More Blue Bonnets

Category: Lavender | Posted: Sun Apr 13, 2008 5:35 pm

The blue bonnets are really coming out here at Purple Ranch. I finally got some time this morning to walk through the field and take some photos. What a relaxing place. You know they say a picture is worth a thousand words. I don't know that my photos do justice to these beautiful gifts of nature. I always hope that I come close to capturing the essence of this time. Yesterday we worked on getting a sign pole up at the front entrance of the farm. We had a welder weld a 16 foot sign post that we will eventually hang a 3-d lighted sign from. Another little project I have been working on for a while. The weather here has not been very cooperative. We have had a lot of rain. Today is beautiful. Not a cloud in the sky. I hope you enjoy the blue bonnets. Until next time. Lavender Up!

They are truly beautiful. I love that little red spec. The yellow flowers around makes the blue stand out more.

PRH-what camera do you use, zoom, etc.? The bluebonnets look like you could reach up and touch them. Thanks for sharing your pics.

I use a Canon 40D with a sigma telephoto lens. I don't recall off the top of my head which lens I used on these. I can get back with you.
