Tulip Fields Holland Image Gallery

Some more photos from the beautiful tulip fields of Hillegom in Holland.  The town is about 30 minutes by train from Amsterdam with the train station right next to the tulips fields. I set out after work in the evening with three cameras; my iPhone 7 plus, a Fuji x100t and my very first (budget) DSLR, the Pentax K-x DSLR. All these cameras produce nice images but the x100t is by far my favourite.

Dutch Tulip Fields in Hillegom South Holland
The forecast on my phone said it would rain, and it did! However, these were just heavy showers and soon passed, clearing the air.  The lines of tulips draw the eye towards the sky and cumulus clouds.

Shooting into the sun with Fuji x100t - red tulips
Shooting into the sun is not easy for two reasons. The camera will always try and adjust the exposure leaving the subject underexposed. It’s hard to see the image on the LCD due to the bright light. Setting the camera to manual and taking a few extra shots with different shutter speeds.

The aim here was to fill the frame with colour!
