Nature Photography in the Texas Rainforest

Here’s another shot taken during the Texas Landscape Safari at our first shoot in the Colorado Bend State Park near Lampasas, Texas. The beauty of Gorman Falls is truly unmatched in all the Texas Hill Country. The geology of the area is fascinating and beautiful falls looks as if it belongs in Hawaii, rather than some remote corner of Texas. After the long hike and the steep climb down to the falls, the view is unexpected and wonderful!

By the way, the results I obtained processing this image in Adobe’s Lightroom 3 beta are nothing less than spectacular. The new image sharpening and noise reduction algorithms provide incredible control and wonderful results. And this is just the first beta!
