Bonsoir, cher Gunnar,
Avec une telle température, l'on peut comprendre qu'un bain de soleil s'impose, même au mois d'avril.
Jolie présentation générale avec de jolies tulipes.

Wow! Sweden is warmer than NYC. :-) This woman does look warm - or maybe she's just tired from exploring the garden. I like that she is also wearing red; it matches the red tulips and the red arch behind them. It must have been a lovely day to enjoy the garden, and all of the flowering trees and plants.

You're capturing well this scene by a good composition and so excellent tone/clarity, so it's interesting and impressive to see the red tulip in Botanical Garden. And, you catch other red objects of woman wearing red T-shirt and red arch, together. She looks like relax in warm spring.

Gunnar, I admire so much the beautiful flowers to the right and the lady in red relaxing to the left...
a perfect spring moment!!
jjcordier (76416) 2014-04-27 23:15
Bien vu! La jeune femme a fait l'effort d'harmoniser ses vêtements avec la couleur des tulipes!

Hello Gunnar, How great to have summer warm and long days after winter. Not so many tulips like in Holland but nice. And the girl in red is taking sun, maybe too much.

Snyggt med färgmatchad tjej och tulpaner. Botaniska är fin så här års.

Nice scene from botanical gardeen.
Beautiful tulips and...
Good frame and colors.
Have a nice day
holmertz (41083) 2014-04-28 2:58
Här var det gott om rött i olika nyanser, fint matchande varandra. Mänsklig närvaro och försommarstämning gör ju inte saken sämre.

Also in Belgium got the same temperatures, but you found a very nice model for your picture.
These young lady enjoys of the high temperatures and the springtime sun.
Lovely composition, nice depth and perspective.
Very well seen, TFS.
Have a nice day,
Sergiom (60180) 2014-04-28 5:18
J'aime beaucoup la comparaison entre la couleur des tulipes et celle des vêtements de la dame.Un très bon point pour l'observateur urbain. Une belle gestion de la lumière forte.
Romano46 (18454) 2014-04-28 5:41
posso immaginare quale poteva essere la gioia dei tuoi concittadini in presenza di una temperatura che per la stessa latitudine della città appare quasi anomala per questo periodo.
Un'ottima occasione anche per te per cogliere situazioni fotografiche insolite come questa per proporle agli amici di te.
Piacevole la composizione ed ottimo il contrasto e la definizione.
Ciao e buona settimana

Good evening Gunnar,
A 22c is our normal/colder spring days, but we do not have Tulips.
The lady in red looks not as happy as to be on your photo, but she might had thought this before set on the bench, near the flowers - because the place is a botanical garden and obviously someone would come and take photos of the marvelous flowers...
Nice taken on a bright sunny day.
Nicou (122146) 2014-04-28 8:44
la dame en deux tons rouge et les fleurs rouge les belle tulipes quelle vue et comme elle se tient sur le banc quelle compo et vue quelle iamge sueprbe.
Bravo et amitié

Waaw,what a sun! Not like in Italy still under a cold rain...ehehe...the pic is truly beautiful,red girl close to red tulip under a red sun,a magic composition made with the usual top quality,i like it! Have a nice evening and thanks,Luciano.
adramad (38077) 2014-04-28 9:27
A splendid day of sunshine for these latitudes, the girl can appreciate, magnificent composition with the beauty of these tulips that seem combine with red window and the girl also dressed in red, well seen and perfectly done.
Very well balanced lighting and very good sharpness.
Well done. I love it.
Wish you a very nice week.
ourania (31137) 2014-04-28 10:07
it seems we switched weather:) We've had rains, storms, hail and clouds in Greece during the past week. Today it's cloudy on Leros and it's starting getting windy too. I like very much the sunshine in your photo, the lady's clothes take us two months ahead and the tulips evoke one of the delights of spring. A very enjoyable confusion in your picture, I hope this fine mess doesn't come at a big environmental cost. The lady and the flowers vivify the plain setting, I like how she's turned towards them. The warm tones are very agreeable. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great evening,

Interesantan tekst o mestu i trenutku, lep pogled ...
Dobar trenutak snimka i kontrast, lepo pokazano mesto sa lepom devojkom, lepe boje.
Lepo mesto za odmor sa cvecem koje lepo mirise.
Prijatno vece i sve najbolje u novoj nedelji koja je pocela, srecno.
An interesting article on the place and time, nice view ...
Good time recording and contrast nicely demonstrated place with a pretty girl, beautiful colors.
Nice place for a holiday with flowers that smells nice.
Good evening and all the best in the new week that started, good luck.
macjake (56656) 2014-04-28 13:34
yes, looks like some warm weather has hit your area!
evidenced by this lady just taking a chill break :)
funny how much of the scene is in red, and yet she's reading red aswell.
cute scene, lets hope the nice weather stays for you.
COSTANTINO (55564) 2014-04-28 13:45
Hello my dear friend
We also have the same temperature in Greece
great contrast of the red colors
the red of the lady and tthe red of
the floers are very wellcomposed
rychem (23326) 2014-04-28 21:32
I enjoy the warm days too, it is really the atmosphere of the late spring, excellent photo with a very nice relaxed scene
jurek1951 (42156) 2014-04-28 23:26
a very lovely photo with attractive composition, superb lights and timing is excellent. Great catch!
Royaldevon (29649) 2014-04-29 0:53
Hasn't it been beautiful!
Yes, summer is here, and with it the beautiful RED blooms! In fact, the colours link together the various, sharp elements in your photograph.
Hope it is as warm, today,
abmdsudi (43594) 2014-04-29 6:59
I am fascinated by the colors and juxtapositon of this street shot, wonderful, right place right time. Nicely composed as the lady does add a special touch matching the colour of tulips. A lovely image and seems so fitting with your feelings.......
Well done, TFS
photoray (12231) 2014-04-29 7:40
Fine view from the Gothenburg Botanical Garden, the red blossoms in front of the arch, and the red short attractive leggy female.
Silvio1953 (122353) 2014-04-29 9:07
Ciao Gunnar, lovely composition with a lot of beautiful tulips and nice woman on bench, excellent clarity, splendid light and wonderful colors, very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio
mesutilgim (84442) 2014-04-29 13:49
Hello dear Gunnar,
The unique "red tulip" at right is in hard competition with real tulips !
Nice and interesting capture.
TFS and best regards
tyro (20494) 2014-04-29 14:19
Apart from a little green foliage, this picture is almost monochrome with the main subjects depicted in brilliant red! The red archway on the right frames the glorious bed of deep red tulips perfectly and that is balanced by another pretty flower - dressed in reds - relaxing on the bench on the left.
A lovely balanced composition with glorious light and colours, perfect exposure and stunning details and sharpness.
eldancer1 (27953) 2014-04-29 20:12
Love the red tulips and thank you for including this woman with red outfit. At least she is admiring the tulips also. Good lighting and sharp details. Wonderful colors. Well done, tfs.
RhodieIke (11742) 2014-04-29 22:31
Love this the lady in red basking in the sun next to the gorgeous red Tulips.
I can make out a bit of her T-shirt writing,Talk about something..
A slight distraction for me is the top quarter glass panes, if you cropped down to the top of the red trellis it would be perfect.
dip (23630) 2014-04-30 0:07
very nice capture of the good weather atmosphere in Gothenburg,
I like the composition,amazing colors indeed!
thanks for sharing,
Cricri (106371) 2014-04-30 9:54
Un rouge qui ce copie un peu partout, sur le bâtiment, les fleurs et le t-shirt de la dame
a la position très cool , profitant du soleil, belle composition
SWEETFREEDOM (22730) 2014-04-30 10:28
lovely tulips. i like colors and sharpness.
22 in april would not be bad also for north Italy, today rain and 13 degrees.
romanaa (7966) 2014-05-01 13:52
lovely red again and again. But from woman's point of view... you did not do any good presenting this picture on TE... the lady would break your lens if only she knew. Not a nice pose you know... and the facial expression... she does not look happy either ... ;-)... Joking..
Enjoy the pleasant weather.
jcpix (13662) 2014-05-02 20:51
Well, it looks like someone is definitely taking advantage of the warmer temperatures. :) So, who's the star of this picture...the tulips, or the lady on the bench...her casual posture makes me smile as much as seeing the beautiful display of flowers. One seems to compliment the other with color, it's a perfect match. ha Well observed and timed to catch her regard in that direction. Enjoy the weekend. Take good care.
Buin (42326) 2014-05-03 8:58
Die anderen TE-Freunde haben schon alles gesagt, aber auch ich möchte noch sagen, dass dies ein großartiges Foto ist. Die "Komposition" ist sehr gelungen und ausbalanciert und die Tulpen sind ein wirklicher "Hingucker" ;-))
Das Wetter in Göteborg ist mehr als erstaunlich.
Herzliche Grüße aus dem sonnigen Siegen an euch beide.
Heute Nacht erwarten wir -4°C!
batalay (35611) 2014-05-03 12:40
The young lady sunning and taking it easy on the bench offers a counterpoint to the patch of ret tulips. Summer has finally come to Washington, DC as it has to Gothenburg.
gildasjan (41604) 2014-05-03 12:47
Belle composition réalisée avec cette femme assise semblant un peu dépitée.Bon rappel de la couleur des fleurs avec les vêtements rouges de cette femme.
jemaflor (84777) 2014-05-03 23:15
Nice red colors on your photo with clothes and flowers, pleasant scene with this sunny day and the lady.
annjackman (19657) 2014-05-03 23:23
It is very warm in Sweden now but not so warm in England yet. This picture shows your wonderful observation. The lady in red sitting casually beside those splendid red tulips and red arch make a great composition. I think that it works so well because of the grey BG making the colour really jump off the page.
Kind Regards, Ann
serp2000 (40042) 2014-05-04 7:46
Amazing composition with the red tulips, the red frame and the woman in red. Funny daily life scene, I see you had just the hot April days. Lucky people!
Greetings from Ural!
danos (86805) 2014-05-04 22:57
Good morning Gunnar,
nice the snapshot with the young woman in red to sit near the bouquet of the red tulips making the image so inviting and unique.The light and the colour management make the image so beautiful.
Glint (6167) 2014-05-06 3:40
I think you give a nod to Anders Kristensson with this one. Like him you enjoy a signature red. The bg offers a graphical element and contrast to the natural form of tulips.
PiotrF (8790) 2014-05-06 10:05
Nice red colors on your photo with flowers and clothes. A nice composition, good presentation. A lovely moment to take these nice picture.
dale54 (6625) 2014-05-07 11:12
gunner hello..very nice work,nice crop.the red flowers and the ladies red top i think make this shot! dale
tatadalou (6097) 2014-05-07 12:46
I like the composition, a few elements but complementary. Red clothes, red flowers, and nothing more.
This woman is right to enjoy summertime so early in the year.
Graal (97527) 2014-05-08 10:07
summer mood here in spring season. I like the tulips and resting woman. Good composition. Superb quality of photo.
Have a nice evening.
pierrefonds (57033) 2014-05-22 16:02
The eye catcher is the woman with the red clothing in contrast with the red tulips. The point of view is showing the détails and the colors of the tulips. The good luminosity is enhancing the colors. Re my today's photo the street name near Sherbrooke is Saint-Mathieu. Have a nice day.
claudeD (32775) 2014-05-23 3:23
you have shared here a very fine spring moment with all TE members. Excellent composition, fine colors and sharpness. The flowers and the lady relaxing in the sun are wonderful ...TFS.
WIth regards from Luxembourg
wolf38 (31280) 2014-06-08 7:42
Hello Gunnar. A beautiful and worth seeing photo. Anyone who has gone through the greenhouses and has admired tulips would like to have a rest. The red of the tulips and the outfit of Lady fit well together.
Best rgds, Wolfgang.
mcmtanyel (13539) 2014-06-28 19:21
Red tulips balanced on the other side by a red outfit - very nicely done. I hope your summer is as enjoyable as when this photo was taken.
seres76 (780) 2014-07-02 13:03
Günlük yaşama dair güzel bir fotoğraf...
A beautiful photo on daily life ... Thanks ...
fotka (3565) 2014-09-09 6:01
The tulips are gone a long time ago but is nice to refresh spring's memories.
A lady comfortable relaxing on the bench during warm spring day.
Great observation of daily life that made great quality shot.
