Texas Hill Country River Sunset Pano

Texas Hill Country River Sunset Pano – The sun was just setting and back lit these clouds which were reflected nicely into the water along the river. The Texas river is a tributary of the Colorado river and flows approximately 106 miles into Central Texas region. The river flow through the hill country from springs near Kimble County east through Fredericksburg through Blanco County through Stonewall, Johnson City, and continues it flow into Lake Travis on the west side of Travis County in Central Texas. We capture this right at sunset and got some nice colors in the sky which was reflected in the waters. There are some moments when the beauty of the hill country really shine through and that is as the sun sets in the west or as the sunrises in the east.  If you have a body or water, rivers or some hills it can be a magical landscape image. Texas scenery has lots of variety it can go from the desert landscape to the  swamps of east Texas, or mountains of big bend to the farmland in the heart of the state. No matter where you go the scenery will change to something new and exciting.

Golden Glow over Bluebonnet Landscape Pano : Prints Available

Golden Glow over Bluebonnet Landscape Pano – Texas Wildflowers – We have been hoping that this farmland in the Texas hill country bluebonnets would come back and this year we got lucky. We capture several images of this field of bluebonnets in a panorama right before sunset which created this nice golden glow over the wildflowers. We came here several times as we never know when or if this bluebonnet landscape will come back again. We spoke with the property owner who was happy we appreciated the wildflowers as much as she did. This was a hugh field of texas bluebonnets in the hill country probably the biggest field of wildflowers in years. Even though the rest of the hill country was only so so this year this field came back after several years of no flowers. Some say bluebonnets or lupines come back every couple of years, but we have seen some field never come back but this year we got lucky. These are some of our favorite field of wildflowers landscapes to capture, the texas bluebonnets in the back roads of the Texas. The bluebonnet is native to the area and the state flower of Texas. All bluebonnets are the state flower but the one we capture the most is the Lupinus texensis. This wildflower has the blue colored pea shaped leaves with the white top which have been planted along the roads by the highway dept. since the days of Lady Bird when she promoted native wildflowers in Texas. Sometimes the bluebonnets will have a violet to purple tint depending on the suns angle in this you see the color change because of the low angle of the sun over this field.

Texas Bluebonnets at the Lake Sunset Pano – We love this twilight after the sunset went down over this wonderful field of bluebonnets and with this colorful pink and orange sky. We came to this location along the water several times to capture both sunrise and sunset of these wonderful bluebonnet wildflowers at the lake edge. Capturing good bluebonnets is a matter of luck many times and we were lucky that this area had bluebonnet wildflowers again after the lake went back down which allowed them to come back so we took many photos from here. We like this little leafless tree that was positioned along the waters edge and decided to use it in our capture. The Texas hill country dry river bed came back to life this year after the waters went down along the colorado river and this field of bluebonnets popped up. It was delightful to see the field of wildflowers again not as much as the first time years ago, but still wonderful. Spring time in the Texas hill country can be magical when fields of wildflowers appear in great numbers. We live not far from here so we came here many times till word got out and the bluebonnet got trampled down. The texas hill country has been one of the best places to capture pictures of bluebonnets landscapes in the past and we can only hope forever. Taking pictures of bluebonnets is one of our favorite things to capture. There are many varieties of bluebonnets in Texas from the chiso bluebonnet, to the sandyland and of course the Lupinus texensis lupine, has been the state flower since the 1901 and all other bluebonnets were included in 1971 by the Texas Legislature which made all lupines in the state the state flower. For most the most popular is the Lupinus texensis or texas bluebonnet which are here in the hill country which range in color from blue to violet shade depending on the light also the texas hill bluebonnets have the white tops which are known is said to look like a bonnet.

Sunrise Glow Over Lake Bluebonnets – This wonderful landscape field of bluebonnet wildflowers was a site to see this spring. Over this bluebonnet season we came to this area over five times to catch sunrises and sunsets. This area is the beginning of the Texas hill country and we drive a good distance trying to find an capturing good field of bluebonnets images which can be a lot of luck and a lot of driving. I don’t know how many miles we put on our vehicle every spring trying to find nice field of bluebonnets or other wildflowers. When you find a location with lots of wildflowers, it is especially hard when everyone can get in them because they get trampled so fast so you have to find them fast and get your photo before they get too trampled. This year we did get to this area before it got too overrun and capture several good images ofthe masses got here to capture this sunrise over the lake. Really this is part of the Colorado river chain in the Texas Hill Country but a lot refer to it as the lake. This park had a bumper crop of bluebonnets several years ago after a drought exposed the field to the light of day. Now we again had a drought and the field is again exposed so many bluebonnets came back but nothing like it had been years ago, but still still a nice bunch of wildflowers in one place. So we set out to capture the sunrise over the lake and this morning gave us a nice glow just as the sun rays broke the surface of the Texas hill country.

Sunset Over the Bluebonnets Pano – Another capture of the field of bluebonnets panorama after the sunset and brought up these nice colors of pinks and orange in the sky. We had moved to a different site when the colors from the earlier sunset appeared in the sky. We had been photographing nearby when we saw the colors and turn our camera that way where the road curved around the bend at the lake. The Texas hill country dry river bed came back to life this year after the waters went down along the colorado river and this field of bluebonnets popped up.

Red Poppies at the Fence Pano – We love this house with it fence and a row of red corn poppies in front. We captured this in front of this small stone house as we were leaving in a panorama. We like the fence and red poppies in front so that where we wanted to focus the image. Poppies are a popular flower to be grown in gardens as well in the wild they grow best somewhere between the end of March and through the end of April in the spring time. The red poppy flower also can be called the corn rose, field poppy, flanders poppy, red poppy, red weed. I suppose they get out of hand just like the white poppies in the hill country.

Red Poppy Landscape – A lovely tree and a field of red poppies with a blue sky and nice clouds what could be better. Spring time in the Texas hill country offers up lots of wildflower landscape opportunities rather it be in the wild or planted. We capture this at the seed farm out side Fredrickburg Texas with this field great red corn poppies field. Red Corn poppies can be found as wildflowers or planted in flower beds. It always great to find them no matter where they grow. A litte added benefit was behind this field of wildflowers was the vineyard that grow the grapes for the winerys in this area.

Hill Country Rest Stop at Sunset – We captured this hill country rest stop right at sunset. This rest stop in the Texas hill country was a suprise as it was a new one along our travels in the hills. It had this lovely tree with some nice looking yuccas and picnic table all to make your rest pleasant. We love that we captured the sunset through the nice live oak tree. Live oaks do not drop their leaves in the winter and this highway rest stop in the hill country had a lot of great live oak trees. The hill country has some wonderful scenery if you know where to find it. We have travel this area for many years chasing wildflowers and fall colors but this time it was the sunset that got our attention.

Edisto Island Dirt Road Charleston SC – A wonderful dark brooding dirt road going toward Botany Bay at edisto island as the sun filters through the trees. The light and shadow are intense to the point of very little light filtering though the trees that what we like about it. It a tree tunnel with a sense of magical mystery as the tree branches hang low over the road with shadow and some light filtering through the trees. These tree tunnels in the deep south are nature taking back the forest. I call it tree or forest art because they can hauntingly beautiful.

Texas Wildflowers Along the Fence

Texas Wildflowers Along the Fence – A field of Texas wildflowers along the fence in the hill country. The Texas hill country has some of the best wildflowers that appear from March through late summer. The indian blankets are some some of my favorite because they do seem to create a blanket effect over this area. The indian blanket or mexican hats grow to about two feet tall which allows them to be above the grasses.  There are a mix of indian blankets and some yellow wildflowers that appear to be part of the aster family maybe bear foot. In any case Texas has some of the best spring wildflower in a natural landscape around.

Best Texas Bluebonnets Images for 2019

Bluebonnets in the Texas Hill Country – We came across this lush field of bluebonnets in the Texas Hill Country on a ranch off of hwy 71 west of Austin. 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. These are texas bluebonnets that grow through out the state but the hill country has some of the best when its a good year.

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 end.

Hill Country Texas Bluebonnets  – We captured these wonderful texas bluebonnets west of Marble Falls in the Texas hill country. We pretty much thought that the bluebonnets were done for the season last year when a rain a few days before 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 bluebonnets 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. Also a small rusty post was in the ground and hanging from it was this horse shoe I guess it for good luck since we found this spot we felt like we had good luck too. To see more pictures of bluebonnets please visit our gallery on our website. beecreekphoto.com

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 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.

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. This was the best year we have seen in our 10 plus years of coming here. The Big Bend bluebonnet or Chisos bluebonnet are the common name of this lupine. It is native to Texas and Chihuahua, where it can be found blooming from January through June. What surprised us were they were all over the hill sides and along the roads in thick patches. We were curious how they got so high up on the mountain sides. In any case it was a wonderful site to see and made us glad we came for this unique site.

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.

The bluebonnet were growing in front of this wonderful old oak tree as the sunsets cast its golden ray through the fence giving a hint of light over the wildflowers. 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!

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.

Best Coastal Photos from the South

Check out some of the Best Coastal Landscape Photos from the Georgia Coast and Pensacola Florida. These are just a few images of our travels to Georgia and Florida.  We captured these images along the Georgia coast at Jekyll Island Driftwood Beach, St. Simon Island and Pensacola Beach in Florida.

Driftwood Beach – On Jekyll Island in Georgia you find these wonderful beaches with these dead trees that somehow have managed to stay upright in the sands. What was neat was this beach looked like some foreign landscape with all the driftwood and the deadwood trees upright. it was kind of like you were on a different planet. Jekyll island has one section callled driftwood beach with these fabulous dead trees as the tide rolls in they are part of the ocean landscape. We did long exposures on several shot so that the water would get this smooth texture. There isn’t a lot of surf here so that helps. Before sunrise we made our way to the beach but the water greeted us almost as soon as we step on the beach. Yes the tide had come in. We took photos in the water but our tripod kept sinking which made it difficult sometimes. We like the way this capture the gnarly twisted tree with the deadwood at it base and the surf swirling around the tree. The sky was just lightingin up on Jekyll island at the driftwood beach when we got there and the color was just starting to show for the morning sunrise. Driftwood beach was why we came here we had seen some wonderful images and wanted to come and take some ourselves but four days is not enough. Jekyll island is part of the Golden Isles barrier islands on the Alantic Coast of Georgia. The barrier islands are Jekyll island, St. Simon island, Little St. Simon island, Sea Island, and Brunswic Georgia. This area is known for its driftwood beach and salt marshes.

Colorful Sunrise at Driftwood Beach – Jekyll Island driftwood beach with trees in the sand at sunrise. It was a beautiful morning sunrise with these fablous trees that seem to magicly grow from the sands along driftwood beach at Jekyll island. This has been a location we have wanted to go to for some time now. Driftwood beach or boneyard beach as some have coined the phase because of all the trees and limbs that seem to magically grow from the sands along the beach in this tree graveyard. This view of this tree at sunrise looks out over the Altantic Ocean something we never get to see. This old deadwoodtree that is still planted in the sand gave some nice reflections along the wet sand at sunrise reflecting back the wonderful colors from the sky. Jekyll island is part of the Golden Isles of the Gerogia coast. The island gets its name from a short-lived Yamassee Indian village known as San Simon, which was established near Fort Frederica during the late 1660s to 1684. The English shorten the name later.

Driftwood Beach B W – Sunrise on Driftwood beach at Jekyll island was a spectacular site on the early morning at the beach in black and white. I love this image in black and white with only the driftwood, morning surf as the tide came in with the sunrise as it rays shoot into the sky through the clouds. It was difficult because the water was up to our knees and our tripods kept sinking in the wet sand but in the end we go the image. We have been wanting to come to Jekyll island to see the driftwood beach or boneyard beach as some call it for all the dead driftwood that wash up on the beach. There are many pieces of dead driftwood just laying around on the beach some were full grown dead trees and some just limbs and other pieces of deadwood. I think the most interesting part was the trees that were dead but were still standing upright and would be pounded daily as the surf and tide would flow in and out yet they still managed to stand. We did a long exposure to capture the surf as the tide came in creating this soft smooth surface over the water. It was difficult because the water was up to our knees and our tripods kept sinking in the wet sand but in the end we got the image. It was a lovely morning except for the midge flies biting. Evidently they don’t mind Off! They call this area the Golden Isles barrier island and jekyll is just part of this group of barrier islands in the Alantic coast. We hope that these dead trees can hang on for a long time in this unique beach landscape on Jekyll Island Georgia.

Ocean Serenity – This wonderful seascape taken in early morning right after sunrise presented a nice golden glow over the blue ocean. We had been taking image of the driftwood and this presented itself with these gentle blue waves as the tide was going back out along the beach made for a nice beach scene. This is an image with mostly a waterscape along the beach with the ocean waves as they gently roll in shortly after sunrise for this tranquil, serene beach scene for a nice waterscape along the georgia coast. This area of Georgia is known as the golden isles which is a group of barrier island on the alantic ocean which include Jeklly island, St. Simons island, and several others.

Jekyll Island Marshland Sunset – We captured these wonderful marshland of Jekyll Island just as the sunset in the distance. We love the way these marsh create these tributaries though out. As the sun went down things got even better as the sun reflected back into the waters below. As we came into Jekyll Island area we noticed these wonderful marshlands on the way in and thought they were lovely and said we should photograph them and I am glad we did. Now we find that the area gets it name from these salt marshs as they change to a golden color during the colder season of the year. Also without these marsh wetlands there would be no shrimp industry here. So they are very important to ecosystem in the area.

St. Simon Island is part of the Golden Isles barrier island and this village of around 12,000 inhabitants was very scenic place. It has it all the ocean, palms, sunrise, sunset, views, not to mention the lighthouse museum, the quaint town area with shops, restaurants right there along the alantic coast. What could be better. I had read that it was named the most romantic place to visit in Georgia. Now recently it received a lot of attention as a cargo ship capsized here which just created a frenzie to the St. Simon Pier to see the ship and watch the sunset there. You can see the ship which has been move on ground to be dis-assemble at the St. Simon Pier.

Scenic Fall Frio River

Scenic Fall Frio River – We captured this scenic fall frio river on one of our many trips this year into the hill country to capture the autumn season in Garner State Park and nearby areas. The image of the bald cypress which were turning different shades of orange, to rusty red color for the fall season and gave some nice reflections in the water we thought gave the feeling of serenity. I think this is one of my many favorites fall landscape from here from this location in the texas hill country, This fall landscape image of these wonderful cypress tree was the winning part of this image. In the Texas hill country. we don’t have a big fall season, but this year turn out very nice for the Texas Hill country. It is alway dependent on weather condition not being too hot or dry then we can get see some nice autumn colors in the area. In Texas we go from drought to floods not to mention the temperature can affect the color changes. So if our summers not too bad and we get a little more rain then we can see some fall colors changes on some years. If not then the leave will fall off before they change colors. Always a delicate dance with mother nature. Luckily for us this year looks like we are getting some nice color. Getting to the park when it open was the best time to capture the best light. The light was soft, and with no wind the water was still and we captured some excellent reflections of the bald cypress up the Frio River in the Garner with nice blue skies and whispy clouds. Cypress trees turn a golden shade and then turn a rusty red right before they go brown and fall off. Garner State Park is a popular park and it visited year round by many people in some cases they close the park before noon for day visiters especially in the summer time because as usual it is loved to death. Still it worth a visit to the Texas Hill country no matter what time of year it is.

So I got my bathing suit on and waded into the cold Frio river to capture this image it was in the 40s, I got a few looks but hey it the best way to capture the shot. The light was soft, and with no wind the water was still and we captured some excellent reflections of the bald cypress up the Frio River in the Garner with nice blue skies and whispy clouds.

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.
