Serenity Along the Frio

Serenity Along the Frio - We capture this on one of our many trip to the Texas hill country this year to try and capture the fall colors as the bald bypress were starting to change to this rusty orange color. The Bald cypress were just beginning to turn to their fall colors on this trip to the Texas hill country in Garner and around. Garner State Park is a popular park and has some of the best fall colors as all the tree start to turn every fall. What I love are the surplus of bald cypress here with their feathery leaves and trunks which are reflecting back into the still waters of the Frio river. We do not have a big autumn season in texas but if you want fall colors you almost have to go into the Texas hill country to find it. We had driven in to the Garner State park early in the morning so we could capture images before the park got busy. Once the gates open I got my bathing suit on and waded out into the cold Frio river to capture this image. Oh did I say cold the temp was in the 40s and the water seem just as cold since the Frio is spring fed it is usually around 68 degrees. The light was soft, with no wind the water was still and we captured some excellent reflections of the bald cypress along the banks and old baldy down the Frio River in the Garner State Park. Fall is fleeting in the hill country a bad freeze or a wind storm and it can be over and done quickly. We have learn this from past experience and that is why we came to the texas hill country over four time this year! We had gone to lost maples and vanderpool on our route here to check out the fall scenery but very little was turning yet so we drove futher in to the hill country and we started to see the signs that the cypress were beginning to turn in the park.

The gallery wrap arrives at your doorstep ready to hang. After an order is submitted, the canvas usually arrives within 5-6 business days.
