Heavenly Bluebonnet Sunset

Heavenly Bluebonnet Sunset – We pulled this Texas bluebonnet image from the archive where we captured an amazing sunset that day we only have our memories of this place as it gone for good now. This field was full of bluebonnets as far as you could see is gone for ever, it is now the new site of the PEC corporate office just north of Marble Falls that is next to the famous bluebonnet farm house that every one has images of. However a photo of bluebonnets is always a bluebonnets image which is always a good day. In Texas we love our bluebonnets here.

Heavenly Bluebonnet Sunset – Just came across this image of the field of bluebonnets we took several years ago next to the old farm house in Marble Falls. Unfortunately this field is gone forever now as they are building the New PEC office there. I had not put this out here but since it the last memory of this bluebonnet landscape next to the old farm house it deserve to be seen. Love the sky which was a swirl of clouds at sunset and the sky picked up the reds and pinks colors and cast a nice glow over this bluebonnet landscape as the sun set.
