Blankets of purple, orange, red and yellow are beginning to spread out across Texas roadsides, which means it's time to dust off those digital cameras and start sending us your wildflower photos. This is my favorite from year's past. Shot by the Star-Telegram's multitalented Jill(y) Johnson in '04, it captures Yanira Manzano at "magic hour" (that's a photo term) in a field of Indian Paintbrush in Arlington. I'm including a few other favorites below, and here's a link with hints on how to shoot wildflower photos like the pros.
But we want to see your wildflower photos. Send 'em here. And I'll post them throughout the season. I may even take Albino Bowler out to shoot his photo. His stark white afro looks amazing against a bluebonnet backdrop.
