Skagit Valley Tulip Festival

I had the opportunity to get up to Mount Vernon last night to shoot the tulips. We were lucky enough to have an interesting sky, and although there weren't many fields peaking yet, this field of pink tulips was in full bloom.

    Gorgeous colors, great shot!
  • Inge Johnsson 4y

    Very nice. The sunburst is not entirely "natural", is it? It looks a little too defined and at a perfect angle.
  • Kevin Pieper 4y

    Inge Johnsson Inge, I'm not sure what you mean by the perfect angle, but I used exposure fusion and multiple exposures to make the sunstar tighter.
  • Mathieu Bertrand Struck PRO 4y

    A gorgeous image. Love the tulip foreground and the rich colors you got.

    What was the ISO?
