Photo Op: Sheldon State Park

We found a great place to take photos last weekend. Sheldon Lake State Park is located in East Harris County. I actually remember my Mom taking me fishing here when I was a kid. There is so much great subject matter in this area.

The park is quite a bit bigger than I remember. The best time to go is in the early morning (or late evening) for that great lighting. In a couple of the photos I took, it was actually getting too late and the Sun was starting to cause some washout.

My main warning is to watch yourself on the piers during the humid morning hours or after a rain. They can be extremely slippery. I wiped out pretty bad and was really glad I had just handed my husband my camera. Whew!
