Rio Grande Thru Santa Elena

Rio Grande Thru Santa Elena – This view from inside the Santa Elena canyon was spectacular with the water reflections of the cliff from above with the blue sky reflecting back into the water it was awesome sight. The Rio Grande thru Santa Elena Canyon is located in Big Bend National Park and the canyon walls are 1500 feet high. As you drive up to the area from the Ross Maxwell Scenic drive it seems like it just around the corner because they are so massive they can be seen from quite a distance. In any case climbing the cliffs to get to this area was worth the effort it was amazing geology and the rio grande flowing only so slightly on this day allow some great reflections in river. Many people come to canoe through the canyons putting in upstream at Lajitas and taking the 13 mile ride to Santa Elena Canyons to see our the natural beauty of the area. This Santa Elena Canyons are spit down the middle with the cliffs on each side being owned by the USA and Mexico. The canoe trip I have been told has some class four rapids at certain water levels so check it out before hand or you can always take a day trip call the boomerage up the river and back.

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.

Best Texas Bluebonnets Images for 2019

Bluebonnets in the Texas Hil Country – We came across this lush field of bluebonnets in the Texas Hill Country on a ranch off of hwy 71 west of Austin.

These are texas bluebonnets 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 this years crop in the Texas hill country has been a pleasant surprise so far this year. 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.

Poppies and Texas Bluebonnets – Poppies and Texas bluebonnets in the Texas hill country in late affternonn. We love this lone stalk of poppies with a backdrop of a field of texas bluebonnets on this ranch road. You can see the shadows as they cross over the field of bluebonnets with some bob wire and a horse shoe hanging on a post near by. Hanging the horse shoe on the post is suppose to mean good luck. So heres to having more good luck finding more texas wildflowers before the season ends

Bluebonnet Country Road – Bluebonnets line the road in this Texas hill country backroad with this natural wildflowers. Today we had a nice blue sky as the sun was getting lower in the west. You can see the texas lupine in most areas of the state but the hill country give you the more rugged natural backroads to see them on which is my preference. Spring is finally here as the trees are finally starting to bud in the texas hill country along with these beautiful wildflowers.

Longhorn Close Up in Wildflowers – Texas wildflower and a Longhorn close up in the Texas hill country. We were driving the back roads and there was this small herd near Johnson City in a area with bluebonnets and indian paintbrush and this steer came in close to get a better look at us thankfully he was in the wildflowers. This longhorn seem slightly interested in what we were doing and wanted to get a better look before he meander away as all the other had done before him but he did posed for a few shots first standing in these texas lupines and paintbrush wildflowers.

As they all did after a short time he was moving on for greener grass away from our pesky camera. I think he was looking for a little cow candy but we didn’t have any so he lost interest pretty quick. We have come to love these longhorn cattle with these big impressive horns and when we can capture them in a field of texas wildflowers it is even better.

Big Bend Bluebonnets with Mule Ear – Big Bend bluebonnets with an octillo and shrubs with Mule Ear in the back ground.

Big Bend Bluebonnets at Cerro Castillian – Bluebonnets at the base of the Cerro Castillian in Big Bend National Park. You can see the big bend bluebonnets are going up the slopes of this mountain side and we love this nice patch standing tall right in front. Big bend is a favorite park to visit and capture the wonderful vistas but this year with the wildflowers it is most memorable crop of big bend bluebonnets we have ever seen. We had a wet fall which most contribute to this abundant wildflowers in well over ten years. The big bend bluebonnet is a taller species of texas lupine and a lot hardier to be able to take the extreme conditions. Lupinus havardii is a species of lupine known by the common names Big Bend bluebonnet and Chisos bluebonnet which are native to Big Bend and the Chihuahua desert area of texas but it only grows in this region. Big Bend is in far west texas and border Mexico so from central texas it is a good seven hour drive just to capture these great pics of texas.

Big Bend Bluebonnets – Big Bend bluebonnets panorama in Big bend National Park as the wildflowers climb up the mountain sides. The bluebonnets on this ridge had the Santa Elena Canyon and Cerro Castillian as the distant landscape. There is nothing like a mountain back drop for your bluebonnet images. Texas Bluebonnets were thick on the mountian sides off the ross maxwell scenic drive so we stopped to get some roadside photos and the next thing we know we have walk a mile up the mountain side. It was one of those moments when you look in another direction and there are even more blueboonets on another hill side or along a ridge that you just have to get too. It was an amazing site.

There is just something about being in the presents of mountaiin and desert landscape and throw in some bluebonnets and it brings the kid out in you it is kind of a magical event. This species of lupine grows taller than other texas bluebonnets they are several feet tall and there stems and seeds are much larger than other bluebonnet plants. Some of the comman name for these bluebonnet are the big bend bluebonnet, big bend lupine, chiso bluebonnet, and havard bluebonnet to name a few. Regardless of what you call them they are a wonderful site to see in this desert landscape. We have heard about how great these bluebonnets have been in the past but this is the first time in ten years we have seen them like this. In the past we only found a few in small patches along the roads. We are glad we made the eight hour drive down to catch them before they are gone.

Big Bend Bluebonnets Sunrise – The sunrise was just beginning to push through the clouds over the chiso mountain range near the landmark Cerro Castellan. The sky was getting this heavenly glow from the sun rays as they came through the sky just at the peak of the sun rising up. The Texas bluebonnets were flowing down the slope the valley below in this desert landscape scene. It was a cold morning to be standing and waiting for the sunrise to show and very quite till a coyotes pack began to yelp and howing right below us when a sudden sense of fear over came my other half as there were many yelps, all probably no more than 30 feet below us. Luckily for us they were not interested in us. Whew! This is a wild area and you are likely to run across all kinds of animals here including bear, wild hogs and mountain lions. Big Bend National Park was in full bloom with the big bend bluebonnets this year and it was lovely.

Texas Windmill and Bluebonnets 419 – We capture this great field of texa bluebonnets with a wind mill in the background and this nice 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. 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 from years of storms and high winds not in a field of bluebonnets so today we are lucky.. 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. If we could of just got a longhorn it would of been perfect.

Spring is here and the bluebonnet is the first sign that it is here. We have traveled 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 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 wildflower that start popping up but most consider the bluebonnet as the main attraction if we can find other flowers thats 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, It been a pretty good year but it fading fast in the hill country all good things must come to and end. Well at least till next year!

 

Bluebonnet Sunset Landscape Pano – We came back here the next day and waited around for sunset to capture this image of this texas bluebonnet field in the Texas Hill Country in a panorama. The sunset was going down in the sky it create this violet pink colors across the sky over this lush field of bluebonnets for a great landscape scene from the texas hill country. This ranch with these texas bluebonnets just erupted when we were beginning to think the bluebonnet season was pretty much over in the Texas Hill country after a couple days of rain it just show up. So this wonderful field of texas wildflower with a sprinkling of indian paintbrush and poppies and of course mesquite growing along with the bluebonnet

Also note a rusted post with the horse shoe hanging on it, I suppose for good luck. Texans love their texas bluebonnets or lupines and this field is why we can’t get enough of them. They pop up year after year but not always in the same spot it kind of like a treasure hunt every year.

Flying Pegasus and Reunion Tower BW

Flying Pegasus and Reunion Tower BW- We captured these  two iconic landmark features of downtown Dallas the Flying Pegasus and Reunion Tower in black and white. The Flying Pegasus sit on top of a oil derick in front of the Omni hotel in downtown Dallas. This Pegasus had been on top of the Magnolia Hotel for more than half of a century till it was so rusted and  damaged that it had to be taken down. The city of Dallas replace it with a new pegasus on top of the building for a cost of around 600,000. The orginal pegaus sat in a warehouse for years until a group of nostagic people came together and started the process of bringing it back to life, this city of dallas artistans came together and started to help bring it back.  It was no small feat as no one seem to know where it was at first.  Finally the orginal pegasus was found and then it needed a home and it was placed on an oil derrick in front of the Omni Hotel in downtown Dallas.  From this location you can see two landmark for the city of Dallas with the Flying Pegasus and the Reunion Tower in view.

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.

Milky Way Over Haybales – The Texas Hill country can be a great place to capture the milky way over some haybales west of Llano where the skys are a little darker. Only a few times a year can the milkyway can be seen from this angle so we took advantage of the bales of hay for the evening capture. Even still this area has some light pollution but not like some other places. The milkyway is the galaxy that contains our solar system. It is not alway easy to see the stars or the milky way because of light pollution in our area so we travel west where there is less pollution, but to get really dark skies you have to go to Big Bend area in Texas. For us this time it was not possible to go there, but we were able to capture the milky way out west past Llano Texas. We alway like to have something in our images that has meaning that shows a sense of place to our images. We came across this simple traditional Texas scene of haybales in a field at a ranch in the Texas Hill Country west of Llano Texas and like the look. We like this field of haybales with the backdrop of the milky way in the view what could be better. In this image we allowed the cars to light paint the haybales so we could bring it out better in the image. Every starry nightscape in the Texas Hill country we have photographed has some light pollution however when we are photographying it appears pitch black. Even in this photo you can see some light pollution creeping in but the awesome milkyway over rides a little light pollution in this Texas night skies image with the milkyway clearly in view.

Texas Hill Country Waterfall 2 – We came to this beautiful scene as the springs had created these 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 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. 

Sunrise Under the Pier

Sunrise Under the Pier – We had started working our way down the Texas Coast beach in Port Aransas early morning before sunrise and just as the sun was slightly above the horizon we shot this one and loved the look of the underside of the Caldwell Pier. Today the sunrise under the pier was just peeking above the horizon reflecting off the clouds and surf below as it gently rolled in carry some sea weed with the morning light for a nice coastal scene. The sun light was also reflecting off the water and wet sand which reflected the sunrise colors back under the pier to make for a pretty texas coastal landscape scene. The texas coast is located in the gulf of mexico and Port A has about 18 miles of beach with plenty to do from sport fishing, parasailing, swimming, surfing, birding, and many other event on the island to keep you from getting board. Just to get to the island can require a ferry ride to get to the island or you can come around the long way as we call it through Corpus Christi maybe a thirty drive down the shoreline of mustang island.

Sunrise Under The Pier – We had started working our way down the beach in Port Aransas this early morning before sunrise and just as the sun was slightly above the horizon we shot this one and loved the look of the underside of the Texas Caldwell Pier. Ths  sunrise under the pier was just peeking over the horizon with morning light reflecting off the surf and sand as it gently rolled in carry some sea weed onto the sandy beach to make for a pretty coastal landscape scene from under the pier. This Texas pier at sunrise is what I think of when I think about the beach here in Port A. D82-0840 .

Texas Bluebonnet Sunset Landscape Vertical

Texas Bluebonnet Sunset Landscape Vertical – Texas bluebonnets in the hill country with cactus, a windmill, and a sunset on one of the many back roads we traveled over the last six weeks is a great last minute find. It is always a delight when we can find a nice field of texas bluebonnet wildflowers with prickly pear cactus and a windmill with a great sunset in the sky for that traditional Texas Hill country landscape. This is the iconic Texas scenery in the hill country that we have come to expect. The blue bonnet season is coming to an end for the bluebonnets in the hill country but just around the corner is the other wildflowers that should be popping up shortly to take it place.
