There’s a parking garage at 9th and Lavaca which affords one a great view of the Texas capitol. It’s a great angle for a morning shot because the sun rises in the background. I was hoping for that on this day, but instead the weather decided to be misty and drizzly. I’m glad it was because I think I’m happier with this shot than I would have been had it been a clear day!
When Eileen and I went out to the Hill Country a couple of weeks ago to shoot wildflowers, this view appeared while driving on Farm to Market Road 1431. It was one of those views that made me think, “Wow, I need to capture that!” Not sure exactly where on 1431, but I think it was around the Jonestown/Lago Vista area.
It’s funny, when I go out to shoot things such as wildflowers, my mind is also running around the landscapes I can see trying to find that “great shot”. Sometimes it drives me crazy looking for a shot where ever I am because I feel it takes away from just enjoying what I’m seeing. Any of you have that dilemma? Don’t get me wrong, I like to shoot photos, but once in a while it’s just nice to enjoy where you are.
With that said, I hope you enjoy this shot and thanks for stopping by!
