This is a swamp we have north of the city. I traveled a long way to take this photo, but there was just one problem; the swamp had hardly any water in it!
We are now in year 3 of our Texas drought. 
Still, I found the cypress tree 'knees' fascinating.
I put extra contrast with this photo to highlight the eerie feeling of swamps.
To me, I'm much more fascinated than afraid of them.
Of course, don't leave me out there at night without a flashlight!


  1. Fascinating shot David. I think the heightened contrast works well.

    Merry Christmas to you and yours!

  2. Hey! :)

    We just launched Houston bookoo - it's a massive online yard sale for Houston and surrounding areas.- Thousands of people buying and selling used stuff from each other, in a fun, family-friendly way! :)

    We're getting the word out to some local bloggers, and would like to send you a free bookoo t-shirt (no strings attached!). If you would like a free t-shirt, will you send me an email at with your address and shirt size? I'll get it out to you right away!

    Check out the website:



Thanks for stopping by! David/ :0)
