Nature Photography – Wildflowers and Fences

Last Friday I drove over 150 miles on the back roads of Washington County, Texas looking for wildflowers. Around every bend I’d find bluebonnets on the side of roads, in the farmer’s fields and next to the pastures full of grazing cattle (Longhorns of course). I wanted these two images to portray the rustic beauty that can be found in the part of Texas I love the best!

For you history buffs, Washington was the site of the 1836 General Convention which decided the fate of Texas and where the Texas Declaration of Independence was signed on March 2, 1836. Washington remained a county of some prominence in early Texas history right up until the Civil War began.

  1. Nice Photos!
    No bluebonnets here, yet. Maybe after the rain we’ll start to see some.

  2. Jeff, I really like the angle of the fence in your second image the best. Great job……….
