Tulip Festival
Apr 22, 2013

Trying out my new A99 at the Skagit Valley Tulip Festival, near Mount Vernon, WA.  We visited a mix of both arranged gardens and tulip fields. I'm not that interested in macro photography of flowers, but the scenery on some of the gardens was very beautiful, and seeing the number of tulips in the field was pretty impressive.

Of course, some of the scenes were just begging for the panorama shots. The sun still had not come out for the day and really livened up the colors yet, but it was still pretty fantastic to see.

On the way home, we stopped by at one of the casinos to get dinner, and I noticed a Sony store across the parking lot. While browsing, I noticed a refurbished Sony 50mm f1.4, something I had been considering to replace my old Minolta version to see how the AF-D works. So one more shot with that using the Sunset scene on the ferry ride home.
