Skagit Valley Tulip Festival, 3 of 3

The downside of making a day trip to the Skagit Valley from Sequim is that the schedule – and thus the light – is subject to the ferry crossings from Port Townsend to Whidbey Island. And this, regrettably, meant no soft angles of morning light nor honeyed evening kiss on the flowers. It’s a day trip worth making and as we left we began planning a “next time” in which there would be an overnight stay that would allow pictures at either end of the day.

  1. I’ve discovered that a day trip is always lacking in enough time to savor the environment. Staying overnight seems like a reasonable plan to take advantage of the light. The close-up is a sneak preview of the beauty of the place.

  2. pretty pretty pretty..
    without the mountains in the background (imagine more fields and a train) it could be the netherlands!
