This pano was taken at the Swan Island Dahlias farm in Canby, Oregon.

I heard things were about 2 weeks behind this year …. but this weekend has always been peak for this place. If you are close to Portland, Oregon get over there. Very early is best … sunrise is good because the light’s right, the wind is usually calm, the tourists aren’t there yet and the morning dew adds a lot to your images!

DahliaFest is this weekend. Living up here now near Seattle and not being able to get there in 1/2 hr or so… I wish I was going to be there.
