    Here is a little tour of the Texas Highways durring the spring. My main focus is obviously on Bluebonnets but I spotted a few other gems as well. Please tell me what you think.

    #1 A view of how prolific the Bluebonnets get in spring

    You have some beautiful shots there! :thumbup: I like #2 with the blues and the yellows but I would like it alot more if it didn't have the tops of the buildings in the background. My other favorites are #5 and #7. I also like that effect.:D

    Actually there billboards, it's the price you pay for shooting on the highway. I guess I could edit them out.

    A sneeky way to bump. :) I touched up #2 and removed the highway clutter.

    Nice stuff.

    Look like what we used to have (pygmy lupine), but big. We used to have flowers, back when we used to have rain, but that was in the spring, and we don't have that any more either.

    Very Nice I am partial to #6. I've been lazy and yet to venture out to the Blue Bonnets...I'm sure they'll be gone by the time I get there.

    Ooo, I wish we had shows like that out here. I love the perspective on the wide angle shot.
