A dreamy image of the Austin Skyline captured from the Boardwalk at Lady Bird (Town) Lake.
This image was created during the busiest time of day.
The boardwalk is packed with people and dogs walking, biking and hanging out. Yet you can’t see them.
I used a technique called daytime long exposure photography where I put a really dark filter over my lens that cuts out almost all light reaching my camera’s sensor.
This allows me to keep the shutter open for long periods of time. This exposure took 8 minutes. Anything moving on the boardwalk disappears. The water turns to glass and the sky smears.
