Lady Bird Lake: Morning Light

by Jim Beckett (1945-2016)

Archival inkjet print, 2011

This picture was just good fortune. I was taking pictures of the runners and cyclists on the Lady Bird Lake Trail on a Sunday morning. I was finished and headed back to the car and my church, when I saw these reflections and got as many shots as I could. This one has the most symmetry, detail, and surprising interactions of light on all surfaces.
