January 1, 2013
The fog was low and it rained all day in Austin on December 31, 2012. I didn’t have much hope when I left my house to photograph the fireworks. I knew the roof I was shooting from was 24 stories high and I was afraid I’d be immersed in a cloud. When I arrived, however, the fog lifted for about an hour or so.
This image is of downtown Austin for the New Year’s celebration 2013. The Austonian is the tallest buliding with the blue lights on top. To its left is the 360 Condos (with the spier on the top left. Across the river under the fireworks is the Hyatt. The bridges are Congress and 1st Street. The fireworks were shot across Ladybird Lake from Auditorium Shores.
Shortly after I returned to my car, the rains came again. It was a good night!
