Photographer Dean Forbes tells us about this mellow yellow image: The image was taken in the Skagit Valley of Washington state on March 20. I don’t know the name of the variety. I used a 80-200mm telephoto zoom lens set at 80mm and cropped the image to eliminate an obvious horizon to help give the “endless” effect.
The area farms grow daffodils and tulips for the cut flower industry and are a major tourist draw. The valley is about an hour north of Seattle.
