Images of the swamps in Texas, around Caddo Lake. While most people can't imagine swamps as anything but dark and murky, they can be spectacular. Dressed in their fall colors, the bayou players form a virtual orchestra. Soloists, aspiring virtuosi, chorus, backup singers - you can find them all.

This flooded cypress tree standing in the middle of the swamps reminds me of a dancer, the flashy red skirt lifting while twirling on stage. While most people can't imagine swamps as anything but dark and murky, they can be spectacular. Come in the fall, when the colors turn orange and red, and you will be rewarded with splendid scenery.

There is always a light somewhere. Even in a densely forested area with very little daylight, a few rays can peak through and bring out the muted and subdued colors.​​​​​​​

Tupelo fall foliage, with its colors from orange and red to yellow and gold, makes for splendid scenery. Spotting one of these trees among the grey Spanish moss is like finding a pot of gold.​​​​​​​
