254: A Photographer’s Journey through the Texas Counties

Lance Varnell

Available Now


The 254 landscape photos in this book, along with the accompanying facts about them, illustrate all of the counties of Texas. Each county includes a map of its location and iconic photography of that county’s notable landscape and natural setting. The photographer, Lance Varnell, has the heart of an environmentalist and had the eye of a photographer. The word "had" is used here because following the 15-year adventure of collecting these photographs, Lance contracted a rare disease that left him blind. His father, Ronn Varnell, led his son into a love of photography and was so impressed with the collection that he encouraged Lance to put together this book. 254 illustrates Lance’s love for nature and a rare talent to capture the varied landscape of Texas.
