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.

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 sun was starting to set in the sky so we would lose the light over the waterfalls so had to work fast to capture this tranquil hill country scene at this secret oasis. 

Bluebonnet Sunset Through the Fence

Bluebonnet Sunset Through the Fence – A cedar wood fence with bluebonnets, and an oak tree at sunset make a nice texas Hill country landscape. The bluebonnet were growing in front of this wonderful old oak tree as the sunsets cast its ray through the cedar fence giving a hint of light over the wildflowers. This is what it looks like in the Texas hill country in springtime or we call it bluebonnet season. Spring is here and the bluebonnet is the first sign that it is here. We have traveled thousand of mile over the backroads of the hill country always searching for good locations and today we found another good spot for the perfect texas bluebonnet landscape. In Texas the lupine or bluebonnet along with other wildflowers start coming out in the southern part of the state around Feb and slowly move north through May. Then we have the summer Texas wildflowers that start popping up but most consider the bluebonnet as the main attraction if we can find other wildflowers that even better, but we gotta see the blue bonnets or we feel empty without it. In any case this was a great catch for a traditional texas bluebonnet landscape, its been a pretty good year so far but it fading fast in the hill country all good things must come to and end. Well at least till next year!

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.

Llano River Bridge Sunset Pano

Llano River Bridge Sunset Pano – The Llano bridge pano in the Texas Hill Country as the sunset in the west. 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. The Llano river has seen a lot of flooding over the years since it was built in 1930 and just recently another flood occured and the waters went to the bottom of the bridge but it withstood the stress but a bridge futher downstream in Kingsland collapsed from the October 2018 flood.

360 Bridge After Dark

360 Bridge After Dark – Austin 360 Bridge at dark with a little color still left in the sky from the sunset as the car trails cross the bridge. The 360 bridge is a popular spot to photograph the sunset but it is also a heavyily used road that why I did a long exposure to show how busy this road is as it is a connection from north to south of the city as the car trail show after dark not someplace to be at 5 pm if you can help it. This is on the edge of the Texas hill country near Austin with Lake Austin for boating, picnicing and other recreational activities so it is a popular place.

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.
