This photograph has-been taken yesterday, in the morning with a little bit fog in background

In spring time we see a very wonderful nature, every day I enjoy the wonderful fields of Tulips of potato’s or other fruits.
The farmers are busy with work on the fields, for a picture of them field this is no problem, yes with much pleasure.

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopaedia;
Tulips cannot be grown in the open in tropical climates, as they require a cold winter season to grow successfully. Manipulation of the tulip's growing temperature can, however, allow growers to "force" tulips to flower earlier than they normally would.
Some historical cultivars have had a striped, "feathered", "flamed", or variegated flower, as in the illustration. While some modern varieties also display multicoloured patterns, this results from a natural change in the upper and lower layers of pigment in the tulip flower. Historical variegated varieties- such as those admired in the Dutch tulipomania gained their delicately feathered patterns from a viral infection. The mosaic virus is carried by peach potato aphids, Myzus persicae, an insect common in European gardens of the seventeenth century, in which peach trees were often a prominent feature. While the virus produces fantastically beautiful flowers, it also causes the plant to sicken and die slowly. Today, it has been almost completely eradicated from growers' fields.

I hope that you enjoy.

Bonjour John,
je me suis baladé il à a une quinzaine de jours à Lisse et Noordwijk, où j'ai pu aussi admirer ces champs aux millions de tulipes et autres fleurs.
Une photo qui manque un peu de focus mais hautement colorée.
Bien amicalement.

Hi John,
very impressive and eye catcher scene with superb colours and details..a wonderful tulip field..great painting an amazing atmosphere..TFS

Olá John, these colorful stripes of tulips on the fields make stunning visual effects. I feel the red ones could be used as passways for kings in ceremonial celebrations. Superb capture with a wonderful combination of colors. Here, I'm surrounded by agricultural fields but the main vegetable now is aspargus which doesn't make a pretty sight of the field.
best regards,

Hi John,
amazing view. My eyes hurt looking at that the colors are so strong and beautiful. Very nice composition, not only colors but also the lines make a great effect here.
The lines are arranged asymmetrically which makes me feel like I am tilting to the right being so drunk with the intense smell of the flowers.
Very well caught. I hope I can see that some time in the future by myself. It must be even more impressive in the reality.
Very well done,

Hi John
It's that time of year. Where I live (in a cold climate they were out planting tulips in the local park today, so very timely!
Great lines of colour converging into the background.

Zeer mooi en heel toepasselijk. Toepasselijk voor de tijd van het jaar en voor Nederland natuurlijk. Door je pov heb je een hele goede diepte, een mooi lijnenspel en aantrekkelijke kleurenvlakken.

Hi John. Truly a sight for the eye and the soul. The wonderful colors are fantastic. The tulips in the spring show at its best. Regards, Wolfgang.

Enormously bright colours of these flowers! Interesting to see the attached satellite view, where all the colours are gone... This kind of view is amazing and quite different from the fields of wood anemones that we can find here in Sweden.
Kind regards

Les couleurs de ces fleurs sont impressionnantes.
Le fait qu'elles soient regroupées donne une saturation qui attire le regard dès la vignette.
Malheureusement, l'image penche un peu et l'arrière plan n'est pas assez flou ou l'est trop pour lui donner un sens artistique. Dommage que la lumière soit si dure.



Tu ne pouvais pas laisser passer le printemps sans nous offrir une magnifique photo de cet endroit si coloré actuellement.

An orgy of colours, a spectacle which never fails to amaze us. I imagine what it should be in reality!
This photo should be used as a flag for Holland.

Hi John,
Nice image, very deep and colorful.
The stripes of red and yellow tulips have a great chromatic strength, very agreeable at sight, and at the same time they add an elegant geometric graphism to the composition.
A great work, my friend.
Best regards,

Hello John,
from the thumbnail I can recognize a JHM's image! It's absolutely splendid, the perspective is perfect, the colors are spectacular, the quality is excellent.
These red and yellow flowers are a joy for the eyes! Congratulations, TFS.

Ma anche meravigliose foto.

Hello john,

No doubt where this is..!
When I go to the florist to get tulips I have to pay equivalent to 1USD each, and now I trying to figure out the worth of this field hahaha...
Colourful, good lines and very springish..!

Hi John
Well you can't beat the colour red to attract the eye. Lovely converging lines that has become a trademark of yours. Well done.

A wonderful contrast between the two colours John and I like the perspective with the trees in the background. We had tulips planted in the park opposite our house a few weeks ago but nothing on this scale, it must be a fantastic site to see so many in one place?

Amazing colours, John!
Beautiful composition of the bright yellow and red strips of tulips converging in the horizon.


Hi John
Very eye catching and wonderful field of Tulips from the mother country with superb colour combination and graphism. Nicely framed, great contrast and perfect saturation. TFS

Outstanding take!

Hi John, Beautiful lines of bright reds & yellows, these Tulips show how wonderful & simple nature can be, kind regards Wilson.

I can't believe such fields actually can exist - not in some artist's imagination. John, thank you for share.

Hi John,
bel campo di tulipani e ottimo contrasto cromatico tra i fiori rossi e quelli gialli.
Ottimo il DOF.


Hi JOhn,

Hi John
What a superb landscape and the sea of red and yellow tulips. Such awesome vivid colors in tremendous depth and perspective with strong diagonal lines and good vastness of space. Specks of green contrasting colors in the backdrop and blue sky combine to make this such a very delicious landscape look at. Amazing glorious of colors. Really like the sense of flower power here, Super! TFS

Hello John,
a very eye-catching and pleasing picture with decisive, vibrant, colourful perspectives. I love the intensity of the red and yellow colours that stand out strikingly against the tones of the sky and the landscape. A playful dynamic composition that matches the mood created by the colours superbly. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a lovely month,
