A Little Serenity

I met a couple of photographer buddies in downtown Austin last weekend. They had been taking photos around town in the morning and they decided to walk down the trail along Lady Bird Lake. It's July and that means it is brutally hot out. Taking the humidity into account, heat indexes are running into the 110F degree range.

One of the bridges provided welcome shade and a bit of photographic interest. Plenty of people were paddling by on the lake and many paused under the bridge for a break from the scorching sun. It was still quiet hot and muggy on the river bank under the bridge. Still, there was a peaceful serenity there that we enjoyed for a few moments before calling it a wrap on photographic pursuits and retreating to a nice air condition bar for a few cold beverages.
