Texas Landscape Safari Update 2

Update: I’m heading out to West Texas for a few days of landscape and nature work for my book. Just so y’all won’t be too lonely without my regular posts, here are a few links full of beautiful Texas scenery to inspire you!

We still have a few spots open for our Texas Landscape Safari workshop scheduled for October 18 – 21, 2009 in the beautiful Texas Hill Country. Now that the rains have returned and the weather looks to be wetter in September and October, the rivers and streams should be running and provide some wonderful shots for our attendees.

Here’s a quick look at what we’ve scheduled for this workshop. You can click on this image to be taken directly to our Google Map for the workshop.

No Blog Tuesday – Sick in Bed!

No regular post today folks as I’ve come down with some bug (not the flu maybe the flu Not the Flu!) and I feel like I’ve been run over by Ford F150. Damn, I hate getting old.

To make up for it please check out Paul Hinrichs’ Flickr Set taken during last month’s Texas Landscape Safari. We all had a great time wandering around the Texas Hill Country, getting some really nice shots and eating some down-home Texas cooking.

I’m just about finished with my new (self-published) book entitled “Hill Country Landscapes” and (Lord willing) it should be available before Christmas. I’ll post more details next week.

Update: Off to the doctor for a flu test. On a brighter note, it looks like two of my recent G10 landscape shots have been chosen to be published in Peachpit Books upcoming “Canon G10/G11: From Snapshots to Great Shots”. It also looks like an article I wrote for Singh-Ray’s blog should be published soon.

Update 2: Not the Flu. Doc gave me a prescription that stopped the worst symptoms and I slept 12 hours. I’m feeling much better today and should be back up and running by Thursday. My sincere thanks to everyone for your concern.
