This is the second picture of the tulips 2014
Through a lot bike trips, I found again a wonderful big field with tulips in the Netherlands Zeeland
The colours are different against the first picture
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.

une classique, mais toujours très beau.
J'aime bien laprésentation dans ce format et la proportion des tiers bien respectée avec ce magnifique champ de tulippes.
snunney (80689) 2014-05-05 2:40
A glorious capture of this tulip field. Perfectly framed and with superb depth. Excellent colours and clarity.
holmertz (38665) 2014-05-05 3:01
Excellent light and colours, as I would always expect from you. The photo has a superb depth, and the red fields all seem to come together at a distant point. The slightly pink tones of the sky, just above the horizon, match the colours of the field perfectly.
timecapturer (46517) 2014-05-05 3:15
iconic Netherlands image this. Love the enticing symmetry and of course the amazing colours. A truly beautiful sight and one that I would love to see for real someday. Impressive!
Have a good week - B.

Bonjour, cher ami John,
J'aime beaucoup le point de convergence des allées de tulipes.
Bravo pour cette présentation très réussie.
Très bonne journée.
Zengi001 (2431) 2014-05-05 3:57
Great colors, nice perspective..
pierrefonds (55716) 2014-05-05 4:29
The length of the field is giving depth to the composition. The point of view is showing the details and the colors of the tulips. The good luminosity is enhancing the colors. Have a nice day.
Sergiom (56597) 2014-05-05 5:49
On dirait bien que tu avais les deux pieds entourés de tulipes. Quel beau plaisir pour les yeux. Les couleurs sont spectaculaires et l'ensemble est d'une profondeur presque à l'infini.
Royaldevon (27585) 2014-05-05 6:20
The tulips converge in straight lines of vibrant colours! You have centralised a furrow which acts like a train line, taking viewers directly to the horizon.
A wonderful effect!
There is no doubt about the flatness of the land, here!
Have a lovely day,
Nicou (118150) 2014-05-05 6:41

The tulip time by the master of perspective
Luminous and colorful
Bravo, have a nice day
adramad (36297) 2014-05-05 7:35
Wonderful fields, one never tires of seeing these beauties, superb DOF terraces which give these tulips, whose furrows between them fading into the distance, the impact of this great red color, with a smaller area in pink and yellow substance, wonderful postcard spring, the beauty of tulips.
Very good brightness and sharpness, with beautiful colors.
Well seen and done better. I Like
Have a good day.
samson (1355) 2014-05-05 8:09
Wonderful scene of tulip fields. Indeed the tulip is one of the best known symbol of the Netherlands....but this flower is increasing grown in big scale in many other countries. And people gets to enjoy the tulips there. But nothing like the Netherlands tulip fields I think.
cornejo (29349) 2014-05-05 8:32
Hi John, another nice view of beautiful tulip fields, very well composed and captured this beautiful photograph. Interesting picture with good perspective, sharpness, depth, pretty light, color and quality. A great job well done, congratulations my friend. Thanks for sharing this beautiful work.
Good evening and happy start to the week.
Warm greetings from southern Spain.
ourania (28368) 2014-05-05 9:54
a very fine picture, wonderfully composed with so neat and strong perspectives. The graphical impact is irresistible but the viewer can also find a lot of details in the colourful field. There's superb sharpness on the flowers and leaves, a long way into the frame. The sky has a delightful smoothness and you managed to make it even more attractive with the subtle colour graduation you achieved. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a lovely evening,
PS Great to know about your greek dance classes!
Romano46 (16584) 2014-05-05 10:01
i Paesi Bassi sono la patria dei tulipani e un simile spettacolo è consueto da queste parti, ma vederlo cos' in fotografia fa sempre un granbde effetto soprattutto quando la foto è fatta da un giusto punto di ripresa e la nitidezza e la resa del colore sono eccellenti come in questa.
Ciao e buon inizio di settimana
dkmurphys (47690) 2014-05-05 10:36
Superb image from the flower fields. Amazing and simple! Great catch!
elenimavrandoni (14241) 2014-05-05 21:34

Apurba20 (984) 2014-05-05 23:27
Vividness at its best. Love the POV.
The colors are excellent. Flowers do have such a life of their own.
PS: I am here after almost a month away from TE (for unavoidable reasons), am glad to see your photos again.
saxo042 (37058) 2014-05-06 0:05

abmdsudi (41266) 2014-05-06 6:48
That's an uplifting landscape to view, that sea of red colours me blind! and filled with brilliant light and deep blue sky. This is just so beautiful - and long may such wondrous sight continue to be photographed and painted like this. A remarkable image and your usual seamless lens work, Congrats
rychem (20861) 2014-05-06 8:38
Great! Simply superb, fantastic sea of tulips
PiotrF (5936) 2014-05-06 10:30
Another attractive capture of the tulips landscape. 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
UlfE (14641) 2014-05-06 10:39
I really enjoy your composition where make use of the space between the rows of tulips. The colours are also very nice in the beautiful spring weather. TFS and have a nice evening!

Une autre belle vue de la plantation de tulipes!
Bon POV, de jolies couleurs, une bonne netteté.
Je salue et je vous souhaite une bonne nuit
photoray (10965) 2014-05-06 16:38
Impressive immense tulip field with parallel lines of blooms progressing from foreground to the distant horizon. And the flat land adds to the geometrics.
Thanks for sharing,
williewhistler (13125) 2014-05-07 4:55
fields of tulips are something that we don`t see here in the West Country so it is always pleasing to view such vibrant colours.
Looking along the rows of cultivated flowers gives the picture a nice deep perspective whilst the blue sky is in perfect proportion for the attractive scene.
Best regards Les.
ikeharel (54195) 2014-05-07 9:12
Tulips had grown a bit since the last photo taken, John, and a marvelous red and pink mingling furrows, all in great depth enhanced by the strait lines toward the horizon. Stunning view collected.
eldancer1 (26092) 2014-05-07 10:09
Beautiful landscape of flowers! I used to visit the tulip farms outside Portland, Oregon, when I live there. Awesome capture with good pov and dof with nice details. Wonderful colors. Well done, tfs.
kato (11630) 2014-05-07 12:25
You're capturing well this tulip field by a good angle, a good perspective and excellent tone/clarity, so it's interesting and impressive to see red and pink tulips in flat field. Surely, the tulip is typical spring flower, and the Dutch tulip fields is the best in the world. And, it harmonizes well with the blue sky of spring.
omid266 (3651) 2014-05-07 20:08
Dear my friend,
very very large beautiful area covered with eye- catching pretty red Tulips,

Yes, another very pleasant photo documenting the tulip season. A lovely combination of colors, TFS.
Waylim (25172) 2014-05-07 23:01
Another classic tulip field with brilliant blue sky and red hot tulips. Love the perspective with all the lines leading to the horizon. I am imagine seeing this like from the air. It must be like a huge carpet cover the whole contry side.
mesutilgim (81392) 2014-05-08 4:04

gildasjan (41212) 2014-05-08 10:05
Toute la beauté de votre Pays est résumée dans cette image.Quoi de plus que les couleurs vives des tulipes sous un bleu ciel aussi agréable ?

Didi (55537) 2014-05-09 4:13
Bonjour mon ami
Encore une belle piste d’atterrissage pour abeilles
Magnifique perspective colorée sous une très belle luminosité
Kamilutka (8095) 2014-05-09 7:07
simplicity and focus on the colors are the biggest strengths of this picture. The central part is mainly red but both sides change the tones and that breaks the monotony. The has been set at the classic 1/3 and the proportions work very well here. I like the rows between the flower beds which make the image geometry more interesting. Nicely saturated colors and excellent sharpness.
Thanks for sharing
Buin (42262) 2014-05-10 2:08
This kind of agriculture always again is fascinating and a pleasure to look. These rows of flowers lead the eyes wonderfully to the background - and the colour palette simply is stunning. What a sight!!!
Don't worry about the a bit pale sky. It goes wonderfully with the strong colours of these fields.
Greetings from cool and rainy Westphalia - and have a nice weekend!
erhan1958 (14811) 2014-05-10 3:14
102 points from me. a great perspective.
I wanted to be there.
greetings. have a nice weekend
josepmarin (57627) 2014-05-13 5:18
this shot offers us a wonderful spring scene, where the stripes of the tulips field lead our eyes towards the far horizon line, in a very deep image.
I like the structure of your framing, under the thirds rule, and the fantastic blue sky as an efficient backdrop, which adds a beautiful chromatic contrast into the ensemble.
A breathtaking photo, my friend.
carper (96) 2014-05-13 10:07
ja het blijft mooi John,
heel goed gemaakt.
jcpix (12574) 2014-05-13 16:40
You know, a perfectly blue sky might actually be a little too good...the slight haze and color fade gives this a very natural appearance. It certainly doesn't take anything away from the colorful field of tulips, they're vibrant and radiate a Spring fresh sensation to the imagery. Another solid composition that uses the converging perspective to perfection, taking us from the foreground to the horizon with clear distinction. What else is there to say other than 'beautiful!' :) Have a great day ahead. All the best.
Periko (2517) 2014-05-13 20:26
The iconic Dutch flower.
This field is amazing in beauty, colors and size.
I think that to cultivate these flowers it is necessary to have a special attitude and mentality.
irek1 (823) 2014-05-15 11:06
I just love simplicity of that composition. Colors of tulips are amazing. Contrast between clarity of blue sky and red pink yellow and green strips of tulips is great. Perfect photo.
fritzi007 (3487) 2014-05-16 16:05
ein Foto im farbenrausch, großartig!!!
Indrasish (2833) 2014-05-17 0:38

rsabhijith (129) 2014-07-16 9:23
Beautifully captured tulip farm, perfect positioning of the camera. This place is a feast for our eyes, whatever be the POV. I'd love to see the same field a bit higher from ground.
Greetings of the season..!
ChrisJ (95174) 2014-07-17 2:16
Amazing repetition of the red tulip flowers with good sharpness and a nice warm versus cold colour contrast between the blue sky and red flowers. I like the diminishing linear perspective and vanishing point. The strip of pink and yellow blooms at right add interest. Tfs!
berek (35480) 2014-07-17 7:55
very beautiful flowers. perspective has been very successful. lost in photography happens.
Selmik (3188) 2014-08-09 12:15
Beautiful picture of the field of tulips. Lovely colors and clarity, nice perspective and admirable contrast between blue sky and lines of red tulips.

Les couleurs sont superbes. un grand bravo
stego (23636) 2014-09-17 15:21
The famous Dutch tulip fields... We all have seen much photos of it, but it is never too much, specially when they are gorgeous like this one. It's interesting that you chose to have more sky than earth, but the result is surely great.
TFS, regards, José.
