Crocus ‘Flower Record’
The weather was mostly sunny. It was a great time to walk through fields full of gorgeous tulips in different colours. This one caught the eye because of its colours. I chose to go close to the flowers for the shot.

The tulips were in Keukenhof, Holland. It is one of world’s largest flower gardens. It is located in Lisse, Southern Holland and can be reached by a 40 minute bus ride from Amsterdam Centraal.
I used my Canon EOS 550D DSLR camera for the shot. Focal lengrh was 53 mm. Exposure time was 1/20 sec., hand-held. No flash was fired. The lens was Canon EF-S18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS.
