Caddo Lake State Park, 245 Park Rd 2, Karnack, TX 75661
F 5.6, 1/125 sec, ISO 640, panoramic image
This year, my wife and I explored the swamps of Caddo Lake in our kayak for the first time, looking to photograph the unique character of this swampy environment. This required miles of kayaking among the cypress trees and hanging Spanish moss. The tightly packed trees and debris made paddling the kayak into the proper position difficult. A big thanks to my wife for all the work she did maneuvering our tandem kayak into the proper position to capture this panoramic image. The fog was particularly dense this morning creating the atmosphere for a great swamp picture. Sitting in our kayak, waiting for the sun to come up, to catch the cypress trees and Spanish moss in the early morning sun was a unique and eerie feeling.
