Blue Hole II

I prefer this softened, more romantic version of the Blue Hole photograph.  It makes me feel more like what I felt when I was there than the sharp version.  Maybe it’s because the water and the leaves are constantly moving but the camera captures just one instance and freezes it as a sharp version of a world that is in fact in constant motion.

Blue Hole

Today was Arts Fest at Blue Hole in Wimberley.  We’ve had nice rain and being at Blue Hole was like being in a sea of green with the cypress canopy above reflecting into the waters of Cypress Creek.    I must say the photograph right out of my camera did not give me the same feeling as I had when standing on the bank of Cypress Creek, so I went to work on it.  This is the sharp version of my attempts to impart the feeling I had when standing there this evening.
