The Road is Long

Well, I’ve finally caught up on some much needed sleep and uploaded all my shots from last weekend’s Hill Country trip. As I said in my last post, the good Lord must have been watching out for me because the weather in central Texas was nothing less than spectacular. While Houston was wilting under heat indices over 110F, we were enjoying 85F afternoons with 50% relative humidity. Unbelievable for August in the Texas Hill Country.

Like most journeys through central Texas, I racked up over 800 miles of Hill Country roads in my quest to photograph the rivers in this region. As I’ve said before, Texas is a really big place and we’re very lucky to have some of the best maintained state and county roads of any place I’ve ever traveled.

And talk about beauty! With skies like this, what more could a traveling photographer ever ask for?
