Rush Hour

from 50.00

Vibrant and exciting downtown Austin, Texas shot from the Lamar pedestrian bridge looking down at Cesar Chavez St.  This is an image consisting of 41 photographs taken over a period of two hours.  1 image is for the city buildings and their respective lights and another 40 composited together to create the light trails across the road.  Austin has gained notoriety over the last 5 years as a mecca for start up companies and nightlife which has attracted a bevy of new residents.  The city always seems busy and this is an excellent representation of it coming to life after dark.  As an added bonus for us photographers, the night time skies here are fantastically free of light pollution and particulate.  So much so that on a moonless night, you can capture an entire sequence of star trails as I was able to do in this photograph.  This image, taken over the span of about an hour and a half, consists of 41 exposures-1 for the cabin and interior lights and 40 for the stars.  Taken in 30 second intervals, each exposure leaves just a hint of each stars trek across the night sky and when combined in Photoshop, the result is an incredible chronological journey through the evening routine of the cosmos.  Something which is very difficult to find anywhere else in the US.
