I refuse to conform to the traditional ideas of Skagit Valley tulip photography. I decided that my personal spin on the tulips would be to capture their reflections rather than the actual flower itself…well, save the final photo.
If you happen to be one of my readers outside the state of Washington, here’s a link to some history about the Skagit Valley Tulip Festival.

I think they’re all great! It would be hard to pick just one! So creative :).
Great photos Jolene!
Thank you, Aisling!
Nicely done Jolene, love the third image down.
Interesting…that one was actually my favorite too, David. 🙂
I definitely like your spin of capturing the tulips’ reflections. The first photo, however, is my favorite. The rows of tulips seem to stretch out a very long way and the reflection in the middle of the row adds another dimension of depth. WONDERFUL!
Thanks for such a positive comment! Flowers aren’t my normal subject, so I’m glad I captured a few decent shots.
Wow! I’m speechless! These are so beautiful!
I like all the different angles of the first three shots. Really interesting.
Thanks, CM! Someone said looking at the flowers from the different angle made it feel like they were looking at them from below the ground.
Very creative shots, you non-conformer. 😉 Love the first and second shot.
I loved your tulip pics as well, Emily! I hear the color will be even better in the next couple of weeks…now if only it would stop raining…
Good shots – my favorite is the first one.
I love the first shot most because of the reflection in the water….Awesome..
The 4th one will come next…fantastic blur…
Thanks! I appreciate the feedback…I don’t normally take a lot of pictures of flowers.
Awesome Jolene! They’re all great, but I love the first one. The shadow from the line of tulips on the other side of the bank hits just perfectly above the line of reflected tulips, as if it’s the reflection casting the shadow. It almost makes it look like the reflected tulips aren’t reflections at all, but are just real tulips growing upside down.
Thanks, Jim! I think the first one is the popular choice!
