Fourth of July on Lake Austin

Fourth of July on Lake Austin

Doesn’t this picture remind you of the July 4th fireworks display at the Monongahela Aquatorium? Only ours is better. Just imagine what you’ld see if the photographer chose Monongahela as the subject and photographed the event from the bridge looking west. You would see the fireworks, horizon, and boats but you would also have the Aquatorium on the left and River Hill illuminated by the light of the fireworks on the right. I’ll try to get up to the bridge this week and see if I can find a spot that would mimic this picture. Maybe even post it on the blog.

BTW – the image above is the first HDR photograph to hang in the Smithsonian.
