Bluebonnets In Texas

2015.04.16

Old Glory behind a field of bluebonnets.

I've shot this scene before but only the fence and bluebonnets. I decided to try from across the road and up the hill a little way.

Nice pond behind the bluebonnets with a diving platform on the near side. Looks like a great place to spend a Sunday afternoon either swimming or fishing.

The road leads to b a beautiful country house but what I liked is just the small bunch of bluebonnets. If they had covered both sides of the road I think they would have been overpowering.
pixel
This one I did not understand. This fire plug was really out in the middle of nowhere fronted by a nice patch of bluebonnets. It was surrounded by a bunch of prickly vines too.
pixel
Whatever floats your boat. This fence kept several horses from crossing into another field. The bluebonnets just highlighted the fence.
pixel
Two shots of these horses. One with the rear white one facing me instead of looking off to the side.

I waited around for about fifteen minutes for this donkey to face me but I guess we'll all have to be satisfied with with the ass.
pixel
These bluebonnets were partially sheltered by a tree to the left and this stump to the north of them. Note the pale colored one toward the top.
pixel
In these next two shots the bluebonnets have kept to the high parts of the field and none in the low. It makes the field look striped.

I saw this beautiful pale blue bluebonnet out away from the rest just looking to pose. I wanted to use a different angle so I placed my camera about two inches off the ground so I could catch the flower, trees in the background, and also capture the sky and clouds.
pixel
The fence around parts of the field looked pretty sad. Most were leaning and looked about to fall.
pixel
Blooms and barbed wire. This is some pretty old wire and looked like it had been there for ages.
pixel
The road and fence line are to the left and the bluebonnets are thickest along that line. I liked the combination of sun, shade, uneven ground to give the photo a pretty textured look.
pixel
All but one of these cattle are on the other side of a small creek along the center line of the photo. The bluebonnets extend out into the distance and up the hill in the background. I'm hoping that I can get down there next week when they should peak.
pixel
More bluebonnets and cattle up the road.
pixel
Look hard and you can see the cat in the photo. Well maybe not that hard, it's the big bulldozer in the upper right side. It's been there for as long as I've been driving this road for the bluebonnets. Several years.
pixel
Finally, I found the right angle to shoot this old house in Bristol, TX. It looks like the biggest house in a tiny town. I can just imagine a rich couple with plenty of kids having Saturday night parties, BBQs, or just plain sitting on the porch looking at the sunrise.

Bluebonnets, the state flower of Texas. Last week I traveled these same roads and didn't find anything like this. What few I saw were pretty straggly. All but a few of these are 5 shot HDR's processed with Photomatix Pro.
Hope you enjoy this little part of Texas.

revenant Lovely collection. I find Photomatix Pro softens the image (I use three shots, maybe that's why), but you've done a fantastic job, Dean.
