The results of rain
Some of you have heard that Texas got a lot of rain this past Friday. It’s true. In my northwest part of Austin we got probably 5 inches of the stuff, and at around 3:30 A.M. Saturday the sound of another downpour briefly woke me from sleep. By the time morning came I figured I’d better go out and see what all that water had done, so I spent some time over at a heavily flowing Bull Creek. In particular, I worked my way down to the base of the largest waterfall in one of its tributaries, which you see here.
If the scene looks familiar, it’s because I showed a view of this waterfall after a similarly heavy deluge 13 months ago. That time I gave you the cottony water that comes from a long exposure, but this time you have a take that’s more the way our eyes see things. That view was unimpeded, while this one has the overlay of a leaning tree. Different times, different approaches.
