Photo of the Day: Austin sunset

With any luck, plenty of people will witness at least one gorgeous Austin sunset over the course of the next two weeks. SXSW, a music, film, and interactive festival that takes place annually in Austin, Texas, kicks off this Friday. The city of Austin is expecting more attendees than ever this year. Even the usually quiet streets of East Austin, where this unedited photo was taken, will be bustling with tourists who carved away time from their schedules back home to visit Austin and soak up all of the creativity and related information that they can. Although the weather forecast is looking a bit dreary for Austin over the next few days, I’m crossing my fingers for another sunset like this one captured by Ben Britz. Everyone deserves to experience one of Austin’s best features: the sky.
