I have been at this spot a couple of times in the past few years but it has been bone dry each time because of our extended drought. Today was different. Today was the story of spring creek.Today it was rushing. A Spring Creek on the Burton Ranch.
This Memorial Day weekend saw devastating flooding in our area of Texas. The Blanco River hit record highs and wiped away many homes and a few lives in the Wimberley area. Hours before that happene...

When we make photographs just for ourselves we have this precious small set of images that I consider revelatory.  They reveal who you are as a Photographer.  This is one of mine, maybe the top one.  I heard the land's poetry this day.

This image is a reissue.  Lately I have been printing large and I am finding some of my HDR work does not stand up well to printing large.  For this image and many others I am using only one of my bracketed images and not doing HDR.  This one just went off to the printer and will hang soon.
a grey haunting sonnet just one, lone stank stained coffee mug, grounds 'nd a taste of cold bottom brew, plus the burn of crap whiskey ...winter is lonely the wind makes a different sound in january, shrill whippings through naked branches, cooling a barren granite stone river bed ...a grey haunting sonnet pebbles and shells strewn into a chilly message, "hope is eternal for those who believe", and for those who do not? ...there is no...

My best so far of this Texas spring crop of bluebonnets.
Each year I walk our own land and our state parks looking for the one image that captures best the sights, smells, touch of our Texas Hill Country Spring. This image is the one so far but we have m...

My new photography blog.  Went back and forth on whether to start this up again.  In the end, I think we all as photographers have something useful to say (and show).

Introduction
Passionate about nature and the environment, photography, arts, outdoors/hiking, fly fishing, sports, wine/food, zen, yoga, poetry and too many other things I do not have time to explore.  

With my photography I am usually trying to do one of two things: 
1) communicate the natural world's beauty, grandeur, danger, essence.
2) an effort to merge the poetic and visual into one.
