Driving into Austin the night before was so colorful I vowed to head downtown and capture the color of sunset with the downtown skyline as the backdrop.  Not having been here in over 2 years, I wasn’t quite sure of the angle but picked a spot I thought would as least be OK.  Construction fences were there to greet me.  I quickly drove down the road and dove into the next parking lot along the river.  Too thick with too much poison oak.  Strike 2.  Walking along the trail a bit, I noticed quite a crowd of people gathered on and under what I recognized as the Congress St. bridge.  Aha!  Sunset was fast approaching and all were waiting for the bridge bats to awaken.  They put on their nightly show on a beautiful, warm evening.
