Each April there are fields and fields of tulips in Skagit Valley - about an hour north of Seattle. Cold, wet weather delayed the blooms this year, so there weren't many days to see them. The tulips are actually grown for their bulbs - a colorful sight.

What a beautiful picture! It called my attention on the gallery. The point of view is very well chosen! This kind of tulip is so beautiful! Here, our tulips have not appeared yet, but now their leaves are growing quickly. I think we will have the flowers soon.
Thanks for sharing,

I admit that I am not such a fan of tulips, which I find often unnatural with their vivid colours. But here they have been rendered in a beautiful way, fortunately without screaming colours, and the barn behind adds a wonderful element.

Pleasing composition with adequate lighting and ample depth of field!
The color of the tulips are soft and warm.
The beautiful wooden house on one side balanced well with the trees against that blue sky.
Well done. Regards.

J'aime beaucoup le cadrage de cette grange et quel superbe premier plan de tulipes.Le ciel est également très esthétique avec son dégradé.

Hello Claudia. The photo fits perfectly into the current season. The sight of this tulip field is wonderful. The barn fits perfectly into the overall composition. Even the intense colors I really liked it. Very nice. Regards, wolfgang.

Encore une magnifique composition, avec cette belle vieille grange en arrière plan. Les couleurs des tulipes, bordées de blanc, sont superbes.
