Texas Hill Country River Sunset Pano

Texas Hill Country River Sunset Pano – The sun was just setting and back lit these clouds which were reflected nicely into the water along the river. The Texas river is a tributary of the Colorado river and flows approximately 106 miles into Central Texas region. The river flow through the hill country from springs near Kimble County east through Fredericksburg through Blanco County through Stonewall, Johnson City, and continues it flow into Lake Travis on the west side of Travis County in Central Texas. We capture this right at sunset and got some nice colors in the sky which was reflected in the waters. There are some moments when the beauty of the hill country really shine through and that is as the sun sets in the west or as the sunrises in the east.  If you have a body or water, rivers or some hills it can be a magical landscape image. Texas scenery has lots of variety it can go from the desert landscape to the  swamps of east Texas, or mountains of big bend to the farmland in the heart of the state. No matter where you go the scenery will change to something new and exciting.

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 : Prints Available

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. For most the most popular is the Lupinus texensis or texas bluebonnet which are here in the hill country which range in color from blue to violet shade depending on the light also the texas hill bluebonnets have the white tops which are known is said to look like a bonnet.

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.

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. We had moved to a different site when the colors from the earlier sunset appeared in the sky. We had been photographing nearby when we saw the colors and turn our camera that way where the road curved around the bend at the lake. 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 but still wonderful. We capture this wonderful field of wildflowers just as the sunset colors appear over the trees tops with enough light left for the the flowers.

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.

We capture this at the seed farm out side Fredrickburg Texas with this field great red corn poppies field. Red Corn poppies can be found as wildflowers or planted in flower beds. 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.

Hill Country Rest Stop at Sunset – We captured this hill country rest stop right at sunset. This rest stop in the Texas hill country was a suprise as it was a new one along our travels in the hills. It had this lovely tree with some nice looking yuccas and picnic table all to make your rest pleasant. We love that we captured the sunset through the nice live oak tree. Live oaks do not drop their leaves in the winter and this highway rest stop in the hill country had a lot of great live oak trees. The hill country has some wonderful scenery if you know where to find it. We have travel this area for many years chasing wildflowers and fall colors but this time it was the sunset that got our attention.

Hill Country Texas Bluebonnets

We captured these wonderful bluebonnets west of Marble Falls in the Texas hill country. We pretty much thought that the bluebonnets were done for the season last year  in 2019 when had a good rain a few days before which brought out this wonderful ranch full of bluebonnets. Now we almost didn’t make the trip but we decided one more trip into the texas hill country and we were lucky we found this wonderful field. The wildflowers were thick with a few poppies and indian paintbrush but it was mostly texas bluebonnets with a back drop of mesquite trees which is what the hill country has a lot of.

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.

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.

Rural Covered Bridge Fall

Rural Covered Bridge Fall – On the back roads of the Ozark we found this covered Bridge with all the autumn colors around it. In this scene this old bridge sets the stage for this wonderful fall scenery as it cross over the buffalo river below. The sugar maples seem to surrounded this old bridge just for this picture perfect moment for a beautiful scene. This area is part of the Ozarks National Forest in Arkansas from some of the back roads along this scenic drive. Fall in arkansas was a real surprise as this year trees really puts on a show with some fantastic fall scenery and color that we never knew was so close to us. Our plan was to go to the Smoky mountains but the weather wasn’t working out so we reschedule for Arkansas and it did not disappoint us with great fall colors.

Texas Bluebonnets with Haybales at Sunset

We were lucky to capture this wonderful sunset over this field of Texas bluebonnets and Indian paintbrush with these hay bales with this great sun set colors of orange, and pinks in the sky in this rural setting wildflower 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.

Austin Lake Travis Oasis Sunset

We captured this panorama of an Austin Oasis restaurant and sunset at Lake Travis. The restaurant is located in far west Austin at the foothills of the Texas Hill Country on Lake Travis. The Oasis restaurant likes to promote itself as the “Sunset Capital of Texas” with it decks facing west for maximum sunset views. The restaurant sit on a bluff about 450 feet over the lake overlooking the big bowl at the lake. Lake Travis is part of the Highland lakes, after Mansfield dam was built in 1942 it became the largest reservoir for water storage creating the largest area of water where the Oasis overlook is. The Oasis restaurant is popular with locals and tourist and it not uncommon to find buses lined up in the parking lot. It has become a destination for people traveling in this area of the Hill Country to visit to capture a peak at the sunset. Most people who live in Austin will tell you The sunsets view from this location are great anytime of the year. The Oasis restaurant has been here for thirty years, but in 2005 a lightning fire destroyed parts of the structure but it was back in business about two weeks later over time the portion that had burn down was re-built and expanded for maximun sunset views. This Lake is one of the largest reservoir of water along the Highland lakes. http://www.beecreekphoto.com/blog/sunset-lake-travis/

This Lake is one of the largest reservoir of water along the Highland lakes. We have taken many sunset images from the Oasis on Lake Travis and this is my favorite.  Every scenic sunset image we have capture from here is unique and today was not the exception. The Oasis Restaurant sits on a bluff 450 feet over the lake has some of the best decks to view the sunsets around central Texas. Oasis restaurant has been here for thirty years over looking the big bowl at Lake Travis.  In 2005 a lightning strike cause parts of the restaurant to catch on fire and almost burn down completely.  Only parts of the restaurant were destroyed and it reopen a few weeks later but the older wooden part were eventually replaced with the newer buildings along with a parking garage.  This newer parts including shops, cafes, and other restaurants many of which have great views also.  In any case the Oasis is a great place to come and have a meal and margarita and watch the sunset on any day. Just another beautiful panorama sunset in the Texas hill country over looking Lake Travis. Lake Travis is loccated on the western edge of Austin at the foothills of the Texas Hill Country.  Lake Travis is the largest reservoir along the highland lakes in Texas is a very popular spot for swimming, boating, fishing, scuba diving, and picnicking.  

Sunset Over Lake Travis

Check out our latest capture of a Lake Travis sunset. This is another capture of this great sunset over Lake Travis. Today we had a full lake and nice sky right before the sunset and gave us this beautiful sky. The Lake was built as a reserve on the Colorado river which holds excess waters from flash floods. Lake Travis is the largest storage of water in the Highland Lakes. The reserve was built in 1942 after the construction of Mansfield dam near Austin by the Lower Colorado River Authority (LCRA). The lake goes from Austin upstream for 65 miles along the Colorado river. Lake Travis was not designed for recreation use but it is one of the most populars places to boat, swim, fish, picnicking, suba diving along with many other activities because of it clear waters. This area of Lake Travis is also a scenic location overlooking the big bowl of the lake. Tourist and locals come here to try and capture one of the spectacular sunsets. This area is located at the foothills of the Texas Hill Country near Austin and it is a great place to capture a piece of the Texas scenic landscape anytime of the year.

Lake Travis Sunset2 – Lake Travis sunset in the Texas Hill Country can be an awesome sight as the sun sets in the west and reflects back the oranges glow of the sky in the water. This image was taken a short time after the first similar one as the sunset was more intense. This lake is the most popular spot for people from Austin and other Texas cities to visit every summer. This lake is about 20 minutes from Austin and is a very popular location to come and watch the sunset, boating, swimming or whatever water activities you like. The water quality here is pretty good so in many places you have good visibility for snorkeling or diving.
