Enchanted Rock under the Big Dipper

Enchanted Rock State Park

I think I've photographed this tree that sits atop Enchanted Rock from every direction and at all times of day and night. I love the mystique the gnarled branches bring to the rugged landscape of the Texas Hill Country. In this image, if you look closely, you'll see the Big Dipper looming in the heavens. I used an astrotracker to track the stars and avoid trailing, then blended the night sky back into the foreground. During the long exposure for the sky, I also (luckily) captured a meteor.
