Bluebonnet Images – Bluebonnets Sunset at Lake

Bluebonnet Images – Bluebonnets Sunset at Lake – A thick field of Texas bluebonnets taken at sunset near a lake as the cloud backlight with these pink colors across the sky . The sky reflected the colors into the water below as the sunset in the west. These bluebonnet wildflowers were wonderful this year they created a blanket of blue flowers over this field for a beautiful Texas landscape. This was one of the best years for bluebonnets everywhere in texas. The bluebonnet fields seem to be carpeted in lupines or blue bonnets that were so thick never have I seen them this good. Every year its a new wait and see what the texas wildflowers will be.

Golden Glow Over Bluebonnets

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.

Golden Glow over Blue Bonnets – We capture this sunrise over a field of bluebonnets through the mesquite tree just as the sun came up and it created this nice golden glow. You can see the sunset is just coming up over the horizon through the two mesquite trees in this landscape. This was a nice field of wildflowers in the texas hill country. The Texas bluebonnet or lupine was declare a state flower in 1971 by the Texas legislature. Also Lady Bird Johnson help in her push to create the Highway beautification Act which is how wildflowers in Texas took root. We can thank Lady Bird for these beautiful spring wildflowers that are across our highways and park and where ever they may be.

Sunrise at Santa Elena Canyon2

A Texas sunrise just before the sun pop over the nearby mountains from this vantage point in Santa Elena Canyon in Big Bend National Park. Even before sunrise it rewarded me with these beautiful colorful clouds over the Rio Grande landscape from my vantage point high in the Santa Elena Canyon. Another good capture of some great Texas landscape scenery. Big Bend is an isolated area and for us it is an eight hour drive just to get there but it has always rewarded us with some magical scenery. Big Bend National Park is located in southwest Texas and includes the Chisos mountain range and a large swath of the Chihuahuan Desert. The area gets very little rainfall so don’t expect a lush scenery it is a desert landscape. In Texas you don’t have a lot of mountains and this is one of the few areas you can see them. The Chiso mountain range are some of the tallest mountains in Texas second only to the Guadalupe Mountains. The Santa Elena Canyon were carved out by the Rio Grande river with it soft limestone rock wall which allowed the waters to carve out a path downstream towards the gulf of mexico. On this day the pre sunrise was spectacular with the colorful clouds over the Rio Grande river and Big Bend Landscape from this vantage point looking through the octillo along the limestone cliffs.

Captured another great west Texas sunrise just before the sun pop over the nearby mountains from this vantage point in Santa Elena Canyon in Big Bend National Park. Even before sunrise it rewarded me with these beautiful colorful clouds over the west texas Rio Grande landscape from my vantage point in the Santa Elena Canyon. In this image you can see the colorful clouds through the octillo and prickly pear catus growing on the steep cliff of the canyon walls of this wonderful Texas landscape.  You can see the Santa Elena Canyon from a pretty good distance in the park and it is the most impressive in Big Bend National Park.  The Rio Grande changes direction abruptly after following beneath the  Sierra Ponce cliffs for several miles heading west, cutting through the mountains via a deep, narrow gorge.  It has national significance as the largest protected area of Chihuahuan Desert topography and ecology in the United States.

Bluebonnet 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.

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.

Colorful 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.

Incredible Bluebonnet Landscape  – I pulled up this wonderful field of bluebonnets from my archives to share this great bluebonnet landscape along the Colorado river from spring a few years back.  This is Muleshoe Bend park and this was the most incredible site of texas bluebonnets I think I had ever seen.  As far as the eye could see it was acreas of bluebonnets along the river.  This area is normally under water and for a few short years during the drought this is what came up where the water had once been.  Well the water is back up and the bluebonnets are gone we just have a memories of these wonderful wildflower as they once were.

Bluebonnet pictures are one of our favorite to capture and on a good year like they were this year it was easy texas landscape to capture. Many years since the images of bluebonnets have been more elusive but we are persistant and continue to search out images of bluebonnets and other wildflowers every year.

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.

Wildflowers Landscape – We love these colorful wildflowers landscape of bluebonnets, and indian paintbrush in this field with an old rusty tractor in the Texas Hill Country.

People travel from great distances to try and capture a unique image with bluebonnets so this is just that kind of photo with the old rusty tractor and wildflowers.

Blue Bonnets Road – Bluebonnets beside the road in Muleshoe Park which were beautiful this year with some great clouds to make for a perfect image. This area is usually under water but for the last few years we have been in a drought so instead of water we see bluebonnets. This was one of the best areas in Texas for bluebonnet landscapes for a couple of year till the lakes in the Texas hill country filled back up.  It was lovely till then to see so many texas wildflowers in this road of blue.

Field of Texas Bluebonnets at Sunset Pano – This great field of Texas bluebonnets at sunset was probably the last we will see around the Texas Hill Country for this year. This panorama of bluebonnets landscape looked like waves of blue flowers in this field and the sunset cast this nice orange and red glow over the fiield of blue wildflowers. Another successful year of bluebonnets in the Texas Hill Country.

Aerial Austin Skyline Pano Downtown along Lady Bird Lake

We love Austin Skyline in the fall and this aerial pano show off the very urban Austin skyline that captures the downtown and all the high rise buildings hugging the shoreline of Lady Bird Lake with the city and IH35 in view. Again the water had this nice reflection of the clouds and high rise buildings in the water along with the colorful fall trees along the banks. This image capture this urban landscape of the Austin Skyline from the east side and shows some of the citys tallest buildings like the Austonian, the new Fairmont Hotel, with the top of the Frost just barely peeking above the crowd along the shoreline. Also you can see the Frank Erwin Center and the UT stadium along IH35 to name just a few things seen in this cityscape. Until they finish the Independent the Austonian will remain the tallest in town at least for another year or more. You can just barely see the top of the State Capitol trying to peek above all the other high rise buildings in downtown but it is there at least for now. Austin is the fastest growing city in the US and the 11th most populous city and is the seat of the Texas State Capitol. At the last census this urban city had a population of just over 947,000 and growing. beecreekphoto.com

Austin Skyline Reflection

Take a look at our latest capture of the Austin skyline reflection as it is reflected in the pool of water from near the Palmer Event Center and the Long Center. We loved that we finally were able to retake this image of the Austin skyline reflection in this pool of water with this nice blue sky and white clouds. We have waited for almost then years to retake this photo because this area of the skyline has had so many cranes up for years. We had a window to catch the Austin skyline reflection image today with it latest modern architecture skyscrapers clearly in view from this area. Austin skyline has been constantly changing as new skyscrapers are added along the shoreline of Lady Bird Lake on a regular basis every few years. Matter of fact the Austin cityscape in downtown has been changing at such a rapid pace that it has been hard to keep up, but for now this is the latest and greatest modern urban image of the skyline from this location. Austin has a population of 947,890 and it is one of the fastest growing large city in the US today. Austin is known for its live music events, 6th street music scene, University of Texas, Texas Capital, and lakes, rivers, Hill Country, and many more things that make this area special.

Austin Skyline Reflection – Our latest Austin skyline from this location on a beautiful blue sky day across the reflecting pool of water. I really liked the reflection of the downtown buildings, and the blue sky and clouds that reflected back into this pool of water. It was one of those perfect blue skies and puffy white cloud days that we were lucky enough to be here for. Austin skyline has been changing radically over the last five or so years that it has been hard to get a image without twenty or more cranes it. For now thing have slowed down in this area enough to come back and capture a photo only because there is no more room to build anything at least for now.
