Pedernales Falls

Another sweet location Dave Wilson and I had a chance to visit was the Pedernales State Park. This State Park is also located in the Texas Hill Country between Johnson City and Dripping Springs. It was a gray drizzly day but we had a great day there regardless, doing allot of long exposure work. The Falls area is quite a unique landscape with several areas of rushing water and really cool stone formations that have eroded with time. There are two pictures posted at the entrance to the falls trail, one showing a nice serene scene like I shot above, the second shot is a raging wall of water like a levy or dam gave way. There is also a caption that the two photographs were taken less than 5 minutes apart. Due to the nature of flash floods in the area several deaths have occurred in the park. Warning sirens have been installed in the park and along the river.

Thanks for Stopping!

Austin Blue Hour

Saturday evening Dave Wilson and I, along with his son Cameron headed into downtown for the sunset and blue hour. We met up with Jim Nix and Andy ATMTX and headed towards the Auditorium Shores area of Austin along the (you can pick the name you like) Colorado River, Ladybird Lake, Town Lake. The sky was not too colorful but we did manage to get some great reflections off the lake. This was a longer exposure taken as it was just starting to get dark.

The skyline here is always changing and I believe Dave Wilson counted 8 construction cranes in the city working new additions to the Austin Skyline, they are hard to see from this low perspective. After shooting up the skyline and the Stevie Ray Vaughn statue we all went for celebratory beers at Uncle Billy’s Beer and BBQ, another end to a great day in Austin.

Thanks for stopping!
