This old water trough on the Freeman Ranch caught my attention. There’s just something about it that I like. Thanks to Veronica for the tour.
I was back at Port Aransas this weekend and just in time to see some dramatic storms roll in. This one was shot early in the morning using my wide angle lens and holding the camera just above the water as a wave came in. I had to take the shot and immediately yank the camera up to avoid getting it doused with sea water. This worked for a while but after a few close calls, a soaked neck strap, and a fairly good splash across the back of the camera I got the heck out.

Although the past only exists in our minds, it often seems just as real as anything we’re experiencing in the present. This is another shot from the jetty in Port Aransas. I panned along the jetty, following each wave as moved and crashed along the rocks. The blurring is a result of the moving camera and slow shutter speed.

This is an accidental exposure made when I tripped the shutter while carrying my camera on a tripod. I was using my remote switch and inadvertently did this a number of times. I thought I had deleted them all so I was a bit surprised when I found this image still intact. I’m pretty sure that’s a tree trunk in there but I’m not sure what the rest of it is. Leaves maybe? I may have to think twice about deleting those accidental firings in the future.
As far as processing goes, the only thing I did was increase the contrast and saturation a bit.
