Tulip Festival

OK, so I’m not thrilled with shooting flowers, but today was such a beautiful day here in the Northwest (yes, 59 degrees with clear skies is a treat), that I piled in the car with some good friends and headed north to Le Connor for the Tulip Festival.  When we arrived, there was a sea of people and about a football field of flowers.  They had guards (not sure they were armed but they might have been) making sure nobody stepped near a tulip.   I actually saw a family trying to get a jumping photo inside a tulip bed!  Anyway, though we were there at full, high-noon sun (which in the NW, is about 3:00pm), I tried to get some shots.  Back down in the mud, I laid upon the soil attempting to get a shot that was somewhat different than the 1,300, 483 images taken before me.  Not sure I succeeded but, hey, at least I was out with a camera in my hand.  The results?  Well, not spectacular, but here they are.

    I went last Tuesday too, and there have been a lot of blooms topped just in the past week. Last week was probably prime. The next rain (Thursday?) will take most of what’s left. Tomorrow will be as awesome as today.
