Yesterday evening I had a chance to walk down to a little part of our neighborhood and do a little shooting for myself. It was so nice to have the energy and time to be able to use my camera for what I wanted to shoot for a change.
The Texas Bluebonnets have come out again as a sign of a new spring! They are not quite as common this year as they were before, but I think we have a good bit of them considering the drought we had last year.
Typically, I have seen a lot of bluebonnet images in a field style. I wanted to do something a little different and was hoping to get images that were unique, so I tried a variety of angles. I also used my 100mm 2.8 macro lens, which I am loving for food and nature type stuff. It is so cool to be able to get such detailed shots!
Here are some of my favorites:
I know not all of the shots will be unique, and I am sure someone, somewhere has done something similar, but this is just what I thought would be good at the time.
Now here is a shot of bluebonnets I’m fairly certain I have never seen before. I cannot decide if I like it or not…
This shot was taken in a small grass bed over by our community pool. They planted bluebonnet seeds two years ago and a nice little patch has come out this year. Last year I don’t think we had any blooms at all.
