Photographer's Note

Before sunrise at a tulip field, stone throw away from the famous Keukenhof garden. Early tulips for "tourist fun" as they're planted there especially for heart warming views from windmill in Keukenhof and for cyclist/hikers arriving or leaving the garden.
There hasn't been so many tulips this year on normal (production) bulb fields, unfortunately.

For me it was the first time ever (in my 7th spring in Netherlands) that I was blessed with windless, misty weather at sunrise. Normally I shoot sunrise at tulip fields 5-6 times a year and 90% of times I got (very) strong wind. The remaining 10% is rain, obviously ;)

The photo is made with a 3-stop Reverse ND filter. Quite a lot for this kind of scenery, but I like how the yellow flowers jump out against the sky. As for saturation - it obviously is up to my taste. Truth being said with this lens and filters I didn't need to do much more with Lightroom sliders...
