Fall in the Texas Hill Country

Fall in the Texas Hill Country – Texas hill country landscape canvas and prints – This is the clear waters of the Frio River as it flow downstream from Garner State Park with the cypress trees and maple trees lining the river showing their fall color on this day. The sun was just at the right level to send it rays through this cypress tree and shine down into the river and show all the river rocks. Autumn in the Texas hill country is my favorite time of the year it can be colorful as the cypress turn this rusty shade of orange to red and the maple change from yellow to orange along the blue green waters of the Frio river in this texas landscape. In the background you can see Old Baldy from the other side of Garner State Park a favorite climbing spot for many to the area.

The water was running faster than normal after a storm the night before so I had to very carefully work my way out into the waters as they were flowing over the low water crossing just below my knees so there was little room for error.  My partner remind me to keep the camera out of the waters if I go in. You can see Old Baldy in the background a favorite climbing spot for many tourist to the area. 

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 Hill Country Blue Bonnets

Heavenly Texas Hill Country Blue Bonnets – Texas Wildflower Landscapes Canvas and Prints – Remembering this particular year of wildflowers I mean what could be better than the Texas hill country blue bonnets in spring and on this year with what seems to be endless field of flowers before you it hard to beat. Seeing this many bluebonnets in one place can bring out all kind of thing out in a photographer, its like your a kid in a candy store. Muleshoe Park which is an LCRA park along the Colorado river was overrun with bluebonnet wildflower on this particular spring. For us it meant several trips to try and capture these spectacular Texas Hill Country blue bonnetit before they were gone or at least before they were driven over and destroyed by all the cars,trucks and people who showed up for the wildflowers event. I think we arrived in the knick of time and capture this wonderful image just as the sun was setting over this field of bluebonnet wildflowers. Did not hurt that we were able to capture this wonderful sunset with it heavenly glow of orangse and pink colors in the sky with the Texas Hill Country and blue bonnets wildflowers for the perfect day. All you can see in this landscape is a field of endless bluebonnets wildflowers with the saltgrass growing along the bountries in Muleshoe Park. How this happen we are not sure but the area had been under drought condition this year and the water dropped leaving this area exposed again and I guess the seeds had washed into the lake and were sitting just waiting for some sunlight so some good can come out of a drought, who knew. This year was by far the best field of bluebonnets I have ever seen and unfortunately the second year this area at the park did not come back with bluebonnets, but the other side still of the park had enough flowers to satisfiy most. These bluebonnets only lasted till the drought lifted and then they were again covered by waters of the Colorado river and gone. They have never come back like this since only small patches along the waters edge. In my opnion this years crop of bluebonnet which was only around for two year was and is the Best Images of Texas Hill Country Bluebonnets we have ever had the opportunity to photograph. I might be a little bias.

This image of what seems to be endless field of Texas Hill Country blue bonnets was located at a LCRA park along the Colorado river. We were a drought stage and that meant that the waster was way down leaving way for these bluebonnets to come to life. How lucky is that! As the sunset began it created this wonderful orange and pink colors in the sky with this heavenly glow over this field of Texas Hill country blue bonnets wildflowers.  All you can see is a landscape of a field of bluebonnets wildflowers with some saltgrass growing along the bountries in Muleshoe Park. How this happen we are not sure but the area had been under drought condition this year and the water dropped leaving this area exposed again and the seeds somehow were on the bottom of the lake area and this is what happen so some good can come out of a drought.

Texas Hill Country Wildflower Landscape

Texas Hill Country Wildflower Landscape – Texas Wildflowers Landscape on Canvas, Metal, or Prints –
A field of firewheels or indian blanket wildflowers as far as the eye can see in the Texas Hill country. We lucked upon this field of wildflowers as we were on a road trip into the hill country to capture river images. However getting off track presented us with this endless field of beautiful indian blankets wildflowers with this great tree. The firewheel another name for the indian blanket is an annual flowering plant that blooms through May through August in Texas. The flower can be red with yellow on the tips to completely red. They get their name because they seem to form a blanket over the landscape. They grow up to two feet high and are very drought tolerant so they can hang around in the hottest and driest terrain, if they have enough water and the right soil they can pop up all summer. This field of texas wildflowers seem to be endless. We went back a week later hoping to take some more photos and they were pretty much already going to seed so glad we capture this while there.

The guadalupe river run from Kerr county to the gulf of mexico. The upper part of the river is mostly smaller faster streams with bank of limestone usually lined with Pecan trees or bald cypress. The lower part begins at the Canyon Dam and run through New Braunfel where even more rafting takes place then down to the coast to San Anotonio Bay. The water flow is controled by Canyon Dam depending on the amount of rain it has received.

Texas Hill Country Sunset Panorama

Texas Hill Country Sunset Panorama –
Texas hill country sunset panorama along the Pedernales river landscape. The sun was just setting and back lit these clouds which were reflected nicely into the water along the river. The pedernales river is a tributary of the Colorado river and flows approximately 106 miles through the heart of the Central Texas region. The river flow through the hill country from springs near Kimble County east through Fredericksburg, Blanco County, Stonewall, LBJ Ranch, Johnson City, and continues it flow into Lake Travis on the west side of Travis County in Central Texas. Pedernales watershed represents the diverse culture, hydrology and landscape of much of the greater Hill Country region. Also along the river many species of birds live including the federally endangered black-capped vireo and golden cheeked warbler along with the Pedernales spring salamander. Today we​ got some nice colors in the sky as the sun set through the trees along the banks of the Pedernales river a gem in the heart of the hill country in this rural landscape scene.

Bluebonnets at the Farmhouse

Another capture of the bluebonnets farmhouse in Marble Falls in the Texas Hill Country. The Texas lupine or bluebonnet is one of the most popular things to see in the spring time in Texas. People come from all over to enjoy these colorful wildflowers. However ever year is not the bumper crop we expect some year depending on the amount of rain we get in the fall determines what we get in the spring. We have seen bumper crops of wildflowers some year which have been beyond our expectations other years not so much. I wanted to post this image because I have reason to believe this might be the last year we will see bluebonnets at this old farmhouse. This place has drawn photographers from all around both amature and pros to this spot because of it uniqeness with the old farm house and rusting farm equipment place just so in the front of the place. In 1971 the Texas Legislature declare all bluebonnets in the state to be the state flower. Also around this time Lady Bird Johnson had help push the Texas Highway Beautification Act so that we would continue to see all these wonderful wildflowers along our roads and highways. Thats what make springtime in the Hill country special.

This was the last year we will see bluebonnets from here so wanted to make sure we got them out.

Bluebonnet and Mesquite Sunset

Bluebonnets with mesquite makes for a very Texas Hill Country look since ever spring wildflowers bloom among the mesquite and cactus. Theres a reason they are so special even our Legislature felt the need to declare the bluebonnet or Lupine the state flower of texas. In this image we were able to capture the sun rays through the mesquite tree over this field of bluebonnet wildflowers in the Texas Hill Country for a scenic landscape. The Texas bluebonnet or lupine were declared the state flower by the Texas legislature in 1971 that along with the Lady Bird Johnson Highway Beautification Act have helped the wildflowers in the southwestern United State become a favorite thing to see every spring. People come from all over to see them and enjoy these wonderful wildflowers. It has become a ritural to search for these wonderful field of flowers every spring. Many bring their children, their dogs, their favorite items to put in the wildflowers to be photographed. We have seen boots, high heels, cowboy hats and stuffed toys.

Texas Sunrise Bluebonnet Field

Bluebonnet Sunrise Along the River

Bluebonnet sunrise along the river just as the sun ray pop over the horizon to wish us good morning. The Texas bluebonnet is the most popular wildflower as people come from long way off just to see them. I have met people who traveled from California who came to see the bluebonnets here. Of course not all years are great it has to do with the fall rains not enough and these hardy plants may not show their best, but just wait a year and maybe the next year will do it. In any case the Texas bluebonnet is still the most popular wildflower people have festival for them, name their towns as the bluebonnet capital so who are we to question them. We loved the tranquility of this image with the sunrise over the water and a nice field of bluebonnets with a tents along the river edge. Spring time in the Texas hill country can be magicali f your in the right place and it bluebonnet season. Lady Bird started this with her Highway Beautification Act and we are so happy she did!

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.

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.

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.

Texas Bluebonnet growing along side of a dirt road at Muleshoe park with this colorful sunset sky along the Colorado river with salt grass growing as it only boundaries. It was just endless wildflowers growing up to the salt grass then it would continue on the other side. This was the larges field of bluebonnets I had ever seen but it only lasted for two short years as soon as the lake came back up the bluebonnet were no more. We needed the water but it something we will never see again unless we have another drought and the seeds are still there.

This is a panorama bluebonnet landscape we took of a wonderful field of bluebonnet at Muleshoe at sunset along the Colorado river outside of Austin TX. You can see the nice sky with a big orange and yellow sun casting it glow over the landscape with nothing but endless blue bonnets as far as the eye can see. The lake has been down for years but the following year the lake levels increase back to normal so the bluebonnets area in these photos are now under water.  These increadible Texas fields of blue bonnet were short lived but they were a site to see when they were here at least for a few years.  We were extremely lucky to have been there to capture these fields of bluebonnet or blue bells as many call them.
