These picture has been taken in Oostburg Zealand in the Netherlands on 9 km of my home.
A pity of these picture, the sky was not clean or no lovely clouds.
Notwithstanding I like the perfection picture makes, I want these placing for the specially color of the tulips.
Also very difficult for take a nice image through the strong wind, the tulip are little bit in move, this is never perfect, also the few sun, which are flowers are not fully open.
These picture is taken with tripod, the angle is specially for the long perspective.

Tulips are spring-blooming perennials that grow from bulbs. Depending on the species, tulip plants can grow as short as 4 inches (10 cm) or as high as 28 inches (71 cm). The tulip's large flowers usually bloom on scapes or subscapose stems that lack bracts. Most tulips produce only one flower per stem, but a few species bear multiple flowers on their scapes. The showy, generally cup- or star-shaped tulip flower has three petals and three sepals, which are often termed tepals because they are nearly identical. These six tepals are often marked near the bases with darker colorings. Tulip flowers come in a wide variety of colors, except pure blue (several tulips with "blue" in the name have a faint violet hue.

I hope you like it.
