Austin, Texas – Cascading Creek (HDR)

Winter in Texas is not too bad.  We do have our few cold days, but most of the time the weather is pretty decent.  I have a bunch of pics from the day we visited to UT Campus during our winter season.  We stumbled upon this wonderful sight near the UT Football stadium.  There is this small beautiful cascading creek, a cool old bridge, and the football stadium is right above the greenery at the top of this photo.  A cool spot indeed!  I’d like to go back in the spring as well!  Maybe there will be some flowers near the water?  The Texas spring flowers are the best in the country…so only another few weeks to go until spring for us!   Rivers in motion with rocks are a great combo for HDR!   If you have a flowing river near you…go out and shoot it at f/22!  Your pics will look fantastic!!
