The best part of late winter is tulips begin appearing. They are one of my favorite flowers, though they aren't around for as long as I'd like them to be. (Roses, for instance, can hang around this area for half the year.) But because of that tulips symbolize the return of spring to me. New life is here, and many other flowers will soon appear as well. Oh, and the amazing Wooden Shoe tulip farm will soon open. Can't wait for that! So below are two quick galleries, both shot with my Canon 6D and 100mm 2.8 lens. No images were edited in any manner.
First Purchased (Before the Flowers Really Have Opened)
After a Week (Just Before the Petals Begin to Fall)
Nice person in Portland, Oregon, and beyond.
