Gas Works Park from Lake Union

Good morning all – It’s Easter and image of the week day.

I captured so many awesome image this week. Some from Seattle. Some from Skagit Valley Tulip Festival. Some from beautiful people getting their outdoor portraits done. Absolutely wonderful photograph week.

So, I had many choices for today’s image and I will stick with a Seattle image.

This artistic photograph was captured while aboard the “Ride the Duck” ride. It was so much fun. As I mentioned in an earlier post I had my Mom here for a visit. So we hit up Seattle and specifically the amphibious “Ride the Duck.”

Our captain was Tuck and Roll. He was so hilarious, full of spunk, craziness, and played music appropriate clips throughout the ride. The ride lasts about an hour and half to two hours. I completely recommend “Ride the Duck” to locals and tourist. It is a NOT MISS activity while in Seattle.

This Gas Works Park image was captured from Lake Union aboard the Duck. A perspective you don’t always see in photograph. After processing in HDR I liked the artistic version with this golden hue added. Many have commented on the image and like it a lot.  I hope you like it a lot as well.

Tulip Town

My Mom was in town and we got out to see the tulips at Tulip Town in Skagit Valley, Washington.

Tulip TownTulip Town is a tulip farm located in Skagit, Washington. Each year they participate in the Skagit Valley Tulip Festival.

Each year, it seems, the tulip fields are different. This year felt odd, as there were not as many fields to visit. So, my photo opportunity was limited. This plus the fact that my lens was super dirty and I only noticed it after I returned home and downloaded my images.

The flowers were beautiful as alway and the majority of my images were a bust this year. And due to the fact that the tulips only last about two weeks I may not be able to head back out to the fields this year.

Anyway… please enjoy this one image that turned out best.
