I look forward to photographing Big Bend Bluebonnets each time I travel to Big Bend National Park during the spring season. This year, the flower did not disappoint. I was on my way back from Santa Elena Canyon after photographing the night sky and the sunrise when I spotted a huge mound filled with Blue Bonnets. I had to stop and look. It was then that I found this perfect specimen. These bluebonnets are taller and thinner than the ones we see in Central Texas and they grow in large numbers along the park’s roadways.
This image was taken with my Sony A7 IV using my Sony FE 90mm f/2.8 Macro Lens. The camera was set on Manual mode with the aperture set at f/2.8, shutter speed at 1/100th of a second, and ISO set at 100. I used a tripod and my focus rail to capture eleven images which I stitched together using Adobe Photoshop using the focus stacking feature. I finished processing the image in Photoshop using Nik Color Efex Pro.
