I went out hiking and shooting photos at the Balcones Canyonlands National Wildlife Refuge. I am a bit disappointed with the results as I don’t think these photos really work all that well. But I am posting this anyway as this is all a learning experience for me. It was a bit breezy and sunny… Read More A Hike in the Tall Grass
Sunday afternoon I had to get out of the house. I didn’t think that there would be much to shoot around town judging by the mostly dry pond last week, so I just drove out to Inks Lake in the late afternoon.
