Wildflower Hunt ▌Fort Huachuca Photographer, Arizona


It's bluebonnet season - in Texas... I've been drooling over the amazing patch of bonnets that my friend, and amazingly talented photographer Julie Rivera, has been photographing all weekend. That's what people DO in the spring time in Texas; seek out bluebonnets, which hilariously enough are infested with bugs and snakes and all kinds of uncomfortable natural beings, and plop their newborns and smaller children amongst the blossoms for the annual spring photo. It's a photographer's dream! But, I fins myself trapped in Arizona, where there is NO water to speak of, a pre-requisite for bluebonnets. But things are looking up here in Sierra Vista, we not have bluebonnets, but we have Texas Sage blooming on our highways and byways! It's gorgeous and spreading like a wildfire. Now, if I could just find a brilliant patch to rival Julie's, far enough away from the road that I can let the kiddos loose...

I love the way you processed this with the grain. The color of the blooms is wonderful. My girl would be in heaven. It's her favorite color. :)

You mean you don't want to plop them down in the median??
