Spring at Pedernales Falls

I located this spring at Pedernales Falls State Park during a recent visit to this popular location. I’m always amazed at the things I find in the park. The water constantly reshapes the landscape and creates some amazing scenes.

Central Texas is home to a multitude of springs and waterfalls. Pedernales Falls State Park, located on the Pedernales River, offers a beautiful view as water rushes down the rocky landscape. The river flows over a bed of 300 million-year-old limestone, through ranches, farms, canyons, towns, and, 106 miles later, pours into the Colorado River. The river flows calmly until it hits the falls where a 50-foot drop creates a multitude of swirls and rushes among the limestone. I highly recommend visiting the falls when you visit Central Texas.

This image was taken with my Canon EOS 5D Mark IV using my Canon EF 16-35mm f/4 Lens set on 31 mm. The camera was set on Manual mode with the aperture set at f/14, shutter speed at 8 seconds and the ISO set at 100. I used a tripod for stability and my 6-stop Lee Filter along with a polarizer filter to extend the exposure and eliminate any reflections. This is a single photograph processed using Lightroom and completed in Photoshop using Nik Color Efex Pro.
