Canyon Clouds

I apologize for not posting earlier but I just returned from the Hill Country and I’m running on about 4 hours of sleep in three days. The weather in the Hill Country near Garner State Park and Lost Maples State Natural Area was spectacular this weekend and my goal of shooting all the major rivers in the area left me with little time for sleep. I drove over 800 miles in just under 48 hours and 90% of it was on county and farm-to-market roads.

It will take me a few days to catch up on my sleep and process all the shots I took, so here’s a little something to hold you over. I never get tired of looking at those beautiful Texas clouds.

    • Thanks Sabrina.

      Your kind words always bring me comfort. It was a wonderful trip and I’ve gotten some really nice shots to share in the days to come.


  1. Lovely photo, as I’d expect. I’m really glad to learn about Caprock Canyon. We’re looking to visit central Texas this winter for some birding and this looks like a wonderful addition to our itinerary.

    • Michael,

      If you’re coming to Texas from Port Townsend please bring my friend Ray Ketcham and two pounds of PT coffee along with you. You won’t find a better commercial photographer on the peninsula and I’m running low on good coffee here in Texas. I’ll meet you anywhere this side of the Pecos River. 🙂
