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. There are many varieties of bluebonnets in Texas from the chiso bluebonnet, to the sandyland and of course the Lupinus texensis lupine, has been the state flower since the 1901 and all other bluebonnets were included in 1971 by the Texas Legislature which made all lupines in the state the state flower.

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.

Sunset Over the Bluebonnets Pano – Another capture of the field of bluebonnets panorama after the sunset and brought up these nice colors of pinks and orange in the sky.

Red Poppies at the Fence Pano – We love this house with it fence and a row of red corn poppies in front. We captured this in front of this small stone house as we were leaving in a panorama. 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.

It always great to find them no matter where they grow. A litte added benefit was behind this field of wildflowers was the vineyard that grow the grapes for the winerys in this area.

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.

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.
