The World Needs More ... Tulip Photos?

Tulip colours abstract, Ottawa
More from the Tulip Festival, including something a little abstract. Parasol notes that not nearly enough people are paying photographic attention to the tulips this year. ;) Indeed, indeed.

Not too exciting, but I liked the glow from the light.

Wow! Another great collection of photographs. Nice work.

I tell you, those tulips are addictive! It's all about how the light hits those soft petals and how the colours bounce off of one another. It's got me hooked. I was out this morning to photograph the installation at the National Gallery and after that, it was like a huge magnet pulled me and my bike up to P. Hill where I took something obscene like 80 photos of tulips.

I've really got my eye on the pink ones at Dow's Lake. Now if only the blue sky would return.

Niiiiiiice. I really like your first abstract one.

Is the last one the tulip patch by Portage?

Yes it is, and they're actually all from that patch (except maybe the second-to-last, which might be from across the bridge/road, where there's a little patch near the fence by one of the industrial buildings ... Domtar?).

I heart industrial patch tulips.
