Patterns of Light and Dark

Happy Monday Morning!

Here’s a shot I took a few weeks back on a late afternoon drive on Park Road 1C between Buescher and Bastrop state parks. Park Road 1C is 12 miles of hilly S-curves through some of the most beautiful countryside east of Austin, Texas. It’s a joy to drive in almost any season but spring and fall bring the most photographic opportunities.

A quick stop is at the small lake near the entrance of Buescher State Park. The lake is well protected by trees all around and becomes mirror smooth on quiet evenings. It’s wonderful to capture the patterns of light and dark in such a picturesque setting as this.

Have a Wonderful Week!

  1. I like this shot. I finally got some ND filters. I posted my first effort using it yesterday. I was not overly thrilled with the result. I have lots more practice ahead of me.
