Serendipity

We had a fabulous ground fog yesterday morning, so I thought I should head back to the tulip farm in Woodland to see if the fog was hanging there too. Turns out there was no fog in the tulip field, but as I drove past the large farm building looking to set my sites elsewhere I discover another large tulip field with plenty of red! And surprisingly, this field was shrouded in a thin layer of fog! This field was not open to the public, so I set up at the edge of the field and waited for sunrise. Too bad the sun rose directly in front of me so it turned out to be way too strong. This photo was taken several minutes before the sunrise.

Melissa, you said Woodland. I wondered if you headed down toward Davis, but then I see you had been in Woodburn. I like Woodland but have never seen tulips there. Incredible series of photos.

Blood red tulips with pretty green dresses dancing in line into the fog in the distance :)

Oh, my. This is an amazing image!!!! The leading lines, the rich red of the tulips and fog all make for an outstanding photo.
