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.

  3. Hi Jeff

    Amazing pictures! Really like them; must be a fantastic place.

    Right now it is very hot, here in Spain, but looking ath these pictures I can almost feel some refreshning…

    Pity I wont be near Texas later in summer, I’d take the photo-safari with you otherwise 🙂

    Regards

      • Thanks for the offer, Jeff.

        I know I will visit the States sometime; I’ve certainly seen amazing pictures of the wonderful natural parcs you have there…

        I know I’m going to enjoy them. Not any definitive plans, however. It will happen sometime.

        Therefore I accept the offer :-), although I don’t know when it will be done.

        Likewise, if you happen to travel to Spain, you just drop the news in a post over here to let me know, and we will find the way of having a paella together (and to take some pictures, of course).

        Regards 🙂
