Here’s a shot I took a few weeks ago during my scouting trip for the upcoming Texas Landscape Safari workshop which begins on April 24th (forgive my blatant self-promotion) in Lampasas. The Pedernales River is one of my favorite spots in the Hill Country and it’s hard not to come back with some nice shots, even when there’s no clouds to add some drama to the sky.

Shot taken with a Canon EOS 5D Mark II set on aperture priority (Av) using an EF 24-104mm f/4L IS USM lens tripod-mounted. The exposure was taken at 40mm, f/16 for 0.6 seconds at ISO 100 using a Singh-Ray Vari-ND-Duo neutral density filter. All post capture processing was done in Adobe’s Lightroom 3 Beta 2.

I can see why you like that area so much! Beautiful!
When you have the right tools to slow shutter speeds in the middle (got to get me one of those Singh-Ray filters), I can see how it is easy to come back with such winners like this. Clouds or no clouds. Singh-Ray should put you on their payroll. 🙂
