I found these picture in my archive, not red color tulips, all white of color, perhaps a less colorfully as the previous pictures of my with red tulips, but yet pleasant for look at.
Also here I use a tripod.
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia;
Tulips cannot be grown in the open in tropical climates, as they require a cold winter season to grow successfully. Manipulation of the tulip's growing temperature can, however, allow growers to "force" tulips to flower earlier than they normally would.
Some historical cultivars have had a striped, "feathered", "flamed", or variegated flower, as in the illustration. While some modern varieties also display multicoloured patterns, this results from a natural change in the upper and lower layers of pigment in the tulip flower. Historical variegated varieties- such as those admired in the Dutch tulipomania gained their delicately feathered patterns from a viral infection. The mosaic virus is carried by peach potato aphids, Myzus persicae, an insect common in European gardens of the seventeenth century, in which peach trees were often a prominent feature. While the virus produces fantastically beautiful flowers, it also causes the plant to sicken and die slowly. Today, it has been almost completely eradicated from growers' fields.
I hope that you enjoy

Hello John, I liked the purity of this beautiful composition with the white tulips extending towards infinity. Best regards, Tolga
cbrman (21645) 2010-10-10 23:40
Des tulipes blanches. Voici une couleur qui change du rouge habituel. Perspective intéressante mais dont le point de fuite est mal placé. L'horizon est trop centré et donne une image qui manque d'accroche et de punch.
Guenther (10915) 2010-10-10 23:42
Good Morning John,
I like a lot this vastness which dosn't exist where I live... the perspective view of the countless white tulips is very impressive!
PS: How are the invironmental problems handled in this area, is the water quality still acceptable?
Have a nice day
dip (23822) 2010-10-11 0:05
not always red color tulips,the white color looks also very beautiful :)
good point of view,amazing perspective!
maloutim (9637) 2010-10-11 0:09
Hi John !
Excellent POV on this field of not so usual white tulips ! Very good perspective, with the composition forming like a triangle.
Interesting note about the growing of tulips and the particulars which give them their colour etc...
I was once amazed to see a photo of wild tulips in the Iranian gallery of TE ! It corroborates what you say about the plant needing a cold winter for it to bloom in spring.
I'll add the photo in WS, under the copyright of the author of course.
jjcordier (78388) 2010-10-11 0:17
Une très belle perspective créée par ce champ de tulipes qui semble infini. Peut-être aurais-tu pu réduire un peu le ciel mais la photo me plait beaucoup comme cela.

You must have timed this for us down under as our tulips are out now, but not is massive fields like this - just in parks and gardens including plenty in my own garden. Most of Australia is unsuited to tulips so just those of us in highland areas can enjoy them.
A good POV with the angled lines and great colour.
pauloog (11747) 2010-10-11 0:51
Ik ben eerlijk gezegd niet zo een fan van tulpen en van tulpenveldenfoto's, de kleuren zijn vaak te schreeuwerig naar mijn zin, maar dit is een pareltje van helderheid en lijnenspel.
SWEETFREEDOM (23378) 2010-10-11 1:01
very pleasant picture great colors and d.o.f.
bukitgolfb301 (37524) 2010-10-11 1:02
Hello my dear John
Another great masterpiece indeed! Perfectly deep and sharp focus in the detail and bright clear prsentation due to F.18. Congratulation on your greart job and thanks for sharing, have a good start of a new week!
JCG (35129) 2010-10-11 1:43
Avec ce beau ciel bleu, ce champs de tulipes blanches ne peut que mieux ressortir surtout quand la lumière est bonne comme ici sur cette photo. Je ne sais pas si c'est ramassé manuellement, mais si c'est le cas, c'est du boulot, compte tenu de la surface !!! Une belle et lumineuse photo, merci John.
Avec toutes mes amitiés et une très bonne semaine,

très jolie rangé de tulipe.

Have a good weeek, mijn vriend.
Cafalex (924) 2010-10-11 3:25
Wonderfull lines of tulip in the sun. The expostion is perfect thanks to the excellent dynamic of the 5d mkII captor and I also pretty much like the blue sky with the ghostly like pink clouds.
dkmurphys (52201) 2010-10-11 3:58
A wonderful geometric composition. Could be anything, the texture doesn't really matter. Well seen landscape.
Have a great day.
Bluejeans (64249) 2010-10-11 5:02
Ola John ,
Beleza de foto com estas linhas de tulipas brancas , a profundidade de foto ficou fantástica , boa diagonal , parabéns!!
Um abraço Gonçalo
pierrefonds (59790) 2010-10-11 5:42
The rows of tulips are sending my eyes toward the trees in the background which is giving depth to the composition. The point of view is showing the details and colors of the field of tulips. There is a good contrast between the colors of the tulips and the colors of the sky. have a nice day.
kordinator (19856) 2010-10-11 8:27
Great composition,perfect framed.
Wonderfull lines of tulip in the sun.
The expostion is perfect.
Great depth of image.
Colors,light,sharpness,clarity are all excellent.
Great job my friends.

janusz2054 (2) 2010-10-11 8:40
Wonderful composition with the beatiful white flower, lovely tulips in a great DOF, very good light management.
bobocortis (15988) 2010-10-11 10:23
Deep perspective, perfect lines geometry, beautiful sky with pink clouds.
UlfE (14641) 2010-10-11 11:12
Wonderful colours and very pleasant lighting. Also very interesting diagonal line. Personally, I would perhaps have chosen a slightly different POV. Nevertheless, it is a very attractive photo. TFS and have fine week!
jlbrthnn (76037) 2010-10-11 13:16
I like convergence towards the horizon. The flat ground adds to the spectacular side of this field of tulips. The photograph is balanced and agreeably lit and coloured. Congratulations.
Have a good evening
clic (15910) 2010-10-11 15:22
Thanks for your visit, John.
An allover impression of purity is convied in this endless field featuring white over green in a breath-taking funneled view, under the soft blue skies.
I imagine the feast for bees and wasps!
Thanks for this odorant piece of The Netherlands.
My best regards.
edge (6765) 2010-10-11 21:12
Hello John. I have seen your photos from time to time, and you do a great job presenting your shots. I am always impressed with flowers, and tulips are always lovely as are yours here. It has been many years since I was in Holland, but I have some colorful slides taken in th Keukenhof. NOt sure of the spelling. I was in your country attending the World's Fair long ago and have shots of the Atonium as well. Regards, Roger. BTW, Great lens. I have the junior version with the f4 with IS.
batalay (36719) 2010-10-11 22:07
How appropriate to see a photo from last spring, six months ago. As usual, it is perfectly composed, one of the iconic logos of Holland. Warm regards, my friend.
danos (89887) 2010-10-12 1:14
nice the creative perspective from the white tulips cultivated in the fields that lead-in the eye on the far end of the horizon.Perhaps an other lens to make the scene having more sharpness especially on the middle until the depth.
Have a good day,Danos
Cretense (68695) 2010-10-12 3:55
Beautiful nature photography, beautiful tulip fields, great lines and "geometry", impressive perspective! Great use of the square frame and composition, huge depth of field! Flawless light management, wonderful colours!
Muse (34942) 2010-10-12 4:23
Une très belle compo et beaucoup de profondeur.
Tulip is one of my favourite flower:-)
Le ciel bleu contraste bien avec les fleurs blanches.
ymrk (14955) 2010-10-12 6:33
white tulips,red tulips...:) Euphonic words :)
So succesful work!Very great angle of vision with depth!
jusninasirun (17162) 2010-10-12 6:41
This is too good John. Please take me there so that I can lie and take a low pov shots at those tulip. The view is amazing and the framing creates interesting depth away from the symmetry.
Thanks for sharing and have a nice day,
barrufeto_77 (28886) 2010-10-12 7:45
Excellent picture. The "pattern" in the tulips create a lovely graphism.
abmdsudi (46194) 2010-10-12 8:45
Very eye catching and wonderful field of Tulips with perfect compostion. A wonderful contrast between the two colours and I like the straight converging lines that end up in infinity, a long endless perspective. Superb clarity and sharpness, Excellent rich color saturation and fine contrast. Top quality image, Congrats. TFS
carper (96) 2010-10-12 10:45
mooie voorjaars foto John.
de compositie is perfect genomen. mooie lijnen, goede balans erg fraai genomen. erg fraai John.
leo61 (0) 2010-10-12 12:34
I did not expect tulips in october ,but it`s a pleasure to see this one.Maybe a higher horizon would be better for the composition ,but I like these diagonals and the contrast with the sky.
mauarg (1758) 2010-10-12 13:19
Awsome pov in the tulip field! All the lines are incredibly beaultiful ! Hope to see also the colorful tulips !

Bonjour, mon cher ami John,
Excellente prise de vue laissant une perspective de ces plants de tulipes rejoindre l'horizon.
Tout est beau dans cette composition, et il est bien difficile de détacher notre regard de l'ensemble.

Greetings from Poland my Friend!
Of course, I understood :)
raszid62 (18585) 2010-10-13 16:18
This wonderful field of white tulips, all the same variety and hue. Lines formed by headlands are amazingly geometrical. Great composition.
Tukan-T5 (4317) 2010-10-13 22:09
expanse of white tulips look like a field covered with the first snow.
Beautiful view from the magnificent vista
pablominto (53746) 2010-10-13 23:16
What a pleasant spring memory..!
Soon the ground will be white here too, but not from tulips I fear hehehe...
Amazing perspective as the lines point to infinity creating this interesting geometry!

ciakgiak (30423) 2010-10-15 4:24
Hello dear John,
you are the master of this kind of photos, but not only!
The perspective created by the white tulips is really great, their contrast with the blue sky is very elegant, and I like a lot the square format and the excellent quality.
Have a nice week end you too.
s_lush (16134) 2010-10-15 4:48
Although the scene with tulips is rather typical for Netherlands, I am glad to see such beautiful flowers in your picture. The plantation with so many white tulips looks wonderful against the nicely clouded sky. Perfectly well captured!
TopGeo (38208) 2010-10-15 7:26
This a wonderful scene of field of white tulips, The long ground adds to the spectacular side of this field of tulips. Wonderful colour and very pleasant lighting. the framing clear detail and bright lines The view is amazing and the presentation also . Congratulations
siolaw (38292) 2010-10-15 7:30
Superb light and colours and a strong, eye pulling perspective.
I like also the subtle colour variations in the sky.
Waylim (25368) 2010-10-15 11:58
A Beautiful photo as always, a nice remembrance of spring, as we are marching into the falls and winter. Looking foward to see all those winter wonderland shots of your. Thanks for this cheerful image full of liveliness.
agulberk (3794) 2010-10-15 12:53
Merhaba Dear john
extraordinary beauty of tulips, wonder, system and order, decorated and ornamented with the person who made and maintain the skills of tulips spine and your photography in its art come together in this great photo output

Perfectly framed shot. Also it has good colour contrast.
chrisnet (21870) 2010-10-16 1:51
Hi my friend,
I like these good diagonal lines, nice perspective effect and excellent sharpness, a good job indeed.
macjake (60580) 2010-10-16 8:57
still very pleasant, yes indeed.
its great that you broke the pattern by including the dirt walkway to the far right, creates a needed contrast and variance.
lovely colours, compo, and depth
the blue/pink sky is a bonus!
lpi (4857) 2010-10-16 12:43
Superbe ce champ de tulipe avec une jolie perspective.
danyy (0) 2010-10-17 0:19
un paysage que je connais et que j'apprécie beaucoup. Ces champs de tulipes sont uniques au monde.
josepmarin (57883) 2010-10-17 4:41
the asymmetric point of lines escape offers a fantastic perspective of the rows of tulips towards the right side of the picture, with a great graphical balance due to the organisation of the composition and to the good framing.
It is a very attractive composition, with a nice luminosity and a good chromatic level.
anesugur (18789) 2010-10-17 10:28
This is a great photo.
The light and colors are superb with excellent sharpness and POV.
boa (6265) 2010-10-17 12:50
it would be a pleasure to see the tulips in Netherlands some day after seen your pictures. It is a wonderful perspective captured from a good Pov. The light and colors are fine also,well done !
Have a nice evening.
Matthew-Watt (5956) 2010-10-18 4:17
A beutiful view of that most famous of Dutch flowers under a magical blue sky. The lines created by this neat planting looks very good in this photo, pointing towards an unseen vanishing point. I bet there was a wonderful spring perfume in the air here. My parents were in Holland last year and told me of the beautiful tulips and flower markets this great country had to show. A wonderful place.
ruisc_pt (10892) 2010-10-18 13:29
Every uploaded photo from you is a real lesson.
I wonder why did you use a tripod with 1/250 s time shutter..?
Selmik (3299) 2010-10-18 22:19
Good evening John,
simple, but stunning photograph. Like the colours, perspective, created by lines of flowers, clarity of the scene and sky, blue with a bit of the pink tones.
Wonderful and calm scene.
adramad (40178) 2010-10-19 4:11
The tulip fields are always a splendid image to watch.
In this case a very well chosen POV to that path on the right side gives a great perspective to the image, the uniformity of white color is very beautiful in contrast to the nice sky.
Elegant frame to enclose the beautiful picture, great light for these beautiful colors.
Have a nice day. Best regards.
yquem46 (38750) 2010-10-19 7:00
I'm very late with this superb one
No comments that has not been said yet, just add my voice to the long list of compliments
And, I'm pretty sure that there will be some more behind me
jemaflor (88767) 2010-10-19 9:39
Great perspective and depth effect with all these lines trhough the flowers fields, well captured, interesting and photogenic place.
Juntas (7960) 2010-10-19 15:18
Hi John. I remember seeing tulips of all colors but do not remember to see these whites ones. Composition is great with all the lines converging to the same point. Stong but well managed light; great sharpness and colors and a very stong sense of depth. Great work.
yedirenk (11244) 2010-10-19 21:38
Hi dear John,
a wonderful painting with white tulips from springtime..great depth and framing..very impressive ambiance..sharpness and light are eye catcher.superb presentation..TFS
ikeharel (62081) 2010-10-20 5:34
An endless field of Tulips, John. Good Dof on image.
The white Tulips are as fabulous as the red ones to my oppinion.
Well collected scene,
vasilpro (41091) 2010-10-20 10:32
Wonderful diagonal composition, great DOF, very nice POV, very good contrast, lovely colors, excellent light management, beautiful field full of white tulips.
Have a nice evening, Vasilis.
gunbud (34066) 2010-10-20 21:28
What a wonderful wide view of this field of tulips that contrast so brilliantly with the vivid blue sky
Great depth, clarity of colors and sharpness of details to this lovely image.
jmdias (58502) 2010-10-23 14:48
once I saw a tulip in the mountains of rio de janeiro, it was very expensive and created in that region.
very nice this vision of the white flowers covering the fields. perfect diagonal lines and light. well done
Angshu (56462) 2010-10-27 11:25
Fine deep converging perspective of the field of tulips, converging in the horizon. The path through the field also compliments the perspective. Good colour contrast betwen the white flowers & the green & earth tones, under the blue sky. Good work!
It seems that the Beta has stopped working, and those who have made their comments in this version, not be reflected in the current.
paninho (2931) 2010-10-29 2:19
Wouaw, la profondeur de cette photo est tout simplement époustouflante!!
hardyuno (4650) 2010-10-31 2:45
a great geometrical pov of the tulips under a fine coloured sky. The lines are given a perfect depth to the image. Very well done, TFs
Have a fine weekend
gmg (4202) 2010-11-04 10:29
Hi John! Very nice perspective with this majestic tulip fields rendered in all its beauty
quillo (11850) 2010-11-22 11:27
Hola John :
Very interesting and beautiful this capture of
the fields of farming of the tulips,
I like the contrasts of color and the depth,
specialist (1181) 2010-11-27 12:41
an eye soothing composition with the 'less' colorful but still wonderful tulips John. depth, pov and light management are spotless as well, compliments from ankara,
PaulVDV (24191) 2010-11-27 14:40
Wat ik hierin vooral mooi vind, is de eindeloosheid.
De eindeloosheid van het vlakke land (hetgeen we in Brabant niet kennen) en van de tulpenvelden met daarin dan de éénvormigheid van allemaal mooie witte bloemen die helemaal open zijn om te genieten van de stralende zon onder de prachtige blauwe lucht.
Goed dat je er de scheiding tussen twee velden uiterst rechts bijgenomen hebt. Dit vergroot volgens mij het gevoel van eindeloosheid.
Vele groeten, Paul
Nard (6972) 2010-12-03 13:53
Avec ce froid et cette neige j'avais envie de critiquer une photo un peu plus chaude. celle ci est particulièrement réussi auusi bien au niveau de la lumière que de la qualité. J'aime bien ce blanc qui semble partir vers l'infini pour rejoindre le ciel
foozi (7101) 2010-12-04 20:16
excellent perspective created by the bed of flowers in superb contrasting colours.
The blue sky and the white tulips are stunningly viewed.
Very effective shot.
subhendu_bagchi (25973) 2010-12-05 3:33
what a great scene with the rows of tulips. Like the presentation using a mic POV. Like also the depth and colour contrast of it. Great work. Tfs.
Have a nice time.
sacimar (26201) 2011-01-27 4:40
this is a beautiful image, the perspective with the white tulips creates an interesting visual effect, well seen,
ourania (35852) 2013-05-03 3:58
such a captivating, vast and vibrant view! The darting perspectives are irresistible and there's a superb sense of space. It's amazing how you've managed to moderate the luminosity of the white tulips so effectively capturing the lovely natural patterns and colours so clearly up to the very distant background. I love the detail of the shadows on the path at the bottom right hand corner. A striking and mesmerising impression. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a lovely day,
mcmtanyel (16001) 2013-08-10 6:37
Perspective lines created by beautiful flowers. I can just imagine that this field is covered with snow. Did you know that the tulip got to the Netherlands from Turkey? Turks brought it to Anatolia from its homeland Khorasan in their migration to the west.
annjackman (20701) 2013-08-10 6:47
I always enjoy the flat landscape of tulip beds. The straight lines give such graphic appeal. The white tulips are very nice with the blue sky tinged with pink.
A quality image as usual from you - excellent!
Kind Regards, Ann
Miguel82 (26528) 2013-09-12 5:07
I like so much your pictures of tulips fields in Zeeland John, they are vanilla color and shining on the sun
Deep field of vision, neat image with excellent colors
p.s : I can't write reply to forum messages now, can you activate it or help me to solve that malfunction?
