It’s All About the Low Country …

Just got back from 4 days in the Low Country … known also as the Netherlands, Holland and Pays-Bas. I was sponsored by the Netherlands Tourism Board to go photograph the tulips, which are in full bloom this week, as well as the surrounding areas. I spent only one day in Amsterdam and three in Haarlem (their’s is a bit nicer than ours).

I wish I had the ability to capture in a photo what these massive fields of brilliant exploding colors really looked like. This time of year, many parts of that country look like a 3D painting.

Highlights of the trip included:

* exploring the picturesque town of Edam

* a private boat trip through canals surrounding the fields adjacent to the Keukenhof flower park

* a guided visit through the massive Bloemenveiling international flower market and auction

* outstanding Mexican food in Haarlem (most important)

(OK, I wish it was this good but it really was surprisingly good)
