Wooden Shoe Tulip Farm - Woodburn, OR
This past weekend, on Easter Sunday, my partner and I, along with some friends, went to the Wooden Shoe Tulip Farm in Woodburn, OR.
My partner and I go almost every year, and even though neither of us is particularly crazy about tulips, I find I really do love them during springtime...and honestly, how often do you get to see a floral spectacle like this! In past years, I've not really paid much attention to the different varieties available...as I wasn't planning on adding tulips until I had the borders figured out...but I realized last year that I might as well just plant some...especially after seeing every other yard in the neighborhood full of such glorious color! This year, the winner by a landslide was Princess Irene (no snickering, please)!
On a side note, one of the friends who went along is just getting into photography and wanted a few tips. I think I told her initially it was so pretty out there that it'd be hard to NOT take a good picture. I realized, however, once we arrived that the exact opposite is true...there is so much going on that it is more important than ever to edit and find a focal point...trying to really capture the entirety of the fields in perfect detail would result is an image that was overwhelming and busy beyond belief!
