Daily Image - Apr 2011 Archive - sonofjohan
21Apr 11.  Just back from the monthly Mountaineer's Photo Committee - everything in the Mountaineers is a committee, so translate this to the Mountaineers Photo Club - monthly potluck and image sharing where there were seemingly three themes tonight; a Camp Casey Whidbey Island photo scavenger hunt, the Fisherman's Terminal Basic Class lab, and the late blooming tulips up in the Skagit Valley. I didn't participate in the scavenger hunt, and I've shared lots from the Fisherman's Terminal lab, so perhaps it is time to jump on board with the tulip theme. According to those who shared tulip images tonight, they are just beginning to show their stuff, at least two weeks late. So if the weather holds, Friday will likely be a tulip trip, and if not, early next week, perhaps Monday or Tuesday. So not yet having made a sojourn to the fields this year, how about one from last year' collection. There are two main producers where we go, Tulip Town and Roozengaarde, and this is from the main Roozengaarde site. (I'll write more about each site later next week) This is a late afternoon lighting condition, on a day that was mixed weather meaning that rain was a constant concern throughout the shoot and became significant on our return home drive. ISO 800; 1/500 sec @ f / 16.
