Checkin for Bluebonnets

Went out last Sunday evening around 5 looking for some golden hour bluebonnet shots. For those not in the know, bluebonnets are the Texas state flower. Found a few but still early in the season. I did find a few other things in the late day light.

Low setting sun and a rusty fence post make this my favorite of the shots.

Most of the thick groupings are right against the road since it is so early. The areas in the fields where they are usually so thick were pretty sparse right now.

There were a few in the fields but not really very many.

Barbed wire and bluebonnets. Can't get much more Texas than that.

A few bullet holes, a little rust, and no trunk, doors, or windows give me the impression that this may have been there for a while. I'm thinking that this is a ‘40’s model whatever.

A few iris flowers by an old cemetery.

Walked out and got a closer shot or two. Another photographer passing by saw me and pulled over to take a few shots also.

Suns getting low giving a beautiful backlighting to these iris.
