The Spring 2011 Texas Landscape Safari Recap

Texas Landscape Safari

What a great group of photographers to teach, travel and shoot with!

Here are a few statistics to recap this year’s outing. 17 people each traveled over 300 miles in 3 days to photograph four different and unique state parks working on average 12 hours each day to capture literally thousands of great landscape shots.

Shot taken with a Canon Powershot G10 set on aperture priority (Av) using a circular polarizer. The exposure was taken at 32mm, f/4 for 1/250th of a second at ISO 80. All post capture processing was done in Adobe’s Lightroom 3.

Oh, we got scattered a few times but all ended up enjoying some great Texas weather during our three day safari with lots of sunshine, a few clouds but no rain in sight. Gorman creek was running over the falls near Bend, Tx. The mighty Colorado was low but still running as were both the Pedernales and Guadalupe rivers. The heights of Enchanted Rock haven’t gotten any easier to climb but the sunset and clear skies made the trek worth while. As always, the rocks and water in each park called to us like bees to honey. We climbed, explored, laughed and did it all again the next day. And as is usually the case, we made made new friends from as far away as Canada and California as well as those that live closer to home.

It was my honor and a great pleasure to host this year’s Texas Landscape Safari and to get to know each and every one of you a little better. You all have a gift for capturing light and turning it into art and I learned as much as I taught. Keep in touch and remember that TLS alumni are always welcome to join us again in the future for FREE, even those that brought their iPhones. 🙂

  1. Great trip, beautiful scenery and fun people can’t wait to do it again. Next time I’m going to carry more water and no Nikon, just bring my iPhone. Glad you made it safe from W. Texas.

    • Thanks Ralph but bring the Nikon too. We may have to come up with a “NO iPhones” tee-shirt for the TLS. 😉

      Josh will cry!

  2. Sound like it was fantastic Jeff really wish more of the PNW crew could have been there. Maybe this fall 🙂

    • We had a great time Ray. Josh was giving iPhone photography lessons and even got me started on it. Old dogs, new tricks.
