I went to #Austin this summer and my friend and I went on a 100° walkabout along the South end just north of the Colorado River. We stopped at a few bars to cool off along the way, and of course I had my #OlympusPEN. It's very difficult to get good lighting when the sun is so high in the middle of the day. I did manage to get a few good shots, like this tree from within the shade of itself. If you look beyond the subject, you can almost feel that Texas heat we tried to dodge as much as possible. I can't help but appreciate nature wherever I go. I notice Fibonacci patterns in trees all the time, how their branches seem to all grow and split, maintaining such an even coverage of leaves throughout a space. Beauty in chaos.
