Photographs in the last few weeks show the stunning kaleidoscope of colors bursting into bloom in Holland’s tulip fields.
Beginning in late March, millions of blooms have been delighting visitors in the Netherland with their patchwork of color.
British photographer Matt Cooper was one of those visitors. The 48-year-old from London traveled over the Easter weekend and shared his images and drone footage.
The images show Holland’s famous flower field landscapes, which have become a rich blanket of tulips with row upon of row of vivid block colors.
“I went there especially to shoot the tulips,” he said. “This is the best time to shoot them, as they flower in April and May every year.”
Cooper’s 4-day trip took him all over the country capturing the iconic fields by drone—especially the famous Keukenhof Tulip Gardens, one of the world’s largest flower gardens.
The Garden holds an annual festival—but 2022 is the first time the festival has been open to the public since the pandemic. It runs through 15 May.
Cooper said the Dutch people take their tulips very seriously, and across the small country, “there are hundreds of millions of tulips’.
“The weather was beautiful too.”
