Hamilton Pool Preserve, Texas

There is a possibility that I’ll be back in Austin sometime before the end of the year. I LOVED it the last time I was there so I’m really looking forward to going again. Obviously, I’ll be there to visit my friend, Sue who was the reason why I went to visit in the first place, but can you believe that it was my first time ever visiting Texas? In fact, neither Andrew or I have really spent time in the lone star state so he’ll be coming with me.

One of my favorite places in Texas was Hamilton Pools. I really wish we were able to spend more time there but if you’ve never been, it’s a pretty unusual park. Unusual in the fact that you had to get tickets to go and you’re only allowed to hang out for a certain amount of time. When you’re time is up, the lifeguard comes and basically makes sure everyone leaves.

So if you’re planning a visit, get your tickets online and go early. Make sure you can maximize your time at the pool because it is so cool.

This image was captured inside the cave. You can basically walk around the pool 360 degrees and it’s a really cool point of view from wherever you’re standing.

My camera settings for this image is F8 at 1/80th sec and ISO 320 with my Sony A7II and 70-200mm
