K5 IIs Photo: Caddo Lake, Texas Cypress Trees & Spanish Moss

This was the first weekend I have been able to get out and shoot with the K5 IIs. I am quite pleased with the results. Here is the first of several.

This was taken on a small two lane road near Caddo Lake in Uncertain, Texas. Yes, that's a real name. This area is in the Piney Woods of East Texas on the border of Texas and Louisiana. In fact, most of the lake is in Louisiana.

It is haunting in its beauty and the quiet at twilight and night is amazing. Any sound, whether by night-bird or human seems to echo forever across the lake and through the bayous. Yes, the nearby town is actually named Uncertain, Texas. I have more photos but this is the only one I have actually worked on. Will post more when I get the chance.

Here's a link to information for the park and the town.

The ability to 'see' the shot is more important than the gear used to capture it.
