PHOTOSET 33
"Skagit Valley and Salish Sea"
Tulip fields, cows, tide flats, islands, lighthouses, ships, and more
APRIL 14, 2013


This photoset is from a 2h10min, 296-mile spring afternoon aerial adventure over the Skagit Valley and Salish Sea (San Juan Islands). On this unique departure from mountain aerial photography, John and I flew around and photographed a spectacular display of tulip fields, cows, tide flats, islands, lighthouses, ships, and much much more.

The flight path is shown to the right. (This flight line is made with actual GPS data.)
