Roadtrip Time In Texas

I decided that I needed a roadtrip to hunt for the fields of Bluebonnets that bloom this time of year a few counties to the north and west. Yesterday I made the decision that today would be the day, come what may. It almost looked as if I’d be trying to shoot wildflower photos in the rain as I was spattered on my first stop, but the rain held off. The wind didn’t though…so the pictures aren’t quite as sharp as I would have liked…Oh well, I like ’em anywho.

The area around Brenham in Washington County is known for the wildflower displays in the fields and pastures along it’s highways and byways…It’s always hit or miss as to where you find the best show but who cares, the trip is worth the day and driving around on old gravel roads in spring is a tonic I really needed.

Here are a few shots I stumbled upon today…

This next shot caught my eye as I passed a break in an overgrown fence row…

I just love the way the drive curves up to the barn…

I’ll post more later…

  1. Spotted the lines of that pasture lane right away, give good depth to the image.

    Hey, appreciate the early use of PayPal for the new book. Crossing fingers, things seem to be underway at the printers and books expected first week of May. Whooop!

  2. When I stumble across a view like that I sometimes wonder if the farmer laying out the property wasn’t an artist in another life…The curves of this lane, while probably helpful in climbing the hill, seemed too artistic to be random.

    It’s finding images like this that keeps me driving the back country roads with camera and tripod. The wildflowers are just icing on the cake.

    As far as the book goes, I’ve traveled this journey with you this far, I might as well stay along for the rest of the ride.
