White Rock Lake

This lake has many beautiful spots to take pics at.  The trail that goes around the lake has numerous spots.  You can’t go wrong with the lake as a background.  Beware of some areas that are private property as this can get you into thorny situations.  It is generally a good idea to stay near parking locations and staying in the trail.  Also, this lake is a few miles long.  Keep in mind how long you would like to walk.

One of the most iconic Dallas sites in the DFW area.  The garden is set in front of the White Rock Lake and adds to its charm.  The park is decorated with huge plots of flowers throughout the park and flower sculptures that can add interesting elements to your pictures.  Beware parking is extra and tickets must be bought to enter the park.  It also closes early 5pm.

SMU Campus

SMU Campus

A beautiful campus to with lots of classical style buildings.  The Bishop Blvd. loop road is a great spot since it has low hanging canopy of trees.  This might a great place for when it is extremely sunny.  Head over to the Meadows Museum on your way since this spot has a lot of art installations.
