Drove north out of Seattle to see how the tulips are coming along in Skagit. The Daff fields are ablaze. We found several tulip fields that were obviously a week or two out. Going to be a great Tulip Photo season.
This gorgeous bloom is from the amazing Christiansen’s Nursery near La Conner.
It’s been so cold and wintery up here in Seattle. I forgot other parts of the country are a lot warmer and sunnier. So I was pleasantly surprised visiting Carmel to see blooms around every corner. This was one of my favorites. Zeiss 50mm f/1.4 handheld, windy day, very little post processing.
Each year I spend a bit of time amongst the tulip fields in Skagit County. I really love this time of year. Last year I was living nearby which helped considerably. Now down in Seattle, I have to plan each trip carefully. Or sleep in my car 🙂
Spent some time in the Washington Park Arboretum here in Seattle. One of my favorite botanical photography spots. With dramatic rain squall clouds approaching, I got a few nice shots in the gentle light. Handheld, very little post processing. f/2.0 or faster.
