  1. Enchanted Rock, TX

    Granite megalith in the heart of Texas Hill Country, about 100 miles NW of San Antonio. This intrusion into the surrounding rock matrix was already 1,000,000,000 years old when critters and plants first started migrating out on the oceans and onto the land. This "rock" was considered sacred by the Comanche indians. You can see in the top left along the ridge, people today still make a pilgrimage to its top.

    The two trees were only about 10 feet apart, but because of the vagarities of nature, one appears to have survived the severe drought in central Texas, while the other did not.

    Shooting info:

    D2X, Tokina 12-24 @ 19mm, 1/40 @ f11, ISO 100, ,Circ. Pol., Noise Ninja, Focal Blade and a little levels tweaking

  2. Nice shot, Gonzo. It looks like a number of trees off to the right have also succumbed to the drought. A very topical post as I see on today's news that there's been a number of wildfires in Texas and Oklahoma due to these drought conditions.
