I’m in Austin this weekend. One of my best friends in the world lives here and it had been forever since I’d seen him, plus some friends are competing in a CrossFit competition, so I made the 3 hour drive down.
I’m staying at a Hyatt Place here, and dang it if they’re not excellent. I’m (gasp!) spending my own money on this hotel stay and feel like I’m getting a great value for it.
Anyway, I went out shooting yesterday morning as some rainclouds were rolling in, which to me said I needed to make some gritty, desaturated-looking shots. So I did!
This is the Austin skyline from Auditorium Shores park off the Colorado River.
For the photographers
This was a 15 second exposure shot at f20, ISO 100. Only reason I went to f20 is to slow the shutter speed down enough so the water would smooth out without me having to bust out my ND filter and do a 15-minute exposure.
