I have to admit that I have a cool job: taking people out for Photo Tours at the Skagit Valley Tulip Festival…
So far this year I have visited the tulip fields 14 times. Each visit is different, the light, sky and clouds change very rapidly.
This first set of images is from a sunrise photo shoot. After finding the one lone red tulip and capturing it with a nice sky background, I was pulled towards the field workers and their truck nearby…

I was mystified about what they were doing, collecting huge bundles of tulips and unceremoniously tossing them in the back of a big truck!
Then, the next evening I was out on a rather gray day, very dull…until just before sunset when the clouds thinned a bit and the most magnificent colors popped out for a short while. The tractor was, of course a magnet.
