I traveled to Austin yesterday morning in an attempt to shoot the skyline in the blue hour. Unfortunately the spot I had chosen to shoot from turned out to be no good and I didn’t have time to relocate before the light changed. Disappointed, I decided to explore the downtown area to find a better vantage point for my next attempt. In the process, I came across this building on fire. Most of the streets around the fire were blocked off so I parked and ran the three blocks to where the action was. It was an amazing site and when the sun began to rise up through the smoke, I forgot all about my previous disappointment.
