This picture has been taken during a visit to one of the most beautiful rural areas out of my area, 6km about the Netherlands border, one hour before a thunderstorm.
Aardenburg a small city with a very nice history.
The tulip is the flower that is always good. Tulips are not too big, not too small, not too romantic, not too chic, not so sloppy.
Tulips symbolize true love, but of course this varies by color. See why the message of the articles below to find out the different tulips and learn the language tulips.
Red tulips are my favorite flowers, I know perhaps will you say again tulips but I love tulips.
Red tulips are most strongly associated with love, compared to other tulips. Giving red tulips is an expression of love and affection for others (in the romantic sense). Red tulips are a symbol of true love.
The color red is strong color that can be associated with warmth, love heat, but with fire and blood. As it is said, red is both Cupid and the Devil (two characters who are both associated with red), or you can use red on two sides.
The name tulip is derived from the Ottoman Empire. The Ottomans wore turbans with tulips on it. The name of the tulip was then distracted by the Europeans from the Persian word meaning turban meant. Moreover, the underlying meaning that which does not effect the tulip symbol stands for. The tulip symbolizes generally because perfect love. But the tulips are different colors, making it difficult for a general meaning to the tulip.

Hi my dear friend John,
soon, 100.000 points on TE and event if it has no importance, it's a great day for all of us when you will reach this fabulous number.
Very nice place with billions of tulips like in Lisse I visited a few days ago.
Magic red color under a colorless sky, but all is captured natural way.
My best regards.

Ces champs de tulipes rouges sont un régal pour les yeux et tu sais les mettre en image de la plus belle des façons.
bj40 (6) 2011-05-03 0:49
Hi John,Again you show us the one wonders to be found in the countryside of your area.I like your use of perspective with the lines of tulips lead the eye towards a vanishing point on the horizon, excellent work as always. Thanks Tom.
annjackman (19937) 2011-05-03 0:57
What a fabulous carpet of beautifully sharp tulips. The composition is enhanced by the lines of different coloured tulips in the distance and the path leading from the corner. The quality of this picture is so good I feel that I could step right into the field.
macondo (18623) 2011-05-03 1:51
Another 'classic' of yours - the tulip rows of Spring-time, with strong perspective that leads to the vanishing point. Colour, sharpness and the crop all make for an excellent Spring capture. Beautiful red colour in the flowers.
yquem46 (38746) 2011-05-03 2:02
A splendid shot with a looooong perspective of this field of red tulips
Excellent postcard-like quality
makes us feel like going there right away

Splendid red field. Beautiful natural texture, an impressive capture. Great job, have a calm day.
snunney (84887) 2011-05-03 2:39
The blue red tones of the tulip[s make a magnificent contrast with the pale subdued tones of the overcast sky. The image has immense depth. A splendid capture of these magnificent tulip fields.

un spectacle grandiose, cette surface recouverte de tulipes rouge dans un paysage plat.Il s'en dégage une bonne pespective.

Trés belle prise trés nette, ce qui est difficile avec les tulipes, des couleurs naturelles, et une profondeur splendide.
Charo (51210) 2011-05-03 14:07
It is a delight for the eyes to see these big fields of tulips in bloom.
A highly regarded composition, decentering perspective, which gives a good depth and geometry.
A beautiful job well done.

So wonderful and marvelous shot indeed.
A flood of joy and peace!
Perfect presentation by so impresive framework / composition via wide focus, best clearly sharp and deep focus as usual. Very fresh color is attractive also outstanding too.
Thanks for your sharing finest work and have a good day!
Takero from warm Spring Tokyo
batalay (35743) 2011-05-03 19:00
What a truly magnificent carpet of red tulips. It's a simple but elegant composition celebrating the colors of red and green. This is one time when red-green color blindness would fare badly in appreciating this beautiful Flemish masterpiece.
Warm regards, John. You should reach the 100,000 barrier with this genuinely memorable work of art.
stevesaba (8135) 2011-05-03 19:54
Superbly done with such great DOV, enabling wonderful clarity for a great depth. The foreground is still beautifully clear.....really the kind of tulip photo I enjoy with lots of depth. Perfect colors, and aptly composed for such an immense field. A real winner, warm regards,

macjake (57074) 2011-05-04 11:16
Did you have to get a bit dirty and muddy to get this shot! i hope so :)
lovely lines, colors, and the depth is very deep as the rows seemingly go on till they fall off the chart!

The foreground which lets see flowers lively red and the green stalks is very beautiful. The light, the colors, the neatness, the depth are remarkable. Congratulations.
Have a nice evening
pierrefonds (57509) 2011-05-05 5:01
The length of the rows of tulips is giving depth and perspective to the composition. The point of view is showing the details and colors of the tulips. The late afternoon light is enhancing the colors. Have a nice day.
wolf38 (31282) 2011-05-05 8:15
Hi John. Red tulips as far as the eye. The horizon is very well integrated into the overall composition. A masterful photo. Compliment. Rgds, Wolfgang.
SWEETFREEDOM (22808) 2011-05-05 11:22
roses and tulips are my favorites, this view is amazing great colors, d.o.f. and p.o.v.
josepmarin (57823) 2011-05-05 11:30
the chromatism of this composition is impressive, because of these fields of tulips and its vivid and intense red color.
But in addition, with this framing you have looked for a visual very effective angle to give a strong and elegant diagonal perspective to the flowers, which leads our look towards the horizon.
The composition is very well balanced and has a great graphical and chromatic harmony.
Excellent photo, my friend.
Budapestman (82620) 2011-05-05 13:26
a splendid endless view with picturesque colours, the composition is spectacular, great POV and perspective, Tfs! Have a nice evening! Kellemes estét kívánok!

Nice to communicate with you again. Wonderlike gehalte, kleure en samestelling wat die oog vanaf die pragtige blomme in die voorgrond na die verdwynpunt lei. Welgedaan. 'n Plesier om te aanskou. Vriendelike groete.

JCG (35129) 2011-05-07 7:45
J'espère que ce n'est pas trop sec chez vous... Et que ces merveilleuses tulipes vont garder leur belle fraîcheur. Printemps agréable et bien ensoleillé, mais il faudrait tout de même un peu d'eau, sans que ça dure... Après le jaune voici le temps du rouge. Encore un bon cadrage qui amplifie l'effet de profondeur. Le premier plan est magnifique, merci John.
Avec toutes mes amitiés et un très beau WE,
TopGeo (38204) 2011-05-07 9:23

Bonjour, mon cher ami John,
A perte de vue, le champ de tulipes s'étale majestueusement en changeant de couleurs selon la variété.
Un bouquet de fleurs géant en pleine nature.
siudzi (33973) 2011-05-08 3:13
A very eye-catching shot of this beautiful red tulip field. Great perspective and depth you achieved here. Well done.
Thanks for sharing.
Nard (6972) 2011-05-08 3:31
What a red! I like it. The perspective given is excellent with a very good sharpness and depth. I like also the constrats between the depp red and the sky.
Have a nice WE

Stunning beauty of these tulips in red, the color strength of his gaze captive since you see the photo before opening small, sensational POV capturing the wide groove so right to give a feeling of tremendous depth.
Excellent handling of light, the color that best tell ..... it's amazing. Well done.
I wish you a good Sunday afternoon.
All the best.

Ciao John, great perspective on fantastic field full of splendid tulips, excellent clarity, wonderful light and colors, very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio
Urs (14082) 2011-05-12 17:03
Due to a very heavy workload I could not find time for TE for more then two months, sorry, it will be not much better in the coming weeks, but I will try my best to visit as much as possible.
The red made me click this shot, it is so vibrant and sets a contrast to the overcast and rather dull sky. Tulips do not grow in this part of the world, it's a pity but we cannot have everything. Good light management and excellent POV. Well done
siolaw (38284) 2011-05-14 7:14
The gradually diminishing size of the flowers gives strong visual impact and graphism. Great red and green combination here.
Angshu (55914) 2011-05-15 21:42
Dag dear John
The perspective created by the fine red tulips, the converging lines like an arrow head towards the horizon is fantastic! The clarity & sharpness of the picture is excellent!
mkamionka (30694) 2011-05-31 3:34
wonderful field full of flowers.
I like the depth of the field. We can admire details of the flowers in the foreground and enjoy the red field stretching to infinity. I would like to see it some day in reality.
Beautiful view, TFS
fritzi007 (6081) 2011-06-03 6:56
Wirklich eine Farbenpracht, gratuliere!
Wünsch dir ein schönes Wochenende
nobuikehonda (3848) 2011-06-16 5:26
When I am needed to cheer myself up, I come to your gallery. And so here I am. The beauty of these Tulips are indescribable. as far as I can see, Tulips fill the field. The time for me is a little difficult, but I am in good shape. as you can see I am still learning. It is always good to come to see your gallery. I don't always leave you a message, But I come to see your works.
Thank you John,
Very very best regards,
ourania (32083) 2012-12-23 7:08
a very lovely, almost graphical representation of the vast field of red tulips under an increasingly moody sky. I love how you've collected and rendered the strange and intense light before the storm. Perspective, depth and sharpness are marvellous. The luminosity and vividness of the red tulips are magnificent boosting the viewer's mood by evoking passion and energy. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, a wonderful Christmas for you and your dear ones!
Miguel82 (24223) 2013-07-20 1:18
