Way out west in the Texas panhandle is a beautiful little spot just north of Silverton called Tule Canyon. Most of Tule Canyon is on private land but the section that cuts across Highway 207 is on state land and offers some wonderful roadside scenery to photograph.
Hit this stretch of road doing 70 mph or more and you’ll leave your stomach on the ceiling of your car in a hurry. But if you slow down to enjoy the view you be amazed at how much beauty the Lord was able to put in one square mile of land. Each direction you turn presents a unique scene to capture and I must have taken over fifty different shots in less than one mile of this road which dips down and back up over 200 feet in less than a mile.
Yes, everything is bigger in Texas, but sometimes the smallest parts are the best.
For those readers not familiar with our Texas skies, that deep blue you see is the honest-to-goodness “real thing”. It’s so dry here in the panhandle, once the clouds have gathered all the moisture all that’s left is a deep, cobalt blue sky.
