Jacob's Well

I went on a photo walk to Jacob's Well in Wimberley, Texas last weekend. I've lived in Austin almost 20 years now and this was my first trip there. Hard for me to believe that. It was almost golden hour when I shot this and I only was able to get this one shot before a large group showed up making it precarious to try to take photos without getting knocked off this little walkway. Plus it didn't help matters when they started throwing rocks into the water ruining the flat mirrorlike surface. Wish I had a little more time to dial in my polarizer to get rid of some of the reflection that's preventing you from seeing a lot of the hole that is 'Jacob's Well'. Scuba divers regularly dive here exploring the underwater passages. I scuba dive, but I don't think I'd have the nerve to try and find my way around down there.
