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!
Ozarks Covered Bridge in Fall – We came across this covered bridge in the back road of the Ozarks with it fall orange colors of the maples were on display next to the covered bridge that crossed over the Buffalo River. There is a mix of orange, reds, and green from the pine nearby to give this capture a cool fall vibe.The Buffalo River, located in Northern Arkansas, was the first National River to be designated in the United States. The Buffalo River is 153 miles long. In my neck of the woods you don’t come across these wonderful coverered bridges so it was a cool find. On the back roads of the national forest you come across so many different thing along with the added bonus of a bridge almost in the middle of nowhere in it nature state and still be used.
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.
