In April 2015 a photographer friend and I went on a road trip to do some exploring in Texas Hill Country and parts of West Texas. As we were heading west, we came across an old Cadillac Sitting by the gates of a ranch surrounded by Bluebonnets and other wild flowers. When we saw this, we had to turn around and take a closer look.
Cadillac Yard Art in Texas Hill Country – Marble Falls, Texas
It turns out the old car is a bright yellow Cadillac Series 62 sedan behind the stone walls of a Texas Hill Country. The owners built a mound of dirt and placed the Cadillac as king of the hill. I can’t imagine what this car looks like during peak wild flower season, but someday I plan to stop by again during wild flower season.
The Cadillac Yard Art in Texas Hill Country can be found off HWY 120 (also listed as FM 1855) just a few miles north west of Marble Falls, Texas heading towards Kingsland, Texas. Its off to the left and you can’t miss if you are looking for it. It is behind a closed gate with no trespassing signs. Please respect the owners wishes and ask the them for a closer look.

About the Images
The images were shot just before another large storm system came into the area. The shots were taken by hand with my Sony Nex-3N and a Sony SEL16F28 16mm f/2.8 lens. I then edited the images in Adobe Lightroom. Next, I post processed with Topaz Clarity to add texture, brighten, and bring out the details in the images. Then I removed the dust spots. Finally, I used Topaz DeNoise to remove the noise from the images.
