The Grotto

Newer Older

If you want to see how I made this (and how you can too!), visit my HDR Tutorial. I hope it gives you some new tricks!

This is Hamilton Pool, one of the best kept secrets in Austin. The preserve’s pool and grotto were formed when the dome of an underground river collapsed thousands of years ago. There is a ring of 45-foot waterfalls all around the rim. Flow was light this day, but you can still see a few streams of water coming down.

    Nice pic, but the geotagging is messed up. Unless there's a secret place I don't know about in the Vickery Meadows area. (And, if so, how do I get there?)
