Texas Hill Country Waterfall 2

Texas Hill Country Waterfall 2 – We came across this beautiful scene as the springs were flowing and created nice waterfalls over the rocky limestone in the Texas Hill country landscape from all the excess rains lately. It was a nice capture with this aqua blue green pool at the bottom as the water flowed in from over the rocky outcrops along it way creating theses great waterfall cascading down to the pool below. The the Texas hill country we have some wonderful places where you can find these nice waterfalls after a good spring rain like we had this year that created this wonderful oasis landscape.

It was a nice capture with this aqua blue green pool at the bottom as the water flowed in from over the rocky outcrops along it way creating theses great waterfall cascading down to the pool below. The sun was starting to set in the sky so we would lose the light over the waterfalls so had to work fast to capture this tranquil hill country scene at this secret oasis. 

Sunrise Under the Pier

Sunrise Under the Pier – We had started working our way down the Texas Coast beach in Port Aransas early morning before sunrise and just as the sun was slightly above the horizon we shot this one and loved the look of the underside of the Caldwell Pier. Today the sunrise under the pier was just peeking above the horizon reflecting off the clouds and surf below as it gently rolled in carry some sea weed with the morning light for a nice coastal scene. The sun light was also reflecting off the water and wet sand which reflected the sunrise colors back under the pier to make for a pretty texas coastal landscape scene. The texas coast is located in the gulf of mexico and Port A has about 18 miles of beach with plenty to do from sport fishing, parasailing, swimming, surfing, birding, and many other event on the island to keep you from getting board. Just to get to the island can require a ferry ride to get to the island or you can come around the long way as we call it through Corpus Christi maybe a thirty drive down the shoreline of mustang island.

Sunrise Under The Pier – We had started working our way down the beach in Port Aransas this early morning before sunrise and just as the sun was slightly above the horizon we shot this one and loved the look of the underside of the Texas Caldwell Pier. Ths  sunrise under the pier was just peeking over the horizon with morning light reflecting off the surf and sand as it gently rolled in carry some sea weed onto the sandy beach to make for a pretty coastal landscape scene from under the pier. This Texas pier at sunrise is what I think of when I think about the beach here in Port A. D82-0840 .

Bluebonnet Sunset Through the Fence

Bluebonnet Sunset Through the Fence – A cedar wood fence with bluebonnets, and an oak tree at sunset make a nice texas Hill country landscape. The bluebonnet were growing in front of this wonderful old oak tree as the sunsets cast its ray through the cedar fence giving a hint of light over the wildflowers. This is what it looks like in the Texas hill country in springtime or we call it bluebonnet season. Spring is here and the bluebonnet is the first sign that it is here. We have traveled thousand of mile over the backroads of the hill country always searching for good locations and today we found another good spot for the perfect texas bluebonnet landscape. In Texas the lupine or bluebonnet along with other wildflowers start coming out in the southern part of the state around Feb and slowly move north through May. Then we have the summer Texas wildflowers that start popping up but most consider the bluebonnet as the main attraction if we can find other wildflowers that even better, but we gotta see the blue bonnets or we feel empty without it. In any case this was a great catch for a traditional texas bluebonnet landscape, its been a pretty good year so far but it fading fast in the hill country all good things must come to and end. Well at least till next year!

This is the iconic Texas scenery in the hill country that we have come to expect. The blue bonnet season is coming to an end for the bluebonnets in the hill country but just around the corner is the other wildflowers that should be popping up shortly to take it place.

Oak Tree and Texas Bluebonnets

Oak Tree and Texas Bluebonnets – A wonderful old oak tree among a field of texas bluebonnets down near Poteet Texas south of San Antonio late in the day as the sun sink lower in the sky. There were a lot of field of wildflowers in this area but most had been overtaken by the poppies. The poppies were introduced accidently about ten year ago we heard and unfortunely they have become invasive and in some place you will not see the wildflowers because the poppies have over taken over the areas. There were a few in this field but it was the best bluebonnets we saw since we were a little late to the party in this area. We like this field a lot and we took a few different shot from here. This image was just our beloved texas bluebonnets, an large oak tree, with sime mesquite tree along the fringes of the field with a few poppies mixed in on this ranch in south central area of the country for a nice Texas landscape. The texas bluebonnet is the state flower and begin with a small hard seed and over time the rain, wind will soften the seed so it can germinate in the fall and slowly over time it begins to take root and it bright green leave come out every spring usually from March to the end of April. That when it all begins and the flowers start to put on a spring show. No doubt that what happen in this great field of bluebonnets out south of San Antonio. We were lucky that they were allowed to grow in this field so we could capture this image. We look forward to the yearly show of bluebonnets that come out for such a short time.

Big Bend Bluebonnets with Mule Ear

Big Bend Bluebonnets with Mule Ear – One last Big Bend bluebonnets photo from our trip to Big Bend National Park in February this year. This show the bluebonnets with an octillo and shrubs with Mule Ear in the background. The bluebonnets were spectacular and this spot with the wildflowers growing in this desert landscape along side the octillo with the Chiso mountains was a nice landscape find. This is a desert so you expect to find octillos and shrubs cactus but the bluebonnet just gave this barren landscape life. The bluebonnets in Big Bend are a special lupine that can grow several feet tall and thrive in this hostile environment and this year was the first time we have seen them like this, just the right amount of rain in the fall and other conditions that were just right led to the best blooms we have ever seen here in the last ten years we have been coming to the park.

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.

Bluebonnets Images -Bluebonnet Sunrise Morning

Bluebonnet Images – Bluebonnet Sunrise Morning – We capture this bluebonnet images at sunrise just as the sun rays were coming through the trees and rising over this ranch with a great field of bluebonnets along with the morning mist hovering over the field. Bluebonnet pictures are one of our favorite to capture and on a good year like they were this year it was easy landscape to capture. We capture this near Ennis Texas but they have never come back like they were since that time. We can only hope they will be as good as this in the next growing season somewhere. The Texas lupine is actually several different varieties of bluebonnets but all are beautiful to see along the roads, in fields and gardens in spring time. It is getting close to bluebonnet season again so we await the latest crop of flowers and hope for a good year!

Fall in the Texas Hill Country

Fall in the Texas Hill Country – Texas hill country landscape canvas and prints – This is the clear waters of the Frio River as it flow downstream from Garner State Park with the cypress trees and maple trees lining the river showing their fall color on this day. The sun was just at the right level to send it rays through this cypress tree and shine down into the river and show all the river rocks. Autumn in the Texas hill country is my favorite time of the year it can be colorful as the cypress turn this rusty shade of orange to red and the maple change from yellow to orange along the blue green waters of the Frio river in this texas landscape. In the background you can see Old Baldy from the other side of Garner State Park a favorite climbing spot for many to the area.

The water was running faster than normal after a storm the night before so I had to very carefully work my way out into the waters as they were flowing over the low water crossing just below my knees so there was little room for error.  My partner remind me to keep the camera out of the waters if I go in. You can see Old Baldy in the background a favorite climbing spot for many tourist to the area.
