Tulip Field Sunbreak

Finally a break in this rain week we've been having! I took advantage and headed to Woodland to check out the tulip fields at the Holland American Bulb Farm, which is quite a bit smaller than the Wooden Shoe Farm in Woodburn, Oregon but is also a lot closer. It was pretty foggy this morning, but at least the fields were in full bloom. During my visit a tiny strip of blue sky opened up for a short time, and I capitalized.  Technically it might not be a sunbreak, because the sun was still behind the fog.  But it made for a bright photo without all the shadows cast by the sun, and I think the photo does a good job giving the illusion of a sunny day.  There weren't any red fields to photograph, but at least I stuck to my goal, kept my zoom lens in the car and focused on the wider field view.

That's really stunning. Who says you can't have a horizontal line cutting the photo in two? this works perfectly.
