Here's a shot of the Pennybacker Bridge in Austin, Texas. I took this after midnight under a full moon on a warm Friday night late last summer. I had to wait a while to claim a good spot amongst all the young couples having a late-night "picnic." I shot this at f/8, ISO 200 for 30 seconds on a sturdy Manfrotto tripod. The wind was blowing harder than the photo suggests, so I had to hold down the tripod for the duration of the exposure to keep it steady, and it's a fairly heavy tripod. I wasn't planning on working out the old guns that night! I think by the time I took this particular shot my arms were shaking from all the work, so I do notice a bit more softness than I'd like in the image. Hopefully someone out there enjoys it...

I took this image of a sunset on Lake Travis near Austin, Texas. It was one of the most beautiful sunsets I've seen in the last couple years, and I was lucky to have my camera with me to capture it. Thanks!

I took this image at dusk near the water tower in Round Rock, Texas last December. As you can see, the town was decorated for Christmas and that tower was visible from miles away. I know it's probably not the best time of year to upload this but I didn't want to forget about it. Thanks!
