My best so far of this Texas spring crop of bluebonnets.

Texas Spring Wildflowers

Each year I walk our own land and our state parks looking for the one image that captures best the sights, smells, touch of our Texas Hill Country Spring. This image is the one so far but we have m...

My new photography blog.  Went back and forth on whether to start this up again.  In the end, I think we all as photographers have something useful to say (and show). 

I am a Photographer

Just what the world needs, another photography blog.

When we make photographs just for ourselves we have this precious small set of images that I consider revelatory.  They reveal who you are as a Photographer.  This is one of mine, maybe the top one.  I heard the land's poetry this day.

This image is a reissue.  Lately I have been printing large and I am finding some of my HDR work does not stand up well to printing large.  For this image and many others I am using only one of my bracketed images and not doing HDR.  This one just went off to the printer and will hang soon.

a grey haunting sonnet

a grey haunting sonnet

just one, lone stank stained coffee mug,
grounds 'nd a taste of cold bottom brew,
plus the burn of crap whiskey
...winter is lonely

the wind makes a different sound in january,
shrill whippings through naked branches,
cooling a barren granite stone river bed
...a grey haunting sonnet

pebbles and shells strewn into a chilly message,
"hope is eternal for those who believe",
and for those who do not?
...there is no...

End and Begin

The end of the Bluebonnets and the beginning of the Fire-wheels on our land outside Austin and at the edge of the Texas Hill Country.

The last shot of the day...

The Blue Hour Descends on the Pedernales

The last shot of the day. With the sun below the horizon, frogs croaking, and the bugs biting it was time to pack all my hiking gear and photographic equipment and hike out of the area. One last long exposure though on the falls that empty this swimming hole at Pedernales Falls State Park.

I will take a couple of these lens in a m4/3rds mount.

A wish list for those wonderful folks at Panasonic, Olympus or some cool third party lens company.

photo: ©Alan Pogue. I wish the systems I want to shoot with came with all the lenses I want to shoot with. But they don't. And here's what I want from the genius lens designers I know are out there somewhere. I'm tired of...
