Spring is finally settling in around here– I can’t help but photograph every flower I come across because it means that the warmer weather is finally here!
I was out on my run this morning, when I passed by these tulips planted by the marquee outside of the local elementary school. Part of me wanted to stop and take a cell phone shot, but these flowers deserved to be properly photographed, so after I got home and showered, I headed back out with the camera. I must have been quite the sight laying there in the middle of the planter on the side of a semi-busy road! But it was so worth it– and they say that mid-day sun is horrible to photograph in… I think it worked in this case– these tulips look like they are glowing! (I know it looks like I over-saturated them in Photoshop or something, but I barely did anything to them– this was really their color!)
I love the patriotic flag in the background 🙂
