Keukenhof 2014

For second year in a row I went to the Keukenhof in The Netherlands. As last year, Birds As Art organised a photographic tour concentrating on visiting the tulip and bulb region. The Keukenhof is only open for 2 months of the year, displaying amazing gardens and flowers: an astounding 7 million bulbs are on display. The rest of the year the Keukenhof prepares for the next year. The Keukenhof attracts nearly one million visitors, of which 80% are foreign visitors. The Keukenhof is one of the main spring attractions in The Netherlands. The Keukenhof is an amazing place to visit to photograph and use your creative skills.

The group and I enjoyed ourselves thoroughly: a summary of my photos can be viewed here: http://www.naturenotions.ch/blog-galleries/keukenhof-2014.

Part of the photographic tour is to visit some of The Netherlands’s historic sites. I only had time to visit Kinderdijk, where the above image is a true black and white image, created in photoshop using a threshold layer.
