Fall at Garner State Park

Fall at Garner State Park – Texas Landscape Fall Prints and Canvas – The long branches of the cypress trees stretch out their limbs over the Frio river as it flows downstream toward the Old Baldy before it makes a turn downstream. You can see the fall rusty red colors in the cypress trees along the bank of the Frio. The sun was shining on the other side and you can see the color changes of the maples and reflect the colors back into the waters. After some heavy rains the water was flowing on the Frio river through Garner State Park so the cypress were in the water so I waded out into the cold waters and capture this image so I could capture Old Baldy in the back ground in this photo.

Texas Bluebonnet Sunset Panorama

Texas Bluebonnet Sunset Panorama – Texas Bluebonnet Wildflowers Landsape Flower Print
We were lucky to capture this wonderful field of a Texas bluebonnet sunset with a sprinkling of Indian paintbrush wildflowers with these hay bales with this great colorful sky with oranges, and pinks in this rural landscape. We came across them accidentally driving the back roads of Texas and we were allowed to come on to the farm property and photograph them for several days. These were the fullest field of bluebonnets we found this year. A great field of flower so of course we came back for a sunrise 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 Texas wildflowers. When it comes to bluebonnets 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. 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.

Sunset Over Texas blue bonnets Panorama – Texas Wildflower Landscape – This loved this capture of this field of Texas blue bonnets with hay bales in a panorama with this colorful sunset sky over this rural farm land.  We like that we were able to capture this wonderful sunset just as the suns rays popped over the top of the hay bale as it got lower in the sky in this wonderful field of bluebonnets wildflowers in a rural Texas setting. You can see some indian paintbrush through out the incredible blue landscape at this Texas farm is overtaken in wildflower at sunset.

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.

Bluebonnet Dirt Road – Captured these bluebonnets along this cedar fence and dirt road in the backroads of the Texas hill country.  We had to go through two low water crossing with water up to the door to get here. This is just an example of the rural landscape in the hill country and how lovely it looks especially around bluebonnet season. To catch that Texas  landscapes you almost alway have to go down the back roads.

Yucca Among the Bluebonnets – Captured this photo of a field of bluebonnets in front of a group of blomming yuccas in the Texas Hill Country on a nice afternoon with blue skys. It has been extremely overcast for ever it seems, so it nice to finally get out and get some photo and this one with the cactus and bluebonnets says Texas more than anything else.  This bluebonnet landscape was a great find as this was a great year for wildflowers in central texas.

Colorful Wildflowers in Springtime – This great field of wildflowers with bluebonnets, and little yellow perky sue in this colorful field of flowers make for a nice contrast along the river in the Texas hill country.  I like the little pop of red from the indian paintbrush in the middle of the bluebonnet field on this lovely day with blue sky and white puffy clouds along the tree line of the river. If you want to add a bit of spring this would make a nice wildflower landscape from the Texas Hill Country.

Incredible Bluebonnet Landscape  – I pulled up this wonderful field of bluebonnets from my archives to share this great bluebonnet landscape along the Colorado river from spring a few years back.  This is Muleshoe Bend park and this was the most incredible site of texas bluebonnets I think I had ever seen.  As far as the eye could see it was acreas of bluebonnets along the river.  This area is normally under water and for a few short years during the drought this is what came up where the water had once been.  Well the water is back up and the bluebonnets are gone we just have a memories of these wonderful wildflower as they once were.

Golden Blue Bonnet Sunrise – Captured this at sunrise as the sun came up it cast this golden glow over the clouds and river with just a hint of light on the bluebonnets.  We thought it made a nice texas landscape image of this great field of blueblonnet at the lake in the texas hill country. 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.

Bluebonnet Images – Bluebonnet Sunrise Mist  – We capture this bluebonnet sunrise this as the sun rays were rising over this ranch with the bluebonnet and 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 texas landscape to capture. Many years since the images of bluebonnets have been more elusive but we are persistant and continue to search out images of bluebonnets and other wildflowers every year.

Texas Longhorns and Bluebonnets – We capture this image with this family of Texas Longhorn and her calf plus friend who stopped to pose for this picture in the bluebonnets. The mother is on the right and when we came the first time she took her calf as far away as possible from us. The second visit I guess did it. We loved all the different version of horns and this calf with his little horns were just too adorable in this field of bluebonnets.

Wildflowers Landscape – We love these colorful wildflowers landscape of bluebonnets, and indian paintbrush in this field with an old rusty tractor in the Texas Hill Country. The Texas lupine or bluebonnet are probably the most photographed wildflower every spring. People travel from great distances to try and capture a unique image with bluebonnets so this is just that kind of photo with the old rusty tractor and wildflowers.

Blue Bonnets Road – Bluebonnets beside the road in Muleshoe Park which were beautiful this year with some great clouds to make for a perfect image. This area is usually under water but for the last few years we have been in a drought so instead of water we see bluebonnets. This was one of the best areas in Texas for bluebonnet landscapes for a couple of year till the lakes in the Texas hill country filled back up.  It was lovely till then to see so many texas wildflowers in this road of blue.

Field of Texas Bluebonnets at Sunset Pano – This great field of Texas bluebonnets at sunset was probably the last we will see around the Texas Hill Country for this year. This panorama of bluebonnets landscape looked like waves of blue flowers in this field and the sunset cast this nice orange and red glow over the fiield of blue wildflowers. Another successful year of bluebonnets in the Texas Hill Country.

Flying Pegasus Dallas

This cityscape image of Dallas with the orginal Red Flying Neon Pegasus Horse sitting on top of an oil derrick which rotates for different views is now located at the Omni Hotel in downtown Dallas. In this image you can see the Reunion Tower and the Omni Hotel with the Red neon Pegasus sitting atop of an oil derick and rotating around so it can be viewed from any angle. This neon Pegasus had sat on top of the Magnolia building since the 1934 which was 29 floors high building and it had been like a beacon for all who lived in and travel to Dallas. The red pegasus was used as a symbol for the Magnolia Oil Company for many years till it became the Mobil Oil comapny. In the mean time this flying pegasus sitting a top of the Magnolia building has become an iconic landmark for the city for many years. In 1999 the orginal pegasus for taken down from the top of Magnolia building where it had sat since 1934 due to rust,corrosion and age over time need to come down. It was replace with a new pegasus. However, some in Dallas wanted to know what happen to the orginal Pegasus and began a search by a man name Jeremy McKane after a conversation with 82 year old June Mattingly who explain the importance of the flying horse symbol he was even more sure they needed to find it and see if it could be restored. McKane was recruited by Matthew Southwest to help provide the art for the Omni Hotel and after speaking with the vise president Jeff West of the company a common bond was form to find the Pegasus. McKain with the help of Jeff continue to talk to people and over a period of time the orginal flying pegasus was found in a city storage shed near White Rock. Jeff West got the finacing from his company to restore the project so with McKain and a group of artist and experts on restoration they were able to bring this landmark back to life on the lawn of the Omni Hotel for all to enjoy again. d82-4917
