Tulips

Ok, you know I’m not the landscape kind of guy, and especially not really flowers.
But let’s be honest if you life in an area that is known for the beautiful tulips (and no we don’t life near the keukenhof) you really can’t resist to shoot them when they are at their best right?

 

Every year we have the so called “tulips route”, it’s in essence a series of signs leading tourists (and us) through the best places to shoot the tulips, these are no parks or paid entree areas, this is just the area that I call my backyard, actually a lot of this is along my normal biking route, so you can understand why once every time I forget about models and street shooting and dive into the flowers, today some samples of what we see during a trip.

 

Shots were done with the Sony A7r and a Leica 28mm and 135mm manual focus lens.
