We capture a series of  waterfall images at Hamilton Pool located outside of Austin. This natural pool was created by an underground river dome that collasped and after thousand of years of  erosion this swimming hole for formed. The erosion created this cave with stalactite growing from the celling, a waterfall flowing over the limestone bolders along the waters edge with moss and the highlight the natural emerald green swimming hole along with a sandy beach. The preserve includes about 232 acres of natural habitat and is home to the golden cheek warble. This place draws a lot of people want to enjoy this place on a hot summer days but if you want to come be sure and call ahead and make reservation. Over the years the place has been loved to death and you now need a reservation just to get in also it is also good to make sure it is open for swimming because it is a natural swimming hole no chemicals are added to the water so at times it get shut down due to high bateria counts. This nature preserve is part of the Balcones Canyonlands Preserve and is a protected environment.
