While home in Texas, we did manage to do one hike out at Enchanted Rock, a state park outside of Austin. We did the 6 mile hike that went all the way around the perimeter.
How could I resist the quintessential prickly pear shot? I've always liked the heart-shaped ones and the cliche statement on love.
I loved the tall grasses. I tried a few different versions of this, but this is really the only one that worked.
We dubbed this the "Spider Tree." The branches come out like arms ready to give you a giant hug...or eat you.
This shot was inspired by one I took of a lone tree on the fall foliage shoot (see October post). I shot this while waiting for my family to get out of view, but they really make the shot.
This was literally shooting from the hip. I like the light coming in from the left, the gnarly trees and despite not seeing much of the scenery, I feel it tells a story of it's own.
