Thanks Rondec!

Yes, I used a tripod and the lens is the DA 18-55.

It would probably be better with some soft music, to replace the wind blowing into the mike, but I thought the field spoke for itself. (-:

Wow, what a beautiful place to take photos and video. I sure wish we had something like that around here.

Yes, Tuner571, it is gorgeous out here in the Pacific Northwest! I spent 4 1/2 years in your neighboring state of Indiana during college. I enjoyed my time, but was anxious to get back out west.

If you ever get the chance to visit in June, July or August, it is really great.......rarely raining, and will most likely be in the 70s or 80s, without much humidity.

Thats cool, I know Ohio is a beautiful state, but I really want to head out west someday. One of my first stops in going to be Yosemite, it looks absolutly stunning!

A note regarding the wind, cut off a small 2-3cm piece of foam from a kitchen sponge and place it over the mic holes during recording, it'll drastically reduce the sound of the wind blowing over the mic but wont make the audio any quieter(:

Lovely video, would make fantastic photos too I imagine. The tulips are very lovely, I'm also planning a trip to the flower-yard next weekend.
