Visit to Keukenhof Holland

Visit to Keukenhof Holland

The famous Keukenhof  bulb fields and gardens are a flora photographers and garden lovers dream come true. I expected to only see fields of tulips! At this time of year the tulip fields were not all in bloom. Nevertheless, the beautiful gardens were a delight and provided a wonderful opportunity to capture various landscapes.

The gardens where wonderfully designed with truly millions of tulips providing a glorious rainbow of colour.  Various garden displays provided a spectacular array of flowers including old favourites such as Hyacinths and Daffodils.

More then 7 million tulips, daffodils and Hyacinths fill over 32 hectares with their fantastic colours.

The gardens were vast and we were unable to see everything in the time allowed before returning to our coach.  I will hopefully go back one day but I will be flying next time. The coach journey took approx 15 hours!!

As I love macro photography I was in my element with such a vast display of subjects to photograph and I could have stayed there for a week but we needed to return to the coach.
