On the Banks of the Colorado River

Colorado River #2

Colorado River #2

5 Black and White Photos in this Gallery

Lake Travis feeds the Colorado River.  You may notice the river is low with the bottom is visible.  Lake Travis is at 32% capacity after several years of a Central Texas drought.  It rained later that day, but the storm barely did anything for the reservoir.  This location is downstream near Bastrop, Texas at the Lost Pines Hyatt.

      • You are so very welcome on both counts, Ron. Did everything work out for you? I really hope so, because I LOVE the classic editor.

        • The script works. It is still possible to get to the classic editor from WP Admin/Posts as well. I think they are trying to turn into something like tumblr.

        • Seeing I don’t do tumblr but do WP, I don’t appreciate what WP is doing. I’ve had so many issues, some of which have had me very very frustrated. What a way to run a business. NOT! The artists who use WP need to be respected, and IMO, we are not. I am SO glad you can get to the classic editor. So can I! (smile)

    The terms that come to mind describing the various compositions include delicate & exquisite, dramatic and emotionally sharp. Excellent compositions throughout the sequence. 🙂

  5. what an awesome series…I think I love trees without leaves more than I do with leaves…there is so much more character to their limbs and trunk when naked. the lack of color highlights these details.

    • Thank you Malin. Your post today about taking pictures when one feels like doing nothing was especially good, doctor.

  9. beautiful B&W…the southwest droughts are one of the many reasons I moved Don and I from Arizona to Florida in 2004…so sad…no rain and the aquifers are shrinking

    • 160 miles away in Houston there is no drought. Knock on wood because we almost had one last year.

      • when Don and I lived in Texas we were in Corpus Christi…interestingly enough living near a coast doesn’t necessarily mean more precipitation. Corpus was our winter home…we traveled east and north 3 seasons of the year. i have some hair raising memories of driving around and through Dallas and Houston in a 32 foot motorhome pulling a Saturn sedan 🙂

  10. Really like that Colorado #1, Ron. Thank you for sharing. Abstract, black and white Ron has got some good stuff.

    • Thank you Chris. It was supposed to flood that evening, but the area only got a light rain. So much for weather predictions.

  11. Excellent set.
