Morning Shade

By Jim Grantham. Would be a beautiful tree in someone's front yard. Located in a hay field but perfect distance from fence for great portrait. The morning silhouette makes it a perfect candidate for B&W contest. This photo did win 1st place for September 2017 in the Nacogdoches Photographic Association Camera Club.

The Whole Family

By Patricia Isaacson. We have several herds of deer on our peninsula on Lake Fork (Emory, TX). We were so thrilled to see one of the moms with her twins, and dad all posing in front of the lake one morning! Rare to get a family separate from the herd!

Where Is the Key?

By Alan Roberts. "I grew up in Africa where many of my uncles and aunts had farms and I had very much, an outdoor life. When we visited their farms, my brother and I used to love taking our slingshots and going exploring, often playing on the old farm equipment. Seeing these old tractors at the Parrott Park/Old Mill Pond Museum [Lindale] brought back many wonderful memories for me of my boyhood in Africa."

Mr. & Mrs. Wood Duck

By Lisa Hilbers. Wood ducks are not always easily captured, so whenever I get the chance I always take it. East Texas offers a great variety of water fowl and being able to photograph it gives me extreme pleasure. The photograph was taken at Lake Holbrook, Wood County, TX.

Get Me a Chair

By Becky Rockwell. Being a slightly cooler and breezy evening, I decided to take the dog to go swimming at Lake O the Pines. I noticed this heron atop a cypress and decided to see how close it would let me come for a photograph. By the time I got closer, the sun was sinking to create this perfect scene.

Look What I Can Do!

By Mark Horner. I am a hospice chaplain so I travel quite a bit seeing patients. I always have my camera in the car. I pulled over to take some pictures of these cows in a field somewhere between Longview and Jefferson and zoomed in for some face close ups. I snapped a few and got back on the road. It was only after work that day when I looked at the pictures that I saw the tongue picture. It is so whimsical and captured a moment you don't see too often.

Red Brick June

By Jerry Permenter. "Downtown Nacogdoches after a June rainstorm... I walked these brick streets as a child, and now I've come to love how they reflect the years and the ways they can shape us. Even after a storm, my hometown shows more beauty than ever. It reminds me of the human spirit."

Foggy Texas Morning

By Walter Dugan. As I was driving home on this foggy morning I noticed about a dozen longhorns grazing at the fence line. I immediately pulled over and with my iPhone I was able to get this one shot of a Longhorn looking up at me.
