Our national flower park 'The Keukenhof' was completely crowded this Easter weekend. Traffic got completely stuck on the access roads and people were asked to avoid visting these days .
Fortunately I have some flower fields nearby (although tourists tend to stampede through those as well ).
Nevertheless I managed to take some shots of this colour burst with Trioplan 2.8/100mm on my A99ii. I Hope you like them.

These are really cool, TFS. Your set prompted me to google this lens because of the bokeh's 'look'. You've used it well!

Thanks Wesley ! Always nice to hear that others are inspired by your work. It is a great lens indeed, so it's pretty popular and thus expensive.
If you can afford it, go for it! Be aware though, the Meyer GAS can be extremely contagious . I was infected by some well respected fellow Dyxumers as well. Looking forward to your first results. I guess you know we have a dedicated Meyer thread

Hi Fred,

Every bit as good as I recall 'The Keukenhof' to be without all that stress! We have toyed with the idea of returning quite a few times but, on hearing this, we will have to select our visit dates very, very carefully indeed by the looks of it...

But - on to the images! They are all rather super and, depending on your own personal likes and dislikes for OoF Bokeh, then you'll either love them or hate them (I suspect it's a 'Marmite Lens' in that respect - go look it up! ). Me? I love the effect it gives!

As long as there is something sharp in the image then it's fine (others might say there's no need for that to be the case in all images; I think, for flowers, one expects a sharp edge somewhere in the shot?). From the set, the take-out shots are #'s 1, 3, 4, 5, 7, 8, 12 and 13! Strange how the ones I like the most are of the purple/red variety...? Perhaps I like the contrast to the surroundings a little more on these but, overall, I think it's how these show the delicacy of the petals and the play of shadows on the flowers themselves that appeals the most.

Thanks for sharing these (and hope the traffic calms down a little now Easter is out of the way!).

Best regards, Neil.
My Mantra: "Comment on other's work as you would wish to have yours commented upon". Go on - it's fun!

Thanks for your kind comments Neil! (only just noticed your mantra signature for the first time!).
There were 200.000 visitors this weekend! So better to pick another day if you want to go indeed. I know Marmite, didn't have to look it up. It is known here as well (although not widely) . You love it or hate it, but I must confess that I don't eat it
I have a few more shots of this series, but felt this was enough for now here. I will share theme in other threads in due course.
Best regards, Fred

beautiful series Fred! love 'em all!
apart from all of the Trioplan magic, I do have a slight preference for the sky colours you picked ;-) for pics #13 and especially #4, gorgeous. like you added a '50s' feel to them.
if these were genuine tulip fields, I hope you brought a serious WA along as well. and will show us more?

TY Neil! learning something new every day...
(marmite? brr -of course I know what it tastes like. grew up with British friends. i.e. their mum was-. ;-)).

could you be more specific pls? came across several lenses, a Nikon, a Sony... but it's an effect, r? not 'just' a lens. (trying to wrap my head around... ). like Orton FX or lenses that cause dizziness in general or ... ?

Thanks Ine! I had the 16-35 in the bag, but was mainly focussed on shooting with the Trioplan.

Here's one at 35mm


At the other hand, I was a day late. The tulips were being beheaded already, destroying a nice view on the fields
