This is a windmill in flowerpark Keukenhof. It is a big tourist attraction at this side of the country but I haven't seen it before. I have a collegue over from India and he was very interested in a visit. I am not a flower kind of guy myself but TE-member Lieke (Liekje) made some excellent post about it earlier which made me decide to grab my cam and come along.
Make sure to also check out the fields around the towns of Lisse, Hillegom and Tylingen. These can be entered free of charge and also make for nice photo opportunities.

Gezellig he, zoveel mensen op de Keukenhof. Had niet verwacht dat je er naartoe zou gaan. Anyway, mooi typisch nederlands plaatje hoor. Je gaat ooit nog wel eens van ons kikkerlandje houden :)

Beautiful composition, Gilbert.
I like how you have framed it with the flowers sweeping our eye around to the windmill. Lovely bright colours and excellent clarity.

Hello Gilbert, thanks for showing that picture: now I know there is no need to go there. I canīt stand these overcrowded places, surely you have to wait in line not only for tickets, but as well for anything else: ijs, coffee, good positions for photos etc.....
If I have the chance for a visit, Iīll look for the fields I saw on pictures of Liekje, korbee and others.

This is such a pleasant image with all the people having a good time out in the sun. The multitude of the small, colourful flowers, draws my eyes into the heart of the photo. A very nice, peaceful scene, which is well composed.
