First Sign of Spring (Cheating)

I’ve driven out to Brenham in search of the wildflowers for the past three weekends and we’ve had the most pitiful weather for landscape and nature photography. It’s been either completely overcast or not a cloud in the sky. Both ends of the spectrum are not the best for shooting wildflowers. So until I can complete my mission, here a couple of shots taken last year near the Attwater Prairie Chicken National Wildlife Refuge in Eagle Lake, Texas.

  1. Jeff…you cheat really, really well. šŸ™‚ Weather is fickle. I’ve had great weather here all week but the weekend is going to turn cold and rainy. Maybe I’ll cheat on Monday. šŸ˜‰

  2. I’ve been meaning to head out to Brenham also…….hopefully this Friday or the weekend. Although, I think its going to be cloudy and the possibility of a few showers………ugghhh. Love the 2nd image!!!!!
