Hiking Palo Duro Canyon State Park

I apologize for being so quiet lately but I’m neck deep in the final edits for my new book “Landscapes of the Texas Plains and Canyons” which will (hopefully) definitely be available before Christmas.

Here’s another image taken with my Canon PowerShot G10  a few weeks ago and finished in Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 3. For a landscape photographer, hiking through Palo Duro Canyon State Park is a bit like driving in Houston’s rush hour traffic (without the guns). Stop-Shoot-Start. Stop-Shoot-Start. Stop-Shoot-Start.

There are way too many photographic opportunities to choose from and not nearly enough time before sunset. I guess that why many Texas photographers return to the canyons year after year!

  1. Jeff … I spent 6 hours hiking in Palo Duro park 2 years ago at the end on this November. No crowds, sunshine, warm and some of the most fantastic landscape that I have seen. I made it to the top of some lookout point that I forget the name of right now and the view was spectacular. I may forget names but I will always remember the scenery.

    Good luck with the book … eBook or print?

    • George,

      My second book “Landscapes of the Texas Plains & Canyons” will be available in print before the holidays and as an eBook on iTunes in spring 2011.


  2. Greetings from Costa Rica!,

    this is marvelous, what a beautiful land and beautiful photography… I love my little G10 and these spectacular pictures make me proud of having this camera 😉 jejeje.
    Best wishes with the book… I hope you´ll be able to merchandise it internationally so we can buy it here in my country as well.

    • Jose,

      Thanks for reading and for you kind words. I ship books just about anywhere in the world these days and Costa Rica is not that far from Texas! 🙂
