Big Bend National Park
I was fortunate to be able to take a photography trip this past month to on of the least know national parks in the country, Big Bend National Park. Most people I talk to have not been and frequently have not even heard of the park. It is located in southern Texas on the border with Mexico. The landscape is quite different from most of eastern and northern Texas with its mountainous terrain.
Chris, a Photographer friend, and I had been talking about taking a photo trip and Big Bend is one of the locations that is within a one day drive from Lafayette, LA (our home base). We made the trip in a about 13 hours and spent three (3) full days exploring and photographing the park. I will be posting few images from this trip by shooting day with a description of the locations of each shot.
