Here in the Northwest – it’s tulip season. If flowers are your thing – make it on out to your local field and check it out – and, of course, take that camera. And if contests are your thing – there’s likely one close by to submit your images.
This particular photo was taken out at the Wooden Shoe Tulip Festival – near Woodburn, OR – about two weeks ago. The festival is still running – and if you’re in the Willamette Valley – I think Friday and Saturday are supposed to be pretty good weather. And the lens? It’s the ultra cool Lensbaby fisheye – at f/22.
Last season – I cobbled together some notes for shooting events like this. If you’re interested – you can find them here.
