My wife spotted an announcement of an event near us called The Victory Cup. The event features polo, hot air balloons, food and spirits. Neither of us had ever seen a polo match or hot air balloons so we got our tickets, booked an Air B&B and headed to the Hill Country. It was a spectacular weekend and a perfect end to our Thanksgiving Break.
Greetings readers. I have submitted four of my photos for this year’s Hill Country Alliance Photo Contest. I would really appreciate your support, so if you have a few minutes please click on the photos below and cast your vote for my images. Thanks!
Took a road trip across the Texas Hill Country above Uvalde, TX to shoot the rivers after the recent flooding rains we have experienced.
According to the Uvalde Leader News we have received 13.21 inches of rain during the first five months of 2015 (compared to the 8 inches we normally average by this time of year according to US Almanac Data). No doubt the majority of this accumulation has come down over the course of the past few weeks. Not just Uvalde, but the entire Texas Hill Country has been hit by one unrelenting storm after another.
Once the day gave way to some clear skies, I grabbed the camera and took to the Hill Country routes to see first hand what it was looking like and to share with you. I hope you enjoy the images and make sure to check out the video at the bottom of this post which has more imagery from my trip.
