Flowers from The Netherlands

You may know the world-famous Keukenhof, the most beautiful tulip garden in the world, visited by millions of tourists every year.

This year Keukenhof is closed, for the first time in 71 years.

But that doesn’t mean there are no flowers. On the contrary; the flowers look incredible and get as much attention and care as always.

All the passionate gardeners do their work as they’re used to, because even without people, nature and the show of the garden goes on.

With the COVID-19 virus keeping everyone at home and tourists away, this photographer was given the unique opportunity to photograph Keukenhof in allits beauty without any people being present.

Wwalking around all alone, with only the sounds of birds and the incredible smell of all the flowers, was an experience by itself.

Sitting next to the flowers and the water, enjoying nature for 30 minutes was just a magical experience.

Having no people in the park allowed the photographer to show paths and angles in a certain way that you normally don’t get to see because of the crowds.

This photo series is an initiative in collaboration with Keukenhof to show the beauty of the park through these images. Too bad there’s no smell involved.
