Landscape Photography – Shadows

Just a quick post to start off your weekend on the right foot. I took this shot last month at the Pedernales Falls State Park in Johnson City, Texas. It was a warm evening with an even warmer breeze blowing in from the south. The sun was just over the horizon and sinking fast behind the trees west of this section of the falls. It’s always nice to take a few shots right before the sun sets. The long dark shadows bring out the wonderful textures all around you.

I’m heading down to Goliad, Texas this weekend to shoot at the Presidio de la Bahia & Mission Espiritu Santo de Zuniga historic sites for my book. Have a wonderful weekend and get out there and make some great exposures!

    • Thanks Sheldon,

      It was a pretty good trip and I got a few nice shots that I’ll share later this week. The book project started out as a simple self-published compilation as a gift for friends and family next Christmas. One of my friends looked at my idea and thought I might be able to sell some on my blog since the publishing costs per book are fixed (in small lots). It’s also a great personal project to document my best forty or fifty shots from around Texas and share the details with amateur landscape photographers (including the location, time of year, time of day, camera, lens, etc.) looking for locations in Texas. Not a “how to” book but more a “where to” book.

      More to come in future posts.
