It is always fun to get my images into Texas Highways magazine’s annual wildflower issue. Last year I had the cover. This year I have a full-page inside cover of one of my images, a simple image of a winecup.

My instinct when shooting is to crop in as tightly as I can. I have to remind myself sometimes that I need to shoot a version with some negative space that can accommodate text. I am sure that was a huge reason why Texas Highways chose this image.

I also love that they chose an image from the Big Spring in the Great Trinity Forest  in Dallas. Big Spring and The GTF are both dear to my heart, and I love helping get them more exposure!
