STOPS ALONG THE WAY

TULIPS (TWO PHOTOGRAPHS)

24 Comments

It’s a bit soon for tulips here. I took these photos last May at the annual tulip festival, a very popular event in Ottawa. The colour and variety and sheer number of flowers is extraordinary. It was difficult to move for all the people and I was limited to closeups of the tulips. Not a bad thing but I had also wanted to try some wide angle shots of the flowerbeds that seemed to stretch on forever. Maybe this year if I get up really early before the crowds…

  2. Love the sunlight illuminating one tulip bloom. I wasn’t interested in tulips until I visited Keukenhof. Now I’m obsessed.

  4. The colours and light are magnificent, Belinda! It is too early here for tulips as well, but very much looking forwards to them 🙂

  6. They’re beautiful! I love the colors. They say Spring to me.

    I have the same problem when I visit the Tulip garden in Golden Gate Park. TOO many people! One really needs to be the first there to get wide angle views of the flower beds.

  8. Tulips are such happy spring flowers. I didn’t know until I went to a tulip festival that they actually have a very delicate fragrance. Beautiful photos. Gives me hope for spring.
