For all the big fans of flowers – this article is just for you! Spring is in the air, flowers and trees are blooming and you can feel it in the air. It is the best time for photographers to pick their cameras up and perpetuate alluring sceneries.
Many of you have heard about Keukenhof – the most famous tulip garden in the world. Millions of tourists visit the garden every spring, which is a lot considering it is only opened for sightseers for one season. A hard-working crew organizes the garden and makes sure everything is subordinated to perfection. And despite the situation worldwide, workers made it sure the garden looks as good as ever this year.
Unfortunately, due to the coronavirus outbreak, this year the garden is closed for the first time in 71 years. However, the flowers are still blooming and there is always someone to take proper care of them. All gardeners are in their work positions and didn’t stop working during the lockdown.
You can find tulips everywhere, but most commonly they grow in the countryside. If you are a professional photographer or just love photographing, always snap a photo of a tulip. They are easy to find and you can photograph them from any angle – they will still be perfect. When it comes to Keukenhof, it is truly hard to photograph part of it without people. But this year, photographers have the best chance to make the most amazing photos, showing nature in its true self. One photographer from the Netherlands took the opportunity and got permission to photograph the garden for a day.
When he went to the park, everything was in order like always. The flowers bloomed, the sun was shining – everything was perfect. It is an incredible experience to walk there alone, with only the birds singing and the wind blowing. In such times when no one is permitted to visit the park, you can photograph paths and angles in a certain way you won’t be able to see when the park is crowded.
