San Antonio Riverwalk

Everything is bigger in Texas. It’s one of the few states where you can drive for 72 hours and somehow still be in the same state. Okay, maybe that’s a slight exaggeration, but it is quite bigly. We’re from the Houston area but you have cities like Austin and San Antonio just a few hours away. The landscape in these places is a good change of pace from the southeast Texas scenery and we enjoy every opportunity to visit. Having family there is a plus, but it’s really a cool place with or without people you know. The city has a lot to offer and is known for the San Antonio Riverwalk…and the Alamo…remember that.

Up until a few months ago, I had only been to the main Riverwalk in downtown San Antonio. To be honest, I didn’t even know there were other Riverwalks in the San Antonio area. In our last visit, my wife surprised me and took me to Mission Espada and we walked the Mission Riverwalk. This trail is paved and has several Missions and pieces of art for you to admire along your walk/ride. One really cool piece near the Mission Esapada is the Arbol de la Vida. You should definitely check it out if you get a chance to visit.

My usual weapon of choice for all of these photos was the Fujifilm X-T3. I swapped between 2 lenses: Fujinon XF 18-55mm and the Fujinon 50-200mm. I edited all of the photos in Lightroom and my bride was kind enough to allow me to admire her along our walk. You can see these and more of my photos in high resolution at Pexels or Pixabay.

I also took some high-res texture photos of the mission that you can use for your creative projects. Download them all below for FREE!
