Spring Waterfalls

Spring rains returned to Texas in February and March.  The trees were leafing out, flowers were popping up and the local waterfalls had good flow.

After a rainy Friday, I went out to Airfield Falls early on Saturday to see what the flow was like and caught these images.  This is the biggest waterfall in Fort Worth with something like a 10-12 ft total drop.  It is fed by a small stream that drains the surrounding hillside and needs rain to get a good flow going.  We had enough rain to make it a good flow over the falls.  

The stream was running a little muddy adding some character to the water.  I worked images with both a wider view of the falls and then a closer view of some of the better stretches of falling water.
