Not being a morning person doesn't stop me from trekking an hour north to shoot the sunrise at the Skagit County Tulip Festival.

Smith Tower, which at one point was the tallest building west of the Mississippi, is at left. Best viewed large. Captured using a Fujifilm X-T1. Processed in Lightroom and Aurora HDR.
