Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #158 – Along Back Country Roads

This week, Beth leads LAPC weekly theme: Along Back Country Roads.

I would like to take you to Texas Country roads to visit Texas Longhorn, cattles, horses, and wildflowers

The Texas Longhorn is a breed of cattle known for its characteristic horns, which can extend to over 100 inches (2.54 m) tip to tip for cows and bulls.

Driving through some of the long narrow country roads in Texas, you may get to see horses. For taking a few photos of these horses, I have to park my car right on the road pretty risky and walk up to the ranch through layers of bushes and be very careful about those electrical wires around there. Pretty risky… After making all that effort, if I’m lucky, I can see a few horses.

Somehow, the masion on top of the hill reminds me the old time “Dallas” TV series:


Between March and April, you can enjoy Texas wildflowers through the back country roads. I probably will never find this site again, but I remember it was a long, bumpy, and unpaved road. Hubby was driving, and we had no idea where we were.

Often, you see bird happily flying up there. 🙂

Beth (wanderingdawgs.com) invistes us to join the Back Country Roa rod theme, “It can be a road where you walk, go for a bike ride, take a scenic drive, go off-roading in a jeep or four wheeler, or a road you take to get somewhere.” Click here to enjoy her beautiful photos of “Along Back Country Roads” and her travel stories.

Next week on July 31, Ana (Anvica’s Gallery) will lead LAPC challenge – “Postcards.” Be sure to visit her site.

  2. Great set. About the photo of wildflowers, what I remember of similar photos from Texas, I would guess that you don’t need to find the same spot. You can probably find new but equally lovely spots every year


    • So glad you ejoyed these images. During the peak time of wildflowers, we have never visited the same spot twice. Wildflowers stretches to Houston and Dallas, freeways and country roads. 🙂


  3. This was a nice collection. Kind makes me want to go search for the Texas wildflowers. So pretty. And I agree. The one photo with the mansion in the distance is definitely a “Dallas” moment. I loved that series in the early day. Have a nice rest of your day, Amy. Donna

    • Thank you for visiting, Donna! About three years ago, when I was taking photos outside of this “Dallas” ranch, the ranch hgand saw me and invited to get in through the impressive gate with the approval of the masion owner thr cell. 🙂 When you plan a trip, you can Google search of course. Also, there is a TX wildflower report on FB, which helps a lot.

  4. Thank you for these wonderful images from Texas. I love the longhorns, horses, wildflowers, and the birds soaring overhead. We spent some time on e spring wandering around Texas in search of bluebonnets and other wildflowers. We were on a few like the one you featured! Thank you for joining the challenge!


  5. Dear Amy,
    thank you very much for taking us on your trip. We are lucky, where we live there are only small country roads. We have no bigger road or motorway in our area, the next big road is an one hour’s drive away. We love that.
    Great shots 👍
    Have a happy week
