    Posted: 04 May 2019 at 14:32
We visited Lisse in Netherlands a couple of weeks back for the tulip season. The countryside is here is absolutely beautiful and stunning. The village/town centre is small and nice. We had some very very nice tea here. The people were just as lovely as their fields. Think we will go back next year again.
But it is very seasonal and timing it is hard especially if you are not around very long.

I know the thread title says Tulip fields because that's what they are famous for but that's not the only flower field we see here. So there are pictures of Daffodils too.

All shot with Sony 24-105mm and laowa 15mm.

#1 - 105mm, f/8, 1/50


#2 - 15mm, f/11, 1/8


#3 - 30mm, f/16, 1/100


#4 - 28mm, f16, 1/100


#5 - 28mm, f16, 1/100


#6 - 100mm, f4, 1/125


#7 - 105mm, f/11, 1/160, handheld focus stacked from 3 shots


#8 - 100mm, f/11, 1/60


#9 - 100mm, f/11, 1/60


#10 - 15mm, f/11, 1/60


#11 - 105mm, f/11, 1/125


#12 - 15mm, f/11, 1/50


#13 - 15mm, f/11, 1/50


#14 - 56mm, f8, 1/60

Great .. so typical dutch. For atmosphere, #3,4,5 are the best imo. Technically i prefer #6,8,9. TFS Anand .

Good to see a foreign view on the Dutch tulip fields! #6 and 9 are my favourites. TFS

Marvelous images of a lovely scenery!

I am particularly fond of #9 - it's a bit "cooler" than #8, but I like that very much. The contours of the leaves are just growing out of my monitor screen! Absolutely outstanding in my eyes - in a set with many highlights, as #6 for example - just to mention another one.

TFS!

The first seven are very good. If these were mine I would personally clone out the streaks that are in the sky in 2-5 as my eye went to them immediately and that’s a shame as the rest of the images are stellar. Thanks for sharing

You did well in this series
The rest of humanity, visiting this area, comes home with hard daylight shots, taken somewhere in the afternoon.
I particularly like #5 and #6 with the sunlit greenhouses.
Be yourself; everyone else is already taken

Thank you all for your compliments and comments. It especially nice to get compliments from local dyxumers and I see there are plenty of folks from Netherlands here

I guess the rest of humanity are not early riser like me. Forgot to mention in the OP, I got up at 5.30am for the sunsire to take these shots. Since we were staying in Lisse and bus connections were decent around the area it wasn't too bad to get to them.

@Chris, I hadn't actually paid much attention to the streak but now that you mention its distracting me too. Thanks for the feedback I'll clone them out.

Fixed (clones out) the streaks in the sky in #3-5 in OP
Decided to leave #2 as it is as I didn't find it too distracting.

Oh no! You should give Lisse a visit. I don't know where you live but it's a very nice place if your can visit it easily. There is also nice beach to the west.
But it's probably late for daffodils this year.

Thanks for the compliments

TY! I'm very familiar with the neighbourhood. (i.e. province). but not necessarily with the flowering fields, other than from a distance. without the urge to take pics, I wouldn't be drawn to them at all?
(fact! visitors from abroad are so much more familiar with our touristic venues than the dutch themselves? ;-)).
but the daffodils were a surprise!

(living on what many like to refer to as 'the dutch riviera'. , in the south, at sea. -about a 2 hour drive?-.
planned to visit the tulip fields in our province, across the water, in the southernmost part of Holland, but didn't happen).
I do prefer our beaches.
did you go to the beach? (how was the ☼ weather?)

(loads of tulips in this country.
https://www.myfootprints.nl/tulip-fields-in-holland/the-best-places-to-see-tulip-fields-in-holland/
care to see what's on my bucket list? more up north, in Broek op Langedijk /'Trousers on Longdike'? in West-Friesland (thus Noord-Holland).
would really like to visit 'this': https://en.broekerveiling.nl/ there are many tulip fields in the vicinity as well!
-it is Fred-county! - ).

Thank YOU for the show! a real treat! wouldn't mind to see more?

Thanks for that website. Very informative, I might visit Noord-Holland next year instead of Lisse again. We absolutely loved the tulip fields and atmosphere.
Also the other place looks really awesome, would love a boat ride there. May be I should buy a drone too get some shots from above like in the video then I can use it to get a different perspective of the tulip fields too.

We did visit the beach briefly (~1hr). The weather was very nice, mostly clear skies.

I have got more tulip pictures from Keukenhof itself. I'll post them later when I get a chance to process them. Wonderful place but tulip Fields in the "wild" are our preference.

whereas Lisse and vicinity (have a brother in law + family living in Hillegom), aka de bollenstreek/'the bulb region', is probably the most famous bulb area (also because of de Keukenhof? + not too far from Volendam and Zaanse Schans for the ultimate nervewrecking touristic experience. -Zaanse Schans is a must btw-), it's by no means the only one.

https://www.holland.com/global/tourism/destinations/regions/flower-fields.htm
<The Kop van Noord-Holland boasts the world’s biggest flower field. This area transforms into a huge sea of flowers from mid-March to mid-May. The flowers are at their most beautiful towards the end of April. With its fantastic cycling and hiking routes past endless flower fields, this extraordinary area is a great alternative if you want to get away from the crowds in the Keukenhof.>
'the Kop van Noord-Holland' (tss) or literally 'the head of (the province of) Noord/North-Holland'i.e. most northern part.

or http://westfriesland.nl/?Categorie=Toerisme&Plaats=Westfriesland&Gelegenheid=Recreatie&SubGelegenheid=Bootverhuur
in 'english'. :-S but maybe you're able to guess that 'kaasmarkt' means cheese market (world famous!) and that a 'molen' is a mill. and bootverhuur boat rental.
(my mother was born in West-Friesland, while the family came from Den Helder. friends there as well).
Fred (native!) can give you all the specific info you'd need?!


and many more.
'this' is -down south- in our province (of Zeeland):

sub:'you don't have to go to the Keukenhof this year, you'll find these tulip fields in (the province of) Zeeland'

https://www.omroepzeeland.nl/nieuws/112182/Tulpentoeristen-naar-Graauw-voor-de-mooiste-lentefoto-s
'tulip tourists to Graauw for the most beautiful spring photos'
many farmers are not particularly fond of these visitors, stampeding through their fields to take their pics or selfies. to put it mildly? ;-)


of course you'll also find impressions of other parts of Holland on youtube.

or
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CVKtdjVLOEQ
drone might be a great idea! (although they came up with rules now).
came across tulip fields helicopter flights. ;-)


would love to see your pics of de Keukenhof! + all others.
(I don't get it! I could be totally happy with a WA near a bulb field or with a macro lens (or extension tubes) at de Keukenhof (if I survived paying the entrance fee), but don't think I'd enjoy a stroll there. (no, never been there. but seen lots of footage every year).
there will be plenty of bulbs at the Chelsea Flower Show? and your country is SO stunning! while most of the Netherlands is as flat as a pancake, except for the dunes and dikes. enough pretty locations, but no comparison.
I live in a (very!) touristic region, but wouldn't if it wasn't for our beaches?).   
don't know when you visited, but shame it was so cold for the time of year. while we also melted (heat wave) last year. and had a 'heat wave' in february and therefore all in bloom quite early.


about the Broeker museum? it's a pretty ancient auction house, built on 1900 poles, where the boats, loaded with produce, sailed through. (blown away by ancient footage, I'm unable to find now). oldest sail through vegetable auction house in the world. now museum.
I'd love to take pics there, providing views aren't blocked. but perhaps nowadays it has become frustratingly touristic?
instead of authentic?
and they charge hefty entrance fees as well (MO).
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IqWKpbYBgr8
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uMnMd84aALI

it's a watery area. with '1000 islands'. plenty of boat rides, 'whisper boat' rides and boat and canoe rentals.
the punt boats were used to bring cows from and to meadows as well. and there are still areas where cows take boat rides too.
