Big Bend Bluebonnets Sunrise

Big Bend Bluebonnets Sunrise - The sun was just beginning to push through the clouds over the chisos mountain range near the landmark Cerro Castellan with these fragrant big bend bluebonnets on the ledge for this west texas landscape at sunrise. 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 to 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 howl right below us when a sudden sense of fear over came us 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. We had heard about this, but never seen much in the way of flowers even though we have been coming here for 10 years. This was the best year we have seen in our 10 plus years of coming to Big Bend during this time of year! I am guessing that they had better precipitation than in the past years as this area has been in drought for years. In any case we were excited to find them but we got here just in time as they are already going to seed in some places. 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 show.

Canvas wrap

Canvas wraps are printed on white archival poly-cotton blend matte canvas. The canvas is wrapped on a 1.5" stretcher framed and finished with a durable black backing. The gallery wrap arrives at your doorstep ready to hang. After an order is submitted, the canvas usually arrives within 5-6 business days. While canvas wraps are more expensive, there is no need for matting and framing. After a fine art print is matted and framed, the cost is often equivalent or even slightly more than a canvas wrap.
