My wife's siblings and mother live in the Seattle area. While visiting there last month, we stopped to take a look at the tulips.

Yes, actually I learned something from this shoot. I never noticed red colors being overexposed on film in the past, but the sensor of the D2X does over expose reds. I had to drop the exposure by -.7 stops to epose for the reds. Fields of yellow or pink tulips did not need as much exposure compensation.

Wow thats a bouquet and a half:)))
Beautiful
Thanks Gale, it is quite a sight to see!

I've only seen them a couple times on my visits, but this was the first time there was some sunlight and no wind.
