My daytrip at the Keukenhof Gardens, a mere 3 years ago, was absolutely perfect. The sun was out, shiny and warm, the drive through the tulip fields was dreamy and the gardens were filled of millions of colorful flowers. It really didn’t get any better than that.
While any level of photographer would be in heaven there, the amateur-blogger-photographer (yes, that is an official level) in me opted for the macro lens that day. And boy, I’m so glad I did! I got some amazing shots with an incredible amount of details – despite the fact that it’s been a while since my visit, these flowers still adorn my screensaver today. Have a look at my very best photos of Keukenhof Gardens for yourself!
This one is probably my favorite of all. I love how the yellow slowly merges into vibrant red. Nature really does know how to make pretty things!
There’s no doubt in my mind that if you visit Amsterdam in the spring, you simply MUST make a daytrip to the Gardens, even if you are not a nature’s lover or the proud owner of a green thumb (I am neither – I hate camping and I killed an aloe vera). The drive through the tulip fields alone is worth the trip! Tickets are only €21, and I think it’s rather well spent euros. Even though back then, I was totally broke during that leg of my eurotrip and finished the day eating crackers by a canal for dinner – it was still worth it.
