Keukenhof – A gallery

A place so beautiful it deserves its own gallery

One of the inspirations of our Tulips & Cheese tour of Holland was a visit to Keukenhof. The place was astounding, and what I thought would be a couple of hours of “Oh, that’s cute” or “Mmmm, that’s nice” actually turned out to be a full day of a mild “Wow”. Holland also demonstrated it could have four seasons all crammed into one day 🙂

Anyway, Janis created her post “7 Million Blooming Reasons to Visit Keukenhof“, and after I had shortlisted the photo’s to help tell the story I had too many left over not to share in my own post.

I have included a couple of my favourites from that post and a whole bunch of others that caught my eye.

And now the gallery

The technical bits

Shot on a Canon EOS 1Dx-MkII, with the 24-70mm f/2.8L lens attached.

The images are catalogued in Adobe Lightroom, before being processed in Adobe Photoshop to correct the Raw images. What is different from my other galleries is the restraint I have had in using Google Nik Collection Filter – HDR Efex Pro 2. That’s not to say I didn’t dip into this most valuable of toolboxes for some other tweaks. My aim is to create an image that reflects the feel of the scene.

As always, any questions about individual images, techniques or even Keukenhof itself, just ask – here to help.


Has this gallery inspired you to visit Keukenhof? I have to say from a photographer’s point of view I loved the landscape, the beauty in the bloom, and the shapes created.

We included Keukenhof as part of a short road trip through Holland, and our base for this leg was Haarlem

(Why not Pin it for Later?

Have You

Seen Holland in bloom? – or indeed visited any of the many other festivals that explode with colour?
