Pedernales Falls State Park is perhaps one of the best kept photographic secrets in the Texas Hill Country. Folks that visit the 6000 acre park are often amazed at how vast the falls really are and how the scale of these rocks can be deceiving from a distance. Having hiked the area extensively over the years, I still find new sections of the falls I’ve yet to explore. Each stair-step section you climb leads to another and another as this unique geology extends almost two miles upstream in the Pedernales River.
Folks that attend the Texas Landscape Safari always enjoy a good sunset to photograph on a quiet spring evening in April. This is a small slice of heaven folks, right here in Texas!
