Austin, Texas – Lou Neff Point

The Austin Skyline is a beautiful sight.  There are a few great places to photograph it.  This shot above is from Lou Neff Point.  I was up early this morning recently with the frogs and bugs.  It was so quiet, I could hear the fish splashing around the water.    In this long exposure photo you can even see the clouds hanging over the building tops.   I was hoping for a nice sunrise shot, but it was a bit too cloudy this morning.

I wanted to post this shot from Austin as we had a gathering of HDR photographers for a great lunch at Chuy’s just down the street from here yesterday.  We all know each other well and occasionally get a chance to shoot together.  It was wonderful to chat about all things photography.  If you have a few known photographers in your area…get together if you can.  It is fantastic to share info…the latest software, photos, locations, etc…   Here are some of photographers that I met up yesterday (check out their blogs if you have time):
