It is absolutely normal. No need to worry about it. Prominent bronchovascular marking are normal phenomenon and most commonly seen in lung bases. By rule Fluid follws the gravity and so blood is more in lung bases so the vessels around lower bronchi are more prominent and appear more on chest x ray due to more blood in it. Don't worry it is not a disease.
