Texas Rainforest

Gorman Falls in the Colorado Bend State Park near Lampasas, Texas is one of the most beautiful spots to photograph in the entire state. I never get tired of visiting this spot and spending hour after hour visually exploring what many have come to call the Texas Rainforest.

  2. I have never been here……..but after seeing this BEAUTIFUL image…..I REALLY want to go now. All I can say is…….WOW!

  3. First thing I see in my office in the morning is my poster of Gorman falls. You keep getting incredible images from that place. I have to see it sometime, it looks like a piece of Western Washington hidden away in Texas. Beautiful work Jeff, think I need to come learn about landscape image making.

    • I think there’s a worm-hole somewhere between Seattle and Vancouver (could be a lost Star-Gate) that transported on of your waterfalls to Texas. If we could find it, getting together for a beer would be so much easier! You could throw a few salmon and a pound of coffee through and I’d send back some bottled sunshine! Deal?

  4. Hi Jeff
    One of the most beautiful pictures I’ve seen in the recent times.
    Very good.

    Best regards

  5. Spectacular image, the light is absolutely amazing here. Gorman is always stunning, you have done a fantastic job bringing it to life here, well worth the hike!

    • Joe,

      Thanks. Gorman Falls is my favorite spot in the Hill Country. Totally unexpected setting with incredible morning light.

  6. Great shot!

    Jeff took us here on the Landscape Safari, it has to be one of the greatest secrets in Texas, the long hike down there is more than worth the trip for the incredible shooting opportunity.

    Thanks Jeff for sharing it with us!

  7. Fascinating shot, you have just added another spot to my list of “1000”or “10,000” things to see before I die. I would really like to know more about how the image was captured, the time of day, conditions and any post processing.
    I’ve started following your posts a couple weeks ago and plan to do some exploring. I would also be interested in future workshops.

    • Harold,

      This shot was captured on April 25th at 9:08 AM under a canopy of trees on a partly cloudy day. The shot was taken with a Canon EOS 5D Mark II set on aperture priority (Av) using an EF 24-105mm f/4L IS USM lens tripod mounted. The exposure was taken at 67mm, f/16 for 1/2 second at ISO 100 using a Singh-Ray LB warming polarizer filter. In Lightroom I set a custom white balance and cropped the image. Nothing else.

      Jeff
