cloudy gray morning in Austin along the Ann and Roy Butler Hike-and-Bike Trail at Lady Bird Lake, a lush, urban path that meanders along the water’s edge and passes by neighborhoods, ball fields, and cultural attractions. The boardwalk also has great views of the ever-changing Austin Skyline. As I mentioned the sky was gray and cloudy when we arrived but we hung around for a bit as the clouds started to break up and we did manage to capture a few shots before retreating from the heat.

 

Thanks for stopping!

Bullock Museum

While shooting the Capitol Building in downtown Austin Dave Wilson and I made our way a few blocks down Congress Ave. to have a look at the Bullock Texas State History Museum. The Giant Texas Star in front of the museum is frequently photographed so I had to point my camera at it as well since I was in town.

For a different look, I took out my new 11-24 for a cool perspective on the star and museum, getting pretty close to the star in the process. I am sure the museum would be a great visit but unfortunately, it was closed at the time and Dave and I were ready for a cold one.

Thanks for stopping!
