Week 18 – Autumn Color in the Palo Pinto Hills

Taken about 30 minutes before sunset on the first evening of deer season west of Mineral Wells Texas.  You can see we are in enjoying our two weeks of autumn in north central Texas.

On this outing my camera was better equipped for wildlife than landscapes, but the wildlife were uncooperative.  This scene was several hundred yards away from me. I was using a Nikon D300 with Nikkor 300mm f/4.0.   As the sun dropped lower on the horizon it illuminated the stone amongst the cedar and elm trees.

Week 11

My results are better this week than last.  I spent some time in Palo Pinto County out in the brush and hill country. There were many potential subjects that caught my eye. Here are a few.  All shot with my Nikon D700 and Nikkor 28-70 f/2.8 lens hand-held.
