From this place photographers go out only when all memory cards (or films) are full...
I saw all latest equipment in use - full bags with cameras and lenses.
So, if You interesting - please visit!
From www.keukenhof.nl -
Spring was put on hold this year as Winter lingered longer than usual. Nowhere is this seasonal tardiness more evident than at Keukenhof, where we have had to wait a bit longer for the bulbs to burst into a vibrant display of colour. The good news is that the exuberance and vitality will now continue well into the month of May. So, to allow visitors to fully enjoy the sights and scents of Keukenhof, we have decided to extend the period during which the park is open till 21 May. There will be plenty of additional attractions in the park right up to the last day, including a spectacular exhibition of lilies in one of the pavilions and performances of live music. More than enough reasons for visiting Keukenhof this season.

You probably got your face in the dirt to catch this excellent photo, abolutely well composed. Very unusual point of view, at least, this low!
Sharpness and details are fantastic. Good job!

Hi Ivars !
I wish i could travel to a place this beautiful. I can't but your photograph compensates for that. I love the way you have framed the composition, with the barren tree forming a perfect backdrop to the colourful bulbs in the foreground.
Congratulations and thanks for sharing such an wonderful image.

Hi Ivars - superb DOF/POV for this amazing photo. Spectacular repetition and nice framing with the tree. Most appropriate vertical format. Keukenhof in April is superb, (this year also in May), definitely well worth the entrance and the parking fee. Congratulations, Daniel

nice image and interesting pov! the tulips seem to be soooo high!
know exactly what you mean, as myself managed to get out of Keukenhof only beacause the battery in my camera went flat after several hours shooting.

Beautiful shot, Ivars!
Creative POV and nice composition. Contrast of colors is attractive. maybe more shallow DOF for softer branches is preferable.

Hello Ivars, this flower one to benefit from a favorable climate of a magic manure just like this magic framing him also which magnifie all the more seen under this angle, attention the tulips arrives and the trees one case to be held well, sincerely
coco (30437) 2006-05-06 7:41
I like very much the POV. Perhaps the light not was the best, but you make a good and interesting work.
capthaddock (28790) 2006-05-07 12:47
Hi Ivars - excellent perspective, I love how the close and far objects are so sharply in focus, looks like a forest of giant tulips, excellent work.

I just had a look at your serie on the holland tulips.
This one is great for the POV. You where in the flowers and we feel also on the ground.
PJE (20758) 2006-05-08 22:30
Well Ivars this kind of photo can only be produced with a camera like yours. I love the looking upwards angle in this photo. Excellent work and excellent framing the huge tree behind these tulips. Very nicely done!
iGirl (1223) 2006-05-09 8:57
Hi Ivars, what a beautiful picture! I love the viewpoint, and the contrast of the bright-colored flowers with the neutral-colored background. Thanks for sharing!
john_c (24662) 2006-05-09 13:39
This is very fine imagery, with a high impact shot well displayed in the portrait format. The low angle POV really works and the clarity of detail is astounding. I like the way the tree cloaks the scene, well seen in the distance. A memorable shot, Ivars.
