This weekend I attended a Sam Houston State University football game in Huntsville, Texas which happens to be my alma mater. It was homecoming weekend, and I did shoot many shots, but this one is by far my favorite of all. Sitting about 50 yards away, I noticed a player set his helmet on a fan. Shortly thereafter, a trainer set down the Gatorade bottles right next to the helmet. The colors blended well, I took aim, and I captured a great photo.

Today was a great day to get out and shoot some photography and see the beautiful murals around Houston. We have so many great artists and art pieces in our city that you could photograph for days and not get them all. Here is a small sample. Check them out!




Many do not know that the Texas State Capitol is larger than the U.S. White House. It should be because everything is bigger in Texas right? It is loaded with granite, marble, fine woodwork, oil paintings, brass, and much history. I took this series of photos at night for a different perspective and to avoid 105 degree summer heat. Enjoy! And God Bless Texas!


Colorado Bend is a state park located in the far northern part of the Texas Hill Country. It has numerous hiking trails and abundant wildlife for viewing. The big draw is Gorman Falls and the springs along Spicewood Trail. It truly is an amazing place. You could spend weeks, months, and possibly years exploring this grand place. Enjoy the photos!




The Blanco River is another Texas Hill Country favorite that provides excellent paddling, fishing, hiking, along with swimming in the Texas Hill Country. Here are a few photos from my recent trip. Enjoy!


One of the greatest recreational rivers in the great state of Texas is the Guadalupe River. It’s cool crystal clear waters provide life giving water to the Texas Hill Country and a great place for play and photography. Here are a few photos from my recent trip along a 23 mile stretch of the river for leisure. Enjoy!


Nestled deep in the Texas Hill Country is a spectacular oasis of Cypress trees, gardens, springs, and waterfalls. This place is Heaven on Earth and it soothes the soul with all the peace and tranquility it brings. This place is known as Krause Springs. Here are a few photos that capture it’s splendor! I hope you enjoy them and make a visit to Krause Springs someday.


The Ladybird Johnson Wildflower center north of Austin in the Texas Hill Country is a peaceful, beautiful, refuge, and a photographer’s dream land. Here are several photos I shot during my recent visit. I hope you are moved by them as much as I am. Thank you for visiting my blog.





Here we have a small collection of photos I shot in black in white monochrome of the legendary Luckenbach, Texas made famous by Waylon Jennings song which you can listen to here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xvZeYDBY4fw Enjoy the music, the photos, and do stop at the general store, or watch a concert in Luckenbach. You will not be disappointed.
















Nestled about 90 miles west of San Antonio is one of Texas’s best state parks. It was once a secret, but no longer as the crowds can get quite large on weekends and holidays. It has many species of wildlife, excellent trails, giant Cypress trees, and the famous crystal clear Frio River for a variety of water activities. Here are a few photos from my recent visit. Enjoy!
