Tulips: The definitive thread

Postby Thomas » Sat May 03, 2008 7:34 pm

Warning: Trivial Photos!
As simple as it might seem - and my wife likes to call those shots "trivial", as in "seen a thousand times" - but I could not refuse from shooting, processing and posting these lovely black, red&gold flowers.

I simply can't get enough of those :roll:
Hope you enjoy them as I do...

If you click on his pictures it will get you ti his flickr account. And then click on more properties and it will give you whole EXIF data.

Let's continue the tread. I was just thinking about making definite tread for garden flowers and then I saw this.

There is mine

Had to smile here for a reason that might not be that obvious to members from other countries ...

Apart from that, I like picture 1 and 2 the best. The third one is "just" a plant-like palette of colors to me and could be anything, not necessarily a tulip.

regards,

But there is not only black, red and gold in tulip colors, Look here for a pale looking blossom:
