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.

Texas Bluebonnets and Hay bales Landscape – The morning light kiss this field of hay bales with Texas bluebonnets and 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 haybales with Texas blueblonnets through out this season or any before, it was a sight to see and the farmer gave us special permission to come on his property and photograph them which was even better. Cant get better than this when it comes to Texas wildflowers with a rural texas setting in spring time.

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.

Bluebonnet Sunset – We captured this gorgeous sunset landscape with the bluebonnets one evening while at a county park along the Colorado river in Texas. The colors of the sky that came out with the sunset were beautiful with the oranges, pinks and reds. Couldn’t ask for a better sunset over the Texas wildflowers along the waters edge.

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.
