Spectacular. When I first brought the page up and saw it out of the corner of my eye, I thought of a woven Guatemalan carpet. Instead, we have an equally colorful carpet of tulips – thanks to you.

Amazing! I have always wanted to go there and see that for myself. Thanks for the wonderful photo. I just shared it with my two small children.

What an amazing tapestry of colors!
So that’s what you call the “Tulip Mania” of yore.

Knockout colours, one of the best landscapes on here for some time; Original and refreshing. Love the title also. As I write this I am playing my favourite track by Sting, Fields of Gold. Heavenly. Thank You for this.

This is wonderful, I have seen whole fields of one colour tulips but have not seen these strips before, Magical.

Stunningly Beautiful.

Such strong colors – without looking over done or too manipulated.

My cousin,in Holland, worked there for many years with the tulips. I now see the attraction. Thank you

A remarkable sight! I have never seen Royal & Purple tulips.

5th July 2009 at 3:45 am

I thought it was a painting. Pretty amazing. I have a blog on nature photography. Nothing quite like that here though.

5th July 2009 at 7:49 am

Very nice shot indeed. It really expresses color in the deep natural form. Great Idea.

I’ve seen acres of white cotton fields, and I’ve visited large commercial rose gardens; but they do not compare to the vivid rainbow stripes of these beautiful tulip fields!

I can’t stop looking at your wonderful photo. Thank you so much!

Wow, it remind me of a scarf knitted out of scraps.


30th July 2009 at 8:04 am
