Last week I posted some pictures of a recent trip to the Ennis Bluebonnet Trails. This week I have a few more pictures from that trip of Bluebonnets and Cattle in Ennis, Texas.
Bluebonnets and Cattle in Ennis, Texas
These pictures were taken on March 30th, 2017 in Ennis, Ellis County, Texas and surrounding areas. As I mentioned in the last article, we were a little early for the season but this year everywhere in the state the wildflowers have been popping early. Many of the pictures I’ve been seeing show early wildflower displays and not as great as previous years. From what I found the reason for the limited display of wildflowers is because of the unseasonable warm winter and limited rainfall last fall and winter. I imagine it will take a few years for the wildflowers to recover.
As to our trip, many of the areas that we explored and considered popular didn’t have a great display, but still beautiful. We even explored off the beaten track and found some displays that were impressive.
We still think a trip to the Ennis Bluebonnet Trails is worth the trip if you are only a few hours away. For us, its only a two hour drive and lot easier to make a day trip to Ennis then it is to get down to Texas Hill Country or further south to the Big Bend Area.
About the Images
Images were shot by hand on a sunny day with a Sony A6000 using a Sony E 55-210mm F4.5-6.3 Lens or a Sony SEL16F28 16mm f/2.8 Wide-Angle Lens or the Sony SELP1650 16-50mm Power Zoom Lens. The images were then edited using Adobe Lightroom to crop, straighten and clean up the images. I used Google NIK Collection and TopazLabs Clarity to add detail, add contrast, and sharpen/remove noise. As always my images are for sale with or without the watermark in digital and prints.
