The Tropical skies of the Western Gulf of Mexico. One of the many dawn patrol mornings spent checking waves along Padre Island. This was one of those special sunrise mornings...only viewable by those who can get out of bed well before sunrise LOL!
Cold air, warm water with clean little South Texas waves. Yup this is me riding one of dozens of these little clean waves. I started surfing back in Surfside Texas in 1972 and never gave it up. My friend David grabbed my camera and snapped a few shots of me during a rest. If it wasn't for David....I probably wouldn't have any recent surf photos LOL!
October......sunrise.....an early morning "dawn patrol" surf session. It's 44 degrees with a stiff North wind...the first coastal blast of the year. The water temp is 76 degress, warm below and cold up top.....a late fall surf scene in South Texas.
I live in the western region of the Edwards Plateau, deep in the Texas Hill Country. I'm an avid outdoorsman spending a large portion of my time "out there" roaming the wide open spaces. Much of my photography is simply an extension of a very active outdoor lifestyle.
The challenges posed with closing the distance, pursuing wildlife photography, is an absolute hoot for me! The experience out there alone is everything to me. If I capture pixels along the way , it's icing on the cake.
