Last Saturday I switched from a wildflower chaser to a storm chaser. As thunderheads carrying hail and heavy rain moved across Mason and Llano Counties, I headed out hoping to catch the flip-side of the storm with a wildflower field and nice clouds. After some crazy rain and weather, I was rewarded with a rainbow for a while, as well as some unusual mammatus clouds. Here is one image from a small wildflower field, a nice oak, and the sunset looking north as the last light lite up the clouds from beneath: Wildflowers with Mammatus Clouds

Here is another image with wildflowers and a rainbow looking down the highway.

I've also found a few nice bluebonnet patches in the Hill Country, as well as some that have been trampled by folks. Some of those images with non-trampled photographs can be seen in my bluebonnet gallery. These photos span the last several years, and a majority come from the Hill Country (close to my home) as well as a few from Big Bend last month.

Hope everyone finds some nice color this season.

Thanks, Rich, for keeping this going. (Maybe you could help with allowing these images to show up ?

Hi Rob,

Very nicely done!  I am very familiar with the storm chasing aspect of wildflower photography! :)

As to the images - You need a direct hotlink to the image and use the Picture Icon. If the picture icon or the rich text editor is not showing up for you and you  are using IE 10 or above then you need to add wildflowerhaven.com to the Compatibility View Settings which is found under the Gear (Tools) menu.

During the off season, I plan to upgrade the software to the latest version which hopefully will recognize IE 10 and above. :)

Great work, Rob!   I had my own opportunity to photograph a wildflower field with a post-storm sky of mammatus clouds this evening in central Williamson County.    Canon 20D, EF 17-40mm lens;  f/5.6, 1/100 sec, ISO 200.

Nicely done Bill! Hope you all got through this recent round of storms okay.
