“While conducting a workshop at Coupeville Arts Center on Whidbey Island we found a grove of madrona trees, which have a unique color and texture that is interesting to photograph. This shot of a flowering madrona tree with its spectacular red bark is one of my favorites.”

Hasselblad Xpan; 30mm lens.
