This beautiful General Motors Truck appeared in the square in Wimberley this winter. I don’t know anything about it. I searched google images and found nothing with a grill just like this one.

This is a Snowy Egret (black beak, black legs, yellow feet) who got in a fight with the bird flying away at this point. I had noticed his impressive topknot earlier, but didn’t know what was going on.
The picture below is earlier in the battle…
Angel’s Trumpet (Brugmansia). I processed this version to bring out more detail in the flower. For not quite so soft an effect I applied some treatments with Topaz Glow. This is my new go-to tool for bringing out the edges and details in flowers. This was photographed on a light box.
This beautiful old truck was parked outside Cypress Creek Cafe last week. I processed the photo to bring out the beauty of the truck and de-emphasize the background.
We have two Angel’s Trumpet, or Brugmansia, plants in our yard in Rockport and one of them is still blooming. This photograph was taken using my new light box. Usually I take flower pictures without picking them, but I’m now trying this method of lighting flowers.
Today I sold a collection of four Blanco-River-related prints at the New Braunfels Art League gallery. River Roots, Cypress Roots, Blanco River, and Blanco River Stumps. Above is River Roots.
River Roots was taken in 2007 and I recently reprocessed it in B&W. This version emphasizes the texture of the roots and the river and de-emphasizes the other trees, especially the ones on the opposite bank. The view is now significantly changed as the result of the flood in the spring of 2015 which took out many trees.
The other photographs can be seen in the Hill Country section of my website:
