This picture has been taken during a visit to one of the most beautiful rural areas out of my area, 6 km about the Netherlands border, to Aardenburg, one hour after a thunderstorm. I have waited on the farm to after the thunderstorm for make the picture.
The sky was dark blue not as usual.
Aardenburg a small city with a very nice history between Belgium and the North Sea.

The tulip has come to be a loved symbol of the Netherlands.
Many tourists visit the country just to see the bright colored flower and the astonishing view over the bulb fields. The season begins in March with crocuses, followed by the daffodil and the yellow narcissi. In April the hyacinths and tulips blossom to sometime in mid May, depending on the weather. Later, in August it is time for the gladioli. Even when spring is over, the Netherlands is still a garden, visitors can enjoy flowers in the Netherlands all year round.

I wish everyone a nice day.

BEAUTIFUL SHOT! I love these bands of colors, so clean, so well observed.

Hi John
a very beautiful photo.
probably one of your best tulip scenes.
the small red line above the white is a nice touch aswell.
without the blue sky, i think alot may have been lost, it adds another color contrast.
excellent overall scene

Bonjour John ,
MAgnifique effet de ce tapis de tulipes blanches , avec un liseré rouge et vert qui le sépare du ciel bleu . La belle ferme constitue un très bon point d'accroche .

Hello John

Terrific composition and colour. I like the way the bottom 2/3 shows us the mass of white flowers then the top is an explosion of colour.

Best wishes


Hi John,

The distance between the rows of tulips and the barn is giving depth to the composition. The point of view is showing the details and colors of the tulips. The early evening light is enhancing the colors. Have a nice day.

Hello John.
Those tulips look wonderful in such a mass display. The combination with the reds and the blue Spring sky is brilliant. I'm very impressed by the clarity and sharpness of the detail in the tulips in the foreground. You have excellent depth of field thanks to the small aperture.
Excellent work and a good note.

Salut John!

Ta photo est très intéressante sur le plan chromatique! Par ailleurs, j'aime beaucoup aussi l'angle de vue qui une bonne idée de profondeur. je suis toujours impressionné par la bonne définition de tes photos!

Je te souhaite une excellente fin de semaine!

Hello John,

I thank you for your kind review.
I have never seen the white Tulips as you have captured in this photograph. With a help of your image, I could almost reach out and touch the flowers. The foreground full of flowers. And you have captured a red strip of some kind of flowers. The red stripe is perfectly horizontal. And in the background, you have arranged several farming complex. All telling stories of arrival of real springtime. What a happy image this is. I could only say " Bravo John" The image is full of fulfilled happiness. Incredibly Sharpe image leaves a very strong impression on me. "Bravo" once again.

Hello John,
I love the strip colored with green and with red which shares the photo. I also like this field of spectacular tulip. Very beautiful image, another painting. Congratulations.
Have a nice evening

Bonsoir John
Bien vu ce champ de tulipes blanches et j'apprécie ici cette bande rouge au second plan créant la bonne séparation pour ce cadrage au tiers.

Hallo John,
De enorme zee van massa's witte tulpen is een prachtig zicht. Haarscherp met de groene stengels en bladeren die we op de voorgrond kunnen zien.
De smalle rode strook tulpen die we daarachter zien vormt een perfecte afbakening met de boerderij en de groene omgeving.
Het geheel heeft iets van een heel feestelijke stemming.
Vele groeten, Paul

Incredibly beautiful work. A perfect composition. The colors, the details are wonderful. Congratulations.

Hi John,
The red line across the picture is really well placed. A fascinating view with such an abundance of tulips, really strong colours! A calm and peaceful farm view behind.
Kind regards

Excellent depth and optimum light and color.

Hello John,
this composition is amazing and the best tulip scenes I ever seen. Excelentlly excecuted image. Fantastic management of light and wonderful colors. Super!!!!!

All the best,

Hi John. The photo shows your typical style. The special here is the white tulips - and the very intense colors. Overall, a great sight. Well seen and presented. Rgds, wolfgang.

Superbe champ de tulipes blanches sous une magnifique lumière. La composition dans ce format carré est excellente, seul le ciel me semble un peu "dégradé"?

Hi John,
This sea of white tulips bordered by the red river at the back is simply deligntful.
I think the grower wanted to match his fields to the colours of his barn :-)
The little bits of wilder vegetation represented by the trees at the back make a nice contrast.
Kindest regards.

My very best regards.

Hi dear John,
Another amazing capture from your famour tulp fields; this time white tulips; symbols of purity.
Again perfect pov and perfect compo.
Very nice framed, enriched wirh perfect and interesting notes.
TFS and best regards

Long DOF on the Tulips field, John.
Clear view of each stem of the white flower. I'd say, even just a smaller oicture with only the Tulips in FG would have been impressive, after cropped.

Hi John,
I like the good structure of the framing in thirds, with a few nice stripes with diverse colors, that they provide an excellent graphics to the composition.
The white tulips fill a wider part of the image, and other elements as the farm in background add a strong chromatic contrast because of its vivid colors. Light is great.
It is a very attractive and very elegant work, my friend.
Best regards,

Hi John,
Very beautiful carpet of tulips, well the two colors and the barn in the bg, well balanced.

Hello John,

You're capturing well this tulip garden by a good angle and excellent bright tone, so it's impressive to see both of white tulip and red turips in behind. Entire tone keeps good quality, too. The flower starts chiefly from the plum tree, and moves to cherry blossoms, the azalea, the rose, the tulip, the hydrangea, the helianthus, the lycoris, and the autumn tint in Japan.


Hello John
a great presentation
you'd get a magnificent view of tulips
very nice composition
I like very much

Hi John,
the white carpet of the tulips with the red ones on the end of the cultivated fields, make the scene so adorable.The brilliant light and the clear colours are so effective and create an adorable shot.


Another wonderful shot of the tulip fields my friend. The white contrast so well with the band of red and also with the fine looking buildings. The detail in the foreground is fantastic John, it's a lovely image.

Marvelous field of white tulips. I always thought that the cultivation of these flowers is a Dutch specialty. And as you can see them in any way the Belgians did not subside. Gorgeous color of this very magical photographs.


Dear friend, this comment is done by my wife, who was delighted with the beauty of this field with the mass planting of tulips.
Fantastic depth of field and choice of POV fabulous. Congratulations John.


Bonjour John,
Quelle merveille ce champ de tulipes blanches limité par celui des tulipes rouges !
Le Pays-Bas n'est pas loin ! Excellente profondeur de champ !

Dear John,

This is a classic shot on Trekearth from composition to implementation.The white tulips create a large carpet bordered by the red tulips. In the background the farm and the animals make a complementary backdrop.

Warm regards, good friend.


Wow! Beautiful capture of this tulip farm, that's one thing I miss about Portland, Oregon, they have lots of flower farms. Nicely captured with good dof with sharp details. Beautiful colors. Well done, tfs.

Hello John, such beautiful tulip field deserves to be photographed by a master like you. The strip of the red tulips which is squeezed between the blue sky and the white area and red roofed houses look very charming. Best regards and congratulations, Tolga

A very beautiful shot! The details of teh tulips in the FG are very beautifully captured. The fields work well in layers of flowers of different colours under a clear cyan sky. Very nice!
Best Regards

Hi John. All has been said already in praise of this exceptional image. I shall just reaffirm that the colours, layered composition and DOF are perfect.All the best. Klaudio.

namaste John,
it is lovely. Very nice perspective here with the flower bed at foreground with the nice cottage at BG. Excellent light and superb colours. Depth is endless. A very very good one. Tfs.
Best wishes.

Wow!!!This picture is wonderful and very pleasant for eyes.
Beautiful colors of this amazing tulips field.
Friendly regards.

Hello John,
I couldn't also help but appreciate this sheer photographic beauty. You are really lucky to be living close to these beautiful places. I see some pixel problems and halos in the sky, but this might be due to my old screen.
Best wishes,

Hello John,

This excellent canvas has been clicked by the camera but the scene has been composed by you. Cheers'.

I have not seen white tulips before this and you contrasted the white and red of the flower bed to that of the buildings in the back. The greens and blues are the icing on the cake.

Wish you all the very best

Een rustgevende en kleurige foto.

De open ruimte zorgt voor de
aangename rust en de goede

Bonjour John

Good capture of the white tulips with not a single one of them overexposed! I like the red trim border at the back formed by the red tulips. Good depth & sharpness. Tfs!

Hi John,

What a spectacular shot of this white flower field! Absolutely eye-catching and wonderful composition has been built up here. Thanks for sharing. Great Easter!


Well, that's a nice foreground:-))
We have them too these days, fields full of flowers and their colours including the Keukenhof, the place with more tourists than flowers:-))
I like how the small red line works too here.

Hi John

Another masterpiece from you.I like your shots from the field as they always carry great perfection.Good lighting and dof with nice details. Well done, tfs.

Best wishes

Nature is beautiful because God's hand is involved! But what makes a picture so beautiful and able to show all the natural beauty in small dimensions? A great photographer of course!In order to take a unique picture like this you have to be a poete, a writer, a priest, a naturalist, a beauty fan! And you are all that!

Hello John,
this place is very attractive and your composition and lighting have made the most of its character and of the brilliant sunny day. I love the strong and captivating depth that makes us want to go over the field of white tulips over and over. The marvellous sharpness and the vividness of the colours make the picture strikingly vibrant and very pleasant. Your work with the light is admirable. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a lovely weekend,

Hi John !!
Happy Easter.
I am relatively new to TE and hardly ever take notice of how popular or how many votes a certain photo has achieved.... but for some reason I looked at the info and saw 256 points
that is probably a TE record......CONGRATULATIONS.
Lovely photo with contrasting colours.

Dazzling white tulips field John, it's a gift appreciated to communicate feelings, excellent dof, harmonious hues

Hello John,
The red boundary of tulips on top of the white tulips has made this photo, TFS.

Hello John! Amazing white tulips, amazing field. Fantastic landscape. Original picture. Good cut. Very good format and frame. Regards!
