Krause Springs HDR

NIKON D300, Nikon 18-200 VR, HDR in Photomatix

We have been enjoying driving around Austin recently seeing the sights.  Its amazing how many great little spots there are here in our area!  Here is another cute spot called Krause Springs.  It is a local natural swimming and camping location.  I took this shot with my tripod and cable release – 5 exposures and post processed in Photomatix.  It was my first visit and we only spent about an hour there.  I need  to go back and explore.   I bet there are much more beautiful spots to see here!  I have a few cool HDR shots from here…so I will post em soon!

Here is a quick note fro the web:  Krause Springs is a well-known camping & swimming site located in the beautiful Hill Country of Texas. It is located in Spicewood, Texas approximately 30 miles west of Austin. The 115 acre property is listed on the National Registry of Historical Sites and has been privately owned by the Krause Family for over 50 years.

Krause Springs has many natural sites to explore. There are 32 springs on the property, and several feed the manmade pool and the natural pool which flows into Lake Travis. It’s a refreshing treat to swim in the Springs during the hot summers of Texas! If camping is in your plans, there is primitive tent camping as well as 24 RV sites with water and electricity available. Guests are also welcome to relax and to stroll through the Butterfly Gardens; take time to listen to the music of the wind chimes and the fountains during your visit!

This is definitely a place 2 explore!  Enjoy!
