Thank You . . .

. . . to Christina Lawrie for her recent recommendation about this image and about my work on Google+.  Although I enjoy photographing many subjects, I especially enjoy the beauty that can be found in the Texas Hill Country.  I discovered this waterfall through another photographer and made this shot at evening time.  This is, of course, before the worst of the drought and the creek had quite a bit of water running.

I must share a further story about this particular image. Shortly after making it, I ended up in the hospital with pneumonia.  That resulted from an uncommon respiratory infection that the doctor told me came from water's mist.  The only place I had been that had splashing water was this waterfall.  While I am not convinced the falls caused the illness, my family is.  They refer to this as the shot that gave me pneumonia!

This creek is called "Curry Creek" and is a branch of the Guadalupe River.  It is found off an old ranch road between the Texas towns of Boerne and Sisterdale.  Definitely an out-of-the-way location.  I hope you enjoy this glimpse of nature's beauty, Texas-style.
