The View from On High

I have to thank a friend of mine for pointing me to this wonderful location in central Texas. Its a small overlook on FM 1431 just outside Kingsland, Texas that boasts one of the best views in the state. From this vantage point you can see south to Lake Lyndon B Johnson, north to Lake Buchanan and straight west towards Packsaddle Mountain for a great sunset shot. I stop here almost every time I travel to central Texas and I’ve never come away with a bad shot.
