Smithville Gazebo

Last night we met our good friends Doug, Tricia, Valerie and Theresa in Smithville.  We had dinner at the Backdoor Cafe.  Get the tenderloin!  It was awesome!  Nothing like good food, drink and friends and not necessarily in that order!  While there I took a little time and "shot up the town" with my X-T1 and came away with this HDR of the gazebo located in the Railroad Park at the end of Main Street.  The gazebo as you can see is all decorated with lights, has a nice tree int he middle and the rest of the park has lots of these gingerbread man decorations.  At one point, Smithville was famous for the world's largest gingerbread man and "Smitty" there on the left is a permanent representation of that famous cookie!

Christmas Tree and Courthouse

It's time for another shot from downtown Georgetown...  This is the main Christmas tree located on the grounds of the old Williamson County Courthouse.  Georgetown is the county seat so it makes sense that is where the courthouse would be.  Inside they have another Christmas tree that extends all the way up through the courthouse's three floors!  I tried to go in there the night I took this shot, but they had just closed it up.  Maybe another time.

Grape Creek Vineyards

I went to the square in Georgetown a few days ago and took some snaps here and there.  While there I realized a new business sprung up called "Grape Creek Vineyards".  Well, it's probably not new, but it was the first time I saw it. And, I like the way they decorated for Christmas.  The square sure does look nice this time of year...

Austin Christmas Tree #2

Here is shot number 2 that I took with Van Sutherland last Tuesday evening.  This is the Zilker Tree in front of the Austin skyline at dusk.  The shot is an HDR shot as well.  It's the first HDR I've done in quite a while and I'm pleased with the results.  Maybe I need to start doing more of those again!

Oh, and please click on the shot to see a better version.  Blogger.com really screws with photos when uploaded here.  Hope you like the photo and thanks for stopping by!
