Landscape Photography – Stone and Cedar

As I first walked down the hill from where I had parked, I noticed the unusual color of the water in these pools at Pedernales Falls. I thought perhaps it was a trick of the sun reflecting off the stone and cedar which surrounds the falls on both sides. When I climbed down to the falls I found that the water was crystal clear but each pool seemed to glow with this beautiful green color from the moss growing at the bottom. With the water also reflecting the blue sky the effect was wonderful to capture.

  1. Nice picture, and really nice colors; feels like going to have a swim there.
    I think I’ll have to travel to the States one day, at least to know these wonderful natural parks (not the first time I find myself thinking of this idea).
