Sometimes Magic Happens

Many times a landscape photographer will return to his or her favorite locations month after month and year after year, waiting for that perfect combination of light, subject and mood to create a lasting impression. I have several “spots” like this scattered throughout the Texas Hill Country and I return regularly to see if I can capture their magic.

Landscape and nature photography is a lot like baseball. The more times at bat, the better your average. Once in a while you find a spot that resonates with you and magic just happens. For me, that spot is Gorman Falls. When the Lord provides this much beauty tucked away in such a remote corner of the world you just know it’s providence.

  1. You certainly caught a beautiful moment, Jeff! For that place I think I might consider camping there for a few days.

  2. Jeff, beautiful composition and capture! Love the way the mist and light rays make the scene look surreal.

    • Thanks Michael.

      “Freekin Gorgeous” is quite a compliment. I needed that after a long week fighting this eye infection.
