Green Roots
Photo By Lance Varnell

  • Title: Green Roots
  • State/Province/Region: Texas
  • Country: United States
  • Nearest Area: Pineywoods Region
  • Nearest Town: Beaumont
  • Brief Directions: From Beaumont take Highway 69 North to the town of Lumberton and follow the signs to the park.
  • Notes: Village Creek State Park lies in an area of East Texas known as the Big Thicket. This area is known for slow moving creeks and bayous, cypress and tupelo swamps as well as thickly forested lowland areas. The region is very diverse biologically and slowing down to take in all the intricacies of the landscape can be very rewarding. This photo of a beech tree and its roots along a blackwater slough was not something that jumped out at me and said "photograph this". I was hiking and stopped for a few minutes for some water and a snack and through the tangle of the forest this composition revealed itself.
  • Best Season: Autumn
  • Description: Village Creek State Park is located in the East Texas Pineywoods region of the state. The park is about 15 miles north of Beaumont in Hardin County. Village Creek runs through the park and is a popular destination for canoeing & kayaking. The park covers 942 acres and offers campsites with water and electricity as well as primitive walk in sites.
  • Gear: Pentax 67-75mm lens-bogen 3036 tripod

    Very nice set of "Arches" Stephen. Wasn't sure, but thought someone said one of the famous landmarks fell? Really enjoyed the "Double Windows" when there!

    That moose is a "spike" i.e. a very young juvenile, probably on his first year away from mom. His antler's will fill out further in the next few years.
