[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
No rain in central Texas for months meant the end of the summer for many on Lake Travis. I took another trip up this weekend and took a little tour and shot out of the back of a truck while others drove around. I love the light in this! We had some cloud cover moving in, with bits of sun here and there!
Hope you have a great day!

Hi Linda

Interesting to see the 3 mini houseboats stranded in the sand. Reminds me of the Aral Sea in Central Asia. Well composed, using the rule of thirds, with excellent sharpness. Tfs!

Hello Linda,

Again the lack of water is obvious this summer, I think that next week there is a change.
Otherwise very nice light and shadow, nice depth of field.
Good day.

Hi Linda,

We have the opposite complaint but your situation is a lot worse I think. A very nice shot clearly showing signs of your drought I hope that water is on it's way but not too much at a time or you will get floods. tfs.

Hi Linda,
Good illustration of the extreme change of weather. Drought for ones, intense rains for others!
I agree with you, the light is special here. It give relief at the desolate place!
Have a nice day! Annie

Dry and hot!!! usual suspects in Texas Linda:):):)
Well I like here how nice is composed - lot of harmony!
About light - yes is very interesting and look like natural vignetting.
