Looking back, Looking forward (Colorado Wildflowers, Texas Bluebonnets)

March 2, 2014

It seems we’re at an in-between time for photography. Our bluebonnet rosettes are showing promise after a slightly colder winter than normal. We just need rain now. The grasses around the Texas Hill Country are still relatively brown, but there are pockets of green showing. Yesterday in Austin, I even saw bluebonnets that had bloomed.
So until everything else things turn green, I’ve been spending time looking back at some old images, as well as heading out to the closest Texas state park to my house, Pedernales Falls State Park.
I ventured out to this park the last two weekends for sunrise, both of which offered pretty amazing colors. From the first day of March, this sunrise greeted me:

Sunrise at Pedernales Falls State Park, nestled in the Texas Hill Country, is a nice place to start the day.

The first day of March greeted the Texas Hill Country with a beautiful sunrise seen here at Pederneles Falls State Park.

I’ve also spent some time revisiting some of my Colorado Wildflower images. I love the Rocky Mountains in the summer, and two things I enjoy doing are 1)climbing and 2)photographing the wildflowers on these hikes. This wildflower image comes from a trek up Mount Massive, one of Colorado’s tallest 14ers.

Colorado wildflower images are some of my favorite pictures take while in the Rocky Mountains.

From around 12,000 feet, these Colorado Wildflowers adorn the slopes of Mount Massive.

For more Colorado wildflowers, see my Colorado Images website for these beauties.

One last thing I’ve spent time on is reviewing old Texas wildflower images. I’m so ready for spring and wildflowers to reappear here in the Texas Hill Country. I present here one of my favorite bluebonnet images. This picture was taken outside of Llano where I came across an old wooden fence surrounded by a sea of blue.

See you out there on the road!
