I miss large trees. Most of the trees in the Texas hill country are cedar or live oak which barely scrape their way out of the “brush” classification as far as I’m concerned. Some of the only trees that really do look tall and majestic in this area are the cypress that grow along river banks. This year, with the drought we’ve been having, many of them are badly stressed but the ones along the banks of the Pedernales River appeared to be doing fine.
Here’s a detail shot of the roots of one of these trees and the water swirling past. For the technically inclined, it’s a 5 shot HDR converted to monochrome and toned. My aim was to pull out the bark texture and contrast this with the smoothness of the water.
