Big Cypress Bayou Photo Tour

The cypress swamps of Lake Caddo and the Big Cypress Bayou in Texas are places of wild, haunting beauty. Clad in Spanish moss, the trees take on expressive shapes. The bayou comes colorfully alive in autumn, with an explosion of reds, oranges, and yellows. On this photo tour, we'll use my small inflatable (Zodiac-type) boat to explore the hidden, intimate, and wild places of the bayou. The tour is limited to two people at a time, and it presents a unique opportunity to photograph the bayou and make photos that stand out from the rest.
