A Sunset on a Texas Farm

An all-Texas episode of Stuck In Customs today! 🙂

We have our big PhotoWalk this evening here in Austin. It’s going to tonight (Thursday, Aug 6th) at 7:30 PM. Be at the Driskill on 6th and Brazos. We’ll meet inside the Driskill in the Victorian Room. All are welcome, whether you are a beginner, amateur, or pro. It’s simply a very laid back event where we will walk to a location, meandering this way and that as a group, taking photos, sharing techniques, and the like. Afterward, we share the photos online, exchange comments, contacts, etc etc.

Also, if you tune into ABC news in Austin on Thursday for their midday news broadcast, you might just see me! I have a short interview on there. I’ll also endeavor to get a YouTube of it to share afterward in case you miss it (like I will).

To share your photos from the PhotoWalk, you can post links in the comments here, or you can put them up in a few places. Share them on Facebook here, or share them on Flickr here!

Daily Photo – A Sunset on a Texas Farm

As for this photo, it was shot about two hours outside of Austin in a little town called Brady. You’d like it. They have a Sonic there. This was a 5-exposure HDR shot at f/16. This kept everything in focus and kept the shutter open long enough to let the clouds drag across the sensor. In these conditions, you don’t have a lot of time to fool around because the sun is bookin’ it towards the horizon. If you are new to the site, then you might enjoy reading more about how photos like this are made in the HDR Tutorial.

  • Wow, beautiful photo, Trey. Enjoy your walk tonight and all those who participate!!!! Wish we could be there! But we are being blessed with several days of rain that started early this morning. Looks like our annual creamery picnic will be a “washout”. We still go bravely on 🙁 . Too bad you can’t come up here and have one of our world famous apple dumplings ;-). I get to work the booth tomorrow night, but will be inside at the senior center selling tickets to our burger luncheon. Sorry, putting in a free ad, lol. But we probably will also get T-storms with this rain, ugh. Anyway, good luck with the walk tonight, Trey. Hope you have lots turn up to go on it!!!! 😉

  • Great shot! Tougher than it looks. Does your book cover how to nail this kind of shot? I just posted one like this and it took a ton of post work… Have a great photo walk! Wish I could be there. Mel

    What a great shot! I so wish I could go to that PhotoWalk. If I still lived in Houston, I would be there in a heartbeat. But alas, I live in Maine, so it’s a tad too far. 😉 I hope you all have a fantastic time!

  • Have a wonderful photo walk this evening. This is just a lovely photograph. I am in Dallas, TX, and enjoy exploring some of the charming little towns you find two or three hours away. I do hope you will have time to capture your television interview in a YouTube video and post a link. I would love to see your interview and I am sure many of your other followers would, as well!

  • hehe thanks all 🙂

    Mel – Yes there is discussion in the book about how to do daytime HDRs with an example… also lots of tips and tricks around various example photos.

  • Brad Truxell

    Awesome shot! Love all of the colors. Have fun on the photo walk tonight! Wish I could join all of you.

    Beautiful….have a wonderful day!

  • very dreamlike, great sky and colors

  • the dynaic sky in this one makes it one of my favourites – you seem to be producing a lot of “my favourites” recently : )

  • Hans

    Is the human eye supposed to see these many colors? I percieve some of these images to be completely saturated with colors. Awesome pictures though 🙂

  • You have lots of material that makes the best use of lens flare. Congrats on the creative edge!
