Travel Day Post

I apologize for not posting something new but Monday was a travel day and I had no real chance to shoot. So I’m posting a sunset image taken last year at my favorite spot in Sugar Land, Texas.

By the time you read this post I should be photographing Gorman Falls in the Colorado Bend State Park, near Lampasas, Texas. It’s a 2 mile hike to the falls and if everything goes as planned I should be there at first light. First I have to drive about 30 miles of winding dirt road in the utter dark. And I mean DARK!

I had planned on hiking the trail to the falls late Monday afternoon but the 100F heat made me think twice. My hydration/camera pack from ClikElite only holds 1 liter of water and that wouldn’t last for 2- 3 hours in the scorching Texas sun. Better to leave a first light when the temperature’s around 75F.
