The ravishing bulb gardens of Keukenhof should be designated a ‘wonder of the world’ for there is truly nowhere else that can offer such a vast collection of such intense and deeply saturated colours. There are too many varieties of tulips to count and if you thought you were familiar with most varieties, stand by for a surprise!

The ravishing bulb gardens of Keukenhof should be designated a ‘wonder of the world’ for there is truly nowhere else that can offer such a vast collection of such intense and deeply saturated colours.
Each autumn, an enormous amount of creative thought, planning and design goes into the way in which the displays will be appearing in the spring. For the photographer who is fortunate enough to be there at this optimum time, the opportunities are limitless with blazing colour of a natural vivid intensity that almost demands the wearing of sunglasses. There are stunning geometrical patterns offering sweeping diagonals, elongated diamonds, triangles, panoramics and recession that seems to extend as far as the eye can see.
There are too many varieties of tulips to count and if you thought you were familiar with most varieties, stand by for a surprise!
Our colour extravaganza will begin with a ‘dive into the deep end’ and we will go straight to Keukenhof Gardens and spend the next two days there working with Sue who will always be on hand to assist you to get the best of this breathtaking location. On the third day, we will continue to concentrate on flowers and if weather permits we will step outside Keukenhof and photograph the stunning lines of hyacinth and tulips, which stretch out over three hundred metres. This is where both the wide angle and telephoto lens can be used to great effect.
Sue will look forward to welcoming you on our third photography workshop in Keukenhof Gardens.
Staying at Hotel Sassenheim-Leiden for 3 nights
Sue Bishop is a fantastic instructor spending individual time with each student to improve their work. It was a highlight of our 2 week trip to the Netherlands! Booking with Light and Land was easy and their staff responded quickly and accurately to our questions. Hardest part was finding them to begin with. Several participants in our delightfully small class had been on previous workshops with them and now we know why. Destination exceed our admittedly high hopes . Highest compliment is both my husband and I found we shoot differently as a result of working with Sue. Candace - June, 2017
Very impressed by the tour organisation and Sue's attention to detail. She had time for everyone and made sure she divided her time equally between all of us. Fiona - June, 2017
