- 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
