Images of Texas

This image of Texas is title “Quintessential Texas” taken early Monday morning, April 27th. Nothing says Texas like windmill with a wooden fence and bluebonnets. Hopefully, I capture the essence of Texas in the spring time. The bluebonnets are fading fast here in the Texas Hill Country, but a second round of wildflowers are bursting with colors.

Hi Guys. I was asked by the Photography Editor of Texas Highways Magazine to come to the opening of the The Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center in Austin which celebrates spring with Wildflower Days, including The Spectacular Wow, an exhibit of Texas Highways’ springtime photos from the annual April wildflower issue. I will be there from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. this Saturday, April 25th. I will be on hand to talk shop, answer any questions, and review your photo work. If you are in the Austin area this coming weekend, stop by to say by and Hi.

Here is a recent photo taken in Burnet County in the Texas Hill Country. As the Texas bluebonnets starts to seed and slowly dimension, other wildflowers like the Lazy-eyed Susan and the Firewire have started to bloom. With all the recent rain, I think it would be good year.

Please view my gallery to see more Texas wildflowers.

Along West Fort Worth, a lots of open prairies can be found as well.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year everyone! Here is a recent New Mexico landscape photo I just photographed while driving up to Taos and Angel Fire. I did a little snowboarding and it was exceptionally warm. It felt warmer than today than North Texas.

Morning Glory Blooming In the Gulf Coast of Texas Beach

Morning Glory Blooming In the Gulf Coast of Texas Beach

Texas is known for bluebonnets, but there are so much more wildflowers that grows in our state. In the Gulf Coast, Morning Glory grows abundantly over the sloping dunes making a beautiful background. I was fortunate enough to photograph a fainted rainbow with Morning Glory wildflowers blooming on the dunes over the Gulf of Mexico on Padre Island National Seashore in Texas before the storm erupted.

Classic Texas

Not my typical Texas landscape photos, but I saw this Texas Longhorn walking nonchalantly along the street and I figure I would snap a shot. The Texas Longhorn picture reminds of today’s gloomy weather. Hope everyone is getting some needed rain.

Most people do not associate beaches to Texas, but Texas coast offers miles of powder sand beaches, blue sky, and warm temperatures. From Galveston to Port Aransas to South Padre Island to North Padre Island National Seashore to Rockport, Texas beaches offers fishing, swimming, birding, or just simply relaxing.

Please view my gallery to see more pictures and images of the Texas coast beach.

Here are some recent Texas coast beach photos in the Gulf of Mexico:

Located just 2.5 hours drive from DFW and minutes away from Lawton, Wichita Mountains Wildlife Refuge, which some considered one of the most scenic landscape in Oklahoma, offers a vast amount of incredible scenery with lots of small lakes, abundant amount of wildlife, and granite mountain views. The refuge’s rugged landscape has miles of picturesque hiking trails and is home to free range buffalo, Texas Longhorn cattle, elk, deers, and coyotes.

I have always wanted to photograph the Teddy Bear Cholla or better known as Jumping Cholla, a cactus that when the sun hits them will illuminate a “glow”. When the opportunities knock, I took advantage of it and flew to Phoenix, Arizona for a few days. Fortunately, the Sonoran Desert was very close to Phoenix and having seen a dozen photos of the cholla catus, I knew I wanted a different composition instead of just the mountains and desert. I drove for a couple of days in the Tonto National Forest and finally found what I had imagined in my head: a desert oasis.

I feel a little rusty not having photographed anything for a year so it’s nice to come home with an Arizona landscape photo that I am happy with.

2014 Spring in Texas

Here is an intimate photo of the bluebonnets and Indian Paintbrushes as they are often seen growing together in a lot of areas in Texas. Alone these Texas wildflowers are quite beautiful, but paired together they are quite a showstopper.
