Annual trip to the Wooden Shoe Tulip Festival

Posted by on May 17, 2014 in Places | 0 comments

Each year I make at least a couple of trips to the Wooden Shoe Tulip Farm for their annual Tulip Festival.  It’s clearly one of the most popular places for photographers to go in the springtime.

Mike and I took the first trip this year during the week to avoid the crowds. It was so great to be able to photograph during sunrise with very few people there.  I will definitely go only on the weekdays in the future. As more and more people are buying cameras and enjoying photography, the people arriving during sunrise and sunset has really increased.  So much so, that if it weren’t for hanging out with photographer friends, I wouldn’t have enjoyed it because the crowds were just too much for my taste.

I didn’t take as many photos as I have in the past, even though I made two trips there.  Here’s a few of my favorites.
