Lens artists photo challenge #199 is ‘mechanical/industrial’. I have a soft spot for planes coming over against the backdrop of the sky.
The Lens-artists challenge #197 is ‘rule of thirds’. The rule of thirds is a rule of thumb how to compose images. But a photo that creates a journey of the eye can also be made by using lines and colors. Even when the horizon is not on 1/3.
The Netherlands, Voorhout – April 2022
After two years of pandemic, the flower parade was finally back!
The Lens Artists Photo Challenge#144 for this week is ‘taking flight’. The flying objects in this photo are the clouds, chasing on the frisky Northern wind this morning. Covering the familiar display of rows of hyacinths in full bloom.
A last afterglow on the bulb fields. If you want to see flowers in bloom just check out the archives of flowers and Voorhout.
Meadows and scenery in a typical Dutch polder landscape.
Normally the bulb fields attract tourists in the Spring. The colours are always fantastic to see. Let alone the smell. In The Netherlands we are in an intelligent lockdown since March 12th. To prevent people from flocking into the bulb fields the growers decided to chop the heads sooner than normal. After all the bulbs that are on the field are meant to be sold, you can order them online from August. The flowers are taking too much strength out of the bulbs, that is why they are chopped off after flowering. Last weekend we spotted two fields still in bloom, and decided to have a closer look on a bicycle ride. This is what we found.
