April is a beautiful month in Vancouver (I know, I'm late posting this). You can start feeling the summer around the corner, but also you can start seeing the beauty too. No more gray, rain rain go away. This beauty is called Tulips.
As we drove for about 1.5 hrs, we ended into this part of town that in my opinion it should be called Tulips, BC instead of Agassiz. It was sunny, then cloudy, rainy, cold, windy but at the end it was all worth it. Vancouver has a lot of areas where you can enjoy the look of these flowers, for less of a commute, but this year we decided to go a little farther for the fun to explore.
The view was amazing. Miles and miles of multi-tonal colors waiting for all kind of visitors to appear in front of them. Waiting there, patiently.
It was difficult to find the perfect moment to photograph this area when you have an impatient toddler who not only didn't want to climb out of the stroller, but also wanted to run into the middle of the field and rip all the flowers.
I still managed to sneak in here and there as people obstructed my key spots, but I ended up happy regardless.
One thing that I am trying lately with my Nikkor 35mm 1.8G is the beauty of close ups. I know it's not a macro lens, but I am way happier that I can capture these pictures way better than my old 50mm 1.8. Way happier now.
Somehow there were a lot of good pictures.It was very hard culling them but I managed to narrow them down to 60. Post-processing them was so much fun.
Do you have tulips in your area too?
