Lake Travis panorama

We captured this aerial panorama of Lake Travis near Austin after the recent rains. You can see there is only a hint of sometimes island left. The sky was great with the puffy white clouds and the boats everywhere. The trees tops on the island are still visible just breaking the surface. In this photo you can see from the dam all the way to the other side of Wendy Point. It is great to see water again in the lake again.

Sunset Lake Travis – Last peak sometimes island

Last nights sun set over the main ‘bowl’ of Lake Travis turned out to be spectacular.  The clouds moved in at the last minute and lit up the sky with awesome colors.  We sent up the S900 and captured this aerial image.  This is the last view of some times island as the lake continues to rise from all the rain we have had over the last month.  Lake Travis is up over 34 feet and is expected to rise 2 to 3 more feet by the end of May….

 

This is an aerial image taken at sunset as the last peak of sometimes island is still visible on Lake Travis outside of Austin.  It is expected to go completely underwater for the first time since 2010.  Look quick because they start letting water out again to the rice farmer on June 18th so you will see it again. You can see the boats going over what use to be land and the colorful sunset  gave a nice farewell to the island (Tod Grubbs)

Sunset Lake Travis

After a week of heavy rain this was the first sun set we were able to capture with our DJI S900 hex copter with the Sony A7R 36 mpix camera.   This was the second flight with the camera mounted on the S900.

This is a section of the lake we live on and it is our first capture of an aerial sunset over Lake Travis using our new DJI-S900 with the Sony A7R 36 mg pixel camera.  It did what we hoped gave us high quality images. You can see the boat racing toward the sunset and the boat docks not as far down as they were just two days ago since the lake rose by about 8ft over night.  We have had to wait because the sun has been in hidding for a while now so this was our first chance to capture a sunset.  Of course another round of rain and dark skies are headed our way.

Heavenly Sunset on Lake Travis

This is another scenic sunset image of a great sky from the Oasis on Lake Travis. Love the way the light radiated out through the clouds giving it this heavenly glow. The sun was right at this line of clouds enough to diffuse the rays of lights and pick up sone nice orange colors for a spectacular evening. Lake Travis is about 20 to 30 minutes from Austin at the right time of day. You can still see the lake is down but it is still an impressive view from here. This is one of the best places to see the lake and for a few lucky few that have a boat dock on the lake they can still get on it without too much effort, but most of the public ramps our out of the water due to the drought in this area. You can see one lone boat racing toward the sunset below.

Bluebonnet Trail

Here is another bluebonnet field we found,  it had this trail that seems to go on endlessly in this huge field of bluebonnets and oak trees.

We loved this trail through the field of endless bluebonnets on this Texas Hill Country ranch the path seem to meander throughout this great field of flowers. (Tod Grubbs & Cynthia Hestand)

Bluebonnet Farmhouse Sunset

We have been waiting for several years to captures this old farmhouse in the Texas Hill country west of Austin with a field of bluebonnets and finally this year they had flowers.  After several years of drought this area finally got some rain last winter and had a few flowers.   On one of several visits this season the skis opened up after being over cast all day to an awesome sunset.

We came back a second time to captured this old farmhouse with a little closer view with a field of bluebonnets in front of it in the Texas Hill Country making a nice landscape image. (Tod Grubbs & Cynthia Hestand)

Bluebonnet Sunset

This is a panorama we took of a wonderful field of bluebonnet at sunset along the Colorado river outside of Austin TX. You can see the nice sky with a big orange and yellow sun casting it glow over the landscape with nothing but endless blue bonnets as far as the eye can see. We captured this image last year, the blue bonnets did not come back up in this area this year as there were many areas that did not come back this year, just happy we were able to captured this image.
