Texas Landscape Safari – Pedernales Falls

Here’s another shot taken at Pedernales Falls State Park on a warm, muggy summer evening. The summer long drought had lowered the river’s level enough to expose the wonderful color of the limestone boulders cut by the water thousands and thousands of years ago. Each time I visit this unique spot, I find another feature of these beautiful falls just waiting to be photographed. That’s the truly wonderful thing about shooting waterfalls. They are constantly changing with the flow of the water.

Pedernales Falls State Park is the fourth stop on the Texas Landscape Safari beginning October 18th and running through October 21st. Given the weather forecast for next week and the rain we’ve had lately I’m certain we’ll all get some nice shots at the falls.

  1. I’m hoping you all have a great week and the falls are in perfect form. Really wishing I could be along for this. If possible keep us up to date during the week and have fun.

  2. I’m delighted to report that the recent rains mean there is enough water to make Pedernales Falls interesting but not enough (at least last weekend) to hide the great rock formations. I’m keeping my fingers crossed for great skies and not too much more rain for the folks attending the Safari next week (when I’ll be out of town on business 😦 ).

  3. I have an appointment with the roof of the Chase Tower in Houston and the rain is not helping. I doubt this much rock will be exposed when you visit. Limestone is a beautiful sight.
