Texas Backroad Bluebonnets

Texas Backroad Bluebonnets – We found this back country road in the Texas hill country with these lovely bluebonnets along this county road. This was our second trip to the area with a blue sky which gave us some nice contrast on the flowers. We had been traveling many of the backroad in the hill country looking for bluebonnets and wildflower before we found this road and we really like the bluebonnets in this area. Texas wildflowers are a seasonal thing that last a few weeks and one thing we have learn is that just when you think they have all gone to seed you may have a section somewhere that pops up later like these along this road. This too will pass as we notice they were starting to go seed by our seccond trip two days later so maybe we will see them again next year. We can only hope!

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.

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 as the bluebonnets were much better today. This great early morning sunrise colors over this railroad tressel right before the sun game up gave some fantastic colors over these tracks with bluebonnets. 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 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.

Horseshoe Bay Lighthouse View

Horseshoe Bay Lighthouse View – Horseshoe Bay Lighthouse View in Marble Falls on this peninsula on Lake LBJ in the Texas hill country. This is a popular place for people to come for the Horseshoe Bay Resort with lots of recreational swimming, fishing, boating along with other activies. In this aerial you can see the wirtz dam, Horseshoe Bay Resort, along with the many of the condos and vacation homes along this lake. This lake is one of the few constant level lake along the highland lakes which makes it nice because in this area of the Texas hill country we are subject to a lot of droughts which can drop the lake down. Downtown Marble Falls is just a heart beat away for all they have to offer in this quant downtown area with restaurants, shops, and art galleries.

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.

Llano River Bridge Sunset Pano

The Llano river runs through this small town in the heart of the Texas hill country with a lot water dam. This popular place has a lot of tourism from its bluebonnets along the roads, to hunting and fishing and other recreation in the area.

Fireworks Over Lake Austin – Its that time again, Austin Fireworks over Lake Austin.

Fireworks over Lake Austin –
Its that time again, Austin Fireworks over Lake Austin. Here is a image from the fireworks we took at Lake Austin firework show. What I like is all the boats in the water watching the show from their boats. It is a great way to see some fireworks. No matter what your doing for the big holiday grilling out with family and friends it always good to topped off the evening with some local fireworks and what better way than by boat if you can. Don’t worry if you don’t have a boat you can watch from land too or go to the many other places including downtown Austin for some fireworks and symphony along with many small towns in Central Texas area for their fireworks. This images capture the show of Austin Fireworks on Lake Austin. This fireworks show over Lake Austin is put on by the country clubs and not every year do they have one or sometimes they do it on other times, so it pot luck as to if they have one this year or not. It is not posted anywhere so you just have to hope it on for this year.
