Tulip colour explosion - Italian style


Although it's already two months ago I took these tulip photos in the Parco Giardino Sigurta at Valeggio sul Mincio, Italy, south of Lake Garda, I don't want to withhold them from you.


I guess that you might still find many flourishing tupils in the north of Europe, while the last beautiful tulip already withered in Germany one month ago.


End of April 2013 Parco Giardano Sigurta, one of the biggest and most beautiful landscape gardens in Italy, dedicated its springtime theme to the colour variations of the tulip.



They really displayed a fireworks of colours by  having dozens of different fields of tulips, each field riddled with one species of tulips. Or - as a contrast - with many different tulip species.


This colourful explosion was one of my favourite motifs. Once I pressed down the shutter release of my camera, it was hard to come to an end and to turn towards another motif.


I could have posted another 30 different tulip species in different colour and shape...


...but I want to come to an end for today with my white-pink combination of tulips.

Did you know? The tulips's center of diversity is in the Pamir, Hindu Kush and Tien Shan Mountains, so far away from Europe. Nowadays approx. 80% of the worldwide "tulip production" comes from the Netherlands.


Only a stone's throw away from this botanical garden, along the river Mincio, you find the small village of Borghetto, a picturesque fishermen's village and a popular, much frequented tourist site.

  6. All of your tulip shots are perfectly lovely. In some images, I feel as if warping into another world of tulips. I like color explosion of colorful splashes. You’re a wizard of photography, Uwe!

    Stimulated by the approaching typhoon No. 4, the seasonal rain front is moving and it is raining the whole day today. Air feels cooler and I feel refreshed. I hope nature doesn’t go to extreme.

    Have happy days ahead.

  7. Nice shots! To tell you the truth, I have never taken the pictures of tulip rows. I absolutely want to take such pictures like yours! Here tulips bloom early in April.

  8. I couldn't imagine that the color explosion is such enjoyable. It's the interesting project.
    Seeing the fifth photo, I remembered the tulip park in the Netherland I visited before.
    Have a nice weekend!
