Here Are The Best Bluebonnet Photo Spots In Austin This Year

The bluebonnet fields are beginning to bloom in earnest, and that means one thing to Central Texans: It’s photo time! If you’re wondering where to go for the perfect state flower photo op, look no further. Our friend Sarah of Sarah Siller Photography has done the scouting for you. She’s been on a weeks-long hunt for bluebonnets, tracking down the best fields in and around Austin.

Sarah’s Tips for Beautiful Bluebonnet Photos

  • Shoot during the golden hour — an hour after sunrise or an hour before sunset — or shoot with a cloudy sky or in open shade so the bright sun does not overpower your pictures or leave your subject squinting.
  • Always be on the lookout for Texas creatures like ants and snakes.
  • Most importantly, don’t forget to be in your pictures!
