The plan was to go bat watching at the Congress Street Bridge and maybe get some photos. Better luck next time. The bats were fabulous of course but my photographic skills are not up the challenge (yet?). Open to any and all tips =)
The clouds and clouds of bats swooshing past were spectacular. When the first cloud emerged the hillside of bat watchers lit up with a couple hundred cell phones! Amusing.
Austin’s skyline has been completely transformed from when I first moved here. At that time there were only a couple of skyscrapers — most of the buildings were close to the street and clothed with sandstone, brick or limestone surfaces. These days the buildings are tall and made of glass and mirror. Amber and gold have replaced the old school blue glass.
