Picture perfect: Iconic ACL photo op turns 7 years old

One of the most iconic sights at ACL is celebrating 7 years at the festival.

AUSTIN - One of the reasons people love going to the ACL Music Festival is because of the memories made.

But in the middle of the music, there is one attraction people just can't get enough of and form incredibly long lines for while braving the heat.

That is the “ACL Fest Photo Frame” that overlooks the Austin skyline. It has been a part of the ACL experience since 2010.

Erin Lavarone and her boyfriend Stephen are just two of the hundreds to take the famous photo.

"Of course, I'm going to drag him into it,” she said while laughing.

This is not the couple’s first time attending ACL -- but it is their first time taking a photo at the frame.

"I mean it's just like an iconic scene and the skyline's beautiful,” said Lavarone. "It's also interesting to see how the skyline changes every year to year."

The photo frame idea was the brainchild of Colin Cooper, creative designer at C3 Presents.

Randy Dees was another Texan to brave the long lines and heat to get a picture.

“It captures a lot of why we're down here,” he said.

Dees came down from Arlington with his friends and also points out how much Austin has transformed in just a year.

"They've done so much construction,” he said. “It's fun to see that change year after year.”

Both Dees and Lavarone agree that the frame’s gives them something to remember from the yearly festival.

"Give us something really fun to look back on,” said Dees.

A moment captured in time to remember more than just the music.
