ShutterByMe | Caddo Lake

122 photos
I absolutely fell in love with this lake and the bayous that are connected with it. When the fall colors appear there is nothing like it that I have ever seen.....just beautiful! I'm not the only one who has fallen in love with the lake, it also happens to be the favorite lake of famous lead singer Don Henley of the Eagles who happens to own two homes on the lake. Caddo Lake is a maze of bayous and sloughs, and is the only natural lake in Texas. Caddo Lake is home to one of the largest cypress forests in the world, and the moss-draped cypress groves and lush vegetation makes it appear something akin to a Louisiana swamp. Locals call it the invisible lake. In order to see this beautiful lake you actually have to get on a boat to see it. The lake is full of wildlife which includes many species of birds and of course watch out for the Alligators!

I have a mixture of photography and photography based digital art.

My images are based on the photographs that I have taken in and around our state and the road trips we have taken for vacations and holidays. Although I'm always thrilled to get that perfect shot with the perfect lighting out of my camera there are sometimes when I just can't leave a photo alone. When I start playing in Photoshop with them and adding different textures, painterly etc.....that is when my images become Digital Art. I love being behind my camera out in the field but I also love being behind my computer wrapped up into Photoshop just as much.

All of the photos in this gallery are available for purchase. To purchase a single photo just click on the buy button upper right above thumbnails while viewing photo, then select your choice of either print, framed prints, canvas, fotoflots, cards....etc...
