These picture has been taken in Oostburg Zealand in the Netherlands on 9 km of my home.
A pity of these picture, the sky was not clean or no lovely clouds.
Notwithstanding I like the perfection picture makes, I want these placing for the specially color of the tulips.
Also very difficult for take a nice image through the strong wind, the tulip are little bit in move, this is never perfect, also the few sun, which are flowers are not fully open.
These picture is taken with tripod, the angle is specially for the long perspective.
Tulips are spring-blooming perennials that grow from bulbs. Depending on the species, tulip plants can grow as short as 4 inches (10 cm) or as high as 28 inches (71 cm). The tulip's large flowers usually bloom on scapes or subscapose stems that lack bracts. Most tulips produce only one flower per stem, but a few species bear multiple flowers on their scapes. The showy, generally cup- or star-shaped tulip flower has three petals and three sepals, which are often termed tepals because they are nearly identical. These six tepals are often marked near the bases with darker colorings. Tulip flowers come in a wide variety of colors, except pure blue (several tulips with "blue" in the name have a faint violet hue.
I hope you like it.

The tulip fields of the Netherlands are something that I would love to see. I always seem to be there at the wrong time of the year! Your picture inspires me to do this in the next year or two. The graphic lines of colour disappearing to the vanishing point are most impressive. Super quality.
Kind Regards, Ann

Je reist wat af (of je moet dicht bij
de grend wonen) in de korte tijden.
De foto heeft een mooie dieptegang,
dankzij de diagonale lijnen van de
mooie bloemen. Ook is de foto lekker
verdeeld en zoals altijd is ook de
belichting zeer verzorgd.
Fijn weekend en vriendelijke groeten,

Bonjour, cher ami Joh,
Excellente ligne de fuite pour ces champs de tulipes, qui convergent vers un même point.
Excellent cadrage relevant d'une maîtrise technique éprouvée.
ikeharel (43845) 2012-04-22 1:53
Yes John, it's the time for the Tulips as every spring.
Wondeful colors, good depth (of field of course), endless rows, to take us far on the horizon.
Fabulous taken image, enjoy your sunday.
agulberk (3794) 2012-04-22 2:11
Hello Dear John
Very nice captured of colorful Tulips field in a good infinity perspective to get strong sense of depth of field and graphical effects. Excellent presentation with perfect light management to obtain well sharpness, fine clarity and lovely saturated colors.
Thanks for sharing.
Have a nice sunday,
Ninello52 (7065) 2012-04-22 2:30
But because these are long rows of tulips? The depth is enhanced by your wonderful shot! Very effective the perspective enhanced by the colors as well as lines of the rows. Resounding those red and yellow on the right side!
Best regards and good Sunday! Nino.
wolf38 (29114) 2012-04-22 2:37
Hi John. Yes, that is the Netherlands. Tulips in all colors as far as the eye. Your photo has a great perspective. And as always, fine composition, the best technical quality. Really very nice. Rgds, Wolfgang.
siamesa (27461) 2012-04-22 2:45
Bom dia John
Superb field. Perfect perspective. Magnificent capture. TFS
have a nice Sunday
ChrisJ (91132) 2012-04-22 3:17
Amazing repetition of the orange tulips, with superb colour saturation & wonderful use of diminishing linear perspective. The lines converge towards the horizon & vanishing point. The red & yellow strips either side add interest. Tfs!
siudzi (27691) 2012-04-22 4:35
Excellent shot of this tulip field captured with impressive sense of depth! Like it very much. A top quality work. Thanks for sharing.
Have a nice day!
tyro (15665) 2012-04-22 4:49
A very interesting note and a beautiful photograph with which to illustrate it.
By your description of the weather, I think many photographers would not have tackled this picture but you have made the very most of the situation and produced a wonderful image.
The strong perspective of the lines of tulips is a very strong compositional feature as they disappear to a vanishing point on the horizon and the added feature of deep red and bright yellow bands of colour at the sides are wonderful.
Perfect exposure, stunning colours and exquisite detail and sharpness.
jacquest (16328) 2012-04-22 4:52
Excellent POV with all; those straight lines leading the eye to the horizon with those endless lines of tulips. The colors are well rendered under this good light.
pierrefonds (50930) 2012-04-22 5:19
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. There is a good contrast between the colors of the picdture. Have a nice day.
Kielia (21513) 2012-04-22 6:25
a very beautiful composition with a fantastic mood (despite the dull sky you are describing). Very nice light and spectacular colors. Most of all I like this fantastic perspective. My compliments also for the nice note!

Le temps des tulipes est enfin arrivé en Hollande pour notre plus grand plaisir. Les détails sont d'une grande netteté et les couleurs sont magnifiques.
mesutilgim (72828) 2012-04-22 9:51
Hellon dear John,
Your tulips are competing with my tulips :-))
Nice capture of this colorfull fields. There is an interesting part in your notes, regarding the use of tripod. I think I have to consider it as well, as my todays entry does not have the necessary sharpness.
One of the reasons maybe, that I made it after a heavy rainy fall with great humidity in the air.
TFS and best regards

Hello John, a shot that emphasizes the perspective, with the converging lines to a unique point located on the horizon, very well done!
Nice mix of strong colors and pleasant landscape.
I imagine your difficult to shot at 1/60 with thousands tulips that dance in the wind. As you say, the sky is not deep blue with lovely clouds, but the picture is anyway very pleasant.
Best regards & ciao
Schnappilic (9060) 2012-04-22 12:19

Wow! When I used to live in Portland, Oregon, I used to the flower farms all the time. They have flowers growing almost year round starting with tulips, iris, dahlias and others. This is an awesome capture of flower heaven! Love all those colors and it has good saturation. Very well done, tfs.

I am enthralled by this shot and what a medley of colours! Great carpets of tulips nicely captured in bright light and perspective. The composition is just right and fine contrast to the vastness of space, depth and contrasting stunningly to the sky. Another gorgeous stuff. Great work, Congrats
macjake (45540) 2012-04-23 7:21
Tulips are always a great subject :)
there are so many compositions that are available for tulips, and i think this style is the best or most effective.
love the colors, depth, and also the height.
ruisc_pt (10133) 2012-04-23 13:02
Again John.,,, as always a wonderful shot|
The endless point of fugue is really that.. a fugue

mi colpisce la perfetta prospettiva su questo campo di tulipani con i colori che escono in modo forte dall'immagine,
perfetta la definizione,
Alco (5431) 2012-04-23 21:49
Superb tulip field.The perspective is very interesting.All the lines seem to join in the background.Very nice variety of tulips.Very well done.
jlbrthnn (79789) 2012-04-24 6:30
The perspective and framing give the impression of moving toward the horizon. The light and colors are good and spectacular. Sharpness and depth are excellent. Bravo.
Have a nice day

Magnificent view of the plantation of tulips. Excellent point of view and perspective, beautiful depth. Wonderful colors and good sharpness.
Royaldevon (21345) 2012-04-24 13:23
What a sight, and spreading as far as the eye can see, guiding the viewers at breakneck speed! The converging lines are inescapable, you have perfect control over the viewers!
A fine dof, detailing the beauties of The Netherlands for all to enjoy.
I planted tulip bulbs in autumn. The leaves are large but the flower heads are only just forming. I will have a lovely surprise when they flower, for I have forgotten their colour!
My warm regards,
Didi (51253) 2012-04-24 16:03
Bonjour mon ami
Intéressante piste d’atterrissage pour une abeille qui aura beaucoup de travail pour butiner.
Jolie perspective colorée.

foozi (7101) 2012-04-25 1:36
just like an endless road of flowers. The lines of colours are really amazing. Exciting presentation of perspective in real view.
danyy (0) 2012-04-25 6:48
je vais chaque année à Lisse et Keukenhof pour voir ces merveilleuses par millions, ces lignes de couleurs qui n'en finissent pas.
Et toujours ces effets de perspective qui allongent la profondeur.
Une photo très réussie.
PecoBud (3824) 2012-04-25 12:01
WOW, beautiful tulip ranch you have masterfully presented here John, and with excellent clarity and superb DOF. Dazzling colors and perfect light management has been successfully portrayed here with your POV John, great job!!
danos (78030) 2012-04-26 0:36
Good morning John,
one more fascinating view from the colourful cultivated tulips in the fields of the country.I like the creating perspective,the endless view of the image, as lead-in the eye on the far end of the horizon.
Have a good day,Danos
adramad (30819) 2012-04-26 2:45
Fabulous .... these fields of tulips, the POV is superb with these terraces, which create these diagonal lines, which produce a magnificent view, to go find a very distant point, which gives a large depth of field to the composition.
The stripes are beautiful, soft light that makes it very relaxing image viewing.
Excellent work. I love it.
josepmarin (56467) 2012-04-26 4:15
is an epoch of tulips and of flowers, is spring, and always it is very pleasant to see your photos about this topic.
The composition is explicit, and plays elegantly with the deep perspective of the tulips field and its vivid colors, creating a very dynamic image.
The red and yellow tones give a great chromatic power at the photo.
An excellent work.
Silvio1953 (105301) 2012-04-26 5:35
Ciao John, great perspective on fantastic field full of tulips, wonderful colors, excellent clarity and splendid light, very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio

Nard (6915) 2012-04-26 7:18
Beautiful perspective lines. The field seems infinite. The colors are very nice and stand well out the sky. I like also the sharpness on the tulips on the FG with details
kato (9484) 2012-04-26 7:36
You're capturing well this tulip field by a good angle and eexcellent tone/clarity, so it's interesting and impressive to see colorful(orange, red, yellow and white) tulips. You catch well it on a radiation line.
A good photograph of spring season.
Have a nice day.
UlfE (14112) 2012-04-26 12:37
Perhaps quite similiar to some other tulips photos, but the not very strong lighting creates a diffent mood. The colours are a little bit softer but it is still a very colourful and beautiful photo. Good idea to take a photo in a different lighting. TFS and have a nice evening!
bukitgolfb301 (32574) 2012-04-26 18:18

Waylim (23310) 2012-04-28 11:02
It is alwyas such a pleasure to see such beautiful photo of the tulips farm, great POV and fantastic perspective that lead our vision far into the horizon and it seem to be goind on and on to the edge of the earth, if the earth were to be flat, we would have drop of the surface of the earth :)
Great quality shot as always. Have a great day.
maloutim (9455) 2012-04-28 13:09
Good evening John,
It's always a delight to enjoy your beautiful tulip fields in this season.
Great POV with the rows of flowers forming such colourful triangles.
I was visiting Mesutilgim's gallery with all the tulips in the parks of Istambul with a lot of pleasure too.
He was explaining how tulips originate from the mountains in Iran where they grow wild, how they came to Turkey and then to Holland through the Turks. Very interesting.
Here is a LINK TO WILD TULIPS IN IRAN , and ANOTHER .
Quite different sights, but all beautiful.
Thanks for sharing and have a good Sunday.
gildasjan (39558) 2012-05-01 4:54
Il n'y a que dans votre pays que l'on peut réaliser de telles perspectives avec le milieu floral.
Buin (42118) 2012-05-03 3:08
One always again gets a bit envious about the possibility of taking photos in such an outstanding region. These fields of tulips with their rows of different colours simply are gorgeous and the depth in the photos taken here is hardly to surpass. A real feast for the eyes - and soul!
I hope you are fine!
rmajum (1077) 2012-05-03 3:46
You are lucky enough to have the spectacular tulip field only 9 km from your home. This is a rare sight for me. The lines of colour meeting in the distance, good depth and clarity. irrespective of the cloudy sky, the light is ample and adds brilliance to the colours. TFS
JFS (32453) 2012-05-03 10:07
Endless lines of flowers, great visual effect, the eyes follow them and meet the line of trees and the blue sky. Great work John! Thanks!
Angshu (52878) 2012-05-04 6:11
The converging perspective of the rows of tulips of varied colours, converging near the horizon makes for a fine picture. The quality is very good especially with the colours. Good work!
baddori (19133) 2012-05-04 12:56
Cilri, geometrie, e il bel tulipano ....forse 100.000 il numero ....

Picture is very beautiful. Lighting and composition is very good.
clic (12465) 2012-06-18 7:58
Why do I think of a runway lined of red lighting?!
I imagine as many men as flowers in that field, picking up an offering for thier girlfriend!
Thanks for this colourful Dutch scenery.

elenimavrandoni (9965) 2013-03-17 12:44
Hello John, I imagine of how beautiful it is to walk through a field with amazing tulips!
A very natural picture with beautiful symmetry and color!
jcpix (6456) 2013-05-12 9:48
Easy to understand why this has received so much positive feedback...to use a common description, it's beautiful! :) Plain and simple, you've allowed the color and material speak for itself. The converging lines create a wonderful perspective, and the blue sky and faint clouds are a nice compliment of color to the fields of flowers. The red and crimson rows along the sides greatly enhance the distance effect, well composed and presented for maximum result. Thanks for sharing the view. Have a pleasant week ahead.
All the best,
Miguel82 (14312) 2013-09-18 7:10
Buna ziua John, thanks for your comment I'll never be tired to see these big tulips fields of Zeeland plains
The flowers' colors are shining, excellent light and large perspective true to your own style, clear shot
