We had gone to Longwood Gardens for their massive Tulip display. There were over 240,000 Tulips in displays around the gardens. We went on the peak weekend and there were plenty of flowers to photograph. I was trying to travel light in the morning so decided to use a close focusing 300mm lens for smoother backgrounds instead of one of macro lenses.
Here are a few from the start of my walk through the Gardens. Some of the close-ups are 2 or 3 Image stacks, shot at f/4, handheld, for more detail of individual flowers but keeping a softer background. The featured image is a 3 image stack, handheld.
Gorgeous flowers! There’s nothing quite like tulips!
Thanks! It was actually quite overwhelming! 240,000 tulips in the one large area. I have to take there word on the count, I did not take the time to count them! Too busy photographing them.
