Hello dear TL-friends,

I say "Goodbye" to the tulips from 2009.....and I say "Goodbye" to my series "Colors of Spring".

All these beautiful colors of spring are gone!
When I was on this plot last week to make some new pictures the bulbs breeder came with his tractor.

At the front of this tractor the "mowing machine" was mounted to remove the heads of the tulips.

On the back was a spraying machine mounted.
Why should cut tulips are sprayed?

The mower makes small cutting wounds on the plants and through these wounds, the plant can be infected with viruses or bacteria.
Therefore a protective preventive spraying is needed.

In the Workshop I upload 2 more pictures.
There you can see how it all works....

I hope you enjoyed this colorful series....

Nice play of colors here Adri, striking everywhere. The light and POV are great, such a breathtaking scene you shared in this one, I love it. Well captured!


Te ZOT voor woorden.!
Zou een buitenstaander ook dit werk kunnen noemen, toch ?
Veel mensen wten niet waarom dat zo moet.
Mooi vastgelegt, al moet ik zeggen, de rode kleuren lopen hier dicht.
De scherpte ligt te veel naar achter.
Zal zo effe kijken naar de WS
Fijne dag,

Oh Adri, how sad - all those beautiful flowers cut off like this. They look like they are in full bloom. Such strong vibrant colours

Are they only grown for their bulbs? The 2 photos are very interesting.

Thank you - but still sad :)

Greetings to you from New Zealand

Hi Adri !

Very nice and interesting capture.
Colors and contrast are excellent top.
A beautiful picture.
And we say Thank you very much for these beautiful pictures.
Have a nice day,

Hello Adri! Wonderful field of tulips. Amazing car. Wonderful colours. Good POV and capture. Fantastic effect. Well done!

Hi Adri!

Very nice colours of Spring! Really pleasure!

Thank you,

Your series has been so great Adri!
The tulip harvest has begun I see! On the field that I've seen here in Canada, this is done by hand, but of course, it's a far smaller scale here than in Holland.
Great vibrant colors again, and great composition.

Hoi Adri,
Een prachtige Hollandse foto. Ik heb nooit geweten dat men zo omgaat met de tulpen, dus weer iets geleerd.

Ik heb het gevoel dat je iets te veel verzadiging hebt toegevoegd. De kleuren zijn een beetje te .....

Een heel goede foto Adri met een beetje triest tintje ook wel .....

and what do they do with the flowers ?

you increased the saturation to a spectacular show of colors, which suits to the composition
very nice shot and interesting to know the existence of this machine
now, what do they do after this ???

Bonjour Adri,

Quelle cruauté comment se terminent ces pauvres fleurs qui ravivaient ta jolie campagne, le cliché est certes grandiose de part les couleurs de celles qui ne se sont pas encore fait couper la tête!!!
J'ai beaucoup de mal à supporter un tel désastre!!!
Mais j'ai beaucoup aimé tes photos

Wonderful colors of spring Adrî.Very nice composition.Colors and contrast are excellent.
Regards from Mesopotamia.

Hi Adri,
What a colorful image vith excellent POV and perspective.TFS.


It must be heartbreaking to see all those wonderful fields losing their colour and returning to normal :-)
Glad to see you making the most of the colours before thet go for another year. TFS
warm regards

A very interesting post!! Informative note. Excellent detail and colors once again. TFS

Bonjour Adri.
Excellente image qui montre un sujet intéressant, je me suis souvent demandé comment on récoltait ces fleurs.
La qualité photographique montre aussi de belles couleurs dans une composition parfaitement nette.
Bonne journée et merci de cette information.

Oh! So gorgeoous!

Wow! What an amazing place to live. You've taken full advantage of your talent and surroundings in providing these beautiful photos. It makes me want to go out and buy bulbs for next Spring.
