      In the spring (especially in Ottawa) we see so many tulip pics. I have never seen one like this. Very creative!

      Thanks all! It was a special evening. After some beer (and maybe whiskey?) a few Ottawa flickr-people went out to shoot tulips in the dark, with only one full-sized tripod between the lot of us. Thanks to for the use of her gorillapod. Without it, this shot would have never been possible.

      At first, I tried to use a rain-umbrella to bounce and diffuse my tiltable pop-up flash, and it worked pretty well, until I saw the moon starting to rise, and then, there was no choice: I had to try to get both tulips and moonrise in the same photo.

      The light was unique and eerie, so I was trying to go for something just a touch unsettling with the forced perspective, but I love that there can be so much beauty in darkness.

      Flowers is a fascinating subject for a twilight photography, and you excellently presented it.

      Definitely one of the best tulip shots taken in Ottawa.
