If there's any time of year when Texas is a nature photographer's paradise, it's during bluebonnet season. This year I decided to expand my normal range and take an overnight trip to the Hill Country to shoot some. Reports a couple of weeks ago indicated things were about to peak, so I booked a room in Killeen and headed out on a Friday afternoon.
Woodway Park as a promising destination. I didn't find huge fields of bluebonnets when I got there, but I did discover this nice patch right on the shore of Lake Waco.
No clouds in the sky meant there was little twilight color to speak of. I was satisfied with this appetizer, but I had a fever. And the only prescription was More Bluebonnets! So it was back to the car and on to Killeen for some sleep before an early departure to catch sunrise on Saturday!
