Hill Country Ranches: Urban Amenities in a Rural Setting

Hill Country Ranches: Urban Amenities in a Rural Setting

Initially shot on location on an actual ranch, this show caught the attention of millions of viewers. Its riveting plot twists set against idealized depictions of life on a classic American ranch captivated millions worldwide.

Despite the show’s focus on the conflicts among its major characters, people around the world appreciated the fleeting glimpses of ranch-style living. Typical ranch fixtures like cowboys and cattle auctions were featured every now and then, and added to the show’s mystique.

Dallas, is also home to some of the country’s biggest tracks of ranch lands. Mention “Dallas” or “Texas,” and images like cowboys, cattle, and ranches immediately come to mind. The picture of a traditional Texan cowboy on his horse remains etched in the minds of many, and is inextricable from everyone’s concept of life on a ranch.

A ranch is a vast landscape consisting of various structures geared toward raising grazing livestock such as cattle or sheep for meat or wool. It also includes arable or irrigated land that may be used for a limited amount of farming and for feeding the animals with hay and feed grains. It generally consists of several acres of land and can be of any size.

A hill country ranch, however, is not your ordinary Texas ranch. It may have the typical features and characteristics of a ranch, but it also features residential areas for private ranch owners. At the same time, it offers various amenities, services, and a commitment to assist conservation efforts by providing a sustainable balanced ecosystem that ensures abundant and healthy wildlife.

Living in Hill Country ranches can provide you with all the facilities of a ranch without all the hassles associated with running a ranch. You can keep your horses in a community stable run by ranch professionals who can look after them at all times. Some ranch communities also include well-equipped clubhouses where guests and residents can hold gatherings or enjoy various other activities.

People who live in Hill Country Texas ranches can also enjoy modern amenities while experiencing country living. Ranch owners have the option to join annual bird and wildlife census and predator control activities. Meanwhile, organized hunts and rotational grazing ensure efficient regulation of the wildlife population and help preserve the local ecosystem.

The "For Sale" Miniseries
"Dynamic Calm" is the ninth photo in a miniseries that I recently started. Over the next few weeks, I’ll be covering all of my photographs available as prints on my website. I’ll be uploading one every weekday (except Friday), as usual, but you’ll find a lot more information on the photographs themselves – I might sneak in a few tutorials, quick tips, etc. It’ll be great for new and old photographers alike – If you have any friends who might be interested, be sure to let them know! I’ll be updating everything on my blog as well as my other social networks, so if you would prefer to follow it there, just click on one of the links above. 🙂

About "Dynamic Calm"
"Dynamic Calm" was taken from the Warners Bay foreshore. Warners Bay is a suburb of the City of Lake Macquarie in New South Wales, Australia, and is located 15 kilometres from Newcastle’s central business district on the eastern side of Lake Macquarie. It was named after Jonathan Warner, who settled the area. The population of Warners Bay was 7,009 as at the 2006 census, with in excess of 615 businesses operating in the area.

Taking "Dynamic Calm"
Nikon D90 | Sigma 10-20mm
1 min 43 sec | f/13 | ISO100 | 11.5mm

Like Thursday’s upload, I took this shot after attempting a sunset at Dudley Beach (unfortunately the location didn’t quite work out). I saw that the clouds were starting to turn, so I quickly drove back to the Warners Bay Foreshore. Unfortunately most of the colour in the clouds had dissipated by the time I arrived, but nevertheless I hurriedly set up the tripod and composed this shot. Originally I went for a fairly standard shot (in terms of shutter speed), but I felt the slight ripples in the water were too distracting. So I grabbed the trusty ND filter, popped it on the end of my Sigma 10-20mm lens, and exposed for just over a minute and a half to get this shot.

Processing "Dynamic Calm"
Not much was wrong with this image. The left hand side was a little dark, so I used Adobe Camera Raw’s graduated effect filter sideways (horizontally?), to lighten up that portion of the photo. I cooled the image down slightly, but then decided to apply a warming filter in Photoshop (Photoshop’s warming filter produces a different effect compared to simply increasing the white balance temperature in Adobe Camera Raw). I had to clone out a few dust bunnies in the corners, and also one stray stick in the foreground which I was finding distracting. What are your thoughts on small cloning fixes like that? Leave a comment! 🙂

Enjoy!
