The tulip festival is over, but I thought I'd post about it anyway. This is the second year I've lived near the Skagit Valley. The tulip festival is one of the highlights of the season. There are fields of tulips and before that, fields of daffodils. It's hard to say whether I prefer the tulips or the daffodils. Later in the season the iris bloom, but I've yet to make it up there to visit.
Last year, I went armed with my trust 50mm but this year I wanted to give my telephoto a try. I love the compression. The mountain looks so much bigger and bigger is better!
