Springtime in Texas

This weekend was gorgeous – warm, sunny, and windless.  Springtime perfection.  So perfect, in fact, that for the first time in my life I had the desire to be one of those people who plops their kids down in the middle of a field of Texas Bluebonnets and snaps lots and lots of pictures.

Here are some of the results:

Hello, Spring.

I’m not much of a photographer, though I am trying to improve my skills.  A few weeks ago, my husband was kind enough to gift me with my first DSLR – a Canon EOS T2i with a kickin’ telephoto lens.

I’ve been playing around and here are a few of my latest efforts:

I have lots of room for improvement, but I think I’ve made a good start.
