Orange City- northwest Iowa's Tulip Capitol- a great place to visit. This is the third year I've been able to visit while the tulips are in bloom and once again I wasn't disappointed. The variety of tulips planted each year is just amazing, I can't even imagine the amount of work put into the planting and organizing the event. This year fellow photographer (www.danielruf.typepad.com) Dan Ruf and I braved the winds and rain to see if we could capture any images in this kind of weather- and the answer is yes!
It would have been a lot easier to just say you can't capture flower images when it's this nasty out but all we had to do is make a few adjustments in the camera and be patient. We spent about three hours enjoying what we had found and I think we learned a lot in the process.
I hope you find time to visit the beautiful Orange City area, I think you too will find it a great little spot. Thanks for stopping by and have a great week.
