The Home Place: A Fine Art Photograph

There are few days in January that bring opportunity to capture images of our little piece of Texas, this particular day revealed itself in rich colors and drama that makes us happy to live in the country. Our home place has been in the family since the early 1900’s and has been a part of many memories for several generations.

At daylight, it was awfully foggy. The heavy air had settled close to the earth, shrouding everything in a white cloak. As the morning wears on, the sun does its best to pierce the fog, allowing the scene to unfold. Patience is the key in landscape photography-a moment too soon and the scene hasn’t developed, a moment too late, the scene is passed. Time changes everything as the sun’s heat dissipates the thick blanket that once covered our part of the creek bottom.
