Photographer's Note

When you are in the tulip fields, you are in a world of pure colour, almost overwhelming in it's abundance and intensity. The area around La Conner is well known for growing flowers, especially tulips, and every April they have a tulip festival. Early in the morning the serious photographers are out, raiding the fields for good shots while the light is interesting and before too many people get there. In this case, I was out in the field taking some pictures when I looked around and saw this lady nearby. I just turned and shot very quickly and caught her in the act (ever noticed how when photographers are at work they resemble hunters stalking their prey?). A second later I took another shot but she had already straightened and was walking away. After all the careful composititions and painstaking attention to detail for the classic tulip field shots, this spontaneous effort turned out to be my favourite shot from the whole trip.
