Araluen Tulips

Hi Everyone,

This is a shot of a Tulip that I managed to capture at Araluen last year.   I have always meant to head up to Araluen when the Tulips are out in full force but for one reason or another I’ve never made it.    Well after spending only 5mins at Araluen I had managed to capture a whole stack of images, it was just that good.   The team who look after Araluen certainly do a fantastic job and I for one will be back next year to try and capture the Tulips a little earlier in the season this time.

Has anyone else shot at Araluen?   Do they have other flower exhibitions at all?   I’m guessing most of us have been up to Kings Park at one time or another to capture the flowers up there.

      Hi Chloe,

      Thanks for that. 🙂 I’ve got a few more to come, just got to get around to processing them! Did you get any good photos this weekend? Its 42 degrees here at the moment so I’m off down to Cottesloe to get some shots of the beach packed out.

    Hey Jamie, Great shot, nice and sharp. I think I would like a bit shallower DoF, maybe thats a bit cliche, Looks good anyway.

      HI Dan,

      Thanks for that. I thought this tulip might look a little better standing out using colours rather than DOF.
