Road Trippin through Texas | Part III

We were greeted on Saturday morning by a golden sunrise and mr. buns at 6:00am.

Then we went back to bed and re-awoke at a much weekend appropriate time, 8am. For breakfast we headed to one of the town’s popular cafes. I’ll skip the dets of our meal and head right into stop number four.

Pedernales Falls. The park is home to many woodland creatures, birds and the ever unpopular, snakes. We did a short hike, explored the waterfall and cooled down at a popular bathing spot.

The river is prone to flash flooding and coils its way through the park for 6 miles. Some images below show limestone gorges filled with deep pools. At the falls’ overlook, persons can marvel the gorgeous view then venture down to explore its vast canyon of limestone and pools. As tempting as this area looked for bathing, we were not permitted to swim, wade or tube. But there were other designated spots for bathing that were just as lovely and refreshing.

There are also numerous hiking trails to fit your adventurer side. It can be as short as 30 minutes or long as 4 hours. Just remember to wear a cap, bug spray/sunscreen and carry your water!

Last Saturday I was awake before 6am. Who gets up that early on the weekend? Photographers. And maybe taxi drivers, vendors, gas station attendants… Anywho, I had a portfolio shoot at 7am and the location was roughly 30 minutes from my house.

Thankfully, we also had good weather. It seems like the seasons have finally decided to work out some kind of compromise because we’ve been in the rainy season for a couple days now and the sun has been dominating the skies ever since the end of May. There have been a couple showers here and there but they were never heavy or long.

My model was a sweet young lady with great ambition, who was little bit shy at first but she eventually loosened up a bit as we took more photos. When I was editing, I got a little bit carried away with the B&W processing 😛 I added one coloured photo. After all, we live in an age with flat screen tvs and 3D right?

Here are some of my favourites from the session.
