Love your pictures of Texas

Big Bend Country looks a wild and desolate place - great place to go walking and view nature ..

Beautiful Texas photos! Thanks for the lovely tour...

Judy said...

Wow what beautiful photos. Awesome T post.

Larry said...

Awesome photography! I like the Texas thunderstorm rising the best-powerful image. 30 minutes after sunset is my second favorite-nice color!

Kim said...

Texas is so beautiful, and you captured it wonderfully.

David said...

Beautiful photos! I like in particular the sun photos, and the morning fog. You always seem to capture the sun at the precise moment when it is actually invisible, which makes the best capture!

Cheers,

David Webb - Photographer

I don't think it gets more diverst than in the old State of Texas. Thanks for the quick tour. It sure takes longer if you drive. :)

leslie said...

Gorgeous shots! I've always wanted to see Texas, especially Galveston and San Antonio.

Max-e said...

From my earliest childhood days I have been an avid "Western" fan so have read a lot about Texas in novels and in history books. It is therefore nice to see a variety of pictures of the "Lone Star State".

Picturing of Life said...

Loved your Texas morning rising. They are all great photos and are perfect choices for the letter T.

RuneE said...

You have done a nice presentation of your state. Personally I fell for the Caddo Lake.

PS I have never been to Texas, but was once asked by a couple of guys at an airport in LA if I came from Texas. They must have been very polite - my accent is very Norwenglish.

CaBaCuRl said...

Thanks for visiting my blog. I love all your Texas pictures...I had no idea Texas had beaches! All I know about Texas I gleaned from TV, I am ashamed to admit. Thanks to your blog, i know a bit more,

A perfect "t" choice for you! wonderful picutres and wonderful scenery.

Louis la Vache said...

Oh, WOW! You've got some fabulous shots here! "Louis" was happy to see the Palo Duro Canyon shot, as he grew up in Lubbock, went to (what was then called) West Texas State University at Canyon, and lived in Amarillo for a number of years.

At SF Bay Daily Photo, "Louis" continued the theme of his "S" post with the "T" post. HERE is how he did it.

Lovely photos of Texas - and what else would you post for "T"? I'd love to visit and see what you see.

T.R. said...

What stunning photography. Especially the sunset at the Window. I've long wanted to see the Palo Duro country and Big Bend. Texas really is a whole other country.

These are beautiful photos of your beautiful state! Love 'em!

KatNell said...

Great photography! Thanks for making me smile as I think about all the adventures I had in Texas. The Caddo Lake picture really brings back memories of growing up in East Texas. While I am not a blogger (yet), I have enjoyed your blog for several months now since my good friend, Kathiesbirds, led me to it. Thanks for sharing.

Your blog is very nice.
Thanks for visiting mine.

Lynette said...

Love the photos, love Texas. At one point during the seven-and-one-half years that we moved often for my Daddy's job we lived in over 20 towns in Texas. I can't remember all of them any more, but of the top of my head, here goes: San Antonio (twice), Borger, Fort Stockton, Pasadena, Beaumont, Wichita Falls, La Porte, Dickinson, Aransas Pass, Temple, Orange, Port Arthur, Rockport, Kilgore, Longview, San Angelo, Daingerfield, Waco ... that's all Mama and I can remember right now.

zetor said...

Great photos.

Bear Naked said...

raf said...

Good to see your gorgeous shots of Big Bend and the Gulf Coast, Troy and Martha! Brings a tear... :)

Louis la Vache said...

"Louis" just noticed over at Portland (OR) DP that you had lived in Borger for 20 years! "Louis" had an aunt and uncle who lived there for a time, and when "Louis" was a District Merchandiser for Safeway out of the Amarillo District Office, he went to Borger when Safeway had that old dump of a store they had inherited from McCartt's there! "Louis" well remembers how the fumes from that Phillips Petroleum plant turned anything painted white yellow in that town. Even now, he remembers the stench from that plant. You probably didn't look back when you left Borger!

Sandpiper said...

These pictures are stunning! I love the landscape there. It's so pretty.

Tide has turned? Didn't know.
Great shots, esp. the thunderstorm one. Happy shooting.

Doug Taron said...

That's a really finse sequence of photos. I really need to see more of Texas. Big Bend and tthe West Texas shots were especially inspiring. And I like the Texas Crescent (no big surprise there).

Suburbia said...

Texas looks fantastic! Lovely photos and perfect for T!

starnitesky said...

The letter T perfect for you. Beautiful views of Texas.

TSannie said...

Texas from Texans - the perfect T!

Love the blue of the first pic and Texas thunderstorm rising.
And the Palo Duro Canyon reflection is lovely.

MyThreeDaughters said...

Old workmates of my husband loved Texas. It doesn't look like Australia though, so there must be other similarities that they enjoyed or something else again lol.
Thanks for visiting my blog.
