Sightseeing at Enchanted Rock

As many of you know the Spring 2011 Texas Landscape Safari has been scheduled for April 25th – 28th, 2011 and one of the locations we’ll be photographing is Enchanted Rock State Natural Area near Fredericksburg, Texas.

The trails around and up Enchanted Rock offer hundreds of great photographic opportunities under the right conditions. Early morning can be amazing time to photograph the unique geology of this area but late evening is when the light becomes something special.

From the top of Enchanted Rock you can literally see the Texas Hill Country for miles and miles in every direction. One of my favorite things to do in this beautiful park is to climb to the peak and watch the skies for thunderstorms building in the north. But even on a quiet evening, the sunset from atop Enchanted Rock is a sight not to be missed.
