Sunset on the Pedernales...

I just returned this past weekend from a photo trip to the Texas hill country. This is my first final edit to come out of the lot. This was my personal favorite photo (not exactly my favorite location) because of the emotional reaction I experienced when making this photograph. This is the Pedernales River and Pedernales Falls in the background. I arrived about 1.5hrs before sunset and searched out my composition. I found this great area east of the waterfalls near a wash through limestone rocks. The river was flowing very fast in this area and a small rapids formed making it an excellent candidate for a long exposure. I had everything in place and just needed to wait on the sunset. Sadly, this was all the color the sunset would provide for us, but I was more than pleased with that! The final image I think was well worth it.

Thank you, Orv! It was a beautiful sight for sure. We waited for the sun to break through and once it did I started shooting light crazy trying to get that sunburst. I appreciate your feedback.
