Landscape Photography – Curves

Here is another image taken last month at the Pedernales Falls State Park near Johnson City, Texas. I’m heading back to the Texas Hill Country later this week for a few days of landscape and nature photography. It’s going to be hot with the daily highs hovering around 102F, so I’ll probably stick to shooting during the “golden hours” during sunrise and sunset.

  1. In this photo, you really get the sense of how the water eats away at the rock. The water forcing the rock to conform to its shape. I like the simplicity of the colors and the texture of both rock and water. Very nice!

  2. Love the curves in this image, Jeff. But for me it’s the visual tension between the silky water and the textured rock on the left that grabs my eye. Great job!

    • Thanks Terry!

      We broke a 100 year record for the hottest June and we’re right on track for July. It’s funny but I thought only cold temperatures affected camera battery life, but shooting in 90F+ seems to suck the life out of my Canon batteries also. Maye it’s the 110% relative humidity. 🙂


  3. How odd…I need to make my way to Johnson City sometime in early August.

    Lots of curves repeated in this photo…very pleasing to the eye.
