Colors of nature

This is a photo of the Guadalupe River, and was taken outside of Gruene, TX (pronounced "green"), which is a nice little town between Austin and San Antonio.  I took this back in November, which for us often means we are still wearing shorts since our Fall season is usually pretty mild.  Fortunately we did get some color this year, which is great.  Fall is my favorite season, though as I just mentioned we don't get the typical Fall experience here.  I would love to get to New England and get some shots of Fall up there, with all the wonderful color and leaves falling!  That would be great.

This is a 6 exposure HDR taken at f/11, with exposures ranging from +2 to -3.  The HDR was created in Photomatix, and then I made some minor adjustments in PSE (Curves, Contrast, Unsharp Mask).
