You Gotta Love a Texas Sunset

I’ve traveled near and far over the past 30 years and I’ve seen a lot of sunsets in my day, but nothing comes close to the simple beauty of a Hill Country sunset.

Folks, life is just too short to sit inside and watch TV every evening. Grab your camera, find a nice spot and wait for the magic to begin. Every sunset is a moment to be treasured!

  1. Amazing shot and amazing words. You are so right, sunsets are treasures and I’ve really been neglecting experiencing them. Thanks for the inspiration.

    • SB,

      Thanks for reading and for your kind words. I’ve been to Toronto several times in my younger days. A wonderful place filled with great folks.


  2. Great shot as always Jeff. Question for you. Where is the closest place to the city you’d recommend to get out and take in and shot, (practice for some of us), a sunset.

    • Sean,

      The Houston area is pretty flat but there are several spots in La Grange, Smithville and Bastrop that are day-trips. Monument Hill, Buescher and Bastrop state parks have many spots that are perfect for sunsets.


  3. Very nice. I’m beginning to rethink my purchase of the circular ND filters. I’m starting to understand the versatility of the graduated ones.
