This is an infrared photograph of the Blanco River before the flood. I call it “Island in the River.” I have not checked if this island is still there. Intended to go to the river today, but it’s wet… very wet… Wimberley, TX

Presidio La Bahia

Presidio La Bahia

This is an infrared photograph of Presidio La Bahia in Goliad, Texas.  According to Wikipedia:  The Presidio Nuestra Señora de Loreto de la Bahía, known more commonly as Presidio La Bahia, or simply La Bahia is a fort constructed by the Spanish Army that became the nucleus of the modern-day city of Goliad, Texas.  Goliad also is home to the wonderful Goliad State Park with its wonderful mission restored by the CCC in the 1930s.   There is a small fee to enter, but the interior is well worth a visit.

Oaks beside a pond

Oaks beside a pond

The graceful lines of these oak trees attracted me to try to photograph them with the pond in the foreground. This is the rookery area near Goose Island State Park, now inside a gated community development. This photo was taken with my infrared camera. An infrared photograph taken in sunlight turns most green leaves white, which in this case emphasizes the lines of the tree trunks and branches in a way a normal photograph would not.

Mission of Nuestra Señora del Espíritu Santo de Zuñiga,

This is an infraared photo of Mission of Nuestra Señora del Espíritu Santo de Zuñiga, in Goliad State Park in Goliad, TX.   This mission was reconstructed by the Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) in the 1930s. (Texans should know that most of the Texas state parks are works of the CCC to this day…)  This is an infrared photograph, converted to B&W and then manipulated with various tools…
