Texas Bluebonnet Sunset Landscape Vertical

Texas Bluebonnet Sunset Landscape Vertical – Texas bluebonnets in the hill country with cactus, a windmill, and a sunset on one of the many back roads we traveled over the last six weeks is a great last minute find. It is always a delight when we can find a nice field of texas bluebonnet wildflowers with prickly pear cactus and a windmill with a great sunset in the sky for that traditional Texas Hill country landscape. 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.

Bluebonnets in the Texas Hill Country

Bluebonnets in the Texas Hill Country – We came across this lush field of bluebonnets in the Texas Hill Country outside of Llano on a back road in the hills. We had been traveling for over a month trying to find nice fields of bluebonnet wildflowers on these back roads. On this day the sun was starting to get lower in the sky and cast a golden glow over the trees as it was going down but with enough light left for the blueblonnets along this curved road. These are texas bluebonnets lupines that grow through out the state but the hill country has some of the best when its a good year. It looks like this might be an average good year for the wildflowers so we are happy to finally see more flowers this year. We have had either drought or flooding both of which are not alway good for the bluebonnets and other wildflowers, however they seem to be a little better so far this year. We love our bluebonnets in Texas we have festivals for them, we sell everything with bluebonnets on them including coffee cups, water bottles, T-shirt and pretty much anything you can think of! Bluebonnets start showing up around Texas in February down in the Big Bend area and around some coastal areas south of San Antonio. We were on my way down to beach for a friend birthday party in February and there were already blooming bluebonnets on IH35 going south from San Antonio even though that was more than a month early from when we see normally see them in the hill country. As a general rule the best time to see the Bluebonnets can be any time between the end of March and end of April. They might still be around but the grasses start to overtake the bluebonnet by the end of April, however all is not lost as other wildflowers will start showing up in May and June.

We have had either drought or flooding both of which are not alway good for the bluebonnets and other wildflowers, however this years crop in the Texas hill country has been a pleasant surprise so far this year. You have appreciate how wonderful it is to take a drive in the hill country in springtime and see all these wonderful wildflowers just growing along the roads.  The wildflowers can be seen along the main highways in the cities or on the back country road anywhere from February through April.  We even have bluebonnet festivals just to show how much people in Texas love their wildflowers.

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.

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.

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!

Bluebonnet Sunrise on the River

Bluebonnet Sunrise on the River – We capture this image early one morning at sunrise as the sun rose along the Colorado river with this field of Texas blue bonnets. The Texas bluebonnet or also called the Lupinus Texensis were wonderful this morning. I am not a morning person but this morning we were up at 5am and drove an hour to this special spot to capture this field of bluebonnets at sunrise along the river. After trying 3 days in a row the sky finally looked like it was going to be the one so we dashed out to this morning hoping to capture the image at dark thirty in the morning and got there just as the sky was starting to lighten up. We quickly got setup and waited for the sun to pop up over the hill side. The buebonnet or lupine are distinct to this area and is also the Texas state flower.

Springtime in Texas is my favorite time because of the wildflowers we can all thank Lady Bird for help in making spring special every year.
