Default tulip fields

took a trip up to Mt Vernon (about 30 miles north of where i live) yesterday to check out the tulip fields, which draw visitors from all over the Seattle region, as well as tourists from out of state. in the past, the entire valley has been dotted with daffodil and tulip farms growing flowers - they sell the bulbs as well as the flowers themselves. but this year there seemed to be only a couple of tulip farms open. i guess the recession has claimed a few more victims... anyway, the light wasn't the best - a bit harsh - but we do what we can with what we have to work with. the hard part shooting these fields is getting a shot without people in the middle of it! as it was, i had to put up with people in the background, but i managed to at least avoid getting them in the middle of the fields! 5D2, 24-105 @ various settings...

Really like #1 Rocky! It has a great sense of depth and dimension.

I kept looking at #3 and said to myself that the picture needs straightening...but it is in fact leveled. But looking at the end of the row of flowers in the distance sure fools the eye!

Cracking shots squirl033. You did a good job with the messy people around the fields )

thanks, Jehan! yeah, it's kind of an optical illusion because the rows of flowers are angled toward me. but i used the building in the distance as a frame of reference.

Very, VERY reminiscent of the tulip fields of the Netherlands. In fact, when I opened the thread, that's exactly where I thought they were taken. Most excellent!

Beautiful photos. Vermont is not only beautiful in Autumn (Fall), and the mountains in the distance, I am sure I can see some snow there
