Field of Dreams

Field of Dreams

We unexpectedly took a drive yesterday and headed northeast to the Cascades, then west out to the tulip fields of Skagit Valley. It was a very beautiful and relaxing day. The tulips were at their peak bloom and the colorful fields were not only a feast for the eyes, but very peaceful. There was a soft spring breeze and quiet all around. This lovely woman passed in front of me and I just had to capture the image of her sari floating with the breeze against all that color.

I think everyone I know has been down to La Connor to see the flowers in bloom. But in all these years I've never been.

Those colors are breathtaking.

Saris themselves are brillant in colour and form. Pairing that with the beautiful tulips is a great visual image.

Timing is everything isn't it? Being at the right place at the right time is what turns an otherwise simple photo of flowers into this. Beautiful shot Kim.

Virginia said...

Oh this is an exquisite image Kim. Bravo. THis might just be one of your very best, but I"m sure I've said that a hundred times already. Regardless, I take my hat off to you!

We may have been standing next to each other taking pictures of the tulips yesterday, because we saw that same lady during our visit. What a great shot it is, Kim!

What a fantastic prize capture this is! I'll bet she felt right at home too, amidst all those beautiful colors.

Wow, I love this shot. The slight motion of her hand with the blowing sari gives it extra interest. Just beautiful!

This is unforgettable . . . it should be on the cover of National Geographic at the very least. What a thrill to have her come into your image.

Love the delicious tulips and the saree clad Indian woman! No wonder you have such a huge following! I'm a new CDP guy; I just started an EAGAN daily photo. Minnesota greetings
