Bend, Texas – Gorman Falls (Infrared)

Here is another shot from the amazingly beautiful Gorman Falls in Bend, TX.  I did not get to shoot much Infrared this day, but this shot was my favorite.  A closeup of one of the falls with a little tree action on the right.  Infrared shots need trees. so I made sure the photo contained the growth to give it that IR special touch!  When I look back at these pictures from this day, I am amazed that not many people in Austin know about this place or have even visited!  It is out in nowhere land, but it is worth the 2 hour drive!  I would assume, summer months may not be as pretty here as water levels are important.  So if you are thinking of a visit…do it soon!  I love the one part of the falls in the middle of the photo that looks like a old man’s profile!  So cool!  With the IR it could be the Winter Warlock!
