Roadside Wildflowers

Happy Friday – Wildflowers Along the Roadside from 2016 of texas wildflowers along the roadside.  Texas bluebonnets and indian paintbrush in the Texas hill country on a beautiful spring day. It was a fiesta of color along the roadside with bluebonnets and indian paintbrush in the hill country.  Texas bluebonnet are one of our favorite wildflowers and we look forward to capturing them every year. This was a great year for wildflowers you could find them in abundance all along the roads in the Texas Hill Country from the foot hills of west Austin to Mason.  We took these of the Texas wildflowers along this road in the hill country near Llano in 2016 and we come back every year hoping to sees then this lush again but so far no luck. Springtime in texas is a great time with all the natural wildflowers growing along the roads and into the pastures but not every year is the same.  It seems that the bluebonnet come back thicket every couple of years! We can all thank Lady Bird Johnson help in getting all these wonderful road side bluebonnets  and wildflowers along our Texas roads.

We took these bluebonnets and indian paintbrush wildflowers along the road out in the Texas Hill Country near Llano. Springtime in texas is a great time with all the natural wildflowers growing everywhere. We can all thank Lady Bird Johnson for her push to get the Highway Beautification Act which is why we have so many beautiful wildflowers every spring.

Texas Windmill and Bluebonnets 419

Texas Windmill and Bluebonnets –  This is just one of the many bluebonnets pictures we captured last year in the Texas Hill Country. We captured this great field of texas bluebonnets with a working windmill in the background.  Also in the background is this  lovely oak tree for a iconic texas scene. There are lot of windmills in Texas but finding them in a field of bluebonnets is not as common so we felt lucky today. The Texas hill country has it fair share of windmills, but most of the time they are near electric lines, or hidden behind trees are in a state of disrepair so today we are lucky. Today we found a nice windmill with a field of bluebonnets with a few clouds in the blue sky. This is the iconic Texas landscape scenery in the hill country in spring.  If we could of just gotten a longhorn it would of been perfect!

Today we found a nice one with a few clouds in the blue sky and nice field of wildflowers. This is the iconic Texas landscape scenery in the hill country in spring.

Santa Elena Canyon Path

Santa Elena Canyon Path – A little different view of Santa Elena Canyon from the pathway to the canyons as the mountains rise up it for an impressive view of the site. These two side of the canyons, one on the left is Mexico side and the other the US side allow the Rio Grande river to flow out of mountains and contiunue it journey downstream. This Texas landscape had a nice sky with some nice clouds and a path that led your eyes toward the canyon walls. To me the Santa Elena Canyon are one of the highlights of the Big Bend National park, to get there it is about an hour drive on the Ross Maxwell Scenic drive west through the Chiso Mountain when almost to the end of the road, there is an scenic overlook of the canyon landscape from here. But if you want explore more drive a little farther to the trail head where you can walk about 5 minutes along a board walk on sand to get to a beach area where the Rio Grande River flows out of the mouth of the canyons. If you like you can climb up the cliffs as there are several fairly accessable views points for some outstanding Texas scenery that are not too high or difficult to climb or stay below and enjoy the stunning view from below. The river is seldom too deep and in some cases you can walk quite a ways back into the canyons. We have landscape images from several views of this wonderful Texas scenery on our site so thanks for looking. beecreekphoto.com

Santa Elena Canyon Path –  Santa Elena Canyon in Big Bend National Park along the trail as the path leads to the canyon walls. It a short walk to reach the Rio Grande river but it takes a bit more to climb the steep walls of the canyon but it is only moderately difficult. It is a top location to visit for those who come to Big Bend National Park every year. The cliffs rise up 1500 feet from the Rio Grande river goes right down the middle with one side on the US and the other side of the canyon is on Mexico side.

Texas Hill Country Waterfalls

Texas Hill Country Waterfall – This is a hidden gem in the texas hill country with cascading waterfalls flowing into a blue green pool of water. We came to this beautiful scene as the excess rains had cause the springs to overflow and gave us these lovely blue geen pools of water over the rocky limestone in the 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 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!

Oak Tree and Texas Bluebonnets

Oak Tree and Texas Bluebonnets – A wonderful old oak tree among a field of texas bluebonnets down near Poteet Texas south of San Antonio late in the day as the sun sink lower in the sky. There were a lot of field of wildflowers in this area but most had been overtaken by the poppies. The poppies were introduced accidently about ten year ago we heard and unfortunely they have become invasive and in some place you will not see the wildflowers because the poppies have over taken over the areas. There were a few in this field but it was the best bluebonnets we saw since we were a little late to the party in this area. We like this field a lot and we took a few different shot from here. This image was just our beloved texas bluebonnets, an large oak tree, with sime mesquite tree along the fringes of the field with a few poppies mixed in on this ranch in south central area of the country for a nice Texas landscape. The texas bluebonnet is the state flower and begin with a small hard seed and over time the rain, wind will soften the seed so it can germinate in the fall and slowly over time it begins to take root and it bright green leave come out every spring usually from March to the end of April. That when it all begins and the flowers start to put on a spring show. No doubt that what happen in this great field of bluebonnets out south of San Antonio. We were lucky that they were allowed to grow in this field so we could capture this image. We look forward to the yearly show of bluebonnets that come out for such a short time.

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. 

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.
