Through a lot bike trips, I found again a wonderful big field with tulips in the Netherlands Zeeland
We got a wonderful sunny weekend, Friday with almost twenty in PM.
Maybe was a cloud better for the totally composition but a nice blue makes it contrast also very nice.
Not forget this field is on 6km of the North Sea, this gives always a little bit fog to the sky, this is sometimes not easy at to get, a perfect blue sky about the totally sky.
I hope you like it.
The tulip is the absolute number 1 and icon of the Dutch flower bulb industry. Of course there are lots of other sorts of flower bulbs.. And rightly so, daffodils and many others species are the first messengers of spring and in addition multiply easily. Fritillaria, Allium and even some Crocus can be breath-taking beautiful.
The Dutch tulip fields have a special concern of tourists from all over the world.
The different spheres areas in the Netherlands in the spring overrun by tourists
When his the tulip fields in bloom?
The best time for this is spring. From late March colour fields. Until the early summer there are colours to see, but April is usually the best time. The fresh breeze from the sea, the bright spring light and endless fields of blooming tulips than one choice.

Bonjour, cher ami John,
Des champs de tulipes à perte de vue. L'effet de perspective est excellent et impressionnant.
Un bien joli parterre fleuri.
carlo62 (34414) 2014-04-16 0:04
dopo i tulipani francesi ecco gli originali olandesi.
I colori a perdita d'occhio sono fantastici, in questo momento la terra si colora e chi ha la possibilità di vederla dall'alto è molto fortunato.
Perfette le diagonali che convergono al centro dando molta profondità.
ourania (32763) 2014-04-16 0:44
the reds are vivid and beautiful but it's nice that the tulips in your picture are not only red. I like very much the play of harmonious tonalities and the thin slice of bright yellow makes a very pleasant contribution too. You arranged the converging perspectives superbly, the graphical effect you achieved is lovely. I also like how stunningly different and smooth the upper part of your composition is. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great day,
Giustiniani (3378) 2014-04-16 2:15
une belle perspective qui donne une profondeur étonnante à la photo et des couleurs splendides. Une superbe prise de vue.
macjake (57412) 2014-04-16 2:17
wonderful looking Tulip photo :)
easy to see why you keep coming back here every year!
love the long lines, the depth, and of course the colors. Perhaps raising the horizon line above the 50% line could make it look even better :)
still a lovely photo. the pinks and yellows on each side are very attractive.
enjoy your day
timecapturer (49288) 2014-04-16 2:18
iconic Dutch treat this! I love the simplicity and yet complexity of this shot if you get my drift. Simple lines and yet beautifully complex textures and colours! Awesome!
Regards - B.
vjmite (3942) 2014-04-16 4:17
I have been to New Zealand, but not the original Zeeland. This photo is almost an abstract geometrical design, with wonderful colors and excellent depth of field. Well done.
subhendu_bagchi (25871) 2014-04-16 4:25
This is beautiful. You got a gem from the nature. Great composition with fine colours and warm light. Excellent one, really enjoyable. TFS.
jacquest (18811) 2014-04-16 4:32
The distance and the straight lines gives a lot of deepness to the image as the different colors all meeet in a single focal point under a beautiful light.
cornejo (32722) 2014-04-16 4:32
Hi John, lovely view of this beautiful field of tulips, very well captured with great depth and great pov, in this great and beautiful photography. An interesting image of a nice place, with good sharpness, nice light, color and quality. A great job well done, congratulations my friend. Thanks for sharing this beautiful work.
Good afternoon and happy rest of the week.
Warm greetings from southern Spain.
Noel_Byrne (25230) 2014-04-16 4:35
When I see these flowers for sale in local shops, it is easy to forget these immense farms which grow them, and I really feel they look so much more beautiful in their multitudes here than when cut and sitting in a store. The lines of the shot really draw in the eye and these colors are amazing
Thanks as always
pierrefonds (57933) 2014-04-16 4:42
The length of the fields is giving depth and perspective to the composition. The point of view is showing the different colors of tulips. The good luminosity is enhancing the beauty of the colors. Have a nice day.
lousat (78403) 2014-04-16 4:58
Salut John,rien a dire,c'est une photo magique,la meilleure maniere pour capturer ce spectacle tipique depuis les Pays-Bas dans cette saison,qaulite',perspective et couleurs au top.Mes compliments et belle soiree',Luciano
Sergiom (61944) 2014-04-16 5:18
Le plaisir de faire des randonnées à bicyclette dans la campagne hollandaise au printemps au moment où les tulipes prennent toutes leurs couleurs. Quel plaisir pour les yeux.
mesutilgim (86034) 2014-04-16 5:25
Hello dear John,
Amazing capture of this beautiful tulip fields.
Your tulips are competing with my tulips.

An amazing field with beautiful colours. Every year at this time you get the chance to take photos like this one. A very dear tradition.
saxo042 (37588) 2014-04-16 8:22
Marvellous colours over these fields, a very typical view here at this time of the year. Marvellous!
irek1 (851) 2014-04-16 8:47
The fields of tulips that you present are absolutely amazing. I really love that rhythm of color strips and clarity of the sky. Colors are great, I especially like the yellow tones on the horizon.
Very cheerful photo!
dkmurphys (50184) 2014-04-16 9:29
Superb iconic image from The Netherlands. It looks great, well taken scene.
Kamilutka (8095) 2014-04-16 10:16
we had seen some photos of the tulips on TE recently and all of them have amazing colors. I like in this case also very geomatrical and symmetrical composition which makes one focus on the colors and their contrasts. Very well given sharpness and well planned framing.
Thanks for sharing and enjoy your evening
yquem46 (38746) 2014-04-16 10:22
Again tulip time in netherlands

Excelent view of the sea of tulips, well arranged in the picture, with well defined layers. Good work, congratulations.
brianmcc (6185) 2014-04-16 13:00
the colours here are amazing. you have composed this perfectly to produce a fantastic image full of interest and appeal. the vast blue sky provides a great contrast to the detail in the field of flowers.
Fis2 (86751) 2014-04-16 13:34
Wonderful field tulips.
Good POV and perspective.
carper (96) 2014-04-16 13:59

Bonjour mon ami
Jolie perspective de cette piste d’atterrissage d'abeilles
Très bonne luminosité ambiante
Dommage qu'l n'y a pas de champs de tulipes dans ma région
Alco (6998) 2014-04-16 22:17
Very nice capture of that tulip field.Beautiful lines formed by the different colors.The lines lead the viewer to the background.Very well done.TFS.
Have a nice day.
shreya2000 (1238) 2014-04-16 22:17
Excellent picture showing the beauty of the nature which is at it's full bloom right now. Flowers are the beautiful gift of mother nature. Well taken pic.
SnapRJW (31613) 2014-04-16 23:03
I can only imagine what it must be like to see the extensive tulip fields in the flesh John. Colour as far as the eye can see! Here your shot is made so much more amazing because there is nothing but flowers right to the distant flat horizon. Not a house not a road just colour-packed flatness. A super shot of an industry that Holland is known for... imagine if they were still worth their weight in gold!
halikarnas (6772) 2014-04-17 0:30
Pesfektif ve renk beraberliği ile harika fotoğraf.
Sarı çiçeklerin çizgi halindeki görüntüsü özellikle dikkat çekiçi.
Royaldevon (30745) 2014-04-17 2:03
Oh, wow! This is a stunning shot!
The tulips create irresistible lines of colour, guiding from the f/g to the far horizon.
It must be something that you look forward to, every year. It is an amazing spring phenomenon.
Have a great day,
ikeharel (58863) 2014-04-17 3:55
Length of the furrows gave extra sense of depth, John, a real DOF with its double meaning.
fabulous red, orange, yellow and pink colors - stunning flowers on the flat-landscape.
chrislo (4155) 2014-04-17 6:20
Wat mooi al die verschillende tulpen, een foto die mij spontaan een heerlijk lentegevoel geeft en waar je heel gelukkig van wordt als je er naar kijkt. De foto is van uit een hele mooie hoek opgenomen en geeft een mooie weidse blik over dit tulpenveld. Prachtig lijnenspel met heel veel perspectief en een fraaie gelaagdheid in de foto die een mooie dieptewerking geeft. Al die lijnen die naar de horizon samenlopen, brengen je ogen naar dat ene punt achterin. Het lijkt haast een eindeloze rij tulpen. Prachtig kleurenpallet met nog een schitterende lucht erbij. Echt Hollands en heel mooi vastgelegd.
abmdsudi (44250) 2014-04-17 7:01
Such a gorgeous wide carpet of vivid blinding red tulips, this is stunning image from every angle and perspective. The composition and viewpoint extend the immense depth so superbly, the brilliant light brings lots of joy reflecting the true spirit of springtime. Great capture, TFS
photoray (12681) 2014-04-17 7:33
Like everyone else an attractive tulip geometric scene, with the dense blossoms flowing from beginning into the distant horizon.
Nicely composed and created,
Subhogen (4065) 2014-04-17 10:51
Magnificent view of the rows of multi coloured tulips. A very beautiful image with endless depth and nice perspective. Colours and sharpness are great as well. Seeing your photo I remember one of my favourite songs from an old Hindi movie which was shot on vast tulip fields in Netherlands as you show in your photo. Thanks for refreshing my memories through your excellent photo.
Romano46 (18466) 2014-04-17 12:58
un soggetto straordinario ed ancora più straordinaria la tua ripresa che ne accentua la bellezza grazie ad un POV particolarmente indovinato ed una nitidezza eccellente che si sviluppa dal primo piano fino all'infinito.
Ottima la composizione con lo sviluppo delle varie linee convergenti verso l'infinito che si sviluppano tra un colore e l'altro.
Eccellente la nitidezza ed il contrasto.
Complimenti. Una foto straordinariamente bella nei dettagli.
Ciao e buona serata
elenimavrandoni (14259) 2014-04-17 17:39
John, there are fields like this here in California in Carlsbad but of course Holland holds the great tradition of growing tulips...amazing floral natural tapestry, fabulous colors!!
Happy Easter to you and your family!!
omid266 (5600) 2014-04-17 20:53

very wonderful landscape ,brilliant beautiful field of colourful Tulips in the Land of Flowers , Holland,
You captured this farm with very good frame and POV,
Congratulations and THANKS for sharing this art work,
Best wishes from I.R.Iran
marabu61 (8679) 2014-04-18 3:09
Wonderfully colorful display of these millions of tulips in full flower. The graphical perspective of the disappearing rows of flowers is very attractive indeed.
CLODO (30706) 2014-04-18 3:12
The specific April picture to illustrate Netherland, well framed. The differnt warm colors of the tulips in rows contrast with the deep blue sky (no need of big white clouds)
Have a nice Easter WE
dip (23640) 2014-04-18 4:38

Wow! You must feel like you are in flower heaven, I know I would. I probably could days on this farm taking pictures. Love the colors and the way the farmer arranged them. Good lighting control and nice details. Very well done, tfs.
I take all my airplane pictures from the ground.

Great classic shot, the tulips en masse are breathtaking, compliments
gildasjan (41702) 2014-04-18 10:22
Votre pays est le royaume des couleurs florales.Cette perspective donne une gaieté de vivre et la touche de jaune sur la droite de cette perspective apporte une excellente touche à cette image.
Bonne soirée à vous et à votre famille.
Waylim (25362) 2014-04-18 13:45
beautiful spring image, full of life and cheerful atmosphere. What I love is all the lines leading to one vanishing point at hte far end of the horizon which give a very strong perspective.
Excllent quality photo as always. Thanks.
jcpix (13704) 2014-04-18 22:25
The atmospheric conditions certainly cannot take away from the rich color and natural beauty of these fields. With your bike, I might think you'd be tempted to ride along the dirt paths between rows to fully absorb the sights and smells. :) The converging perspective makes for a pleasant pinwheel of color and form, and the bright sunlight has been controlled well to show foreground detail and distinction along the horizon. A superb association with the season at hand! enjoy the weekend. Take good care.
tedesse (25133) 2014-04-19 2:15
Wonderful plantation of tulips.
Excellent POV, beautiful perspective and wonderful colors.
A healthy and Happy Easter to you and your loved ones
Corry (4508) 2014-04-19 5:52
Magnifique perspective sur ce champs de tulipes. Les sillons donnent de la profondeur à l'image et donnent l'impression de converger vers un point central à l'horizon. Très belles couleurs. Bien fait.
mcmtanyel (14225) 2014-04-19 14:26
Lovely radial bands of color emanating from the vanishing point. Well seen and rendered, resulting in a superb photo.
bukitgolfb301 (36442) 2014-04-19 14:46
Hi Bonsior dear John, how are you?
Sorry for my long no contatct with you due to several reasons. Wow so breathtaking image presenting your country so perfecly at all, explosion of colors!
Great panfocus and finest light and color touch as usual.
All the best and have agood weekend! TAKERO
kato (11630) 2014-04-19 21:18
You're capturing well this tulip field by a good angle, a good focus and excellent tone/clarity, so it's interesting and impressive to see the colorful tulips with red, orange, pink and yellow in spring. The field is well compartmented by the kind of color of a tulip.
COSTANTINO (56763) 2014-04-20 2:01
Today in Greece we celebrate the Easter day
and this shot was a dedication to us
during the spring
amazing colorful shot like a Paradise
with a great view of the fields
filled with red tulips
you changed my mood now
thanks a lot
adramad (38832) 2014-04-20 4:20
That beauty of fields, the composition is exquisite, with these terraces of flowers, which appear to converge at infinity, is an image with a rich chromaticism, this variety of colors of tulips and the sky so clean, soft blue .
Very well managed the brightness and sharpness, to enjoy this beautiful picture, which I love.
You enjoy the weekend.
Buin (42330) 2014-04-20 5:08
This picture doesn't need much words. It's simply beautiful and nearly overwhelming. Standing there and seeing all this splendour must be a very special experience. Nevertheless - these flowers soon will be "beheaded" ... ;-))
Greetings from sunny and warm Westphalia - at 18°C today! Have a nice week!
kwekwekan (1078) 2014-04-20 9:39
A beautiful springtime image which is immediately recognizable as being in the Netherlands with its famous flowers. Great convergent lines with a lovely colour gradient of reds, oranges, pinks and yellows. I look forward to seeing the tulips here in Ottawa soon (our spring is a bit later than yours). We receive them as a gift each year for having sheltered part of the Dutch royal family during WWII.

Sorry for being so late to answer to your kind words, John.
I consider you are very generous for offering to all the ladies on Earth such a wide variety of tulips presented with a very attractive perspective, leading attention far away where the color melt in a single point to forn a colourful fan!
Magnificent scenery, indeed!
gervaso (10829) 2014-04-24 9:45
Beautiful colors! The colors and these diagonal lines make the picture really attractive! Simple and perfect composition! Very well done!

Tulpen ohne Ende mit schönen Farbstreifen, ich sah sie schon in Istanbul im Park, in Canada im Hintergrund sind Berge.
Wünsch dir eine schöne Zeit
PiotrF (10082) 2014-04-30 14:39
The straight end endless lines of tulips give a lot of deepness and the image has a nice palette of colors.
Perfect exposure and good color saturation
siudzi (34047) 2014-05-02 1:02
Wow! This capture is absolutely marvelous due to the fantastic graphical layout created by the lines and colors of the tulip field! Amazing shot, very well done! TFS!
Miguel82 (24673) 2014-05-05 9:31
John, this is a successful picture of tulips fields, I like especially the bright pink tones, true to your own style, deep field of vision and large perspective, regards
branley (3681) 2014-05-08 0:36
A traditional and beautiful view of the Netherlands John. Wonderful colours and great depth makes this a very fine image......
Angshu (56058) 2014-05-29 21:34
These perspective shots of the colourful tulips is always beautiful to see, as they create a converging perspective in the distant horizon. The colour bands are beautiful, but the yellow strikes best to the eye.
Vasa (16778) 2014-06-15 14:45
La composition fait la photo et elle est impressionante. J'imagine John, que c'est aussi impressionant dans la situation reelle. Tu as partage ton privilege et je suis bien content de te retrouver dans ce paradis floral. Amicalement
ChrisJ (100066) 2014-07-24 6:59
Not only red tulips, but orange, yellow and pink as well! Good sharpness and amazing linear perspective and vanishing point. Superb warm vs cold color contrasts between the flowers and blue sky. Good sidelight from the left. Tfs!
swapankumarroy (2839) 2014-08-17 6:07
An extra-ordinary view of this flower bed, different color band just like a Persian carpet. I do not know what type of appreciation is applicable for it. Excellent composition, well balanced color and good sharpness.
MOST IMPRESSIVE AND BEAUTIFUL.
with deep regards and thanks.
quovadis (1056) 2014-11-01 22:25
Again a wonderful presentation. Now we know where all the tulips come from, namely, a tiny flower garden called Zeeland. I guess the yellow stripe on the right must also be tulips, not rape plants:) All the frame needs to me is a couple of white clouds walking under more deep in tone blue sky, but the nature has own rules of arrangement.
Lovely to look at photograph, thanks for sharing, have a nice Sunday !!!
mjw364 (7512) 2014-11-06 4:54
Another one of your classic tulip field perspective shots. As always very sharp with the horizon line placed perfectly in the frame. Many thanks.
berek (40015) 2014-11-15 22:26
A beautiful deep and colorful picture. The grooves lead the eye to the horizon. What a lovely colors. take care
Have a nice Sunday
Herbie (148) 2015-02-08 11:17
John, I like very much this photo, just like all your photos I've seen so far in the gallery. They are all real masterpieces of composition and framing. Beautiful colors, too. I have to give them all a closer look, it will be great to learn something from you and to improve my own skills with their help. Thank you for sharing!
