Time to make a bluebonnet run

All the Texas wildflowers are blooming great. The weather has been amazing and it is time to go and shoot some photos. We will be heading to Chappel Hill, TX and heading to Texas Independence Hall. Many photo ops will be available macro shots, landscape, people, historic. Black and white and color this meetup will have all the shots to go and play with your camera. Look for a follow up email as to the meeting spot. We will be meeting at 1:00 P.M. on Saturday In Montgomery at Brookshire Bros Parking lot and taking off from there. If you can not make it to the meetup point in Montgomery, we will be heading to Chappell Hill and to the Washington on the Brazos and Independance Hall. You can meet us there.

To answer a few questions people had, this is a family friendly shoot, you can bring family and friends.  There is no cost.  This is to shoot landscape, flowers, buildings, black and white, whatever you would like.  This is not a model shoot, no models will be provided.  If you are new to photography and need instruction, insight or help to improve your photography.  There will be many experienced photographers there that love to help, share and teach.  So no matter what your skill, come out and have a great time.

    Last weekend there were some exceptionally good locations on SH 105 between Lake Conroe and Plantersville. There was a nice large patch between the gas station and Whataburger just past Walden Rd. The area near the Montgomery fire station has been better in past years and might be better this weekend. Just after the high school until you get well past Dobbin there a couple of large patches and many smaller patches. There were hillside and tall clumps that would be perfect for family shots. There was a really nice location about a half mile from Lake Creek as you go into Dobbin, in front of a nice home.

      I had the opportunity to drive out to Montgomery today. There are lots of patches along 105, especially after the lake. I was bummed, though - last year there was a large patch of bluebonnets in and around Fernland Park (the historic park with the log cabins) and around the pond to the side of the library right next to it. So, don't bother with Fernland :(

      Sorry, I realize that didn't make sense. There were only a few small handfuls of bluebonnets in Fernland, and almost none around the pond, and last year both were prolific.

    OK looking at a map we're heading for Washington on the Brazos park near Navasota. I'm going to take 105 west from Conroe as I know that route normally has good flowers. I'll meet you all at independence Hall. Does anyone want to ride with me?
