That’s exactly anywhere Paul Nicklen took these astonishing shots for National Geographic.

Nature Photography – More Images from Gorman Falls

Here are two more shots taken last month at Gorman Falls in the Colorado Bend State Park near Lampasas, Texas.

I was blessed to have perfect morning light filtering through the trees for these shots and the green moss covered rocks really seemed to glow. On my immediate left was the Colorado river flowing south to the Gulf of Mexico. The water in the Colorado was its usual brown, full of red clay and silt but the water pouring over the falls was perfectly clear, cool and refreshing. The geology of the area was fascinating and beautiful falls looked as if it belonged in Hawaii, rather than some remote corner of the Texas Hill Country.

I can’t post all my photos from this shoot because I’m planning to submit an article to Texas Highways and Texas Parks & Wildlife magazines. I haven’t had any of my work published in the past 30 years so we’ll see if this old guy’s still got what it takes. I also plan to make these two posters available for sale on my blog later this month if I can get PayPal configured correctly. And I’ll also be leading a photo-safari to this location in the fall if anyone’s interested. I’ll post more details later in the summer, so stay tuned.

Landscape Photography – Longhorn Cavern State Park

This is a shot I took from the rooftop of the original park headquarters at the Longhorn Cavern State Park near Burnet, Texas. This beautiful stone building was built by the Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) back in the mid 1930 s. The Civilian Conservation Corps had a real impact on Texas by constructing the state’s first park system. The CCC was Franklin D. Roosevelt’s most popular “New Deal” programs and put unemployed men to work on conservation projects throughout the United States. The second image is a shot of the incredible arches which lead visitors down to the caverns.

Landscape Photography – Cypress

Here’s a shot I didn’t really like until I decided to “finish” it using Photoshop CS4 and Nik Software’s Color Efex Pro plug-in filters. One of my favorite filters in Nik’s collection is called “glamour glow” and although it’s not designed for landscape work, it does a great job of adding contrast and vibrance to any image. I’ve found that this works especially well for an image with an overall green tone since it really does makes the leaves seem to glow.

My inspiration for this image can be found in Diane Varner’s wonderful Daily Walks photo-blog. Diane’s mastery at nature photography and Photoshop are really second to none and I look forward to viewing her incredible images each morning.

Landscape Photography – The Road is Long…

A little nostalgia today. Does anyone out there remember when they first heard Neil Diamond’s hit “He Ain’t Heavy, He’s My Brother” back in the late 60 s? Driving down this long road in central Texas brought back that song and a host of old memories.

“The road is long with
many a winding turn
That lead us to who knows where,
who knows where
But I’m strong,
strong enough to carry him
He ain’t heavy, he’s my brother”
