I've been planning and wanting for a while now to capture a tulip field in full bloom. It's a little cliché to shoot if you live in the Netherlands but it's just one of those things you just have to have done one in your life.

I searched for the best spot, easily accessible whilst the weather didn't play along for weeks. Yesterday the weather finally cleared just a little before sunset and I grabbed my stuff and went for it...

Just to realise when i arrived at my chosen location that someone had been here before me... All the good tulip-shots were allready taken ;)

Seemed that the time for tulips in bloom was over and all the flowers were 'topped' to cultivate the bulbs in the ground...

I have to wait for next year... But at least I got this shot and a nice location!
