My wife and I at the top of enchanted rock at sunset.

It was well worth it when my wife and I hiked up at 5:30am to get a glimpse of this sunrise as we watched sitting on the Enchanted Rock in Texas! Who said Texas was just flat? =)


Early morning drive to Enchanted Rock reveals the rock in all it's 'pink' glory. Reminds me of a smaller 'Ayers Rock' (Uluru) in Australia.

This was shot from the top of Enchanted Rock in the Texas hill country.

iPhone 4S + Snapseed + PicFX + Filterstorm + Dynamic Light. I shot this picture near the summit of Enchanted Rock. I was drawn to the windblown shape of this tree, and the packs and walking stick hanging from it. It was a frustrating place to shoot because the view is so vast and there is no way to capture it all in one photo. Since I couldn't recreate the feeling of being there in one frame, I decided to add some drama back into the photo through color and texture.

FYI, Little Rock is the smaller of the two domes, in the background.

This is a mini-planet (polar panorama) made using the same images I used from my regular panorama from this location, just processed in a different way.


On Saturday February 21st the Enchanted Rock state natural area celebrated it's designation by the International Dark Sky Association as a Gold Tier Dark Sky Park with it's first Enchanted "Rock Star" Festival.


As part of the celebration there was a "moon-less" night hike to the top of the Rock during which I had a chance to take the 12 photos I used for this image. You can see the regular panorama at:
