Golden Glow over Bluebonnet Landscape Pano : Prints Available

Golden Glow over Bluebonnet Landscape Pano – Texas Wildflowers – We have been hoping that this farmland in the Texas hill country bluebonnets would come back and this year we got lucky. We capture several images of this field of bluebonnets in a panorama right before sunset which created this nice golden glow over the wildflowers. We came here several times as we never know when or if this bluebonnet landscape will come back again. We spoke with the property owner who was happy we appreciated the wildflowers as much as she did. This was a hugh field of texas bluebonnets in the hill country probably the biggest field of wildflowers in years. Even though the rest of the hill country was only so so this year this field came back after several years of no flowers. Some say bluebonnets or lupines come back every couple of years, but we have seen some field never come back but this year we got lucky. These are some of our favorite field of wildflowers landscapes to capture, the texas bluebonnets in the back roads of the Texas. The bluebonnet is native to the area and the state flower of Texas. All bluebonnets are the state flower but the one we capture the most is the Lupinus texensis. This wildflower has the blue colored pea shaped leaves with the white top which have been planted along the roads by the highway dept. since the days of Lady Bird when she promoted native wildflowers in Texas. Sometimes the bluebonnets will have a violet to purple tint depending on the suns angle in this you see the color change because of the low angle of the sun over this field.

Texas Bluebonnets at the Lake Sunset Pano – We love this twilight after the sunset went down over this wonderful field of bluebonnets and with this colorful pink and orange sky. We came to this location along the water several times to capture both sunrise and sunset of these wonderful bluebonnet wildflowers at the lake edge. Capturing good bluebonnets is a matter of luck many times and we were lucky that this area had bluebonnet wildflowers again after the lake went back down which allowed them to come back so we took many photos from here. We like this little leafless tree that was positioned along the waters edge and decided to use it in our capture. The Texas hill country dry river bed came back to life this year after the waters went down along the colorado river and this field of bluebonnets popped up. It was delightful to see the field of wildflowers again not as much as the first time years ago, but still wonderful. Spring time in the Texas hill country can be magical when fields of wildflowers appear in great numbers. We live not far from here so we came here many times till word got out and the bluebonnet got trampled down. The texas hill country has been one of the best places to capture pictures of bluebonnets landscapes in the past and we can only hope forever. Taking pictures of bluebonnets is one of our favorite things to capture.

Sunrise Glow Over Lake Bluebonnets : Prints Available

Sunrise Glow Over Lake Bluebonnets – This wonderful landscape field of bluebonnet wildflowers was a site to see this spring. Over this bluebonnet season we came to this area over five times to catch sunrises and sunsets. This area is the beginning of the Texas hill country and we drive a good distance trying to find an capturing good field of bluebonnets images which can be a lot of luck and a lot of driving. I don’t know how many miles we put on our vehicle every spring trying to find nice field of bluebonnets or other wildflowers. When you find a location with lots of wildflowers, it is especially hard when everyone can get in them because they get trampled so fast so you have to find them fast and get your photo before they get too trampled. This year we did get to this area before it got too overrun and capture several good images ofthe masses got here to capture this sunrise over the lake. Really this is part of the Colorado river chain in the Texas Hill Country but a lot refer to it as the lake. This park had a bumper crop of bluebonnets several years ago after a drought exposed the field to the light of day. Now we again had a drought and the field is again exposed so many bluebonnets came back but nothing like it had been years ago, but still still a nice bunch of wildflowers in one place. So we set out to capture the sunrise over the lake and this morning gave us a nice glow just as the sun rays broke the surface of the Texas hill country.

We like the fence and red poppies in front so that where we wanted to focus the image. Poppies are a popular flower to be grown in gardens as well in the wild they grow best somewhere between the end of March and through the end of April in the spring time. The red poppy flower also can be called the corn rose, field poppy, flanders poppy, red poppy, red weed. I suppose they get out of hand just like the white poppies in the hill country.

Bluebonnet Railroad Tracks Sunrise

Bluebonnet Railroad Tracks Sunrise – We have come to this old abandoned rail road track in the past years, but this year instead of catching a sunset we decided to try for a sunrise and we got lucky. Today we had a great sunrise over this railroad tressel right before the sunrise pop over the horizon with some fantastic colors. I managed to get a few shot before some heavyier clouds moved in the predawn but cleared a bit for a sunrise shot later on. Any case the pre dawn sunrise over these bluebonnets were a great catch in the Texas hill country. Texas bluebonnets at the rail road track in the texas hill country is alway a reason to celebrate! We love our Texas Wildflowers that Lady Bird Johnson promote heavily in our state part of the highway beautification from fifty years ago.

Any case the pre dawn sunrise over these bluebonnets were a great catch in the Texas hill country. Texas bluebonnets are a favorite subject of ours to photograph but add a sunrise over the tracks and bluebonnet and you can beat it. Always a good day in the Texas hill country where you can find bluebonnets and other texas wildflowers growing.

Chiso Bluebonnets

Big Bend Bluebonnets  – Last years memories of the super crop of texas bluebonnets down in Big Bend National Park  We went this year and didn’t find much in the park mostly patches along the roads  So decide to post this capture we took in the early morning with a bit of sun kissed texas  bluebonnets on the side of this sloping hillside cascading down into this field toward the distant landmark Cerro Castellan and the Chiso mountains in view. This is a desert landscape that reguires a hardly plant to survive so these are special native bluebonnet design to exist in this harsh desert landscape. The 2019  year crop of texas bluebonnets was the best we have ever seen with thick patches of one to two foot tall lupine flowers along the roads and on the hill sides through out the park. Some call these texas lupines the Big Bend bluebonnets or Chiso Bluebonnets which only grow in Big Bend National Park and the Chihuahua desert regions. Whatever you call them it is site to see hope we will see it again in the future!

Texas Windmill and Bluebonnets 419

Texas Windmill and Bluebonnets 419  – We capture this great field of texa bluebonnets with a wind mill in the background and this nice oak tree for a iconic texas scene. There are lot of windmills in Texas but finding them in a field of bluebonnets is not as common so we felt lucky. The Texas hill country has it fair share of windmills but most of the time they are near electric lines, or hidden behind trees are in a state of disrepair from years of storms and high winds not in a field of bluebonnets so today we are lucky.. Today we found a nice one with a few clouds in the blue sky and nice field of wildflowers. This is the iconic Texas landscape scenery in the hill country in spring.

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 Wildflowers

Big Bend Bluebonnets Wildflowers- Big Bend bluebonnets in the Big bend National Park as the wildflowers climb up the mountain sides a rare sight. The bluebonnets on this ridge had the Santa Elena Canyon and Cerro Castillian as the distant landscape. There is nothing like a mountain back drop for your bluebonnet images. Bluebonnets were thick on the mountian sides off the ross maxwell scenic drive so we stopped to get some roadside photos and the next thing we know we have walk a mile up the mountain side. It was one of those moments when you look in another direction and there are even more blueboonets on another hill side or along a ridge that you just have to get too. It ws an amazing site. There were so many to be seen and such a short time to get the photos of the bluebonnets on our trip. There is just something about being in the presents of mountain and desert landscape and throw in some bluebonnets and it brings the kid out in you it is kind of a magical event. This species of lupine grows taller than other texas bluebonnets they are several feet tall and there stems and seeds are much larger than other bluebonnet plants. This is what makes them a little more hardy for the harsh weather conditions in west texas. Some of the comman name for these bluebonnet are the big bend bluebonnet, big bend lupine, chiso bluebonnet, and havard bluebonnet to name a few. Regardless of what you call them they are a wonderful site to see in this desert landscape. We have heard about how great these bluebonnets have been in the past but this is the first time in ten years we have seen them like this. In the past we only found a few small patches along the roads. We are glad we made the eight hour drive down to catch them before they are gone.

Bluebonnets and Hay Bales at Sunrise

This morning sunrise over these Texas bluebonnets and hay bales had a nice sprinkling of red through out from the Indian paintbrush which was a spectacular show of wildflowers on the rural back roads in our state. The morning sunrise created these nice sunrays that filter over the top of the trees and spread out over this large field of Texas bluebonnets and other wildflowers with these round hay bales in the field. We will show more of these images of the bluebonnet and hay bales over the next week in our photo of the day because they were so unique in this neck of the woods. This was the best field of bluebonnets we found this year so we came back several days to photograph it. Lucky for us the rancher gave us permission to come on his property and photograph this great field of wildflowers in this rural Texas setting. So of course we came back for a sunset photo too. You don’t see bluebonnets fields with hay bales like this in our area so this was a unique find in our quest for all images of wildflowers. When it comes to blueblonnets wildflowers Texans including myself go a little nuts over them, people come from all over to see them, take selfies in them, do family portraits, and for many other reason. In any case it is a very popular spring flower and there are people who follow the yearly wildflower reports like a bible just to find the best of the best every year. Now every years is not a bumper crop so it really depends on the weather, amount of rain we receive in the fall and again in the spring, and I have been told (not verified) they come up better every other year and if they were allowed to seed properly or not. The bluebonnets Lupines or Lupinus Texensis are the state flower of Texas. However, all lupines or considered the state flower in Texas. There are several other types in Texas such as the Lupinus Havardi or Big Bend Bluebonnet, the Lupinus Argenteus or silvery lupine, and several more but the most popular for most people is the ones in this field the Lupinus Texensis. As long as there are bluebonnets in Texas we will continue our quest to capture the best of the best every year.

We got here right before sunrise and as the sun rays came over the trees we capture this bluebonnet image as the morning light lit up this field of texas bluebonnets wildflowers. This was the best field of bluebonnets we found this year so we came back several days to photograph it. Lucky for us the farmer gave us permission to come in and photograph this great field of rural texas wildflowers.

Bluebonnets at the Farmhouse

Texas Bluebonnets and Hay bales

The morning light kissed this field of Texas bluebonnets and hay bales with a pop of red from the sprinkling of indian paintbrush through out the field of wildflowers. I don’t think I had seen such a big field of hay bales with Texas blueblonnets wildflowers in them ever, it was a sight to see and the rancher gave us permission to come on his property and photograph them which was even better. So of course we were there for sunrise and sunset. Can’t get better than this when it comes to Texas wildflowers along the rural backroads of Texas in spring time. The Texas bluebonnet or Lupinus Texensis is the state flower. In 1971 the Texas legislature made all similar species of bluebonnet the state flower. We can also thank Lady Bird Johnson for her help to put wildflowers along the roadside in texas by her push to get the Texas Highway Beautification Act passed in 1965 which put the bluebonnets and other spring flowers on our roads through out the state. Every spring time Texas comes alive with wildflowers and for April you can see bluebonnets throughout the state. Ever year is different because bluebonnets tend to come out strong every two years, but it still depends on fall and spring rains which determine how good they will be from year to year. However any year with bluebonnet is good one in my view.

Texas Bluebonnets and Hay bales Landscape – The morning light kiss this field of hay bales with Texas bluebonnets and a pop of red from the sprinkling of indian paintbrush through out the field of wildflowers. I don’t think I had seen such a big field of haybales with Texas blueblonnets through out this season or any before, it was a sight to see and the farmer gave us special permission to come on his property and photograph them which was even better. Cant get better than this when it comes to Texas wildflowers with a rural texas setting in spring time.

Bluebonnets at the Farmhouse

Another capture of the bluebonnets farmhouse in Marble Falls in the Texas Hill Country. The Texas lupine or bluebonnet is one of the most popular things to see in the spring time in Texas. People come from all over to enjoy these colorful wildflowers. However ever year is not the bumper crop we expect some year depending on the amount of rain we get in the fall determines what we get in the spring. We have seen bumper crops of wildflowers some year which have been beyond our expectations other years not so much. I wanted to post this image because I have reason to believe this might be the last year we will see bluebonnets at this old farmhouse. This place has drawn photographers from all around both amature and pros to this spot because of it uniqeness with the old farm house and rusting farm equipment place just so in the front of the place. In 1971 the Texas Legislature declare all bluebonnets in the state to be the state flower. Also around this time Lady Bird Johnson had help push the Texas Highway Beautification Act so that we would continue to see all these wonderful wildflowers along our roads and highways. Thats what make springtime in the Hill country special.

This seems to be an endless field of bluebonnets up to the house and then these wonderful blue skies with puffy white cloud.  We have taken a lot of photos of this house in the Hill country but today we have these nice skies brought us back for another visit. This was the last year we will see bluebonnets from here so wanted to make sure we got them out.
