Photo Details

  • Title: Spring Whirlpool
  • State/Province/Region (required): Texas
  • Country (required): United States
  • Nearest Town: Zavalla
  • Description: The Boykin Springs Recreation Area is contained inside the Angelina National Forest in the Pineywoods Region of East Texas. There is a campground here and hiking trails as well. The terrain is gently rolling with mostly pine forest and some mixed hardwood trees. This really is a quiet and beautiful area. I discover more good subject matter to photograph each time I return to this area.
  • Brief Directions: From the town of Zavalla take Highway 63 East about 5 miles to the entrance road. Turn right.
  • Notes: This particular scene was not found on the designated trails. On the way in to the campground I noticed a bit of a ravine off the side of the road. On my way out late that afternoon I parked on the side of the road and bushwhacked down in there and found this spring. The debris in the pool was moving very slowly. A 13 second exposure rendered the moving foam and pine needles as a sort of vortex.
  • Best Season: Autumn
  • Gear: Nikon D300-18-70mm Nikon Zoom Lens
