Among several other things, The Netherlands is also famous for its tulips. I believe, it gained popularity due to the (in)famous Tulip Mania about which, you can read in wikipedia. I had the opportunity to visit the gardens this spring. At one point of time, I felt that there were more people than flowers. Nonetheless, the garden is very well maintained and offers a visual delight. Sharing some of the photographs.
Many people will consider me crazy for shooting flower and flower garden in black and white. Apart from being wavelength of light waves, colours are nothing but perspectives. It is much like a different angle of view.
