Skagit Valley Tulip Trip - Seattle


Is there anyone in the Seattle area that would be interested in meeting for a shoot in the Skagit Valley this month for tulip shots? I have lived here most of my life and never driven up for that Festival but would love to make it a photo trip for some members. Email me if you are interested!

  Well, I won't be heading up there for the tulips themselves, but the airport is hosting a Fly-In on the 28th. I'll be there photographing the airplanes and flying events. If the weather cooperates I'll actually participate in the spot-landing contest. :D

  That's on my list of things to do this month. I have odd days off, though. What day did you have in mind? I'm in Tacoma.

Hi Tamera,
Its a bit of a haul from Portland, but I want to thank you for putting the idea in my head. I found one in Woodburn, Or
http://www.woodenshoe.com/springshow.html
and will go there tomorrow AM and then on to Silver Falls http://www.oregonstateparks.org/park_211.php
for a full day of picture taking pleasure. Your gallery is also very enjoyable to visit.

  Bob I'm planning on trying to head up there on the 13th of this month. I'm in Federal Way. Thank you Carlton for the kind words regarding my gallery. Woodburn is very lovely. You should find some wonderful places to shoot.

  For some reason, I thought you were farther away. If that's a Friday, I work. Maybe I can wangle a deal with someone at work. A weekday would be much better than a weekend to go. Don't cross me off your list yet....

  Nope just right next door Bob. It is a Friday and I chose a weekday hoping it wouldn't be so crowded. The are offering plane rides over the fields this year as well!! Just let me know.

  I WISH I could come too, Tammy! I would LOVE to see that! I've seen tulip fields in Oregon but have never been to a festival and I've never been able to photograph them.

Beautiful photos, Carlton!
