Very beautiful photo! Like & fav.
Hello Art. The name of this fissure field evidently comes from a bedrock outcrop that was once on a plot of industrial land located to the southeast of this location near the intersection of Guadalupe and Delaware. This near surface bedrock condition is likely the geologic discontinuity that has been causing the differential subsidence which precipitates the earth fissure formation.
Thank you, Kostas.
Thank you, Tad. I don't convert many of mine to B&W, but every now and then I get one that I know right away should be B&W.
Thank you, Bernard. I had a polarizing filter on the lens but it probably didn't have much effect on this photo.
swfbtucs, I don't have a fb account because of their policies. One of their policies is that anything that anybody puts on fb belongs to fb. I do not want to give my photos to fb. Please remove my photo from your comment on WIW.
Hello Art, nice photo of the Spring. Back in the late 1970's & early 1980's I used to Picnic, and go swimming in Crystal Spring and at a lot of the other Springs in the area, (before Nature Conservancy / Fish & Wildlife Service took over the area). It's like swimming in a BIG bathtub full of Warm water & it's a lot deeper than it looks, it's about 30 feet deep. Also used to water-ski on Crystal Reservoir. Can't do any of that NOW, since the Feds took it over; kind of miss it, was a lot of fun. <Doc>
jrmaffeo a few years ago somebody told me that his brother built some of those stone walls, so some of them were probably built around the 1950's or 1960's.
