The Approach, Mercury TX

Approaching the Center of Texas on my friend's ranch.

The King, Mercury TX

The co-heir to the center of Texas ranch. Sometimes he fancies himself the King of Texas, and who can blame him with a treasure like that on his property?

Of course, there is a five pointed star at the exact center of Texas

I take landscape photos that seem to me revealing of something or other.
Often I try to make them look sort of like oil paintings or watercolors.
So far the only tool I have used besides a camera is iPhoto.
So far I have avoided any retouching or other spot effects.
I often turn "noise reduction" way up to deliberately remove small details.
So far they are all taken in North America.
They usually come out sort of hyperrealistic, but sometimes impressionistic.
Sometimes they come out lousy, but I won't post those.

Best viewed on Apple LCD hardware with factory settings.
