Texas Hill Country - steve-coyle

Color Splashes

Fall has arrived in the Texas Hill Country. I made this shot on a hike around Selah - Bamberger Ranch Preserve last weekend. Many people think of Lost Maples State Park when they think of fall colors in the Hill Country, but the maples along this trail on the ranch were as colorful as any I've seen at Lost Maples. Only difference is the public can only access this property a few times a year and group sizes are limited. If you're lucky enough to have a chance to see the ranch in the fall, GO! Although this may look like I'm artistically tilting my camera, I can assure you this was shot on the side of a steep hill and this was taken from a level angle. Helps to understand why this area is called the Texas 'Hill Country'.
