After a day’s break from the trip to Forks, Craig and I took advantage of a break in the rain to hit Roozengaarde in Skagit to photograph the tulips before the festival began. About half of the tulips were in bloom and the daffodils were still out, though they looked ready to wilt. Fortunately the weather and time of day seemed to keep most people away. This also gave me a chance to use my Leofoto tripod on different terrain. Again, things just happened to work out for us as the rain held off and the clouds helped give the photos a dramatic, almost ominous look that contrasts with the burst of colors below. Too bad the stiff breeze prevented any chance of getting a longer exposure, but that’s fine. For tulips, it’s all about the colors.
Anyways, it’s been a busy week. Mind you, these have been processed quickly and will be reprocessed in the near future. Thank you for checking out my photos and reading my stories. If you’d like a print, please contact me and I will be sure to accommodate.
