the winds of skagit.

Newer Older

day ninety-two; april 2, 2010. the only way to view this is large and on black. seriously awesome.

yesterday, my sister and i took a trip up to the skagit county tulip festival. normally, this is a pretty spring occasion with hoards of people looking and the endless fields of tulips. on this occasion, however, 40+ mph wind gusts and near freezing temperatures kept most of those people away.

but since we were there, we needed to get the shot anyways! this is a three shot hdr exposure and i was quite surprised how the tulips turned out being that the wind was almost able to knock me over. (as always, view it large with the link above: flickr's sharpening just doesn't do this justice)

since many people have asked, you can get a print of this one here :)

    I used this photograph in my front page post at
    Here is the link to the article. This was on the front page April 6th 2013 starting at 10:30 today.
    The title of the article is
    How Do Justice Failures Affect You?

    I selected it after searching for the word Justice. This image came up first. I don't know why, but I'm glad it did. It adds some beauty and mystery to a serious topic. Thank you, great work. You are credited in the caption and at the bottom of the piece.
