Landscape Photography – Small Rapids

A couple of months ago I was hiking around the Pedernales Falls near Johnson City, Texas and happened upon this flow of water bubbling from an underground source and running back into the Pedernales river. I looked high and low but couldn’t find any sign of where the water originated from. It must have started somewhere upstream in the falls in a spot where the water flows underground before being forced back to the surface. It was an amazing set of very little rapids and makes a curious photograph to look upon.

  1. An interesting place and a terrific photograph! We have a number of small creeks around here that flourish for miles and then suddenly disappear underground. Intriguing!
