Austin Skyline Panorama – We captured this aerial Austin skyline panorama of the cityscape looking straight down Congress Ave using our drone to photography over the city. This wonderful Austin skyline was capture looking up congress avenue all the way to the Texas Capital. In this Austin skyline you can see many of the city high-rise buildings including the Frost, Austonian, W Hotel, Austin 360 CondosOne Congress Plaza, Radisson Hotel, Marriott, Four Season Hotel, along with the Ashton Condos, and One Congress and a bit of Lady Bird Lake.

Austin Congress Bat Watch – Austin Bat are a tourist attraction that has been going on for many year now. Since the late 1970 when I use to watch the bats from my apartment come out at night from the downtown area it was an amazing site to see. Today it draw tourist and locals alike from all over to watch the bats come out at night. Sometimes it a no show as the the bat leisurely come out through out the evening and some night it a spectacular show of thousand of bats coming out from under the Congress Ave bridge in Austin Texas all at once. It was almost a no show for the evening but we like the sky with this orange glow from the sun set with the spectators waiting for the show to begin right as the sun was going down under the bridge. The bat did come out just as we were heading back to the car but we managed to get a few shots before they were gone. People travel to Austin to see the bats but keep in mind they are only here in large numbers from early spring time to fall after the first cold snap usually late October or early November is when they start their migration for the winter.
Golden Glow Over Bluebonnets – This was taken on the colorado river as the sunrise cast this golden glow over bluebonnets with these golden clouds cast their warm colors over this amazing field of wildflowers. Springtime in the Texas hill country is my favorite time because of all the wonderful wildflowers everywhere, especially when you come across a big field of bluebonnets like this it can be a magical landscape. These blueboonets were taken along the Colorado river in the Hill Country at sunrise as the sky and cloud had this golden glow. The Texas bluebonnets are a variety of blue wildflowers that grow in the State of Texas every spring which are of the genus Lupinus. Originally in 1901 the state declare only one blue bonnet the state flower however, in 1971 the Texas legislature declare that any flower found to be similar to Lupinus be declared the state flower. The name bluebonnet was from the look of the top of white part of the flower that was similar to the bonnet that woman wore on their heads in the pioneering days. The popularity of the blue bonnet grew after Lady Bird Johnson had push the Highway Beautification Act where she encorage everyone to plant native wildflowers along highways in the state. Today you can find wildflowers along many roads in Texas and the Texas Hill County has been known as one of the better places to find them. Bluebonnets love soil that drain wells and you will find them easily growing along the slopping areas along the roads. Of course some years are better than others but you don’t have to drive too far into the hill country to find them along the roads. It is almost that time for the bluebonnets to bloom anywhere between the middle of March to the middle of April depending on where and if we got the right amount of rain and sun here in central Texas. We also have other wildflowe that show up near the same time like Indian Paintbrush it changes year to year it is alway fun to see what will show up every spring.
We captured this Heavenly Texas coastal sunrise as it was coming up from under the Caldwell fishing pier at Port Aransas sea shore as we walked along the beach early morning. You never know what the surf will bring in and today we found some red sea weed on to the beach with the tide from the night before. This heavenly texas coastal sunrise landscape today with the nice waves and wonderful colorful sky is a great way to view the beach. This is a favorite vacation spot on the texas beach where many come tourist and texans come to enjoy what it has to offer. This laid back community is always fun with it many fishing, swimming, bird watching, opportunities along with many other things to do. Port Aransas is a city on Mustang Island along the Texas coast. The Gulf of Mexico has many beaches and fish-filled waterways that tourist have been visiting this area for many years. There are many things to do here like the Turnbull birding center where you can see all kinds of birds along with a alligators or two along the boardwalk. Also the Roberts Point Park offers an observation tower for bay views. You can also catch a boat out to the secluded San José Island while there. The island has a very laid back atmosphere with some great restaurants and music venues.
Bluebonnets Along Texas Dirt Road
Captured these bluebonnets along this cedar fence and dirt road in the backroads of the Texas hill country. We had to go through two low water crossing with water up to the door to get here. This is just an example of the rural landscape in the hill country and how lovely it looks especially around bluebonnet season. To catch that Texas landscapes you almost alway have to go down the back roads.
Yucca Among the Bluebonnets
Captured this photo of a field of bluebonnets in front of a group of blomming yuccas in the Texas Hill Country on a nice afternoon with blue skys. It has been extremely overcast for ever it seems, so it nice to finally get out and get some photo and this one with the cactus and bluebonnets says Texas more than anything else. This bluebonnet landscape was a great find as this was a great year for wildflowers in central texas.
Wildflowers in Springtime
This great field of wildflowers with bluebonnets, and little yellow perky sue in this colorful field of flowers make for a nice contrast along the river in the Texas hill country. I like the little pop of red from the indian paintbrush in the middle of the bluebonnet field on this lovely day with blue sky and white puffy clouds along the tree line of the river. If you want to add a bit of spring this would make a nice wildflower landscape from the Texas Hill Country.
Wildflowers in the Hill Country
Another capture of this wonderful field of bluebonnets and wildflowers in the Texas Hill country. A wonderful landscape of blue as it seems to go on forever with these great blue skies and white puffy clouds.
Golden Bluebonnet Sunrise
Captured this at sunrise as the sun came up it cast this golden glow over the clouds and lake with a little light on the bluebonnets. We thought it made a nice texas landscape image of this great field of blueblonnet at the lake in the texas hill country. Springtime in Texas is my favorite time because of the wildflowers we can all thank Lady Bird for help in making spring special every year.
Bluebonnet Field at Sunset
It was a lucky capture of this bluebonnet field in the Texas Hill Country as the sunset showed some great color on this evening. This year the field of bluebonnets were not as plentyful but we managed to find a few decent fields and this one was pretty good. There is nothing quite like a landscape of wildflowers particulary blue bonnets at sunset in this rural area of the hill country.
Texas Longhorns and Bluebonnets
We capture this image with this family of Texas Longhorn and her calf plus friend who stopped to pose for this picture in the bluebonnets. The mother is on the right and when we came the first time she took her calf as far away as possible from us. The second visit I guess did it. We loved all the different version of horns and this calf with his little horns were just too adorable in this field of bluebonnets.
Stunning Bluebonnet Sunset
We captured this gorgeous sunset landscape with the bluebonnets one evening while at a county park along the Colorado river in Texas. The colors of the sky that came out with the sunset were beautiful with the oranges, pinks and reds. Couldn’t ask for a better sunset over the Texas wildflowers along the waters edge.
Old Wagon and Wildflowers
Bluebonnets, indian paintbrush wildflowers landscape long the road in the Texas Hill Country. We found this abundant field of flowers with this old wagon along the road in the hill country and stopped to capture it because we love the colorful mix of bluebonnets and indian paintbrushs.

Bluebonnet Road at Sunset
Texas Bluebonnet growing along side of a dirt road at Muleshoe park with this colorful sunset sky along the Colorado river with salt grass growing as it only boundaries. It was just endless wildflowers growing up to the salt grass then it would continue on the other side. This was the larges field of bluebonnets I had ever seen but it only lasted for two short years as soon as the lake came back up the bluebonnet were no more. We needed the water but it something we will never see again unless we have another drought and the seeds are still there.
Bluebonnets Sunset Landscape Pano
This is a panorama bluebonnet landscape we took of a wonderful field of bluebonnet at Muleshoe at sunset along the Colorado river outside of Austin TX. You can see the nice sky with a big orange and yellow sun casting it glow over the landscape with nothing but endless blue bonnets as far as the eye can see. The lake has been down for years but the following year the lake levels increase back to normal so the bluebonnets area in these photos are now under water. These increadible Texas fields of blue bonnet were short lived but they were a site to see when they were here at least for a few years. We were extremely lucky to have been there to capture these fields of bluebonnet or blue bells as many call them.

Austin is the fastest growing city in the US and the 11th most populous city and is the seat of the Texas State Capitol.

Fort Worth Cattle Drive Antique – Another capture in this antique look where capture this image of the cowboys driving the longhorn heard down the street at the Stockyard in Fort Worth. The Fort Worth Stockyards now celebrates Fort Worth’s long tradition as a part of the cattle industry with a cattle drive down the street as they would of done back in the day. The city has long been known as a cow town probably because of the Stockyards. The Fort Worth Stockyard is now listed on the National Register as a historical district since 1976. The Stockyards consist of mainly entertainment and shopping venues today that capitalize on the ‘Cowtown’ theme of Fort Worth. The Leddy boot company is located in the heart of the Stockyard along with the Maverick Fine Western wear. Also there saloons where customers ‘can ‘belly up’ to the bar, relax and have a cold beer while in the Stockyards; just like they did in the days of the cattle drives. Many bars and nightclubs are located in the vicinity, and the area has a Western motif. There is also an opry and a rodeo. The Fort Worth Stockyards are the last standing stockyards in the United States. On April 1, 2011, the Fort Worth Stockyards Stables were remodeled and reopened.

Check out these seasonal fall colors among the trees along the Frio river in the Texas Hill Country. These images were taken in Concan and Garner State Park in the Texas hill country along the Frio river as the leave were changing colors on the maple and cypress trees last year. Concan is a small community in Uvalde County in the southwestern portion of the Hill Country of Texas. It sits along the Frio River close to Garner State Park. Every year it is a popular spot for summer vacationers. Garner State Park is located in the community of Concan,Texas. Garner State Park, is the most popular state park in Texas for vacationers. If you want to get one of the cabins or shelters here you better make your reservation early or you might now be able to get one. Even for campers the park fills up during peak season before noon on many days. As a child we went there almost every year for three weeks every summer and they were some of the best vacation times in my memory. The park has lots to do in the area you can swim, kayak, paddle boat, hike, bird watch, horseback riding, bike or explore the area around the park. One of the most popular thing that draw the locals to the park is the nightly dances at the pavillion beginning in the spring and summer. You don’t need to stay in the park there are plenty of other places in Concan to camp or stay along the Frio River but again if you plan a vacation there in the summer peak season you better plan it early to make your reservation. The word Frio is the Spanish word for cold, so keep that in mind before you jump in to the river. The Frio river is to me one of the pretties rivers with it clear emerald waters in Texas.
