Views like this can be seen just a few steps from the parking area at Franklin Mountains State Park. This month I have added 9 new photos to the library including the photo seen above. It's difficult to appreciate the colors and details of this photo in this format. The original file is a whopping 150 megapixels in size - capable of being printed over 10 feet in length at high resolution.
