These are a few of the best Fort Worth skylines and cityscapes images of this north Texas city available for print on canvas, metal and fine art prints. Fort Worth is a fast growing city and is the fith largest city in the state of Texas, it is also the 16th largest in the USA. Fort Worth was once a bustling cattle trading industry around 19th century when it was part of the cattle drives of Chisholm trail. The city was founded in 1849 as an army outpost and was located on a bluff overlooking the Trinity River. These past events were what gave Fort Worth it name of cow town and to this day it still maintains it western heritage. Today Ft Worth is a modern city with several universities like TCU and A&M university, top ranted museums like the Kimbell Art Museum and the Amon Carter of American Museum, several fortune 500 companies like Bell Hellicopter, Lockheed Martin, American Airline, Pier 1, to name a few. dsc08861
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. They are located next door to the Hyatt hotel in an original Historic Stockyards building that was built in 1912. These stables offer full care boarding, overnight boarding, hourly boarding, horse rentals on the open trails of the Trinity River and carriage rides. Boarders can ride their horses all around the Historic Stockyard
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.

Lake Travis is part of the Highland lakes, after Mansfield dam was built in 1942 it became the largest reservoir for water storage creating the largest area of water where the Oasis overlook is. The Oasis restaurant is popular with locals and tourist and it not uncommon to find buses lined up in the parking lot.

The Texas Star is one of it most popular and longest running rides. The fair run along the same time as the college football game which is traditionally between Texas and Oklahoma. We love the Texas Star Ferris wheel with a vintage look in this image. This ferris wheel can be seen from a distance being that it is one of the largest in the US.

We also have none vintage image of the Texas Star.

This is another capture of the mansion and oak trees right before the sun was fully up and before the mist lifted on this early morning at the Oak Alley Plantation which I thought worked best as a black and white image. This misty look give this image a moody feel with the mansion and large old oaks in BW as the the morning mist settles over the property seems to transport you back in time. The Oak Alley plantation is a popular spot for tourist looking for history of the deep south and a feel for what life long ago was like on these plantations. The plantation was created in the early 1800’s as a surgar cane plantation and was worked by slaves so it rich in historic value. The plantation got it name from the many live oak trees that were planted over 300 years ago prior to the plantations existance. Some refer to this area as Oak valley or Seven Oaks and it is near the community of Vacherie St James Parish in Louisiana. Many movies has been made here especially including anything releated to the deep south civil war era along with many spooky movies. The Oak Alley Plantation is a National Historic Landmark as it is rich in history and is visited by many toursit yearly. The Foudation maintains the property today for the this historic site.
