University Texas Tower HDR

It isn’t everyday you get a chance to shoot photos of the University Texas Tower HDR with the tower being all orange! So when you get the chance make sure you shoot it right! I shot this photo with a Canon 5D with a 24-105 F4 lens on a Benro Tripod using my Promote control to get 9 exposures. During these times you will find numerous photographers in the area. I am still waiting to get the photo of the Tower in Orange with the number 1 displayed on the tower using each particular window lit up to create the 1.

My typical work flow includes Lightroom, Photomatix to merge all 9 photos and then some Photoshop work.

Texas Top Hands Tour Bus

I shot this photo in 2011 in one of my numerous trips to the Broken Spoke in Austin Texas of the Texas Top Hands Tour bus. The Broken Spoke is arguably the greatest Honky – Tonk in central Texas. This bus is no longer on the property and the story that follows is as interesting as the character of the bus itself. Broken Spoke Bus Hauled Away the story is from the Austin Statesman. You can still get free texas Two-step dance lesson every Wednesday to Saturday from 8:30 to 9:30 pm, be sure to get there early as they fill up fast! Dont forget to try one of the coldest beers in town and the chicken fried steak before you 2-step the night away to some of the best country music in the world.

Camera Information:

Canon 7D – F-stop f/7.1 – exposure time 1/80 sec – ISO 400 – Focal Length 24mm

Fine art prints are available for purchase at Georgetown Antiques and Artisans located on the square in Georgetown Texas.

Deerfield Beach Pier

Sometimes we get to be in the right place and the right time to appreciate the beauty of nature and we were vacationing in Fort Lauderdale Florida and I had wanted to go to the Deerfield Beach Pier for sunrise. I had planned this shoot for almost a month. I got up early to grab a cup of coffee before heading down to the pier. I walked outside and it was pouring the rain! I quickly checked my phone to see how big of a storm had erupted overnight. I was delighted to see that it was just one single cloud raining on my parade and it was about to pass in less than an hour. It was still sprinkling as we made our way to the car and drove down to the pier. We got to the beach just as the glorious sun began to crack through the cloud cover.

Hardware: Canon 5D with 24-105 F4 lens, Promote Control on Benro Tripod.

Edited in Lightroom and Photomatix software

El Santuario De Chimayo

We visited Santa Fe New Mexico in April and decided to take a drive out to see the El Santuario De Chimayo located in Chimayo, New Mexico. Out in the middle of nowhere, off the beaten path is this amazing church with an abundance of culture and history. It is well worth the drive to be amazed with a National Historic landmark.  Be sure to check out all the history associated with this historic landmark El Santuario De Chimayo Website .    It was built in 1816 and is still an active part of the community.
