Golden Glow over Bluebonnet Landscape Pano

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.
