It’s a state park in north Louisiana close to the Texas/La border. I had always heard about how beautiful it was and always wanted to go.
A few days before my daughters prom, I read that the park is in danger of closing due to state budget cuts so I knew I needed to get out there soon. Since I knew that it was not that far away from the town my daughter is in, I pulled it up on Google and researched it. It was only 45 minutes away from where I was staying.
The day after prom, I checked out my hotel super early in the morning and drove out there.
Just the drive there was amazing. It was all country roads with a lot of hills. I live in south La where it is very flat so being around hills is kind of a big deal.
The park is just awesome. I wish that I would ve had more time to spend out there! There are many trails and places to explore. My time was limited so I was not able to do everything that I wanted. However, I did very much enjoy myself and experienced some “soul healing”.
It wasn’t as sunny that morning and I was a lot more relaxed. I felt much more comfortable shooting then the day before. I was able to practice doing macro’s on the many flowers out there. Macro’s aren’t what I am best at but I did a much better job with them that day so I know that my techniques are improving.
Here are some of my favorites…oh and the one with the lighthouse won me an award on Pixoto..
