Visiting the Wooden Shoe Tulip Farm


While I had hoped for a gorgeous, sunny day when I visited the Wooden Shoe Tulip Farm last Sunday, Oregon weather flatly said NO! But I have to admit, I loved the way that the dark, stormy skies made the colors of the flowers pop. We did not get rained on the entire visit, despite the obvious threats from above.

That is the best shot I have ever seen of massed tulips and the sky lends just the right colour effect. Often flowers are best photographed under a cloudy sky unless you photograph against the light.
