Skagit Valley at Sunrise
I found this smaller tulip field in Skagit Valley much more accessible than some of the larger fields where they charge admission to enter or park. Here I could pull up along the roadside and photograph to my heart's content. I photographed on the evening of the 2nd and the morning of the 3rd. This photo is from the morning shoot. From a photography standpoint, one thing I became aware of during my artistic photography class is my tendency for a very static horizontal composition, which I've gone to here out of habit. The thing is, I do find myself liking this type of composition. I guess I was trying to highlight the stripes of color bands, including the foothills in the distance. I'd be curious for feedback on this though, as the week goes on. I think this might be my only horizontally composed image.
