This is Passport to Texas

It’s not unusual to see people snapping photos in state parks. The beautiful scenery makes it nearly impossible to take a bad photograph.

04 – It’s just waiting for the right time of the day to take the right shot; a lot of its just luck.

Chase Fountain is a professional photographer working for Texas Parks and Wildlife. Every month the agency highlights state park outdoor activity of the month.

07 –And for March it’s photography and nature viewing. Grab your kids, grab your camera – go to the closest state park –and take lots of photos.

Through April 30th, enter your state park pictures in the Texas State Parks photo contest. Anything goes.

21 – Just everyday activities that you experience at a park; if it’s your kid and they catch a fish for the very first time and their eyes are wide open and they’re very excited get that shot. Share that moment. If you’re taking a nice walk, and you get lucky enough to come up on some wildlife, take that picture. If it’s a beautiful sunset? Absolutely — take that picture. You don’t have to have expensive cameras; your phone is just fine. They take wonderful pictures these days.

Prizes will be awarded for first, second and third place.

Go to for complete details. We’ll have more on the contest tomorrow.
