Sunfish!

To finish off the series of new stuff on the Riverwalk:


Under IH35 at Camden there are giant sunfish hanging over the river.
It's really cool.
I can't wait to get down there again and pick some better angles from which to shoot, now that the public is allowed access.
Unlike some people I don't cross barriers put up to prevent unauthorized access.
Unless I think I can get away with it.


A close-up of the fish in all their internally-lit goodness.

People driving overhead have no idea what's below.
Did I mention that it's really cool?

Hey, the San Antonio Museum of Art is holding a photo contest for the Museum Reach. You should check it out.

Yeah--my camera club has an inside track on this.
Local SA Flickr users should join us--search groups for flickrclubsa.
I will need to walk and shoot the entire new section a few more times before entering anything in the contest. Now that it's officially open I can find the best angles, and these test shots have told me exactly when I need to be on-location to get the amount of light I want.
I'm excited by the possibilities, especially when the newness wears-off a little. Have you seen the crowds? Wow!
