I just spent a frantic day shooting Fall color at Daingerfield State Park about 2 hours east of Dallas.  It is one of my favorite Texas state parks,  with a beautiful little lake nestled into some very pretty east Texas “Piney Woods” all surrounded by hills. (FYI – East Texas is not exactly known for hills, so you take it wherever you can get it).

And best of all, it has just enough maples and hardwoods that turn colors in the fall to give it an Autumn kick.

Mix in some lily pads, occasional backlight, and some still water, and you have some “good shootin'”, so to speak.  I like what I got so much that I am going to show a handful of these images for Autumn Week, leading into Thanksgiving.
