Bald cypress tree in autumn
From a year and a day ago at McKinney Falls State Park in southeast Austin, here’s a bald cypress tree (Taxodium distichum) turning its customary autumnal orange-brown.
There have been times when I’ve gone to a place in nature and taken plenty of photographs, few or none of which made their way into this blog. It’s not that most of the pictures in those cases weren’t good enough (that can happen, too), but merely that I took so many other photographs at around the same time that there were too many to deal with properly here. The visit to McKinney Falls State Park on November 24, 2014, was one of those jaunts whose fruits, figurative as well as literal, barely appeared in these pages. In today’s post and several ahead I’m mining that previously untouched part of my archive to show you a few of the things you didn’t get to look at last fall.
