I made this picture back in 2009, almost exactly eight years ago, on the Texas coast. It’s an early HDR that I created just as I started getting serious into photography. By early HDR standards, it’s rather tame, without the crazy colors and textures that were common of that era. I took this with the 8MP Canon 20D DSLR with a kit lens.
This shrimp boat is from a working fishing community of Fulton, adjacent to Rockport, Texas. Hurricane Harvey made landfall in this part of the Texas coast and devastated the area a couple of days ago with category 4 winds and water.
My thoughts and best wishes goes out to the folks of the area as well as the people of Houston, who are experiencing epic floods. Luckily in Austin, we were spared the worst with 40 – 50 mile per hour wind gusts and only about 6.5 inches of rain.
