photoblog image Bluebonnets

Bluebonnets

I don't have anything suitable to post for April 1st, but since the Bluebonnet, shown above at left, is the State Flower of Texas and this notion strikes me as at least somewhat preposterous, I am offering you this shot for this most foolish day.

HA! I like the way you think, Martin. I had a photo up for today and switched it at the last minute when I decided it was more a Friday-the-13th image than an April Fool's one. smile

Wonderful composition, Martin. You are certainly giving us the `low down` on Texas. (:o)
I like the immensity feeling with this low angle shot. Great contrast of colours!
Lovely, love the view
They had flying penguins on the Television news this morning! It was well done. This is well done too. In fact I think it is a superb picture.

I love your pic- and blue in different shades is my most beloved colour! There is a wonderful correspondence between earth (bluebonnets) and sky- most impressive is the fact that these flowers are blooming on this desertlike ground! The desert lives too as we know!

The low down POV really accentuates the vastness of the landscape. It seems amazing that anything can grow there.

This is a very lonely flower, like the song of the police.

These are fantastic landscapes you are giving us MArtin. They make me want to be there... that's a real measure of their success.
