I was able to get up to the Skagit Valley Tulip Festival Saturday night. Transitional weather provided some interesting cloud cover and clearing to the west allowed the sun to sneak through at the horizon. If you are planning to shoot up there, I'd say it will be about another week until the majority of the fields are blooming.

Thanks for looking,

Beautiful shot, Kevin. I haven't been up there in the evening light. Always trying to get that "special sunrise over the field" shot. You got me thinking now that I might have to go twice in one day.

Holy cow, that's absolutely gorgeous. Perfect exposure on the field as well as the sky. This is the best example of a reverse GND that I've ever seen, period.

Pretty! The clouds' color compliments the tulips' beautifully.

Killer shot Kevin. I plan to be there at the end of the week and hoping for some blooms and decent atmospherics.

Kevin, Thats what we figured one more week. It looks like you didn't need to wait. I would be happy if I walk away with anything half this good. Rick

Great stuff Kevin. Will be going to Wooden Shoe Friday Morning (weather permitting)

I guess spring has officially arrived.

Hey Kevin,

What a really cool shot! I really like how you handled the sun in this one! Did you use a ND grad on this or manually blend in processing? It looks very natural however you did it.

I wish I lived in that area, just for this. I was trying to figure out how to jump on a plane tomorrow for about a three day visit. I was told no, but I WILL get out there next year.

Great shot, Kevin. (Just saw your image posted on earthshots.. congrats!)

Thanks for the heads up regarding the status of the fields. I'm considering heading up there shortly as well.

How big is the area? Sounds like there are a bunch of fields...

I was scouting the area and beaver marsh road has numerous fields and best road has a few which are slowly blooming.

Sweet - I am amazed you can even go out in the fields to shoot. Portland has shut down all of their parks because everything is so wet you just sink in to your ankles while standing in grassy fields.

Good luck this weekend.
